 What are dApps and what can I do with them?

Decentralized applications or dApps are web platforms that allow you to make transactions on a blockchain as they serve as a gateway to the Web3.

dApps enable transactions through smart contracts on the blockchain, such as swaps, transfers, buying or selling NFTs, buying assets for online gaming, depositing in liquidity pools, staking and many more.

Some of the most popular dApps among Web3 enthusiasts are: Uniswap, OpenSea, RocketPool, Lido and Aave; also you can choose from up to 20 dApps to get connected directly from your app. Once you connect your Bitso Web3 Wallet to a dApp you will be ready to make transactions!

  3. Interact with the dApp and choose the transaction you want to make (buy, sell, swap, stake, etc)
  4. In case you're transacting for the first time with a specific dApp, you will be asked to approve this kind of transaction with the dApp
  5. Confirm your transaction details, please be aware of Gas fees and the address details
  6. You will get a confirmation screen, usually it will take some minutes for the transaction to be reflected due to the blockchain and network congestion at the time you’re performing the transaction.
