There was a lot of invention in this era, and it all began here.

Facebook and e-commerce are two examples of Web 2.0, or simply Web2, which is the internet as we know it today.

During this time, connectedness is stressed; you may speak with friends, get quick answers to any query, and purchase almost anything online.

The "Semantic Web," as it was dubbed by the World Wide Web's creator, Tim Berners-Lee, was one of the first predictions of Web 3.0. 

Berners-Lee predicted that the internet would evolve to a point where computers could communicate directly with each other. 

Even though the blockchain and smart contracts have been around for a long time, we now realize their presence.

When smart contracts are built into blockchain protocols, the Semantic Web can function as expected.
