What is a dApp?

Decentralised applications (D-Apps) are digital programs that run on a blockchain of peer-to-peer network, rather than the control of a single authority.  Bitcoin is the most popular example in today’s age, where it allows direct interaction between users and providers.

FEATURES

Features of a D-App

They run in Decentralised Environments

Transactions [or Records] linked to each other by cryptographic validation ensuring immutability and tamperproof data.

Trust and transparency

Operating autonomously and allowing anyone to inspect the code injects a new level of trust and transparency to any computing environment.

Realtime Transactions

Users are able to transact with each other directly without the need for central mediators like banks and/or human intervention.

User Privacy

The need for private user credentials are eliminated and replaced with a system of public and private keys [or PKI/Public Key Infrastructure].

No Borders

Since DAPPS operate in distributed systems, they are unstoppable, DAPPS cannot be hampered by any human, government or corporation.

Consensus Protocol

Consensus

Consensus algorithms are the mechanism through which records and transactions are validated and processed based on a majority vote, this eliminates the need for human intervention.

Future

The Future of D-Apps

Rapidly evolving, we can expect the D-Apps landscape to have impressive new functionalities and use-cases for blockchain technology in the near future.

Do you think D-Apps are the future or just a fad? Well for sure they have sophistication and potential, but there is still a lack of them around. Let’s see how the world will change because of D-Apps.
