Title: Internet 3.0: Decentralize everything

Internet 1.0 is HTML websites.
Internet 2.0 is a social network and user-created content.
Internet 3.0 is the decentralization of everything: decentralization of marketplaces, of resources usage and allocation, etc.

Is Internet 3.0 the P2P of everything?

Examples of decentralization include:

Decentralized exchanges (Ether Delta)
Decentralize computing power (Golem)
Decentralize IP address allocation (JACS)
Decentralize file storage (Filecoin)
Decentralize domain naming (Namecoin)
Decentralize cloud storage (Storj)
Decentralize databases (BigchainDB, IPFS)
Decentralize financial services (Bitcoin, Litecoin, etc.)
Decentralize protocol approval (Tezos)

We will host a panel of 2-3 startups working on the Internet 3.0 framework as well as professionals who can advise on the framework ( legal, regulatory, etc.) to make this possible.
