More on TBD’s Web5 that Focuses on User Data and Identity
Web5, as envisioned by TBD and Jack Dorsey, is an extra decentralized internet that puts users in control of their data and identity.
According to TBD, the internet is missing an essential layer linked to personal identity. The TBD website further explains how identity will be vital for Web5 and personal data.
We struggle to secure personal data with hundreds of accounts and passwords we can’t remember. On the web today, identity and personal data have become the property of third parties.
Web5 brings decentralized identity and data storage to your applications. It lets devs focus on creating delightful user experiences, while returning ownership of data and identity to individuals.
No New tokens With Web5
Mike Brock, Lead at TBD, further reiterated that Web5 would not have any additional tokens to invest in as is usually the case with Web3.
Let me clear this up right now, everybody: No. There are no tokens to invest in with web5. Kthx.

Crypto Community ‘Corrects’ Jack Dorsey That it Should be Web6.
On a lighter note, crypto community members have been wondering what happened to Web4 for Jack Dorsey and the TBD team to jump to Web5 immediately.
One crypto community member known as @WallStreetPro has questioned whether Mr. Dorsey and the TBD team made a mathematical mistake as the project’s website suggests that Web5 is the product of Web2 multiplied by Web3. He goes on to correct the former CEO of Twitter, as seen in the following tweet.
