Reforming the World Wide Web

Web 3.0 and Cryptocurrencies

Web 3.0 or else the Semantic Web refers to the third generation of the internet based on standards set by the WWW Consortium (W3C).

The Historical Background of Web 3.0

The term Semantic web was introduced by Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web. He said in 1999: “I have a dream for the Web [in which computers] become capable of analyzing all the data on the Web – the content, links, and transactions between people and computers. A "Semantic Web", which makes this possible, has yet to emerge, but when it does, the day-to-day mechanisms of trade, bureaucracy, and our daily lives will be handled by machines talking to machines. The "intelligent agents" people have touted for ages will finally materialize.”
