Blockchain is proposed to be the foundation of web3.0 as a technology notable for its decentralized and democratized characteristics. Usually, it is regarded as a distributed ledger that integrates a number of technologies and philosophies, including cryptography, the consensus mechanism, the incentive mechanism, etc to create the trust between two individuals. This perfectly apt to the web3.0 concept. The Web3 vision is "read-write-own," in which users own the data they generate and tech giants will no longer have monopoly. Because web3.0is decentralized and semantically dependent on user behavior, it is essential that the zero-trust architecture is developed first. What’s more, to gain access to web3.0, an identity management system must be designed, where Frameworks for blockchain technologies fall into two categories: self-sovereign identity (SSI) and decentralized trusted identity (DTI). also, for resource description and data verification, it is necessary to establish decentralized identifiers (DID) and link the data to identifiers using a DID document. Specifically, web3.0's underlying technology is a distributed operating system, which embodies the concept of user-centric decentralization. A blockchain-based system may be the solution; therefore, the technology merits additional research and development. In addition, excellent incentive and consensus mechanisms are essential for the network's long-term success. It is also worthwhile to investigate ways to reduce the consensus cost and attract more network administrators. Web3.0's robustness is dependent upon communication, networking, storage, and computing. In a distributed, decentralized system, this is also closely related to blockchain technology, which merits further study.

To more thoroughly explore the potential of blockchain and web3.0 and promote their progress, this feature topic will provide a forum for the most recent blockchain and web3.0 research, innovations, and applications, bridging the gap between theory and practice in the design.
