Josh Neuroth, head of product at Ankr, declared “The whole point of web3 is getting ownership and decision-making away from a small group of people, into the hands of the community. It's very democratic”.
Data ownership. When users browse on Youtube, Google, Facebook…their data are monetized by these societies. In Web3, will be a crypto wallet in which personal data never be expand to third parties.
Only users can decide how to enjoy their data!
Privacy. Also privacy will be into a wallet own only by users. Decentralized systems are made to resist to hackers’ attacks: will be very difficult enter into people’s wallet.
Freedom. Also from financial point users will be free. In fact, in Web3, every users are stakeholders. Web 3 will encourage also DeFi and payments with cryptocurrencies.
Honesty. All users will be part of a decision-making system, payments will be traceable and no one can modify database after transactions.

Web1 was under top companies’ control and users can’t had mutual interactions.
The previous internet’s version was focused on a read-only version. This update, added the read-write version. Top societies give content to users and encourage interactions.
Companies take under control traffic on web and start to earn.
With Web2 was born the advertising model obviously monetizing by top companies.
In this version, users can’t have any control or possibility to own something.
Basically, Web3 will be a secure and free system that will protect user in matters of privacy, data retention and gains.
