DAPP: A Framework for the Web3 Stack

Quick Take

  • This is a section adapted from The Block Research’s 2023 Digital Asset Outlook report.
  • “Web3” has come a long way since last year, when it was still a fuzzy concept with varying definitions focusing to varying degrees on its technological or social aspects. 
  • Since then, there has been some convergence in definitions, with most agreeing that web3 refers collectively to the dapps it is composed of. But, it may still be hard to see how web3 is more than the sum of its parts.
  • Here, we discuss a holistic framework of web3 infrastructure that shows how dapps are built and accessed.
