Web 1.0

Web 1.0 was released in the early 1990s when the internet was first becoming widely used. Web 1.0 was primarily a static, read-only infrastructure that lacked many of the more advanced functionalities found in Web 2.0. The infrastructure of Web 1.0 was made up of many companies that were mostly unable to maintain their internet monopoly because they were replaced by more interactive, capable systems that became more common in the early 2000s. Many people believe that a new era of the internet is on the horizon, as blockchain systems seek to foster a more sophisticated, democratic, and user-centric version of the internet: Web 3.0.
