What is Web2 and Web3?

Who would have thought that, two centuries ago in 1820 when the world was so different from what it is today? Not only did we gain motor vehicles and electricity but also a whole new way to go about our daily lives. It all started with one invention-the internet! But wait... Who might not accept just yet that this small little thing called "the web" has changed how we live everyday as humans on earth because now there's another era coming up: Web3 which will be much more interactive than before where people can do pretty much anything they want online without actually being present at their desktops or mobile devices.

The World Wide Web was created in 1990, and it gave people around the globe access to information they never before could. The internet of today is based on centralized servers like those from web 1 era which govern data about users' online activities - including what you post or share with others! With smartphones becoming more popular among everyone; high-speed broadband available everywhere worldwide (for some parts); we have entered into another phase: social networking via these devicesβ€”all thanks for this revolutionary technology called β€œWeb 2."

In the world of Web3, or as experts say β€œSemantic Wall” is a concept that uses blockchain technology to host platforms. Blockchains are digital distributed ledgers which can easily keep track all transactions made within its networked environment – this includes hosting applications for social media networks such as Facebook where users share content with each other using these same cryptocurrencies and NFTs found on Ethereum Smart Contracts; streaming services who use them so nobody would have trouble when paying subscription fees due time restrictions but also appreciate not having their data stored centrally unlike before where everything had been hosted at one place leading into more security risks than ever.

If you want to create an application using the blockchain, there are special companies that specialize in this, such as WatchData - an innovative and fast method for interacting with multiple blockchains.
The recent incidents of data breaches have changed people’s mindsets. With Web3, we no longer need to put our faith in a few powerful firms who may or may not protect us from hackers - instead the user control their own information and can sell it back when necessary!
