RE: What Makes a 'dApp' a 'dApp'?

in #steem2 years ago

So, there might be a bit of a misunderstanding here. is not a dApp, but not for your reasons -- is an interface that access an underlying dApp (the STEEM ecosystem with posts, votes, and rewards). It's also not the only interface to access it.

But currently, is not decentralized. When you access, you outsource verification of the content displayed to Steemit Inc.
Indeed, if you were to download (and vet) condenser and run it off of your own steemd node, which is validating data, then you are accessing the STEEM dApp without outsourcing verification.
