- Polygon Labs collaborates with Meroku: Together they enhance the DApp Store Kit, offering developers unprecedented control over distribution, curation, branding, and monetization.
- Notable Additions: The revolutionary “.appStore” and “.dev” domains empower developers, signaling a shift away from the restricting norms of conventional platforms.
Unveiling the Next Phase of DApps
In an era marked by stifling conventions, the DApp Store Kit’s revamp marks a pivotal moment for digital innovation. The joint venture between Polygon Labs and Meroku, leveraging the latter’s newly minted Protocol V2, is setting the stage for a seismic shift in how DApps are designed, curated, and shared.

Empowering the Creators
DApp Store Kit, a catalyst for Web3’s broader acceptance, allows developers an escape from the shackling ‘walled-garden’ structures that traditional platforms have upheld. This change becomes crucial, especially when mainstream platforms levy high fees and disregard crypto-integrated applications.
The emergence of the .appStore and .dev domains through Meroku is a game-changer. For the first time, developers can shake off exorbitant platform fees, owning their registrations via “.dev”. Simultaneously, “.appStore” ushers in a new horizon, letting innovators construct their personalized app stores, sidestepping once-restrictive central databases.
For an insight into the evolving landscape, the dApp Store Leaderboard (Beta) offers a glance at rankings based on .apps count. It not only offers a competitive spirit but serves as an educational tool, allowing peers to learn and adapt.
Elevating User Experience
The DApp Store Kit’s core is its dApp Registry, which is now replete with user-driven features. With numerous dApps already within this public, permissionless register, the “.dev” extension’s integration is simplifying app listing processes, propelling the industry’s standards in a decentralized environment.
Moreover, the DApp Store Kit’s website, now revamped, serves as a window to the masterminds behind the initiative. It showcases real-world applications and case studies, illuminating the vast possibilities the SDK presents.
In the pipeline is the DApp Verification Tag. Aiming to foster unwavering trust, it promises dApps highlighted with verification scores sourced from select Web2 and Web3 parameters. This move is set to bolster both transparency and credibility within the digital sphere.
As the landscape shifts and technology advances, staying abreast of the latest developments becomes crucial. For those inclined, the Polygon Labs Blog and related social channels remain the hub of all new breakthroughs, echoing the collaborative ethos: building an equitable future via the large-scale embrace of Web3.
