The idea behind the concept of Web3 is to involve users in building decentralized products and services and reward them according to their contributions.
Therefore, Web3 is a concept that has emerged from the development of blockchain technology and the cryptocurrency market. As the history of Bitcoin (BTC) has shown, maintaining a stable and secure decentralized network requires that financial network participants receive financial incentives. Only in this way can you be motivated to use high quality and effective services.
To reward users of the Bitcoin network for their good services, Satoshi Nakamoto created a financial incentive mechanism that promotes competition between entities that keep the system running smoothly and is paid for as a token.
In the case of Web3, user participation goes beyond validating transactions and maintaining network security as in the Bitcoin blockchain. Web3 protocols offer rewards to users who participate in initiatives that add value to the ecosystem. Product and service development, governance decisions, providing liquidity for decentralized financial services (DeFi), or providing data storage disk space.
In short, there are many ways to help the Internet grow and consolidate in the new era, and there are new ways to come. Until recently, participation in such activities required a certain level of knowledge about blockchain technology or financial systems, which limited access to ordinary citizens without specialization in these specific areas.
This year, however, a new trend is emerging in the cryptocurrency industry. It promises to make Web3’s financial incentives available to a wider audience, as the prizes are distributed through specific actions that take place in the real world.
