Building web3 dApps can feel like a marathon obstacle course for developers. You spend hours trying to troubleshoot a small bug in your web3 dApp, only to find out that the problem was caused by a typo in one of your smart contract functions. Or — you think you’ve finally mastered the art of web3 development, only to realize that you forgot to factor in gas fees and your users are getting charged exorbitant transaction fees. You have to jump over the hurdles of app complexity, smart contract creation, and application architecture planning. It’s like trying to solve a Rubik’s cube blindfolded while doing a cartwheel..

And if you thought that was bad, wait until you see the high cost of development. It’s like buying a new car with only a piggy bank full of coins. Smart contract development can cost a whopping $10,000, and a full-stack app development can be as much as $20,000. Development puts a dent in your wallet, with costs ranging from a small fortune to a king’s ransom!

But even if you manage to overcome the complexity and the cost, you still have to deal with the extended time it takes for your product to reach the market. It can feel like waiting for a snail to complete a race. Development and testing can be time-consuming, and obtaining user acceptance and validating the product can take longer than anticipated.

The upcoming articles will delve into how Xircus overcame the obstacles in building web3 dApps. These articles will explore the key features and use cases. Despite the challenges, the effort of building web3 dApps is worthwhile, akin to climbing a mountain and witnessing an awe-inspiring view from the summit. As technology progresses, more resources and tools will be accessible, thereby making the journey easier for developers. So, it’s time to lace up your running shoes and surmount those hurdles!
