A decentralized application (Dapp) is an open source app whose backend code runs on a peer-to-peer network rather than on a centralized server. Its data is stored on a blockchain. It is incentivized by the use of cryptographic tokens, and operates autonomously (i.e. with no entity controlling it), on a protocol that shows proof of value.
