"The future has arrived, but it is not yet popular."——《The Inevitable》 Kevin Kelly
In the era of Web 2.0, all products rely on centralized platforms, each operating as a closed ecosystem with no privacy, no data, no rights, and no interests. With centralized platforms controlling everything, there's a fear that startups and creators are taking away our own users and profits, and limiting the next generation from expanding presence on the Web, making it less interesting and dynamic.
With the advent of Web 3.0, we are entering a new era of the Internet, which is an open, trust & permission-free Internet, owned by builders and users alike.
Everyone can enjoin it as a fair participant, and their time and contributions on each platform will ultimately translate into tangible value and make them the ultimate beneficiaries.
The world must unlock opportunities for the millions of people who have the ability to create, and enable them to control their digital lives. We have NFT, DeFi, blockchain, smart contracts, Token and DAO, which together enable new forms of human collaboration that can redefine the original work. And help communities make better collective decisions about key issues such as how products are developed, what behaviors are allowed, and how economic benefits are distributed.
What Grok is about to do is to take the power of value creation and profit distribution away from the centralized participants and give it to the global community.
