The App world is evolving. One moment, new technology is out, the next moment, the former becomes obsolete. This is similar to the tech world. As the whole ecosystem is evolving, the universe is adjusting to conventional apps.

Defining decentralized applications without its characteristics are meaningless. Every DApps are required to exhibit the following four features:

Open source: DApps should make their core source code available for scrutiny. It should be governed by autonomy and unanimous consensus and all changes must be decided by a majority of its users.

Decentralized: all records of the decentralized applications should be stored on a blockchain or any cryptographic technology to save the app from perils of centralized authority.

Incentivization: since the app is based on the decentralized blockchain, the validators of the records on the network must be incentivized by rewarding them accordingly with cryptographic tokens.

Protocol: the application community needs to have a consensus mechanism that shows proof of value in the cryptographic system.

A Linux infrastructure for scalable applications. Cartesi DApps are hybrid which means they are composed of both blockchain and off-chain components. These scalable applications exhibit the following characteristics:

Scalable: Intensive computations performed off-chain while retaining the security guarantees of the blockchain.

Expressive: DApp logic built with a real OS and the option of thousands of open-source software components available for Linux.

Adoptable: Barriers of adoption removed. Developers use familiar software stacks and popular standards to code DApps.

Fully-Decentralized: Consensus securely reached on-chain. No reputation protocol, no TEE, or central servers on the cloud.

Portable: Cartesi will make DApps portable across most important public blockchains that support smart contracts.

Private: DApp state can be kept private among application participants.

Developing and Deploying Scalable Decentralized Applications

They are a new programming concept or technology with a wide range of coding options and platforms that developers can leverage while thinking of developing decentralized applications.

As a developer, you need to get hold of the proper tools, components, and frameworks to develop a decentralized application, and cartesi offers the best to developers.

Cartesi, as a layer-2 platform for developing scalable decentralized applications provides DApp developers with reproducible cartesi machines, where large scale verifiable computation can be run.

Cartesi nodes allows DApp developer to run native codes. Cartesi enables DApp developers to use all the programming languages, tools, libraries, software, and services they are already familiar with. By moving most of the complex logic of their DApps to portable off-chain components, developers are freed from the limitations and idiosyncrasies imposed by blockchains. In this way, Cartesi empowers developers to select the best run-time environment in which to host each part of their DApps.

With cartesi, it allows users to deploy the current project as a DApp in the main blockchain.

The deployment process includes three steps:

Deploy contract: contracts are deployed in the main blockchain.

Package DApp: frontend resources are packaged and uploaded.

Register: To render the DApp, the Ethereum browser needs to access this package. This will register the URL where the resources are stored.

Cartesi are committed to helping DApp developers build a more portable products for their clients. Cartesi’s core enables developers to take advantage of the pre-existing knowledge and tools to boost productivity.
