[EVENT: OCTOBER 23, 2021]: Introduction to Web 3.0 – The First Kenyan Event by FileCoin

Web 3 technology (also known as Web 3.0) is an emerging technology paradigm that strives to make the web more decentralized, peer to peer, and distributed.

The technology seeks to decentralize content, applications, and data management, and to provide users with increased autonomy and ownership over the data they create thus building on the existing web, and adding new functionality to it.
