The internet will soon evolve from what we use to know today as a space controlled by some big corporations to a completely decentralized space.

Web 3.0 is the next most anticipated iteration of the internet and was widely discussed in 2021 all through this year. However, the Web3 project is still a work in progress but with the vast adoption of NFT, crypto,  DeFi and other blockchain-based applications, individuals, business brands and corporations are massively infiltrating the Web3 space.

The Web3 revolution will finally eradicate the recent Web2 regime and decentralize the use of the internet for all.

What are the companies at the forefront of this evolution?

In this article, we will discuss the significance of Web3 and the top 10 Web3 companies you should know in 2024.

 What Is Web3?

The Web3(Web 3.0)  concept is motivated by the idea of a third generation of the internet. The first iteration of the internet, Web 1.0 allows users to view or read only one website. Subsequently, we evolved to the second iteration of the internet, Web 2.0 where we can build audio and video streaming facilities, connect with people on social media, view and read more than one website and many more, yet it is controlled and centralized around a few groups of tech giants who control user data and the web.

Web3 is anticipated as the next iteration of the internet that will function in a completely decentralized way. Ethereum co-founder Gavin Wood coined the term “Web3” in 2014.

According to Ethereum,  “Web3 adopts decentralization and is being created, operated and owned by its users.” 

What Is A Web3 company?

The definition and description of a Web3 company are not very clear at its core but certain factors make it distinct from a Web2 company.

Firstly, Web3 companies are directed towards decentralisation of the internet to give operational power to everyone.

Web3 companies would not engage in data ownership procedures, that is to say, that you won’t need to provide your data to sign into the platform but you’d rather connect your crypto wallet.

Web3 companies adopt multiple Web3 technologies which could be artificial intelligence, machine learning, crypto, NFTs and other blockchain technologies.
