Learn About Web3
We support programs that educate the public about how the internet works and what a decentralized future means for business, governments, and consumers alike.
The Internet has always been inherently about decentralization.
The first Internet protocols decentralized computing and allowed users to consume digital content. The second iteration ushered in the World Wide Web by enabling users to consume, create and share digital content together.
After a period when a few large, centralized companies consolidated this environment into a handful of platforms, engineers and technologists are now building the next evolution of the Internet. New protocols and new applications will allow users to independently consume, create, and engage with digital content. These changes will radically transform the Internet as we now experience it, resulting in enormous potential to create a better Internet.
