What the Google Antitrust Lawsuit Means for Web 3

This week, the US Department of Justice and 11 states filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google.

According to the filing, Google has used exclusionary agreements with mobile phone and browser companies to become the dominant search engine, controlling nearly the entire search market, all the while acquiring companies such as YouTube and Android to cement its omnipresence.

In short, it’s a monopoly, a totemic institution that controls broad swaths of the tech market and limits user options.

But the web is changing. Web 3.0 is building on the flaws of Web 2.0, and it promises to create more personalized experiences, and redistribute wealth opportunities from the platforms, to the users. Blockchain protocols like PRIVI aim to bring Web 3.0 into the hands of everyone this year.

How the Decentralized Web Transfers Wealth From Corporations to People

The internet of today is broken. We can use the internet, but we don’t own anything we do. Companies control our domain names, the content we host on web servers and our access to the internet.
