11.10 - 13:00, May 19th, 2023
Classroom 1.19, Polyvalent 2 Building, Universitat de Lleida
Web 3.0 promises to provide distributed internet services without trusted third parties (TTP), thereby solving some of the traditional trust-related challenges of Web 1.0 and Web 2.0 and offering users more control over their data, at least in theory. Web 3.0 is often characterized by decentralization, tokenization, decentralized identity, cryptocurrencies, and decentralized autonomous organizations, all of which leverage the capabilities unleashed by blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. In this presentation, we will explore a framework for designing Web 3.0 applications that use blockchain and distributed ledger technologies with reference to a range of use cases and exemplary applications.
