About this event

The world is changing fast.

The web we are experiencing today is different just 10 years ago.  What is Web3? The Decentralized Internet of the Future

Think about how the internet affects your life on a daily basis. Imagine how society has changed as a result of the internet and the activities we perform on the web. Social media platforms. Mobile apps. And now the internet is going through another paradigm shift as we speak.

If history has taught us something, it is that these changes will matter a lot.

From how your Identity is managed on the web, to the changing nature of money, education etc, Web3 enhances the internet as we know it today with a few other interesting characteristics.

Web3 enables a new way of building companies through DAO's (Decentralized autonomous organization). Thought leaders say Web3 is a way to spread wealth. Because if billionaires and huge corporations no longer run so much of the internet, then more people could profit from what they're doing on the web.

Interaction with our devices will reach a new level of intelligence when Web 3.0 allows us to ask our phones where a nearby movie theater is and where to go afterward for dinner dates. Eventually, as our devices learn more about the things you like and you will get a response tailored to your interests.

Join us for education, connection, and exploration of the next wave of the web. We are hosting founders, investors, Thought Leaders, evangelists and creators around the globe. Join us as we work together to bridge the knowledge gap from Web 2.0 to Web3!, building human-centric products, impacting diverse communities, and more.

We can’t wait to see you there!
