5 Best Web3 Practices Today

The rapid advancement of technology is now forcing the internet to evolve in a drastic fashion. This means that a new epoch in the Digital Age is about to unfold. The internet that we used to know is undergoing immense changes, some of which, for a long period of time, have only been subjects of science fiction.

Imagine. Who would have thought that a virtual community was indeed possible, or that we would stand here today as testaments of its thriving life? Only the optimists, methinks, the ones who always turned to utopia for a will to live.

Now, as the internet begins its transition to the third phase, popularly known as Web3 in the digital world, laypeople like ourselves are starting to ask hard questions. How different is this from its predecessors? What are the practical perks? What could be the risks along the way?

Take a look at the 5 best practices below to answer your questions.

Deliver clear and full information

The present internet, or the Web2, is admittedly plagued by various errors, suspicious activities, and sketchy algorithms. That is why automatic prompts are always present to remind or warn us about these risks.

In Web3, prompts deliver clear and full information. The regular user no longer needs to read intensively through a labyrinth of information, most of which are unfamiliar and confusing to us. Why? Information in Web3 prompts are summarized for the sake of brevity and clarity.

Put value above technicalities

A pet peeve that throws off clients who frequently use the internet is technicalities. Most of the internet users are lay people. In other words, they lack the know-how and skill sets to fully comprehend digital content that only software developers are cognizant of. The third internet phase is more user-friendly. The layout, for example, prioritizes function or value over the technical aspect.

Employ simpler actionable routes

Aside from the prompts, which basically remind users of what to do, actionable routes are one aspect of the internet that many do not seem to understand…yet. Instead of providing guidance to users who maneuver through the digital space, they feel more lost than found because of their occasional complicated algorithm. On the other hand, actionable routes in Web3 are much simpler and more convenient. Watching Netflix on Web3, for example, is a flawless experience.

Ensure that security is in place

Even if Web2 is a much more developed version of the internet (it is the one we are using today), it still does not guarantee complete security for users. For one, security is taken for granted. And another, security threats colonize the digital space faster than they could be taken down. However, in Web3, security is in check. Hacks lose control over users. Suspicious ads are mitigated, if not entirely eradicated. Even the cloud is made impenetrable.

Prioritize transparency of transactions

The internet is not the same as the physical world we live in. There are details on the internet that can slip under the digital fabric. Having Web3 as the next internet phase, all the transactions we perform in the digital world are kept open. This, however, does not mean that everyone can now start encroaching through our privacy. What it wants to establish are transparency and accountability in the context of the digital space.
