We are one month in the new year (it went by way too fast), have we settled in our resolutions for the year or are we back into our usual rhythms? Are we BUIDL-ing better? Let’s see what the compiled researches done by friends of ours have to say about Blockchain and DApps.
I know I am late to share this one with you, but don't worry, exciting upcoming news to share with you all!
Outlier Ventures has published a report on the State of Blockchain: Green shoots of adoption emerge from 2018 crypto crash, which highlights increasing user adoption whilst data shows a decline in ETH price isn’t due to ICO sellers.
Which language should we support next?
At State of the DApps, we wish to be more inclusive with languages options for our global users. After English and Chinese, the following languages are spoken by most of our visitors interested in DApps: Korean, Russian, Spanish, German and French. We wanted to have our community help us decide, so we ran a dpoll and it was a tight competition between Korean and German. The one with the most votes was German, and the new version is available now! Thanks to the Steem community!
Let’s take a look at a few cool DApps:
Appics is a next generation, reward-based social media application that introduces a new ecosystem which merges lifestyle, passion, and user-generated income inside a single mobile application. Unlike on any other popular social media site, where 100% of the platform’s value and revenue goes to the corporate shareholders, APPICS enables all users to earn a fair share of the overall revenue, as well as creative influence within the network, through a cryptocurrency reward-token.
