The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is an international community that develops open standards to ensure the long-term growth of the Web .
W3C standards define an Open Web Platform for application development that has the unprecedented potential to enable developers to build rich interactive experiences, powered by vast data stores, that are available on any device. Although the boundaries of the platform continue to evolve, industry leaders speak nearly in unison about how HTML5 will be the cornerstone of this platform. But the full strength of the platform relies on many more technologies that W3C and its partners are creating, including CSS, SVG, WOFF, the Semantic Web stack, XML, and a variety of APIs. W3C develops these technical specifications and guidelines through a process designed to maximize consensus about the content of a technical report, to ensure high technical and editorial quality, and to earn endorsement by W3C and the broader community 
Last month, I have accepted as a member of W3C and joined W3C Credentials Community Group  whose mission is to explore the creation, storage, presentation, verification, and user control of credentials. We focus on a verifiable credential (a set of claims) created by an issuer about a subject — a person, group, or thing — and seek solutions inclusive of approaches such as: self-sovereign identity; presentation of proofs by the bearer; data minimization; and centralized, federated, and decentralized registry and identity systems. Our tasks include drafting and incubating Internet specifications for further standardization and prototyping and testing reference implementations .
We had Web 1.0, it transformed into Web 2.0. Now, we believe that it will transform again and think that Ethereum may be the future of the internet as Web 3.0. So, being a member of a consortium which drives the standards of the Internet is a great place to contribute.
