42 Trending Decentralized App Businesses [2023]
Start A Decentralized App

Decentralized apps are digital applications that exist and run on the blockchain or peer-to-peer networks of computers instead of on single computers.

Before you build a decentralized app business, it helps to know your competition and trends ushering in the new wave of decentralized Apps. Remember that dApps aren’t an entirely new concept. The new shared trust mechanisms that are cryptographically secured make the modern decentralized apps stand out. The decentralized apps will be more involved in day-to-day living, reducing costs and eliminating third parties from many of our personal and business transactions. In addition, app developers can expect to create dApps with a heavy focus on the metaverse.
