While Bitcoin has its ups and downs, decentralized apps or “dapps” remain a hot topic in software development circles. “Smart contracts” tend to be part of the same conversations, implying that you need to learn new programming languages, development practices, deployment strategies, security testing, and the list goes on. But writing dapps doesn’t have to be so complicated.
Blockstack is an open source project and an internet for decentralized apps. Blockstack combines a technology stack and set of libraries that enable simple development of dapps, where users are always in full control of their own information and key interactions are persisted to the blockchain.
