The Decentralized Web 3.0 – Transforming Business and Society. Interview with Marcus Dapp

Published by Mountainblog on .

The convergence of The Decentralised Web 3.0, Digital Sustainability, and Open Technologies with the Internet of Things and Artifical Intelligence will fundamentally reshape the way we do business and govern our societies in the future. While open technologies enabled the masses to create their own digital tools, the decentralised web will enable the masses to create their own transaction networks. The rise of do-it-yourself digital currencies for everyone will see a plethora of economic and social experiments emerge, from digital platform cooperatives to new and more democratic ways to govern our societies. Marcus Dapp‘ interview gives a glimpse of this new world, its characteristics, potential, and what business leaders should prepare for.
