https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/what-is-web-3/
Sep 28, 2022 - Web 3 is a set of technologies that combine into new classes of digital services. Web 1 refers to the read-only Internet (1980s–early 2000s) where most users consumed content like encyclopedia entries, directories, and catalogs. Web 2 refers to the read-write Internet (early 2000s–2020) with many killer apps like Google search and Facebook for finding, collaborating, and transacting with each other online. Web 3 is the read-write-own Internet (2020–today), based on blockchain protocols that support online privacy, self-sovereign identity, and property rights to digital assets.

It focuses on the top public platforms—Bitcoin, Ethereum, Cardano, Tezos, Hedera, Algorand, Solana, and Avalanche—and it presents seven criteria for evaluation: security, performance and scalability, development costs, execution costs, environmental impact, the contract language’s expressivity, and research and development funding....

Governance Of Blockchain Systems
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/governance-of-blockchain-systems/
Jun 27, 2018 - Decentralization, hashing functions, public key cryptography, and smart contracts are advantageous design features of blockchain systems. These require the coordination of multiple and diverse actors with differing incentives—cryptoeconomics—to solve any problems that arise. This research examines the impact of governance on these systems. Specifically, it explores governance needs at three levels of the blockchain stack: the Internet layer, the blockchain layer, and the application layer, including the deployment of decentralized applications (Dapps). De Filippi and McMullen explain the difference between governance by the infrastructure...
