What is Web 3.0?

Web 3.0, also known as the third generation of the web, represents the next evolution in web infrastructure – an Autonomous Spatial Web, where Artificial Intelligence (AI), Blockchain, Metaverse, Spatial Computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT) all converge. The diagram below illustrates the progression and changing paradigms shaping the web’s evolution: from Web 1.0 – the Wired Web (1990s - 2000s), through Web 2.0 – the Mobile Social Web (2010s - 2020s), towards Web 3.0 – the Autonomous Spatial Web (2020s and beyond).

What is the inWeb3 platform?

inWeb3 helps you demystify the emerging social technological trend towards Web 3.0, regardless of which industry you are from. We are building a platform connecting like-minded entrepreneurs and professionals to capture exponential growth opportunities surrounding the Web 3.0 megatrend early – ahead of the crowd, but safe – beyond the hype.

Why was inWeb3 created?

Riding a social technological megatrend early could be life-changing. The companies that best captured the Web 1.0 and Web 2.0 trends have enjoyed exceptional growth and returns. By 2021, Amazon produced a 175,000% return since its 1997 IPO, Google a 6,000% return since its 2004 IPO, and Facebook a 930% return since its 2012 IPO.

An unconventional example related to Web 3.0 is Bitcoin. Back in 2012, when Brian Armstrong founded the now-largest US crypto exchange Coinbase, Bitcoin was trading at around $5-$6. Bitcoin’s price briefly exceeded $73,000 in 2024, currently hovering around $61,000, representing an over 1,000,000% increase from 2012. Meanwhile, Coinbase’s valuation hit nearly $100 billion during its IPO peak.

Many people miss the most rewarding early phase of a megatrend because they are either unaware of or do not understand it. Others seize it but are forced out during the inevitable early hype, without being able to catch the sustainable growth. One notable example is the dot-com bubble burst at the turn of the millennium before Web 2.0 really exploded in the ensuing two decades. Bitcoin’s journey is even more dramatic. Its early major bull run in 2017 brought the name of the famous cryptocurrency to the masses for the first time, only to see its price crash from $20,000 to $3,000 just a year later. It then enjoyed another bull run reaching $67,000 in Nov. 2021 and has since experienced fluctuations, including the latest peak at $73,000.

As we move further into 2024, we are in the Generative AI boom ignited by the release of ChatGPT in late 2022. There are also significant breakthroughs in consumer VR/AR products, such as Apple’s Vision Pro. All these advancements continue to bring the vision of an Autonomous Spatial Web closer to reality.

Today, the Magnificent 7, consisting of Microsoft (MSFT), Meta Platforms (META), Amazon.com (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), NVIDIA (NVDA), Alphabet (GOOGL), and Tesla (TSLA), have risen to roughly a third of the total S&P 500 market capitalization. Who’s next? By consciously understanding the technologies early and seeing through their hypes, we ought to have a better chance of grabbing the most rewarding opportunities when they actually arrive. As people often quote:

“In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.” ― Desiderius Erasmus

For whom is inWeb3 created?

Since Web 3.0 is a social technological megatrend that is affecting every sector of society, just like what the past two generations of Webs have done to us, we build inWeb3 for people interested in this megatrend, regardless of their professional domain or career role.

You could be in business, engineering, education, healthcare, arts, etc.; you could be an entrepreneur, domain expert, policymaker, student, etc. The point is that even if your work has nothing to do with the Web, per se, if you see the upcoming tide of Web 3.0 clearer and ahead of your peers, you will naturally be leading the transition in your field as it actually happens. Once you are prepared and the timing is right, you may decide to ride the exponential growth by either actively entering the industry, e.g., founding companies or joining professions in that sector, or passively investing an appropriate portion of your portfolio in these disruptive areas.

  1. Balanced Focus on Fintech and Real Economy Sectors

Our focus lies in the integration of Web 3.0 with both the financial sector and real economy applications. While we cover prominent Web 3.0 use cases like Decentralized Finance (DeFi), our primary goal is to explore how these technologies can drive transformation across various real-world sectors. Understanding the intersection between finance and the real economy helps inspire innovative cross-domain applications.

  1. Beyond the Hype, Emphasizing Safe Early Adoption

Unlike platforms that chase the latest Web 3.0 trends, we prioritize a deeper understanding of these technologies. We systematically monitor developments in areas like AI, Crypto, and VR/AR, providing insights that help you navigate beyond the hype. Our aim is to enable early, yet safe, participation in these emerging fields, minimizing speculative risks.

  1. Educational and Professional Development Platform

With our founder’s unique expertise across various Web 3.0 technology domains, business, and community leadership, we strive to build an educational and professional hub. We offer structured, periodic content designed to enhance your systematic understanding of Web 3.0. Additionally, we facilitate community interactions through forums, meetups, and conferences, and connect members with professional development and career opportunities in the Web 3.0 landscape.

What inWeb3 is NOT?

We are not financial advisors and do not offer investment advice. We are not "a website tracking Bitcoin or altcoins price fluctuation" for cryptocurrency speculations. We share our knowledge for educational purposes to help you better analyze the fundamentals behind opportunities in the new era.
