Web3 infrastructure startup AAG launches MetaOne dApp Store to offer curated dashboard of approved safe dApps
The growing popularity of blockchain has led developers and builders to flock to networks like Ethereum and BNB Chain to build decentralized applications, also known as dApps. Unlike the regular apps in Apple App Store, dApps are built on a decentralized network and can operate autonomously.
DApps have also evolved since they were first introduced in May 2017. Back then, building a new dApp was complex, and time-consuming with so many moving parts. Today, the number of dApps has grown exponentially, thanks to new blockchain ecosystems and tools.
However, dApps are not without their risks and challenges. With thousands of dApps out there, users are now susceptible to malicious and phishing dApps. Finding safe dApps is like looking for a needle in a haystack. That’s why Web3 infrastructure startup AAG is on a mission to simplify the blockchain experience by offering a curated list of approved safe dApps.
Today, AAG announced the launch of its MetaOne dApp Store, a curated list of projects across the ecosystem that aims to guarantee safety from scams and offer an easy way for newcomers to the industry to discover the best of what Web3 has to offer.
At launch, the MetaOne dApp Store will include a list of 1100 dApps in most categories (with 50+ added daily), filtering them out for quality and safety. The list aims to exclude any dApp at high risk of rug pulls, scams, or potential Ponzi schemes. Users are also guaranteed to land on the right website to avoid phishing scams.
A useful feature in the MetaOne dApp Store will be informative descriptions and categorizations (e.g. type of dApp, blockchain, supported platform(s), etc.) to learn about a particular dApp. This saves time combing through docs and blog posts to understand what dApp does. The content will be available in written and video form while also offering the latest news and events about the individual dApps.
In addition, the list includes a large variety of dApps that go beyond gaming and decentralized exchanges. This allows users to take advantage of all of Web3, including things they might not have known about.
The MetaOne dApp Store will also be integrated into the MetaOne wallet, allowing users to seamlessly connect their wallet directly to dApps. This is one more much-needed UX improvement for using Web3 apps.
“We’re very excited to be launching the MetaOne dApp Store, giving our wallet users a gateway into Web3 that makes their wallet more than a simple app for managing crypto assets,” said Jack Vinijtrongjit, CEO & Co-Founder at AAG. “The curated list will help users, both those new to the blockchain and OGs, navigate the rough seas of Web3, where a scam is always, unfortunately, just around the corner.”
AAG, formerly AAG Ventures, is a web3 infrastructure company focusing on providing software that helps simplify interactions with blockchain applications and the Metaverse for mainstream users and traditional companies. AAG provides a secure and easy-to-use crypto wallet, as well as infrastructure software, such as a cross-chain search engine and GameFi SDK for enterprise companies.
With the belief that education is the key to unlocking the potential of web3, AAG is also exploring the concept of Learn-and-Earn with the mission of enabling economic opportunities worldwide via the Metaverse economy. AAG aims to bring 1 billion people into the Metaverse economy by 2030.
