Welcome to AppIC DAO

Your terminal to decentralized finance (DeFi) on the Internet Computer (IC) ecosystem

Welcome to the official documentation for AppIC, a revolutionary platform built on the Internet Computer (IC) ecosystem. In this, we will explore the various aspects of AppIC, its features, functionalities, and its mission to redefine decentralized finance (DeFi) on the IC network.

The Internet Computer Ecosystem

The emergence of the DFINITY ecosystem has ushered in a new era of blockchain development, offering unparalleled features and capabilities that set it apart from traditional blockchain platforms. Here's why developers choose DFINITY:

  1. On-Chain Governance: DFINITY incorporates on-chain governance, allowing for more transparent and democratic decision-making processes within the ecosystem. This governance model encourages active participation from stakeholders and ensures that the platform evolves in a decentralized manner.

  2. Native Data Storage: Unlike other blockchain platforms that rely on external data storage solutions, DFINITY features native data storage capabilities. This allows applications to scale their data performance seamlessly by creating new canisters or replicating existing ones, leading to "infinite performance" as more canisters are added.

  3. Chain Fusion Technology: ICP enables direct interoperability with all major blockchains, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, other EVMs (and soon Solana), without relying on any trusted intermediary. Unique compared to other blockchains, ICP smart contracts can read from and write to different chains, enabling developers to write smart contracts spanning different chains. This is chain fusion.

  4. HTTPS outcalls: The power of HTTPS outcalls on the Internet Computer lies in their ability to connect canisters directly to the Web 2.0 world, opening up a plethora of use cases. Retrieve market data from crypto exchanges, send emails, integrate with other blockchains, and more.

  5. On-Chain Governance Model: DFINITY employs an on-chain governance model to meet the governance needs of business-grade applications on the platform. This model incentivizes user participation through voting rewards and encourages decentralized decision-making, ultimately reducing the centralization degree of the system.
