Imagine having a company or organization that does not run under the control of a single entity or board. Decentralized Applications (Dapps) are based on this idea and they form one of the novel inventions of the blockchain technology.
Decentralized applications are made up of self-executing smart contracts. The goal behind the development of decentralized applications is to replace everything that requires control by a centralized entity such as a government.
An example of a decentralized application is Bitcoin. It runs without the control of a central authority, rewards its contributors, it is fully open-source and it relies on the blockchain technology to facilitate its use as an online currency.
Innovators are now looking for ways to transform various online services by applying the same concepts in order to transform them into a Dapp format. Dapps are a new field, but their number is growing, with most of them currently existing in the form of complete apps, concepts, working prototypes and even functional platforms. This clearly shows that the concept of Dapps is gaining new roots every day.
The demand for Dapps and blockchain software is set to grow exponentially in the future. This book is a technical introduction on how to develop decentralized applications. It will help you take the first steps int he world of Dapps so that you can grow from there and take advantage of the innovative new field.
The book is aimed at Developers with some programming knowledge, and it contains source code and explanations for the same.
