The rise of the Metaverse concept began when Facebook changed its name to Meta, a term derived from the Metaverse. Since then, everything about the concept of the meta-universe has been taken by Sequoia, Samsung and other large capital warehouse, the meta-universe has also become a decentralized utopia in people's hearts.
However, many people in the industry believe that Web3.0 is the absolute foundation for the creation of the metasexes, and if the metasexes are separated from Web3.0, it will be absolutely useless. So is this really the result? Next, let's take a look at the current environment.
From "to Web3.0
Since we are talking about Web3.0, there will be a web1.0-web 3.0 transition. Web1.0 was the first development stage of the Internet, in which users were pure content consumers and content was provided by websites, a typical example being news portals, with little interaction between users. Of course, Web1.0 is not completely devoid of interaction or payment capabilities, but these capabilities are severely limited by the inability of the transfer infrastructure to secure them. The most innovative company in the era of Web1.0 was pizza hut, which developed a web page for ordering pizza in 1995, where consumers could place orders and pay for the products when they arrived.
Obviously, although Web1.0 was built on open, decentralized, and community-managed protocols, Web1.0 was a readable network, and users in the Web1.0 era could not interact with the content of a page. Also, as the number of users increases, Web1.0 presents more and more problems.
The birth of Web2.0 is mainly to overcome the limitations of Web1.0. Compared with Web1.0, the main advantage of Web2.0 is that users can interact with the network. Of course, the birth of Web2.0 is inseparable from the transformation of Internet technology. Due to the development of Internet speed, fiber optic infrastructure and search engines, users' demand for social networking, music, video sharing and payment transactions has increased dramatically.
Users' desire for social attributes has spawned many of today's Internet companies. Social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter provide users with social features; Data-sharing software such as Naspter satisfies demand for music and video; Google provides a shortcut for users to search the vast amount of information on the Internet......
This new, more interactive Internet experience brings many new features and improves the user experience. But then came a problem that has remained unresolved to this day: to use these new features, users would have to authorize centralized third-party platforms to manage large amounts of data. As a result, these centralized entities were given enormous power and influence in terms of data and content permissions, and a lot of communication and commerce was concentrated on closed platforms owned by a few tech giants, such as Google, Meta, Amazon, etc., and this model continues to operate to this day.
In the core mode of Web2.0, people's life is almost controlled by the core. The Internet was originally characterized by the democratization of information, but today, information is increasingly unreliable and in some cases harmful. Artificial faces, created by ARTIFICIAL intelligence, can cause more social problems through deep fakes and identity theft. Fake news cost the economy more than $70 billion in 2019, and it's only going to get worse in the future. This gives the emergence of Web3.0 an opportunity.
Web 3.0 became the object of hope - a Web era that broke platform monopolies, a decentralized Internet that users helped build and owned. The advantages of Web 3.0 over Web 2.0 are so obvious that even though it is not yet built and the concept is mostly written in the news, Web 3.0 still has a lot of fans.
Just like the birth of Web2, the arrival of Web3 is closely related to people's desire to solve the problems existing in the Current Internet. Built on blockchain, Web3 promises to return privacy and digital identity to users, while enabling a new level of interaction thanks to non-homogeneous tokens (NFTs) and decentralized applications (dApps).
Blockchain is a highly secure and decentralized network that allows people to store data, exchange value and record transactions in a shared ledger that is not controlled by any centralized entity. Blockchain networks are the backbone of Web3, providing a secure enforcement layer where cryptographic assets can be created, published, and traded, and programmable smart contracts can be developed. Decentralized applications are protocols based on the crypto economy that laid the foundation for the development of Web3 and delivered Web3 into the hands of users.
Web3.0 - the first step to the metaverse
The domestic bytes to beat, tencent and other many companies and industry insiders agree that the universe is an advanced concept, mainly because of its itself based on multiple computer technology and network service, is an extremely complex ecological technology system, not within a short period of time to achieve, and by far the most close to yuan is Web3.0 of the universe.
On the surface, users and capital have shifted their attention from the previous metasomes to the current Web 3.0, but the relationship between them is more than superficial.
According to a report by Constellation, Web3.0 is the lowest tier of the internal economies of the metasexes, with decentralized access control and autonomy. In terms of the current characteristics of Web3.0, Web3.0 actually conforms to the basic fantasy of the current metasurtical world. Namely: low latency (network speed), diversification (AI support), no access restrictions (multi-terminal), creativeness (PGC+UGC), identity friends (distributed database)......
The previously popular panorama of the six technologies of the metasomes, including blockchain technology, interaction technology, Internet of things technology, network and computing technology, artificial intelligence technology and video game technology, are also included in Web3.0, they are the products of the development of the digital age. To sum up, almost all the advances in science and technology that we have seen are actually building the infrastructure for the meta-universe, and this foundation is first called We3.0, which is the general term for the next generation of Internet and the only way for human civilization.
The metasemes haven't arrived yet, but Web 3.0 has made it possible. At a deeper level, "connected" is not enough to describe the relationship between Web 3.0 and the metasemes; they complement each other. From the technical point of view, the meta-universe is the front end, and Web 3.0 is the middle and back end. Only the technical conditions meet the decentralized database required by Web 3.0, that is, the distributed database, as well as the supporting encryption technology and protocol, it is possible to achieve such a grand vision of the meta-universe. Of course, VR/AR and other hardware equipment technology follow. No wonder, then, that many in the industry, especially in technology, see Web 3.0 as the foundation for the creation of a meta-universe.
