Nominate a DERP

In 2017 and 2018, blockchain-based startups raised over $10 billion, much of which was earmarked for development of cutting edge distributed applications, or “DAPPS.”

So where are they?

Apparently none of the good ones are done yet, which leaves plenty of lousy ones out there to choose from. So instead of focusing on the best of the best (which, as already mentioned, aren’t done yet), we thought it would be fun to identify and review the worst of the worst, which we have lovingly decided to call “DERPS.”

So, with that in mind, we welcome any and all nominations for the most mundane, embarrassing, and downright dumbest DERPS you can find for a special year end roundup episode to be announced! Please use the contact form below!
