Web 2.5 - The Bridge To The New Internet

This informative piece will explore the main benefits of Web 2.5 and how we at Zoop consider Web 2.5 to be our natural habitat.
Web 2.5 - The Bridge To The New Internet

Web 2.0 is the term given to the second iteration of the World Wide Web. It represents the evolution of the internet into a platform that enables users to create, share, and connect online with higher speeds and larger amounts of data. 

Unlike the first generation, mainly a static collection of pages, Web 2.0 is about user interaction and collaboration. This evolution was done by introducing social media, blogs, and wikis, making it possible for users to interact and share information effortlessly.

Then we have the infamous Web 3.0. Although it has been discussed for some years with serious hype, it is still a romantic view of how we will interact and use the internet and, more importantly, who owns the content available. This is precisely where blockchain’s most vital selling point comes into play, as decentralization eliminates intermediaries in virtually any industry. 

So, Web 2.5 represents bridging the gap between Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 while making the transition seamless. You do not need to be a tech expert to create and share content online and still get paid for your creations. Good examples are platforms like Opensea, SuperRare, and Nifty Gateway, where anyone can become a publisher or creator and receive the full value for their work.

The Benefits of Web 2.5

There are myriads of advantages that users can explore by using Web 2.5. Here we will be discussing the two most important ones.

Become Accustomed to Web 3.0 Features

Before jumping head-first into a fully decentralized or automatized environment, customers or users need to engage with some Web 3.0 features (like asset ownership and earning in-game assets) while keeping their current infrastructures.

For example, many gaming platforms are now adopting the play-to-earn concept, which gives users a more engaging way to play their games by allowing them to compete against each other and earn in-game assets as a reward for their accomplishments, as well as giving them complete ownership over their assets. 

Wait for Web 3.0 Infrastructures Without “Missing The Boat”

The truth is that, even though Web 3.0 assets have received recognition and adoption, the Web 3.0 infrastructure is lagging.

Whether we talk about more powerful computers or more spending on software and developers, the truth is that being able to incorporate features of the new Web into the current infrastructure is a big win. 

It allows companies to take a step further and keep innovating and improving their product or service while waiting for future developments and learning from the companies that can spend more resources on developing the infrastructures. 

What Makes Zoop The Web’s 2.5 Poster Child?

As we mentioned before, the idea behind Web 2.5 is the combination of Web 3.0 assets with Web 2.0 infrastructure. For example, businesses trade their products and services through centralized Web 2.0 platforms such as Facebook, Amazon, or Upwork. However, now, individuals can trade Web 3.0 assets such as digital collectibles using the same Web 2.0 infrastructures.

Zoop leverages this advantage to create solutions and explore Web 3.0 features in several ways: 

  • Our digital trading card platform is built on the Polygon Edge blockchain, though our users don’t  need to have a comprehensive understanding of the technology;
  • Our custom-designed celebrity cards become assets through NFT technology, and once more, our collectors do not need to know every single aspect of this tech;
  • We accept credit card USD payments, so there is no need to own any cryptocurrency to buy your first Zoop cards and start trading;
  • Every card that you buy in Zoop cards is retrievable. You can withdraw to a personal account and trade on the secondary market, giving the collectors full control of their digital assets.
  • Priority Pass holders will have voting rights on future perks within the platform;
  • Finally, we will soon introduce our token into the ecosystem, which will allow users to be rewarded, even though they might not be familiar with such an asset class.

Conclusion

Blockchain has impacted every existing industry, from finance to data storage and entertainment. Web 3.0 is the next big thing, and global businesses are doing their best to avert extinction and partake in the transition.

Here at Zoop, we are pushing to bring a revolution to the world of entertainment by connecting celebrities to a broader audience by embracing new technologies and extracting maximum value from Web 2.5.
