Top Dapps Building on APTOS
Decentralized applications, which are fundamentally distinct from typical apps, are virtual apps or programmes that employ blockchain technology. Unlike traditional programmes, which are operated on centralised servers owned by the company, dApps are run on a Blockchain-based decentralised peer-to-peer (P2P) network. On the newly created Aptos blockchain, there are a number of prospective dApps.
