[Grant application] Dapp Analytics and Distribution Dapp.com

Hi everyone,

We would like to submit a grant application for getting ICON and ICON Dapps on Dapp.com, the largest dapp analytics and distribution platform. Dapp.com tracks dapp performance of over 3,200 dapps from over 10 blockchains including Ethereum, EOS, Tron, Klaytn, NEO, Steem, IOST, TomoChain, Terra, Blockstack and more.

  1. Title

Dapp Analytics and Distribution Platform: To provide trusted 3rd party data analytics and worldwide distribution of ICON Dapps.

  1. Project Description

According to our research at Dapp.com, there are over 10 dapps launched on ICON already with another 10+ being developed by the community and ICON partners. Having a dedicated page and column on Dapp.com to showcase all the projects and their comparison with other projects is crucial to a world-leading blockchain platform. The project will allow ICON to 1. have its own columns listing all the ICON dapps with their ranking by users and transaction activities; 2. show its dapp ecosystem performance in dapp market overview to compare with other leading blockchains, and 3. get each ICON dapp its own page and visit by world dapp users every day.

More attention from the developer and dapp user communities will also lead to further growth of the ICON network. We are no longer at the stage where projects use a whitepaper to tell people how good they are - all our visions of usability and scalability are now put to the test by more and more dapp users. Dapp.com provides such a platform for ICON.

  1. Value For ICON

The service is aiming to move ICON’s dapps to a new level by providing Information aggregation, transparency & credits, and users.

It is almost impossible to know about ICON dapps unless you’ve been an active member (token holder, developer, researcher etc.) in the ICON community. Getting listed on Dapp.com will bring ICON dapps to a stage where everyone who cares about the use of blockchain and hunting dapps. So the first step is to let ICON be seen as a leading smart contract platform and ICON dapps to be discovered by a wide range of global users.

And this will add a lot of credits to the ICON dapps as well - Dapp.com is a trusted platform by leading VCs, research groups and media including FBG, Hashed, Coindesk, Cointelegraph, TNW, Hackernoon, and Yahoo, etc. This will help to get a great amount of exposure to the development status of ICON.

While Dapp.com is also building a lot of infrastructure around different blockchains to solve the onboarding issues of dapps for mass adoption, there will be a potential collaboration that to add ICON to the Dapp Store Wallet in the future.

Dapp.com is one of most popular website in crypto space with high awareness and traffic in Asia. The ICON Foundation is very welcome to join ICON community from outside of the ICON community. Integration with Dapp.com allows us to reach users outside the ICON community and this will raise awareness of ICON and help to grow the community. Also, this will bring good Dapp developers to the ICON ecosystem and lunch active Dapp campaigns and publish good reports related to ICON. We are looking forward to these.
