Web3 is predicted to be a $10 trillion industry by 2026. In contrast to Web2, this new generation of the internet promises open infrastructure, equal opportunity, transparent technology, and a shift from power held by a few to ownership by many. Web3 promises a more democratic, equitable, and inclusive ecosystem. Can Web3 truly achieve a decentralized financial structure? Or is Web3 a centralized entity with a different label? Is Web3 the answer to the distribution of internet wealth for creators, consumers, and internet users? Or is Web3 an experiment: a proxy for new economic ideas on how the Internet should be designed and structured? And will it offer a new model for how individuals should share in this value creation?
