Web3 Summit successfully wrapped up yesterday. The main topic was privacy and decentralization.
Web3 Summit completed the three-day programme successfully on the evening of August 21st 2019. The summit was held in Berlin, Germany.
Among the many speakers, Edward Snowden addressed the summit via video conference from an unknown location. He stressed the need for a private and decentralized world wide web that cannot be censored or controlled by authorities or companies.
What is Web3 Summit
Web3 refers to the newest generation of web technologies. Web2.0 brought the internet from simple file referrals to web apps. Web3 intends to revolutionize the internet using blockchain and peer-to-peer technologies. This year it was held in Berlin, Germany.
Web3 Summit is organized around a single rallying call: to facilitate a fully functional and user-friendly decentralized web.
Every year the devs and researchers working on lower level protocols and others interested in the latest developments in the decentralized web come together for an immersive and collaborative gathering focusing on the Web3 technology stack, including: P2P protocols. Platform neutral computation language, Data distribution protocols, Blockchains, Transient data/messaging, Encrypted storage, Protocol-extensible developer APIs.
Web3 Summit is an open and collaborative space where the community can create their own programming. Web3 Foundation invites a full line up of high quality speakers, while individuals, teams and projects use the rest of the space for workshops, presentations, AMA sessions – both intimate and large-scale, chilling, and most importantly, hacking. There will always be a large room dedicated to a hackerspace, where you can host a meetup or hackathon, whiteboard some ideas, present to other teams, and get real work done.
