WEB 2.0 VS WEB 3.0

What’s the difference?

What is a Web 2.0 Developer?

Web 2.0 developers are the builders of the modern participatory social web and have a wide array of tools at their disposal. These tools enable them to build much more advanced products and technologies than the developers of the Web 1.0 era, which consisted of static, read-only data; however, there are limitations to what they can do in their non-blockchain-enabled world.

What is a Web 3.0 Developer?

Web 3.0 developers are those ushering in the next evolution of the internet. Web 3.0 developers are merely Web 2.0 developers with an expanded, blockchain-enabled toolkit that comes with an arsenal of powerful new tools. These tools allow Web 3.0 developers to bake new features into their applications, such as provable digital scarcity, cryptographically-secure tamper-resistance, composability-by-default, and so much more.

CHOOSE

YOUR PATH

Choose your own adventure based on your experience and level of expertise

LEARN / EXPERIENCE

WEB 2 DEVELOPER

If you haven’t tinkered with Ethereum, you probably fall into this category. By following this path, you’ll first be exposed to the basic concepts of blockchain and Ethereum, and then progress into experiencing Ethereum first-hand.

EXPERIENCE / BUILD

WEB 3 BEGINNER

If you’ve heard of Ethereum, have a basic understanding of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, and have maybe dabbled in a little bit of Solidity code, chances are that you’ll want to start here.

CONTRIBUTE

WEB 3 EXPERT

If you know the ins and outs of Ethereum and the Web 3.0 space and want to share your knowledge with the community and the world, choose the Expert path.

“The killerness of the ecosystem is not the nodes, it’s the links. Every single application that gets built is not just an application in its own right, it’s also a component that every future thing in the Ethereum ecosystem can benefit from.”
