What are decentralized apps?

What if Bitcoin’s core values could apply to software too? Stacks extends Bitcoin to enable apps that are open, permissionless, and decentralized. Decentralized apps are computer programs that run on the Stacks blockchain instead of a centralized server, enabling new kinds of apps that couldn’t exist before.

Centralized apps

  • Closed, you need permission to use or build upon apps

  • Controlled by centralized entity — you trust the developer that the app’s source code and state is fair and accurate

  • Users’ account and data are locked into the app

  • Will disappear if the creator loses interest

  • Extractive business models of selling access, data or advertising

Decentralized apps

  • Open, apps can be used, improved, and built upon by anyone without requiring permission

  • Hosted by the network, the app’s source code and state is open for all to see on the blockchain

  • Users own their account and data and can move it from app to app

  • Once deployed on Stacks and settled on Bitcoin, code can’t be taken down. This is essential for critical internet infrastructure.

  • Can align incentives between developers, users, and investors, enabling anyone to be a shareholder of the apps they believe in
