Telephone. Mobile Phone. Smart Mobiles.
Every technologist in this world is trying to make the world a better place to live for humanity. Blockchain developers are not in a way back, even though it’s just a decade old!
Cryptocurrencies have paved the way for blockchain technology. Open-source blockchain has opened the doors for decentralized applications of different sectors in recent years.
Unlike traditional apps, DApps avoids the central point of failure and head towards a consensus mechanism of the community goal. The best part of DApps is that it avoids intermediaries that are prevailing in conventional apps.
Let’s get into details of the difference between traditional apps and dapps, features, and categories!
What makes DApps distinct from traditional applications?
Traditional applications run on their wheels with two elements, so-called:- Front end and Back end. Every application has a front end application, hosting service, database, and much more to complete the tasks.
Even the popular applications of the world with millions and millions of users are hiccupping up to protect their user’s data from prying eyes. The most used applications of all times ever since discovered(for instance, Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, Instagram, and other social media profiles ) have a single hosting service. This means that hackers have to disrupt the single window of hosting service to steal our data of personal interests.
Data protection officers promise a lot about the security standards followed in giant brands, but none could assure the users as they are hosted on centralized servers.
Now, the blockchain developers have flip-flopped the situation with DApps! Thanks to the crypto coins and underlying blockchain tech!
DApps, too are on the pace with two elements but distinct at the back-end with blockchain technology. A blockchain network is decentralized, tamper-proof, immutable, consensus by its nature, and so DApps are!
DApps are built-in trustless, decentralized blockchain network, and hence the data is decentralized. The community peers have their copy of data, and miners approve the transaction over the blockchain network after verification. By avoiding the central point of failure, inculcating consensus goals, improving data through verification, DApps could stand for more decades in this market!
Let’s jump to the mandate features of any DApp!
Features of DApps(Decentralized Applications)
The three essential aspects of DApps brought down traditional applications in the market.
Here’re those powerful features!
Open to all!
Unlike traditional apps, DApps can be built with open-source blockchain networks like Ethereum. There are open resources to patch up the decentralized application according to the clients.
Another aspiring aspect of DApps is that consensus mechanism and decentralized data is available across the network. Hence, network peers can view through the data transactions in the blockchain application. There is no central authority to drive the DApps, and hence the entire community helps in achieving the goals.
The entire community of DApps performs peer-to-peer transactions and would abide by the norms of the community goals. Without fulfilling the regulations, the miners don’t approve the transaction to be added to the network.
More than 50% of the community members must agree with the transaction to be added to the network data. Hence it’s really hectic to modify the data once added, making them immutable.
DApps paves the way for easy-breezy global business. Instead of establishing the franchises on different geo-locations, with just a small head office, dapps can spread your business across the globe.
Depending on the requirements, decentralized applications can be hosted on distinct servers. Data, community peers, and their copy are decentralized in DApps, making it safer from hackers.
Now, let’s conclude this blog post with a brief view of the classification of DApps based on their functional aspects.
Blockchain’s a very interesting technology that will have some very profound applications for society over the years to come.Kenneth C. Griffin
Categories of DApps
Based on financial functionalities, DApps are categorized into three types.
Financial DApps are those that are entirely dedicated to cryptocurrencies, banking, and other financial services. Verifications of the finance, reconciliations, and other operations are headed by the community peers with consensus goals.
This kind of decentralized application is functional with finance and data transactions. Funds management, insurance sectors, and other financial related sectors can opt with this type of semi-financial dapps.
The most popular functioning decentralized applications are widespread across different sectors. Online voting, medical data management, and much more decentralized data are hosted through functional dapps.
Decentralization would be the best aspect of the upcoming digital era. With a distributed network of data, consensus goal dapps can be introduced into every sector. The leading brands have already begun their footsteps in establishing dapps.
