  • A Simple Guide to the Web3 Stack

    There are many definitions, but we generally think of Web3 as a trustless, permissionless and decentralized internet utilizing blockchain technology. The defining characteristic of Web3 is ownership . The first iteration of the commercial internet (Web1) was read-only for most users, while Web2 allowed users to read and write on centralized platforms (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc.), while Web3 empowered users with their content, data and full ownership of assets through the blockchain, which enables users to read-write-own. Where a third party like Facebook owns your identity and data in Web2, your identity…

    Although our picture of Web3.0 is not clear, in the wave of embracing Web3.0, “XX-to-earn” has become a promotion method for major decentralized platforms to “train” the first batch of seed users. As the “workers” in the circle, we have no reason to refuse the “invitation” of “making money while experiencing experience”. Of course, today’s Web3.0 world is still a new world with no foundations developed yet. We expect a richer professional ecology in this world, so we will also keep track of the growth of this Web3.0 “worker” and change….

    Summary   With the help of distributed technology (blockchain), Web3.0 will subvert the Web2.0 Internet from the perspectives of openness, privacy and co-construction, create a decentralized world dominated by the user community, and reconstruct Internet traffic value paradigm. In the era of Web 2.0, with Internet giants as the core, multiple ecosystems have been formed. Core Internet companies have monopoly on data, value and network effects, and there are strong barriers between ecosystems.The most important resource in the Internet world is the traffic entrance (user attention and capital flow).

  • In-depth analysis: 7 common voting mechanisms of DAO

    In most DAOs, Tokens carry a role similar to that of stocks for joint-stock companies, including carrying ownership, governance decision-making rights, income rights, and so on. For a long time, the main form of voting rights of DAO is the simplest form of one token, one vote (1T1V). However, this arrangement has many drawbacks. Users with a small proportion of currency holdings take a “rational indifference” attitude towards participating in governance, just like a saying: “If you say it, you don’t say it”; this further leads to the centralization of voting rights…

    What is DAO? DAO is usually considered to be a decentralized form of a company or entity organization. Although it is more business and practical to understand DAO from the level of company or entity organization, we need to make it clear that DAO is not a specific organizational entity, but a general organizational form. DAO’s management and operating rules are encoded on the blockchain in the form of smart contracts, so that it can operate autonomously without centralized control or third-party intervention. Through intelligent management methods and token economic…

  • Truora: The oracle of the alliance chain

    Blockchain is a deterministic and closed system environment. Smart contracts must have consistent results no matter when and where they run. Therefore, the virtual machine (VM) cannot allow smart contracts to have network calls, otherwise the result is uncertain. Smart contracts cannot directly obtain real-world data outside the chain, resulting in the separation of the blockchain from the real world, and greatly restricting the application scenarios of the blockchain. The mechanism by which information outside the blockchain is written into the blockchain is generally called an oracle. How to connect…
