Web3 refers to the whole range of decentralized (peer-to-peer) technologies, but which infrastructure is crucial for it? Let’s start with libraries and wallets

Ideologically, Web3 or Web 3.0 is set to replace Web2.0, a generation of Internet infrastructure that pioneered user-generated content. Web3 prioritizes peer-to-peer interactions, when no counterparty can obtain 100% control over the infrastructure.

Starting from Bitcoin and Ethereum, blockchains (distributed ledgers) represent technical implementations of Web3 concept. Two elements are necessary for Web3.0: libraries are utilized to build decentralized applications (dApps) while wallets are actually accounts of Web3.0.
