The Next Web: Creating value with Web3
Participation is free of charge and on invitation only.
The stakes are unevenly distributed. Today’s internet favours big, centralised organisations over the individual user. Luckily, decentralised, more autonomous infrastructures have started to shift the needle toward a more user-controlled environment: blockchains, cryptocurrencies, NFTs…
That development is very welcome. For in the future, we will need an internet which enables people to take control of their digital lives. One which unlocks opportunities for everyone, not just big players. In fact, the next web must be one that encompasses digital assets, decentralized finance, blockchain, tokens, and Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs). These are the tools to enable a more equal distribution of power.
Swiss Re, the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute (GDI), and IBM Research who are at the forefront of technological development and innovation have joined forces and gathered leading experts to answer some of the most pressing questions around the next web:
- Why do we need another web?
- What are the key drivers in the shift to the next web?
- What are the opportunities and challenges for companies?
- Who will be the new gatekeepers, users, and creators?
- What will we be doing in the Metaverse in the future?
