Currently there’s 1000s of DApps in development, some of them DApp projects in the works and many Live Dapps!
Decentralized apps, otherwise known as dApps offer potential for fair, automated, secure and trustless software and applications. There is a thorough dynamic list of virtually every known Ethereum DApp including basic info, such as description, development status, social media profiles and website URL link on Ethercasts.
Here’s Five examples of transformative DApps that I’m personally really excited about…
Similar to AirTasker or Freelancer but taking less of your hard earned! Ethlance is a decentralized freelancer platform for the exchange of work for Ether, rather than traditional currencies.
Swarm City is a decentralized P2P sharing economy.
Some have called it Uber or Craigslist on the blockchain. It requires users to have a Swarm City Token in order to pay for transactions in the ecosystem. For more details see our post What is Swarm City?
FirstBlood is bringing Decentralized blockchain technology to the rapidly growing & exciting market of Esports and I’m sure many millions of gamers around the world love to have a chance to be a pro gamer and actually make a loving from ‘playing’ not ‘blogging’. It’s like Pokerstars for gamers, well highly skilled players to monetize their time or just plain gambly gamers.
The Esport industry is predicted by many to see rapid growth over the next few years and beyond.
Bitshares is basically the original Decentralized Exchange (DEX) built on a blockchain and operates as a true DAO providing decentralised Blockchain banking & financial services such as a trading platform that can do the volume of the NASDAQ but in a truly decentralized P2P manner. If cryptocurrencies continue to see centralized exchange hacks and old guard defensive regulatory attacks, which is almost certain, the growth of Decentralized Exchanges (DEXs) seems similarly likely. What is a Decentralized Exchange?
The Bitshares utility token (BTS) has multiple functions on the platform and is used to pay exchange trading fees and financial services (eg. loans and gold, silver & fiat-pegged tokens). Much like like Bitcoin, Bitshares has been designed as a limited supply deflationary currency governed by the community.
Bitshares, like all great Blockchain projects is open-source so it will never have a monopoly in the DEX space but is likely to remain one of the most used and respected in the world, many more great DEXs will continue to be built on the blockchain and co-exist in the growing decentralized ecosystem.
Aragon is a project we’ve been covering for some time now, for good reason. Aragon have ambitious yet inspiring goals.
“we believe decentralized organizations can solve the world’s worst problems”
The Aragon DApp aims to disintermediate the creation and maintenance of organizational structures by using blockchain technology. Anybody will be able to use the Aragon DApp to create their own Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO), effectively creating a borderless business or organisation using token economics on the Ethereum blockchain. “We want to empower people across the world to easily and securely manage their organizations. We provide the tools for anyone to become an entrepreneur and run their own organization, to take control of their own lives”,
by making it possible for everyone in the world to organize, we are enabling a borderless, permissionless and more efficient creation of value.
