The previous article touched upon some definitions of Web 3.0 and how it operates. In this next blog post in the series, let’s delve into the implementation of a website based on the standards of Web 3.0 and Blockchain.
To refresh your memory, you can revisit the previous article here!
Create a web page simulating tamsudev.club.
All data is stored on IPFS (a distributed file system that connects devices peer-to-peer, distributing storage data using the P2P protocol, considered as an alternative to HTTP and a decentralized database of the blockchain).
Flow of this web page:
- When clicking on any company on the homepage, the web page will redirect to the company review page.
- The comment data from the company review page, upon submission, will be stored on IPFS.
- Once successfully stored, IPFS will return a unique CID (Content Identifier) corresponding to each stored data, and then save the CID to the Smart Contract.
- To retrieve data, we only need to perform the reverse process, retrieve the CID from the Smart Contract, and use it to call IPFS to retrieve the data.
B. Steps to Follow
1. Proceed to Create The Basic Website Interface
We need to determine the functions of each page and the data to be stored for each page:
2. Create our own Smart Contract
3. Search for Smart Contract Information
4. Save the new address of the Smart Contract
Let’s take an example of creating a new company named “DylanCompany” with the following parameters:
5. Get company data and display the list of companies on the screen
Below is the function to get company data and display the list of companies on the screen:
Thus, we have completed the basic exercise on interacting with Smart Contracts – blockchain and storing data on IPFS.
C. Pros & Cons
- No intermediaries: The network operates based on peer-to-peer interactions, with transactions and data being directly executed without relying on any intermediaries.
- Immutable and permanent data: All data stored on Web 3.0 cannot be deleted or altered, ensuring its permanence and preventing unauthorized modifications.
- Services operate 24/7: As internet activities are operated by nodes rather than specific servers, services can run continuously throughout the day.
- Slower speed: Although decentralized internet offers high security and robust error handling, its speed can be slower due to the need for node verification.
- Less user-friendly for newcomers: Current decentralized technologies can be challenging for new users to access, requiring a certain level of understanding of blockchain technology to utilize them.
- Enormous junk data: The persistent nature of blockchain data and the requirement for each node to store all data can lead to an increasing volume of data on the blockchain.
Web 3.0 network is currently reliable and secure, but it still has some unresolved disadvantages. However, in the future, Web 3.0 may become the standard for new technologies, and we can expect a more perfect decentralized network that addresses its current limitations.
Through the practice of the tamsudev website, we have gained a better understanding of the operating methods of a Web3 website and encountered a new decentralized storage solution on the IPFS decentralized platform.
