Blockchain has made the creation of DApps (Decentralized Applications) a reality. The benefits rendered by DApps considerably out-weigh those presented by Apps (Applications).

Blockchain technology is continuously being touted because of its innovation of creating decentralized systems that have instigated benefits, such as traceability, transparency, and immutability, among others. 

As a result, blockchain has made the creation of Dapps (Decentralized Applications) a reality. The benefits rendered by Dapps considerably out-weigh those presented by Apps (Applications).

No more Undercover Work

At times the notion that the big brother is watching (surveillance) is intimidating because privacy is jeopardized. 

Apps are developed in such a way that information is stored in a centralized system, and this prompts the notion of big brother watching because a user's information can be easily accessed. 

Nevertheless, Dapps run on decentralized networks, such as EOS or Ethereum, and this renders privacy and immutability. As a result, once Dapps are in operation, they are deemed censorship-resistant, and this eradicates any undercover work or the idea of the big brother watching.

Data Hacks are Averted

Access to personal data is an issue of concern to many users. Hackers have been wreaking havoc as they are continuously stealing information from different networks for egocentric motives. Apps have not been spared based on their centralized systems. 

Based on their decentralized nature, developers can customize Dapps in such a way that access to personal data is limited. Additionally, public blockchains, such as Ethereum, have been cryptographed to open-source and secure their code, and many independent developers oversee this process. As a result, Dapps are less vulnerable to breaches and hacks compared to Apps that are engineered by centralized networks. 

New Payment Methods

DApps support cryptocurrency payments, such as Bitcoin and tokens, and this is advantageous to users because they can be easily remunerated, for instance, once they win an eGame. 

You can also be paid in small amounts of cryptocurrency upon your friend’s purchasing recommendations for affiliate links or advertising.

Bottom Line

Dapps are being touted for their decentralized network as they will handle privacy and data breach issues. Moreover, they seek to present transparency about their operations. 

As a result, the decentralized system used by Dapps will give them a competitive edge over Apps because of the immutability offered. Nevertheless, Dapp developers and blockchain creators still need to make Dapps fast and simple to use, as is the case with Apps.
