The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Web 3.0

Decentralized networks are trustless – the participants involved do not need to know or trust each other or a 3rd party for the system to function. Due to the client-server relationship, Web 2.0 applications are reliant on centralized servers/services, which means users must inherently trust this central authority (person or entity that owns/operates the servers).

In a decentralized p2p network, there is no central authority. Users are the owners and operators of their data, and trust resides with the software itself (rather than the operators).

Decentralized networks are more secure. It’s in the name: peer-to-peer. Data is directly uploaded from one peer and downloaded by the other without using a middle man (central server).

Why consider an open source data catalog

A majority of companies struggle with wrangling and organizing their data. More than 60% of respondents surveyed in O’Reilly’s State of Data Quality 2020 said they suffered from too many data sources and inconsistent data, making that the most common data quality issue cited. The second was disorganization in data stores and a lack of metadata, which nearly half of respondents cited.

A data catalog could help resolve such problems. A data catalog uses metadata to create an inventory of data assets held by an organization. Users can search a data catalog for the data they need, organize it, manage it and understand its lineage. As such, it helps support not only data discovery, but data governance as well.

What Is Web 3.0 & Why It Matters

The forthcoming wave of Web 3.0 goes far beyond the initial use case of cryptocurrencies. Through the richness of interactions now possible and the global scope of counterparties available, Web 3.0 will cryptographically connect data from individuals, corporations and machines, with efficient machine learning algorithms, leading to the rise of fundamentally new markets and associated business models. The result is akin to a “return to the global village” — daily immersion in the human-centric & highly personalised interactions from which we used to benefit, yet now delivered at the global scale of the internet and supporting an ever-increasing myriad of human and machine skills specialisations.
