    The problem: a non-transparent and inefficient app economy

    By 2020, 4 billion people will have a smartphone. The potential of the app economy is larger
    than ever, yet it still presents three main challenges:

    1- The inefficiency of mobile advertising. There are several intermediaries between the
    developer and the user, reducing transparency and the potential return for developers.

    2- The inaccessibility of In-App Purchases. Today, only 5% of smartphone users are making
    in-app purchases and payment intermediaries increase overall costs.

    3- The App Approval process is not transparent. It is still difficult to confirm the identity of the
    developers and there is no universal approach used by App Stores.
    The solution: a blockchain protocol for the app economy
    As a cryptocurrency, the AppCoin token will benefit all stakeholders of the app economy:


    A project supported by Aptoide App Store

    App Stores´ Protocol

    A diagram explaining the AppCoins protocol

    Circular

    The protocol re-designs the financial transactions (such as advertising and in-app billing inside the store) creating efficiencies by disintermediation and routing back the value to the economy in a virtuous loop.

    Transparent

    Being an open protocol implemented as open source software, it gives the trust back to the industry and provides guarantees of data transparency to users.

    Shared

    As it is adopted by different app stores, the development effort of the protocol is shared and the app developers are only required to perform an API integration once.
