As we approach the launch of MarketSquare, we want to give our community an inside look at some of the partnerships we have formed. These strategic partnerships will not only help make MarketSquare the new homepage for the decentralized web but will also create inroads between ARK and other projects looking to build and collaborate together. Today we would like to introduce you to Dapplr!
What is Dapplr?
Dapplr is the first design-based app that lets you be a part of the Hive Ecosystem. “Dapplr” is derived from the word dapple, meaning spots/patches of light or color. The design language that the dapplr team has chosen for their application is subtly explained by the name - prioritizing just a few colors and a fun aesthetic to the overall user-experience. The Dapplr team believes that details matter and that can be seen in the colorful liquid-like effects underpinning the enitre application.
When it comes to blockchain applications, one of the main obstacles that developers face is creating a sleek user interface that leverages blockchain technology in a simple way. For Dapplr, their main goal was not just to make something that had a nice user interface, but to also leverage blockchain features such as censorship resistance and a native token.
One of the best places to learn about Dapplr is to check out their blog.
Not only is Dapplr focused on providing users with control over their content, they are also focused on letting them control the style of the app. The app has a number of different themes, modes and customization options for users.
In terms of blockchain-based features, Dapplr offers most of the features of the HIVE blockchain including:
- Creating Posts/Comments
- Power Up/Down
- Token conversions
- and much more
Dapplr also enables users to post their content across multiple communities, such as 3Speak. Content posted using Dapplr is rewarded with Dapplr Tokens based on the upvote value. The Dapplr token is not currently launched, it is scheduled to be airdropped at a later date. Currently, the Dapplr team is working on easing the onboarding flow for new users and on launching Encrypted Chats.
