DApp is the acronym for “Decentralized Applications” or “Decentralized Applications”. This is a type of application, whose operation does not depend on control points or central servers, but works on the basis of a decentralized network. A network in which its users have full control of its operation. DApps allow people to access different services safely. These applications can be used on personal computers, smartphones or even be accessible via the web.
To have a clearer idea of what a Dapp is, we must think of a traditional App (application / service). In this category of traditional apps we have, for example, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. In all these services, data and decisions are made on central servers. This allows the company behind these services to take actions of censorship, behavior alteration, or even benefit or harm only certain users, constantly questioning neutrality and equality of conditions. They act like dictators, you can only trust that they will be “good”.
