What exactly is Web3? 3 Wallet, Consensus Algorithms
Wallets, Consensus Algorithms
On the blockchain, your wallet address is your identity - yes, there is no name, just the wallet address.
A wallet address is like that wallet in your pocket - we need it to store money.
These wallets are either software (e.g., Coinbase, Metamask) or hardware (e.g., Ledger).
The easiest way to learn web3 is to try something out.
Find a platform where you can buy some crypto assets.
Set up a wallet like metamask, transfer the money to another wallet, and see if you can exchange some Token.
Each wallet has a security key that you need to keep to make sure you don't lose it.
In most cases, most people will use CEX to manage their tokens , such as binance and coinbase.
A consensus algorithm is a process used in computer science to agree on a single data value between distributed processes or systems.
Proof of Work (POW) and Proof of Stake (POS) are the two main consensus algorithms.
POW: Nodes (miners) try to solve a problem - the first one to solve it is rewarded - other nodes check if it is correct.
POS: miners solve the problem with their share - other verifiers check it and get a share if it is correct - eventually the block is added to the chain.
