What Are Decentralized Apps?

Decentralized apps (DApps) are applications that are built on top of decentralized systems, such as blockchain technology. They are designed to be open, transparent, and secure, and to operate in a decentralized manner without a central authority or single point of control.

One of the main advantages of decentralized apps is that they are not controlled by any single entity, which makes them resistant to censorship and interference. This means that users can interact with the app and trust that their data and transactions will be processed fairly and transparently.

Decentralized apps are typically built using smart contracts, which are self-executing contracts with the terms of the agreement between buyers and sellers being directly written into lines of code. Smart contracts enable the automation of complex processes and enable the creation of decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs), which are organizations that are run entirely on the blockchain.

There are many different types of decentralized apps, ranging from financial applications and prediction markets to social media platforms and gaming apps. Some well-known examples of decentralized apps include CryptoKitties, a blockchain-based game that allows users to collect and breed virtual cats, and Augur, a decentralized prediction market platform.
