Steer App Store

The Steer App Store provides developers with a platform to create, publish, and monetize DeFi apps.

The idea of Steer App Store is to -

  1. Connects the creator and the consumer of the apps.
  2. Commercialize the web3 app creation with minimum lift for the creator.
    • We believe if someone has solved a problem then their solution can work for others as well, there on app store anyone can clone apps and can remix, re-use and in return the creator get the rewards of new usecase.
  3. One stop place for consumer of the apps to find apps for their usecase.

Why do we need a App Store?

Current platforms and keeper networks only allow core team members to publish apps or strategies due to the restrictive nature of their infrastructures and manual approval processes.

Additionally, most keeper networks do not allow for dynamic data and instead rely on static parameters which never change. On the other hand, Steer supports fully dynamic inputs and provides the flexibility to write and publish apps on top of these inputs - no solidity knowledge is necessary.

For yield generating side, there is a natural alignment between users, who want their liquidity put to good use, and app creators, who may have good yield-generating apps, but lack the liquidity to fully take advantage of them. The Steer App Store provides an easy interface for app creators to create apps and demonstrate their performance over time. Through it, quants finally have a venue to build and monetize their apps.

How to access App Store?

The App Store is accessible via the Steer Dapp and Steer Node (Desktop only at launch).

  1. Steer Dapp

    • With Steer Dapp anyone can publish and reuse any app.
    • For yield-generating apps - Liquidity providers can look into the App's performance to deposit and withdraw as per thier risk preference and desired yield.
  2. Steer Node

    • Steer Node App is a desktop app (Mac, Windows, Linux) that provides the following functionality:
      1. Dashboard for a summarized view of the network.
      2. Full view of Apps with all the relevant actions/analytics.
      3. Detailed view of what is happening under the hood of any given app execution (Epoch data)
      4. Consensus data for a certain epoch of an app.
      5. Overall network system details and more.
    • The Steer Node connects directly to the Steer Network. Steer nodes have the ability to connect/share data with the other nodes on the network, execute actions on the Steer network, and form consensus. Read about Nodes on Network.
