Why collect educational resources?

Blockchains, hashgraph, and the interplanetary file system (IPFS) are all very new technologies emerging into what's being called "Web 3.0".

I find many trying to learn these new systems have a hard time deciding where to start, or finding good resources. Not to mention the difficulties associated with seeing where they fit into the larger ongoing trends in the technology industry. So, I thought it'd be helpful to provide a list of educational resources I've found useful.

What is Web 3.0?

"Web 3.0 is a broad movement and group of associated technologies aiming to make the web and internet more decentralized, verifiable, and secure.

The goals of Web 3.0 include (a) trustless infrastructure; (b) removing intermediaries; and (c) giving users power and ownership over their data, identity, security, and transactions.

The technologies add capabilities and functionality for securely linking data and programs, cryptographic verifiability, transaction processing, P2P connectivity, and trustless interoperability. They also provide decentralized computation and storage, enabling fully autonomous applications (dapps). The movement includes many blockchain and dweb projects, as well as some linked data efforts." - Juan Bennet, Creator of IPFS (2018)
