Get to know Web 2.5 and The Role in the Industry
The Internet has been present for more than 50 years, in its journey there have been two generations present. Web1 is just information available on the web. Web2 allows users to interact and make web pages more interactive.
The next generation is Web3 which will bring the world of the internet to a different level from the previous generation, with various innovations that are trying to be presented, from blockchain, crypto, decentralized technology, NFT, Metaverse to AI.
But like any new technology, Web3 is still quite abstract to implement. One way to make Web3 acceptable to previous generations of Web users required some kind of link, known as Web2.5.
Web 2.5 describes the blockchain business that lives between Web2 and Web3. The idea behind this is that consumers want the advantages of a blockchain-based platform. However, they didn’t want the hassle that often comes with blockchain-based systems, so Web 2.5 would make it easier for people to adopt Web2 to Web3 and less trouble if people switched to Web3, entirely.
With Web2.5, several well-known brands began to enter Web3. Among other things, Nike announced the creation of .SWOOSH, a Web3 platform now in beta testing for creating online digital communities. Fans can create interactive digital objects in the form of t-shirts, shoes and more.
Likewise, Starbucks started its blockchain-based loyalty program last December. Starbucks Odyssey, which will offer coffee-themed NFTs and a loyalty program that goes beyond offering free drinks.
