Web2 Vs Web3

The only constant thing is change as the saying goes, and the web/internet is no exception.

The web has gone through grand breaking evolutions and phases starting from the initial stage which is generally referred to as web1- era of static web pages, web2- the current phase and web3- the new era we are entering.

While the web is a broad endless topic of discussion, this article will be focused on the differences between Web2(current phase of the web) and web3(the new phase).

Some Key differences between Web2 and Web3.


Decentralization is a core tenet of Web3. First off, there is no central authority controlling content and imposing indiscriminate censorship. The more decentralized a platform is, the more censorship-resistant it becomes.

Trustless and Permissionless

Web3 is trustless and permissionless, which means participants can interact without permission from a trusted intermediary or governing body. Applications in Web3 run on decentralized peer-to-peer networks. That’s why they’re called decentralized applications, or dApps, rather than “apps.”
