The Blockstack ecosystem had launched the app mining program 12 months ago. App mining encourages app developers to work on blockstack ecosystem. It is a kind of reward mechanism where in the developers who contribute to the growth of blockstack ecosystem get rewarded in Stacks (STX) tokens. The apps are ranked every month based on their performance in select parameters decided by Blockstack PBC and these metrics are measured by independent reviewers who are brought on board by Blocstack PBC. Many interesting apps have come out during this period. Some of the interesting apps are
Graphite offers document editing and collaboration tools, file storage and sharing tools, form builders and analysis, contact management, and team management.

With the end of 2019, app mining program completes a good 12 months of interesting experiment. The ranking has evolved based on the feedback provided by the blockstack ecosystem. As a metric for assessing the relevance of Blockstack in the larger scheme of things, the key factor in the year 2020 will be how many of the dapps built on Blockstack can actually go on to become mainstream and attract a mass adoption.
