Ryan Shea, co-founder of blockstack broke the news earlier today on twitter that app.co, the first universal app store for decentralized applications is now live.
We’re excited to announce the first universal app store for decentralized apps - https://t.co/DbEmp3A1VA— Ryan Shea (@ryaneshea) May 16, 2018
Find apps on Ethereum, Blockstack, IPFS, Steem, EOS and more
If you’re a dapp developer, submit your decentralized app today
Decentralized applications are programs that exist on a P2P or blockchain network instead of a single computer, thus they are not controlled by a single authority. Currently App.co lists apps for Ethereum, Blockstack, IPFS, Steem, EOS and others. Shea notes that the plan is to roll out more applications over time and encourages developers to submit their decentralized applications for them to be listed.
According to the website, “Decentralized apps offer a solution based on blockchain technology. Dapps link developers and users directly, without middlemen hosting software or managing user data. These customer-developer networks are more transparent, equitable, and resilient than traditional apps—with all parties incentivized to treat each other well as they rapidly innovate.”
Some companies even took the opportunity to announce that they plan on listing their dapp’s to the site.
