What is Web 3.0?

Web 3.0, also known as the "Semantic Web," is the next evolution of the World Wide Web. Web 3.0 aims to make the web more decentralized, secure, and private. It seeks to eliminate the need for intermediaries and central authorities by using blockchain technology and other decentralized systems. This will enable individuals to have more control over their data and online identities.
