This is the era of privacy and the entire country needs its transactions to be private. They do not want to share any of the financial information but somehow due to advanced technologies, it leaks out. Cryptocurrency is the sector which is a pro in encryption of the information with the assistance of the blockchain. With this wide world using more mobile phones, it is best to introduce the concepts via mobile applications.

One such innovative application is the “DApps or Decentralised applications”. There is no such great difference between the dApps and the normal apps. The normal apps run based on program codes and they are dependent. While the DApps performance based on peer to peer network. Hence got the name Decentralized applications. They function on the blockchain smart contracts.

There are certain criteria in which the dApps stand out as a unique spectrum compared to other applications. They are

  1. They are an open-source platform that makes the platform public to use.
  2. They run decentralized cryptography information to conduct their operations effectively.
  3. Offers and incentives — incentives in form of airdrops for the users are offered from time to time. The incentives are provided as digital tokens.
  4. Protocol — They are crafted based on a consensus mechanism and so it is completely reliable.

dApps are more likely to the regular apps that you have on your mobile device. They may be a gaming app like a casino game app, or token swaps, or any kind of operations in a decentralized manner. Their purpose is to conduct all forms of operations without any interruptions or a third party. They further incentivize the operations through digital tokenization. But there are still doubts about whether a smart contract is a decentralized application. To make it clear, smart contracts do not come under the dApps.

Yes, it is correct that a smart contract is an agreement format between the client and the company but it can be issued to multiple organizations where it ties up with. That deteriorates the purpose of the dApps. But, smart contracts are used as a tool for dApps. Yes, generally, centralized applications will connect with the API to connect with the database. But the decentralized applications connect with the blockchain via the smart contracts making the work more streamlined and effective.

Several decentralized applications operate more efficiently in helping people to operate in cryptos. But we have come up with the top 10 dapps which are popular in the crypto market.

  1. IPSE — It is a decentralized search engine that runs with the assistance of the EOS blockchain under the interplanetary file assistance system. This is considered as an update to the internet mechanism as this IPFS is considered as a replacement to the hypertext protocol. Further, it acts as a priority element in the development of the web 3.0 platform. It is worthy of replacement to the traditional website protocol because it has a strong privacy wall and it prevents unnecessary advertisements or pop-ups to protrude while we are doing our work.
  2. OpenSea — If you want to buy any non-fungible tokens, then Opensea is the only marketplace. It allows the users to exchange their collectible from any form of crypto games out there. That means the goal of this dapp is to make exchanges between various blockchain games hasslefree. Thereby, it provides interoperability and interactivity between various blockchain games. Keeping up with the main aspect of the dapp, the OpenSea do not allow any third parties or intermediaries to conduct any form of transactions.
  3. Cryptokitties — This is one of the most famous decentralized gaming websites as it has become a sensation in the crypto world. This is a community gaming site where you can buy and sell kitties for cryptos and earn the profits for breeding the digital kitties. For each beauty of the kitty, you will be paid accordingly. It is crafted simply that you can enjoy and effectively learn about decentralization through this site. According to certain sources, it is claimed that it had a great impact on the development of the Ethereum blockchain network.
  4. Loom Network — This app is exclusively for those who want to stake the coins and earn rewards. This DApp makes the staking mechanism so simplified so that the entire process takes less time than it would take. Also, the rewards will be given as LOOM tokens for staking as long as you can. At present, they are accepting only the transfer of Ethereum blockchain coins to the LOOM’s Base. The user will have the choice of selecting the validator node that he wants to stake with. This is an endorsement for those stakers who want to stake coins and earn considerable rewards.
  5. My CryptoHeros — This is one of the greatest decentralized gaming apps that originated from Japan. This gaming app is not so easy to play. One such reason is the use of the Japanese language in the app without multilingual support. But it is worth to play as it offers rewards in Ethereum. Also, if you want to join the Prime VIP plan, then you should pay 0.1 ETH per month.
  6. Wink — This is formerly named TRONBET. As its previous game suggests, it completely operates with the TRON Blockchain. This is a crypto gaming platform that includes all forms of games like dice, entertainment games, and poker games. As it is based on TRON, the players who win the games can easily trade their winnings for more liquid choice like TRON or BTT. It is widely prevalent due to its multilingual assistance. Wink requests its users to use the TRONlink or Guildwallet chrome extensions to access their games.
  7. Uniswap — If you want a simplified solution for your exchange process in the Ethereum tokens then Uniswap is a one-stop solution for all your needs. With many apps providing a messy user experience, Uniswap wants to simplify the whole exchange process to be simple. You can also stake your tokens by taking an active role in the liquidity pool. By this, you will receive a cur in Uniswap’s trading margin as a reward.
  8. MakerDAO — It is launched in 2015. It is considered the most efficient project that has been introduced in the Ethereum blockchain. It allows the user to trade in the decentralized platform and it allows the users to borrow DAI stable coins.
  9. Newdex — Newdex is one such decentralized platform that works on the peer to peer technology endorsing the EOs and TRON tokens. Their platform is user-friendly and also presents a clean and attractive user interface. This is completely focused on functionality. No such impositions ao charging fees for the withdrawals and other aspects are going to be made for any sort of trading activity in the Newdex platform.
  10. Karma — We have seen a lot of decentralized apps with unique features including the games site. But what if there is a social media platform that can be decentralized without a centralized server? Yes, here it is. Karma is a social media platform that allows people to share quality content and for that, the community rewards them in karma token. You can withdraw the tokens whenever you need them. But the token is still in the BETA mode.

The world is advancing towards a decentralized phase and the above-mentioned gaming and social media and financial apps are just proof of that. With the emergence of DApps, it is best assured that these DApps platforms will be the game changer among the youth in the upcoming years.
