web3 fcdo funding

The World Wide Web was originally conceived as an open protocol with value shared among decentralized systems and users. This Web 1.0 vision soon became Web 2.0 – highly centralized systems creating extremely profitable technology companies for a blessed few billionaires. Now there is a new vision for the Internet: Web 3.0

Web3 sees a renewed decentralized World Wide Web based on blockchains and token-based economics. Web3 has the potential to open up opportunities for international development organizations to upend traditional power structures in finance, governance and identity. However, Web3 is an emergent concept, which remains hard to define and at times esoteric and changing almost overnight.

£60,000 for Decentralized Web3 Solutions Study

The Frontier Technologies Hub Web3.0 Tender will engage a research, design, or creative partner to identify use cases which hold high potential to address global challenges. The study will identify new opportunities, navigate risks, and explore the impact Web3 could have on FCDO. The partner will work collaboratively to prioritise the most important elements of web3.0 including:

  • Distributed finance (DeFi)
  • Distributed Autonomous Organisations (DAO)
  • Non-fungible Tokens (NFT)
  • Cryptocurrencies
  • Market making

The study focussed specifically on what Web 3.0 means for FCDO’s geographic and technical portfolio, priorities and objectives. The results will feed directly into the design of future programming, including upcoming funding opportunities, seminars and summits.

    I believe, that web3 model garantees much better privacy that is granted to the users. As blockchain + decentralization is the best combination of functions. Utopia p2p https://u.is/ seems to be the bright representative of web3. While many just promise to create something like web3, Utopia p2p exists for 4 years already and provides full anonymity to its users.
