“WEB3 is not web at all”- says Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee

The Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee isn’t sold on the idea and future plans of crypto visionaries and is bent over that we should ‘ignore’ the said concept. 

The British computer scientist credited for inventing the World Wide Web in 1989-Tim Burner-Lee shared his views on blockchain stating that he doesn’t see blockchain as a viable solution for building the next iteration of the internet. 

Tim has his own web decentralization project named Solid.

In a Web Summit event in Lisbon, Berner-Lee states that it is important to clarify in order to discuss the impacts of new technology,”. He followed the statement by elaborating that “you have to understand what the terms that we’re discussing actually mean, beyond the buzzwords.”

“It’s a real shame in fact that the actual web3 name was taken by Ethereum folks for the stuff that they’re doing with blockchain. In fact, Web3 is not the web at all.”
