The same monopoly has continued to the present day. The big tech companies like Facebook and Google have to build gated communities because their business model is built on monopoly. You can’t blame them, the TCP/IP protocol has set the ending since the massive amount of data requires a centralized institution to store and govern. We have an option now.
Passport of Web 3.0
While as we inevitably march toward the web3.0 society, the passport is no longer your restriction of movement since identifiers such as driver’s licenses will no longer rely on a centralized institution or identity providers. Rather, the passport of web3.0 is your trust conduct in an autonomous society. DIDs connect multi-chain data like coin*days, transfer history, and other on-chain activities. Together with verifiable credentials (VCs), people can create their identity at a more granular level, even linking real-world credentials like college degrees and certifications, social media accounts, and government-issued documents such as a driver’s license or passport under one secure ID. The basis of building trust among people with different backgrounds is undoubtedly clarification of one’s identity.
With the DID, You can decide if you want to take over the commercialization rights of your own data. In return, you will have to pay for production and even storage of the data. The reason why you are willing to cover the cost is that the incentive paid by advertisers (or other parties) will exceed it. The data can be your social graph, your chat history and your post with an NFT art attached to it. You will be waking up one day and receive $1000 USD because you share something that went viral and led to serval sales. The money was paid to Mark Zuckerberg before.
