10 Most Used Social Lifestyle dApps on BNB Chain
From making friends to learning courses with the help of AI, social dApps play an important role in making the transition from Web2 to Web3 seamless.
More than a decade and a half since Bitcoin was created, new Web3 users still find it hard to participate in DeFi, buy cryptocurrencies, or use a dApp. Getting a wallet, buying crypto, and the technology itself can be barriers to entry for the general population. However, lifestyle dApps can limit those barriers to entry in Web3.
What are Social Lifestyle dApps?
Social lifestyle dApps are decentralized applications that users can utilize in their everyday social lives. Social lifestyle dApps span across applications to make friends, get an education, exercise, watch and earn, contribute to earn, and more. With most social and lifestyle dApps, users have the added incentive of earning by using the dApp.
