What are Dapps and what do they do
Dapps are applications that run on a decentralized peer-to-peer network. This means that the dapp will be owned by everyone and no single person will control it, but only the masses who use or provide services for it. Dapp users can fully control their data and how to monetize it because of its decentralized nature. They also have access to the entire network, which allows them to obtain services that the “centralized” applications cannot provide. Dapp users can make their own contributions to the dapp, modify it, and distribute the code if they want other people to use their code.
The first popular dapp was BitTorrent, which is still in use by millions of people today. File sharing between P2P users is not centralized. Rather than a company or a single person being in control of the data, it’s distributed in small parts on multiple computers run by different users. This means that any piece of the data will be able to be shared or uploaded. The network is decentralized and it’s not controlled by a single entity. That’s why dapps are an essential element of p2p networks.

Review of some popular Dapps available today
The first of the dapps that began the craze is CryptoKitties. This dapp matches those who collect and trade virtual cats. Since its inception in December 2017 it has garnered a lot of response, but it is not decentralized like everyone has thought, as it actually uses centralized servers to run itself. The second dapp that was created was a game called Ethercraft which matches users who play the game by buying and selling weapons, armor, and other accessories. The third is not an uncommon dapp like the first two, in fact it’s one of the most common dapps to exist today. This dapp is known as Etheremon, it allows users to capture monsters, train them and fight against other monsters. Lastly I will talk about the dapp known as CryptoCelebrities which matches people who buy, sell and trade virtual celebrities, just like CryptoKitties.
What the future of Dapps holds for us
The future of dapps seems to be growing as more and more users begin to use this innovative technology. This is not surprising since many people have already given up on centralized applications and are looking for alternatives, and this is what the dapp has given them. The future of dapps looks bright, as they have yet to be fully explored by developers. There are many different kinds of dapps and they’re all coming to be released on iPhone devices someday soon. Many developers are also beginning to create dapps for android devices.
This form of application is much more secure than the traditional apps that we use today. Traditional apps are extremely vulnerable to hackers who can easily steal an individuals personal and sensitive information by hacking the server of said company. Dapps are completely avoiding that possibility by being peer-to-peer. This means that every single person who is an active user of the app has their own node that maintains a complete file of everyone’s sensitive information. As long as you make sure your node hasn’t been compromised or lost, then you are in the clear and still safe!
