10 core features of Web 3.0 technology

According to Avivah Litan, vice president and distinguished analyst at Gartner, Web 2.0 makes use of centralised services, servers, and software.

Decentralization of data and protocols

Power is not concentrated in the hands of central corporate authorities, but rather in the hands of decentralised autonomous organisations, from which it is distributed to stakeholders.

Decentralized governance

Large digital enterprises and service providers own customer data in the Web 2.0 world, which they mine for revenue.

Redefined data ownership

Blockchain technology necessitates the validation of transactions, which are then recorded in a public ledger for all to see.

Permission-less controls and environments

There is no centralised control, such as that provided by a financial institution, and there are no intermediaries to pay.

Blockchain and smart contract technologies

Web 3.0 users will have private keys that will allow them to access their records on a blockchain.

Utilization of private keys for user authentication

Artificial intelligence, machine learning, and natural language processing are not inherently Web 3.0, but they will be important in Web 3.0 by enabling immersive user experiences.

Advanced AI algorithms

Edge computing is a Web 3.0 foundational technology that will enable support for data-heavy immersive experiences.

Ubiquitous IoT, edge connectivity

Edge computing is a foundational technology for Web 3.0, enabling support for data-heavy immersive experiences such as video, AI, augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR).

Metaverse support

According to Likens, metaverse-like experiences on Web 2.0 are flat and two-dimensional.  On Web 3.0, the metaverse will be three-dimensional.
