# Blending Web 2/3, is this Web .666? ( •̀ᴗ•́ )و ̑̑
applause is a platform I built using centralized web technologies in combination with decentralized identity blockchain. The result is a website that requires no login or signup of any kind, and instead, lets users participate by authenticating their actions against the key associated with their name on the [Handshake](https://handshake.org) blockchain.
I was browsing some of the Handshake related projects on Github and saw a recent [pull request](https://github.com/kyokan/bob-extension/pull/15) on Kyokan's [Bob Wallet Extension](https://github.com/kyokan/bob-extension). Highly interested, I downloaded and built the branch and started building this site.
## Use Cases
There are several use cases:
- Authenticated paste bin
- Easy blogging
- Transparent voting
- and more!
You can embed images by using the data-url with markdown image syntax.
## On blending Web 2 and 3
A lot of Web3 projects are geared around making money. I'm more interested in decentralization and sovereign data ownership, so I'm exploring how we can use these technologies for better purposes.
