What DApps should be built to drive user adoption?
This is the total amount allocated to F3: DApp creation
Dapp development is mission critical because user adoption will have a key role in determining the future utility and value of Cardano. That's why we are looking to the Project Catalyst community to refine and answer our challenge.
Over time, development opportunities on Cardano will evolve to include everything from metadata to KEVM/IELE, Plutus, Marlowe and more. Ultimately, the goal here is best summarized by the question:
Did the funded Dapps manage to drive user-adoption?
To find out, we might track the following metrics:
How many daily active users?
How much daily local token volume increased?
How many transactions were made?
How much funds were transacted?
Where are gaps in the market where Dapps built in Cardano have a unique advantage?
What kind of Dapps and businesses can already be developed in the next six months?
Inspirational potential directions
The community open roadmap contains a "Use cases" section and "Driving adoption" section that can serve as an inspiration for proposers.
For access to all currently available developer tools and guides, visit our developer site. Further documentation can be found here.
Meanwhile, here are some quick links you can start with:
Metadata tells the story of transactions made on the blockchain. Cardano is working to provide cutting edge tools for embedding data into transactions and while adding robust search functionality in the block explorer. Check out our blog on metadata or look at our documentation for more information.
The Marlowe playground
Marlowe is our bespoke domain specific language (DSL) built for creating robust financial smart contracts on Cardano. For a closer look at Marlowe check out our recent blog or check out our overview on the Cardano Developers page.
