The tools we rely on to interact, communicate , understand and make decisions are broken.
Our fallback is trust.
Trust in the same people that want to keep our tools broken.
Were civilisation a person, we would recognise it as self-harm.
There are many factors to this malady
But this is nothing new.what changed?
Power is concentrated now more than ever.
Opaqueness means little accountability.
The errors of the few become the problems of the many, leading to incipient, structural failure.
There is only one means of stabilising.

Web3 is a reliable, robust means of helping your application stay useful in adverse conditions.
Web3 helps your avoid the responsibility you don’t want.
Web3 helps you prove yourself, your identity, your intention.
Web3 is open, extensible and future-proof.
Web3 is a new way of architecting Web applications.

The physical laws used to be the means of ensuring value-capture from services.

Value-capture is currently facilitated by what will become to be known as an archaic and untenable practice: data slavery.
In the new model, value-capture will happen through clear, agile and bi-directional incentivisation frameworks, delivering an efficient and inclusive service market.
Web3 is no single organization, company or person.
Polkadot, ipfs, whisper, ethereum, bitcoin and many others are important components, but many more sure to come.
Web3 foundation will advocate, support and nurture to encourage a positive outcome.
Less trust.more truth.web3.
