### Prize Bounty
$5,000 in ETH.
### Challenge Description
Since their wide-scale introduction with iOS in 2008, app stores have become an increasingly central part of the experience of developing applications on almost every platform. While they normally offer a great means for distributing the apps you build and growing their user base, our computing platforms have become increasingly centralised around them.
This prize is for the best permaweb-based app store for either Firefox, Android, or Chromium (the only major platforms where this is still possible) that does not require _any_ intermediary. Application developers should be able to publish to this permaweb app, with total confidence that their users will always be able to install their software without a third-party (Google, Mozilla, etc.) interfering.
### Submission Requirements
You should aim for a viable permaweb-based platform that allows app developers publish apps, and users to download them, without any centralised intermediaries.
### Submission Deadline
July 20th, unless otherwise specified
### Judging Criteria
The prize will be awarded (along with help with marketing and PR) to the individual/team that produces the most user-friendly and intermediary-free app store design.
