Difference with regular app
The obvious point of difference is the lack of ownership or not being able to shut down, even temporarily for maintenance. These apps are also decentralized and built using open source codes and also have a built-in cryptocurrency incentive.

Developers of dApps must ensure that the open platform that they build their applications on, will also offer a service that potential users will find worthwhile and attractive. This is done by the developers by either going down the proof-of-work route or the proof-of-stake one.
The first method is, for example, the one that is used by bitcoin. It encourages people from all around the globe to mine blocks of its coin from the limited supply that is waiting to be found.
The second method, the proof of stake one, is used by people once they have some cryptocurrency to stake. What this means is that you do not use your cryptocurrency for a period of time to allow it to grow in value on its own while also receiving a fixed amount in that same digital currency. The benefits to staking are that you do not need to mine and also that when you reinvest your rewards you are taking advantage of the power of compound interest.
