Applications built on Ethereum (dapps) can do things regular apps can’t:
- Create new kinds of money and digital assets
- Web apps that are unstoppable and uncensorable
- Build decentralized organizations, property, or virtual worlds that are governed collectively
Dapps on Ethereum are web applications backed by Ethereum smart contracts. Instead of using a centralized server or database, these applications rely on the blockchain as a backend for program logic and storage. This leads to potentially unstoppable applications: anyone can deploy a copy of the frontend, and freely connect it to the public Ethereum network.
