If we need to access to the Dapp from a website (which requires a central DNS, a central hosting, a central team developing the front etc), does not that mean the app is not decentralized?

Can we create our custom front to interact with the smart contracts of the Dapp and everything will work (I mean, even when the front is centralized is not important for the app and everybody can create another front if he prefers)?

Related with (but not answered there):
Where are DApps hosted?
Which ethereum dapps are 100% decentralized and not semi-decentralized (centralized)?

  • the informations has to be decentralized, so that nobody can't change them (and nobody can manipulate them)... the way you display them, is up to you (since those should be stored in a decentralized smart contract, anybody can fetch them and then display in the way they prefer ) Sep 28 at 17:31

    I would just answer the same I already answered in the linked answer: the point is to keep the core (smart contracts) decentralized, and anyone is free to create whatever type of user interface on top of it. So, yes, you can create your custom front. Sep 28 at 18:34
  • @LauriPeltonen does that apply for NFT games like Axie too?

  • As far as I've understood, stuff like Axie is mostly centralized. Just some NFT things are in smart contracts, but their utilization is centralized. So, no, you can't just create a new front for Axie. Sep 29 at 4:59
