Decentralized Cloud-based Smartphone Launches App Store Without Fees cover

APhone, a decentralized cloud-based smartphone, is set to challenge the dominance of Apple and Google with the launch of its AppNest store, which will not charge developers any fees. The store will support both decentralized applications (dApps) and traditional web2 apps, offering an alternative to the steep fees charged by the tech giants. APhone’s chief business officer, William Paul Peckham, stated that the goal is to democratize technology access and provide a full Web3 experience to users worldwide. The AppNest store will support popular web3 apps like MetaMask, Phantom, and Binance, as well as web2 apps such as WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, and ChatGPT. The store is exclusively available through the APhone app. APhone is powered by Aethir, a decentralized physical infrastructure network (DePIN) provider, which allows the smartphone to run both advanced Web3 applications and conventional apps on any web browser-compatible device.
