With all that is going on in the world, the need for permissionless privacy preserving cryptocurrency has never been more obvious. Beam continues to push the envelope on what is needed for true censorship resistance, and the best in class privacy. A big improvement to censorship resistance is coming with the D2App Store.
Beam D2App Store
With the BeamX Confidential DeFi Ecosystem taking shape, an important and often overlooked element to censorship resistance is that of the distribution of Dapps. For most Decentralised Applications the contract side is stored in a decentralised matter, but they utilise centralised and thus censorable front ends. To alleviate this Beam is set to launch the D2App Store.
IPFS integration to bolster reliability, privacy and censorship resistance properties of Beam Dapps
Unique Identifiers enable Dapp developers to register as publishers, tying Dapps to teams and devs
Install Dapps to your Beam wallet, avoiding reliance on cloud hosted front ends
Dapps as a .dapp archive, containing the application code, publisher information with their Unique Identifiers, and optional auditor signatures
Version Management to allow developers to push over-the-air updates for Beam Dapps, and inform users with notifications on any potential issues
The D2App Store will add extra censorship resistance to Dapps running in the Beam Confidential DeFi Ecosystem. Applications will still be accessible from website interfaces, and can be interacted with using the Beam Web Wallet.
