Meroku’s dApp Store Kit is empowering Web3 projects to create their own application stores. The open-source, community-powered tech stack gives developers the freedom to set their own rules for distribution, curation and governance, complete control over branding and monetization.

The dApp Registry, the base layer of the dApp Store Kit, is a decentralized app database that lets users find new dApps and allows developers to seamlessly add theirs. It frees projects from the hard work of building and maintaining their own databases, so that they can focus on the building blocks and user experience of their dApp stores.

Here is how you can add your own dApp to Meroku’s public, verifiable, and trusted registry hosted on the Polygon network:

DApp Store Kit, originally incubated by Polygon Labs and spun out to the community, is an important enabler of innovation and a major step toward the broader adoption of Web3. It offers an alternative to the walled-garden approach that has allowed mobile OS incumbents to charge exorbitant fees and exclude a whole class of applications by not supporting crypto payments.
