Decentralized Web (DWeb) the next step for the World Wide Web

The blockchain is the secure, encrypted technology; it is a decentralized public digital ledger of transactions. Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ether make use thereof to do transactions on it. On the blockchain we aren't reliant on intermediaries and can connect directly to each other. Also payments can be made directly to each other without expensive banking costs - it cuts out the middleman and makes it cheaper.

The blockchain is private and secure. Information can be passed around in many ways from computer to computer - we call it peer-to-peer (P2P). Every computer can act as a server for the others. No central server is needed to host your information, for example, such as your website.

When we got Web 1.0: it was essentially an info of walls and walls of text. DWeb gives the user interaction with dynamic websites and acted more as applications than simply pages of information. Web 3.0 will be a complete reinvention of the web. In the current web, all user data are centralized and gives governments censorship on our information. If this centralized entities shut down all our data all connections are lost. There are also privacy concerns as well as for businesses and individuals.

The DWeb is decentralized and promises to control and will gives privacy. Information can't all of a sudden disappear because someone decides they must. It will be harder to block a site or hack it. The reason being information can come from other places and the blockchain is unchangeable, secure and private.

The Dweb is different compared to the World Wide Web, explain Matt Zumwalt, the programmer manager at Protocol Labs, which builds systems and tools for the DWeb. He explains it a peer-to-peer connectivity where your computer not only request services but provides them. Also information is stored and retrieved differently. Currently we use HTTP and HTTPS links to identify information on the web. This points to content by its location, telling to find and retrieve information from those location using http protocol (rules which governing the format of data sent by the Internet). DWeb protocols use links that identify information based on its content. This does not rely on a single server but files can be stored and passed around in many ways from computer to computer(P2P).
