Even if it is quite new in crypto markets, decentralised applications (named as DApp or dApp) are widely used in distributed computing systems. They reached their popularity with DLT (Distributed Ledger Technologies) and are customised as smart contacts within crypto currencies like Blockchain and Ethereum.
DApps have their backend code running on a decentralized peer-to-peer network, which reflects a completely different structure with regular applications where this code is running on centralized servers. This feature boosts performance of DApps and feeds widespread adoption in every ecosystem. A standard web app runs on a computer system which is owned and operated by an organization, giving it full authority over an app. There may be multiple users on one side, but the backend is controlled by a single organization. DApps can run on a P2P network or a blockchain network that run on computers which are part of a P2P network, whereby multiple participants are consuming content, feeding or seeding content, or simultaneously performing both functions.
DApps provide wide similarities with traditional Web-based applications. The frontline uses the same technology to render the page. It contains a “wallet” that communicates with a blockchain platform. The wallet manages cryptographic keys and the blockchain addresses. Public-key infrastructure is used for user identification and also authentication if necessary. Instead of an API connecting to a database, a wallet triggers activities of a smart contract, which interacts with the blockchain platform.
DApps are pieces of decentralised structures that communicate within blockchain based platforms for managing state of all network actors. Interfaces of the decentralized applications are similar with widely used mobile applications today. Smart contracts, which are integral building blocks of blockchain platforms, represent the core logic of DApps. With smart contracts, processes on DeFi provide a wide range of information from external sensors or events and help the blockchain for managing the state of all network actors together.
