The most popular dApp platforms are Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, Cardano, Polkadot

The development of dApps, i.e. decentralised applications in blockchain technology, has gained momentum in recent years.

Some platforms are among the prominent ones in this field. Four of them are Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, Cardano and Polkadot.

Ethereum is the best known dApp platform, often known as the "global computer".

It was the first blockchain platform that allowed developers to create and run their own decentralised applications (dApps) and smart contracts. In Ethereum's system, Ether (ETH) is the native cryptocurrency, which is paid for transactions within the network and for performing computational tasks.

Binance Smart Chain (BSC) is the blockchain created by the Binance cryptocurrency exchange to support decentralised applications and smart contracts.

The BSC is compatible with Ethereum's application programming interfaces (APIs), meaning that Ethereum dApps can be ported to the BSC with relative ease. Additionally, the BSC blockchain offers faster and cheaper transactions than Ethereum, making it attractive to users and developers.

Cardano is an open source and decentralised blockchain platform that also supports dApps and smart contracts.

The unique feature of Cardano is that the platform is developed based on scientific research and peer-review processes. Cardano aims to provide a more secure and efficient infrastructure for dApps and smart contracts and to promote financial inclusion worldwide.

Polkadot is a multi-chain platform that enables interoperability between different blockchains and supports both dApps and smart contracts.

Polkadot allows developers to create their own blockchain and connect to the Polkadot network to take advantage of security and networking benefits.

Each platform has its own unique advantages and disadvantages, and each can excel in different areas. Developers should decide which platform to choose based on their own needs and goals.
