App Rewards is both exciting and maybe a little contentious. I know there is a thread that provides some initial thoughts on the alpha run from members of the community, but I thought it’d be valuable to break this particular proposal off to its own separate thread since it has a clear, singular focus.
Here’s the proposal:
Any app that qualifies for App Rewards must fit into Blockstack’s own defined DApp principles:
The barrier for entry is much lower if an app only has Blockstack authentication, but it also pits Blockstack apps that, arguably, are working much harder to incorporate all of those design principles into their apps against those that could be entirely centralized aside from auth.
Just a thought that I felt was concrete enough to float out there. Would love to get some feedback on this.
