A topic of discussion on the lips of many in the wider blockchain industry, is which type of DApp will drive the adoption of blockchain technology.


Innovation is high in many industries as they seek to break the technology out into the mainstream.


Crypto was the first market to give the wider public an introduction into blockchain and smart contracts. However, following the dip in the crypto markets in 2018, this may have given a negative first impression to many.


The power of blockchain technology reaches far wider than crypto. But the wider market is perhaps intimidated when they hear the technical jargon associated with the tech.


So how can the blockchain industry reintroduce the power of the technology to a wider audience?


According to Ethereum Co-Founder Joseph Lubin, the key lies in the development of DGaming DApps.

“Consumers don’t really need to understand the technology and depth. It’s up to software developers who are putting together some really accessible applications right now; Crypto Baseball, Fun Fair, Zombie Battleground and Axie infinity,” said Lubin. “These projects are not only driving adoption, but driving the technology itself. We’re going to see some real excitement in the gaming space.”
