Introduction

Technological revolutions throughout history have disrupted the status quo of business ecosystems, bringing forth transformative shifts in how businesses function in new and upcoming scenarios. We stand at the cusp of one such technological revolution driven by innovations such as high-speed 5G internet, blockchain, and development in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, the nascent Metaverse, etc. The contemporary Web 3.0 is changing how we exist on the web and the way we interact. At the same time, Web 3 is also inspiring changes in the social, economic, and business angles of the web.

We are on the verge of a technological revolution involving expanding AI and machine learning capabilities, superfast 5G speeds, and blockchain advancements. At the same time, the conversion to Web 3.0 implies inevitable social, economic and business changes. Open-source software, the Internet of Things, and open access scholarly outputs are just a few glimpses of a wide-ranging transformation taking place right before our eyes.

What is Web 3.0?

Web 3.0 has been called many names like "the intelligent web," "the decentralized web," "the people's web," "the semantic web," "3D Web", and "the Spatial Web," etc., all of which are fragmentary characterizations of an evolving successor to Web 2.0. No matter what you call it, the main purpose of this futuristic web remains what the founders of the internet had envisioned: to restore the web to its users.

Blockchain is the foundational technology of Web 3. It enables an anonymous and tamperproof distributed ledger of records which is completely secure and managed by the people. In layman’s sense, Web 3.0 is about democratizing the internet and making it of the people, for the people and by the people. This creates an ecosystem where intermediaries or middlemen are no longer required and everything can be done directly between the transacting parties, thus increasing the value of a service or product. For example, blockchain and cryptocurrency as it is envisioned could possibly make banks redundant and two parties can transfer monetary holdings directly.

The consolidation and control of the internet by a few powerful tech giants has come into question lately. This centralized control of the internet by a select few has turned the internet into a space of profit for them where users have less and less to gain as days pass. Moreover, the internet monopolization has brought about evil sides in the form of data security, data monetization, identity theft, financial losses, privacy concerns, cybercrime and many more. Because of this, people all over have been actively challenging the status quo and there is a rising demand for an internet which is free from the clutches of these powerful dominants.

This means that it is now time to give the power and control back to the people. The only way this could take place was decentralization of the internet and Blockchain has been the key to this so far. Web 3.0 is being developed as a fair and transparent environment where people can surf, interact and transact freely without the fear of loss of data, money or privacy. The new web will be an intelligent and intuitive place powered by Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning which will play its role in making the web semantic and more human.

Blockchain will be the driving force behind the web's data management and collection procedures. With the use of AI and IoT, the technology will combine all the concentrated data and turn it into information that cannot be copied or hacked.

The transformation of the web will have minimal impact on the end users when compared to the impact it will have on businesses. Adapting to this new web will require major changes in the backend. There will have to be major changes in the web stack for a client server model to become more transparent and decentralized. While the technology stack for Web 3.0 is known yet, one can make certain educated assumptions as to what the blockchain technology stack would look like.

Impact of Web 3.0 on businesses

Although Web 3.0 is relatively young and is currently in a very nascent stage, it can not be denied that it will transform many things including the way businesses conduct themselves on the internet.

Benefits of Web 3 for businesses

No third party requirement. 

Blockchain, smart contracts, and decentralized applications all do away with third-party service providers. Because all financial transactions with cryptocurrencies happen entirely between the two parties, they do away with the necessity for banks. Businesses will be able to reduce costs as a result, increasing their ability to compete.

Better regulation compliance. 

Blockchain is an unchangeable public ledger of transactions. It makes it simple for firms to conform to government regulations by preserving transparency.

Greater accountability. 

Looking at the flipside, every transaction can be tracked with the help of blockchain, holding businesses responsible for their deeds. This makes it simpler for customers to purchase goods from well-known companies.

Improved security. 

With Web 3.0, hackers will have a much harder time getting unauthorized access to important information. Blockchain technology has no single point of failure because it is distributed and decentralised, which makes it more difficult to corrupt. Since blockchain data cannot be altered or manipulated, businesses can rest free of the worries of data theft and data breaches.

Improved customer relations. 

By storing all transactions in an open, decentralised ledger, Web 3.0 holds companies directly responsible to their clients. Businesses can take advantage of this customer-openness to forge enduring bonds of loyalty and trust. As a result of the security of data stored on blockchains, customers can have confidence that the information is true and authentic.

Supply chain management. 

Due to the transparency of blockchain, businesses can easily monitor and manage their supply chains in Web 3.0. Businesses that eliminate silos are better able to manage time and costs while immediately identifying any issues with production and delivery services. Businesses can also communicate vital details with their suppliers to facilitate delivery, such as production schedules and contract deadlines.

By using blockchain to create a tamper-proof record of transactions, Web 3.0 technologies can assist to increase transparency and trust between businesses and their customers. Customers can track the whereabouts of their products at every stage of the production process using a real-time supply chain view.

Challenges of Web 3.0

Customer experience difficulty

Initially, it will be a little challenging. Before fully adopting the technology, newcomers might find it helpful to try to understand the structure.

Slow Adoption

It took more than ten years to transition from Web 1.0 to Web 2.0, and it will probably take at least as long if not longer to implement Web 3.0 and entirely revamp the web.

Old websites & apps will require an upgrade.

Organizations will face increased pressure to improve their existing websites and mobile apps as Web 3.0-based websites and applications gain popularity in order to maintain their market share. The new changes will call for a reformed web & mobile app development.

Not environmentally friendly

Environmentalists began to question why we are using so much fossil fuel only to carry out an intricate consensus mechanism once people understood how much energy was going into Bitcoin mining. Before the most recent change to the hashing rate for the miners, some estimate that Bitcoin uses more electricity than a small nation.

Future of the Web

Blockchain technology will continue to play a crucial role in online infrastructure as Web 3.0 technology development continues. Although the web's transformational power continues to benefit the entire world, a growing portion of society continues to prioritize user empowerment. Many people have started to question the status quo in an era where centralized institutions and governments exert control over personal data.

Those who are investigating this developing area of the web are in a good position to profit from expanding momentum. Employing Web 3.0 technologies also gives businesses the chance to implement fresh, possibly profitable business strategies. Whatever the industry, the new web offers a chance to diverge from established revenue sources in pursuit of better answers. Despite constant innovation, it's crucial to remember that Web 3.0 is still in its infancy and that all new technology requires polishing.
