What is a dApp?

There is generally a lack of clarity on what a “dApp” is, especially with the wide array of technologies that have come about in recent years, starting with the Bitcoin blockchain.

Some of the belief is that a dApp is exclusively a smart contract running on a blockchain, such as Ethereum. In particular, with the popularity around ICO’s in 2016–2018, this has been a widely-accepted definition. There has been an assumption that a dApp runs on a blockchain or requires the blockchain to operate, whether it be for smart contracts, payments, or other purposes.
