As seen earlier, Blockchain technology has been gradually making headlines in diverse industrial sectors and has the potential to change the essence of many more, as we saw in our blog Applications of Blockchain.

Another major area where Blockchain can penetrate into and bring about a massive breakthrough could be the world of mobile apps. Mobile apps using Blockchain, can leverage to their advantage, the many benefits of Blockchain, like its decentralized system, highly secure immutable structure, data breach prevention etc.

There are millions of mobile apps in the market that are constantly vying to secure the numero uno position but are failing to be upto the mark because of lack of newer,efficient technologies. Mobile apps using Blockchain can overcome the challenges thrown by the existing technologies, and can help build a more robust, secure and swift mobile app.

Furthermore, cross platform mobile apps, can eliminate the need for a native, platform specific app and build a multi platform independent app. To build the best cross platform mobile app, it is essential to identify key technologies like the programming language, the framework etc. Although there are numerous alternatives like Flutter, Xamarin etc, who better than React Native, can help you serve this purpose with its unique cross platform programming functionality and diverse features?

So, let us delve deep into this and understand how the integration of Blockchain and React Native, can transform the way mobile apps can be developed.

Blockchain has several distinguished features which can be taken advantage of, for the creation of a cross platform app. Let us see how Blockchain’s concept can help build a secure mobile cross platform app.

1. Decentralized network:

-As we know Blockchain doesn’t have a centralized hub which stores and controls the data. Rather, it is a decentralized, peer-to-peer system where users interact amongst themselves, arrive at a consensus and transactions are approved.

-Mobile apps are currently based on a client-server system, where a mobile user (client) sends a request to server, and the server obliges by fulfilling the request.

-Data stored on a central repository is never safe, and is vulnerable to potential hacking. Decentralization of data ensures that data is secure on the Blockchain network. This can be a major advantage for mobile apps using Blockchain.

-Also, possibilities of server-crash due to severe network stress, caused by an ever increasing number of users, is completely removed as data is scattered over the network.

2. Immutable structure :

-Data and blocks must be added to the blockchain network in sequence, which means no information can be modified or erased.

-Only an authorized user can modify or delete the data in the chain. Any manipulation on the network is impossible as any tampering leads to change in the hash/address that can be easily tracked. Subsequently any probability of hacking is equivalent to zero.

-Therefore, data transparency is maintained and protected.

3. Cryptography and hashing :

-Encryption algorithms create a digital signature using the public and private keys for each block. Transactions are approved only when all peers validate the transaction.

-Cryptography helps add another layer of security to the already existing, tamper-proof structure.

React Native is one of the best mobile cross platform apps development framework available in the market. Its one of a kind features promise a seamless experience to the user. Let us see why React Native is the best to build a user-centric mobile cross platform app.

-React Native is based on React JS, written in JavaScript. Undoubtedly, JS is the most popular programming language, used by a majority number of developers.

-React Native UI components look and feel very similar to native OS components, which makes the user experience very smooth and surreal.

-React Native allows code resusability which means that a single piece of code over multiple OS platforms. This drastically reduces the programming efforts and cost, thereby reducing development costs of the project.

-React Native maintains a single code database, that eases the complex process of debugging, troubleshooting and fixing errors etc.

-The development time for creating a mobile cross platform app is very less, as React Native uses readily available components of the React JS library.
