Building decentralized applications is no longer just for expert programmers and coders. Several platforms are now making the process more accessible, and DigiByte is one.
Digibyte is more than just a cryptocurrency and blockchain network. It has been around since 2013. Its native token, DGB, was envisioned to become the backbone of decentralized applications. Therefore, in this article, you will discover more about this process.
What is Digibyte?
Fast forward to 2022, and Digibyte remains a solid dApp development platform for many.
Furthermore, Digibyte is a UTXO proof-of-work blockchain which means it operates using the same technology as Bitcoin. Additionally, it utilizes five different mining algorithms, including SHA256, Scrypt, Odocrypt, Skein, and Qubit.

A secure secondary layer exists on the blockchain called DigiAssets. This allows the decentralized issuance of assets, tokens, smart contracts, and applications.
Building dApps on Digibyte
dApps and any new features need to go through a testing mode. DigiByte supports node and block explorer NOWNodes, providing crypto APIs for instant access to over 40 blockchain networks.
DigiByte is an open contributor system in which anyone can contribute towards its development, peer review, testing, patches, and dApp building. Various coding styles are tested on DigiByte, but C++ or Python are commonly used.
On the other hand, these are technical features that developers have to build dApps:
- Use braces on new lines for classes, functions, and methods.
- Braces on the same line.
- Four space indentations for block.
- No indentation for public/private or for the namespace.
- No extra spaces inside parentheses.
- Finally, no space after function names.

DGB Price Outlook
DigitByte’s native token has gained 3.8% on the day, according to CoinGecko. As a result, DGB was trading at $0.029 at the time of writing. The token has made 26% in gains over the past fortnight.
Additionally, DGB is up a whopping 59% over the past month. However, it has fallen 83.4% since its May 2021 all-time high of $0.178.
