How has this combination altered the approach of developing a platform for apps?
Whatever platform is chosen, there is always a need of authority at the central level to look into the interactions with the user, like for instance it is the case with eBay or messaging portals like Twitter there is a body that takes care of the interactions with the users.
Next, it becomes essential to safeguard and manage the data owned by these authorities. With decentralized platforms like Blockchain, there is no need to secure or maintain the data. One is only accountable for its data without depending upon the data provided by any other party. It helps in improving the network size and interactions with the user.
How developing an app on Blockchain different for the developers?
No wonder that traditional and Blockchain app development technologies have much in common, like the way of fetching data from API, front-end development. But the significant difference that the developers feel when working with the latter technology is that there are a variety of options to collect data from trustworthy sources.
As the developers need to be aware of the traditional database and the Blockchain, they should know to use the nodes to solve inconsistencies that keep arriving and be competent enough to handle and take security measures as and when needed.
What type of applications are developed using the above combination?
When combined, both the technologies work to develop decentralized applications that need the developer is used to create at least the server-client apps. In the Blockchain, a developer has to deal with nodes and other complexities, which requires one to have experience with handling the nodes. This helps in developing applications that are pellucid with no particular authority to make changes to the data and information that is available to everyone. The apps provide efficient communication and interactions, and the data which is once available in the system remains their forever.
