 What is a dApp?

Decentralized application, or short dApp, is an application that runs on a P2P computer network instead of a single computer. dApps have been around since the advent of P2P networks. They are a type of software designed to exist on the Internet in ways that are not controlled by a single entity.

Decentralized applications do not necessarily have to run on a blockchain network. BitTorrent, Popcorn Time, BitMessage, etc. are all traditional dApps running on a P2P network, but not on a blockchain (which is a specific type of P2P network).

Unlike simple smart contracts, in the classic sense of Bitcoin, which send money from A to B, dApps have an unlimited number of subscribers in all areas of the market.


In a “decentralized dApp market”, where dApps can be published, and which differ from current apps such as Gmail or Uber, dApps exist without a middleman, process the information of a user without a third party, and work error-free. dApps connect users and providers directly with each other.

An example is the design of a decentralized Twitter that is resistant to censorship. If you publish a message in the blockchain, it cannot be deleted, even by the company that developed the system with the microblogging program.

However, there is no definition for a dApp because it is a newer concept. A few key features are the open-source code and a program without error points.

This is our brief review about the function of the dApp.
