Web3, or Web 3.0, represents the next generation of internet technology, integrating blockchain and cryptocurrencies into everyday online interactions. It's a decentralized online ecosystem where users have control over their data and transactions. Web3 is powered by blockchain networks, providing transparency, security, and trust. It's a key concept in the crypto world, involving various people, from developers and investors to everyday users. Companies are leveraging Web3 to create decentralized applications (dApps), offering users new ways to interact online. Crypto exchanges play a crucial role in Web3, facilitating the trading of digital assets and tokens that fuel the ecosystem.
