What is Web 3.0?

Web3 enhances the internet as we know it today with a few other added characteristics. Web3 is:

  • Verifiable
  • Trustless
  • Self-governing
  • Permissionless
  • Stateful
  • Native built-in payments

In Web3, developers don't build and deploy applications that run on a single server or that store their data in a single database (usually hosted on and managed by a single cloud provider).
