A decentralized application (DApp) is a digital application built on a decentralized blockchain network. DApps run in a public, open-source, and censorship-resistant environment where there is no interference by any single authority.
As the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry expands, more and more decentralized applications are being introduced. Developers often seek the most appropriate means to develop DApps on their preferred blockchain network.
In this article, we will be discussing how to use Connex2 to build a decentralized application on the VeChain blockchain.
Steps To Build a Decentralized Application (dApp) on VeChain Via Connex2
To connect decentralized applications with the VeChain blockchain, Connex comes in very handy. Connex is the mono-repository containing libraries needed by developers to build on VeChain.
Connex is also said to be the standard interface to connect dApps with the VeChain blockchain and users. Aiming to help developers build decentralized applications.
Decentralized applications built on Connex2 are more independent from each other. Whereas the dApps that are built on Connext1 are independent of Sync1.
The first step to building a dApp on VeChain is making the required installations and then getting testnet VET and VTHO tokens. A testnet wallet is therefore needed to get these testnet tokens.
After successful installations and testnet tokens acquisition, the second step is to install Connex2 by writing the lines of codes as shown below. Thereafter, you can begin the programming process.
What is VeChain?
VeChain is a leading enterprise-grade Layer 1 and proof-of-authority smart contract platform characterized by an ultra-low carbon and highly scalable blockchain architecture.
VeChainThor is the public blockchain of VeChain that derives its value from ecosystem activities. DApp developers can connect to the VeChain (VET) node and block explorer through the blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS) provider, NOWNodes.
