The Web3 Foundation will begin by introducing the Web3 technology stack. This framework illustrates the different protocols and projects comprising Web3. This framework is important because the Web3 tech stack forms the base upon which future mainstream decentralised applications will be built. Each component must be aligned in terms of development and compatibility for the mainstream to adopt decentralised technologies. As such, the Web3 tech stack is used as a roadmap for disparate and decentralised teams to coordinate efforts and push development forward collaboratively.

We will provide an overview of what has been developed to date by teams and projects from every major component of the technology stack. Five of the most interesting teams in the space will present their approaches to building these protocols as well as the challenges they are facing. After the presentations, we will conclude the track with a panel and a Q&A with all speakers to dive deeper into the projects, teams and movement comprising Web3.
