Decentralized apps are definitely intriguing. Key advantage is the distribution of essential components, a move that improves fault tolerance and makes it practically impossible and expensive to attack such a network. The backbone of Dapps-blockchain-ensures fast, reliable and secure applications to enhance the customer experience. We are currently working on a dApp which is like eBay, but instead of buying goods, its an online marketplace for services, that's decentralized. What are some cool dApps out there with cool features and concepts? Pls let me know :p

On which blockchain are you building your dapp? Ethereum network is not the best solution as it is slow, glitchy and pricy.
EOS suits this purpose much better. Here's the map of dapps that are currently developed on EOS. However, most of them are still in beta/idea stage.

Always welcome! BTW, here's another EOS dapp collection.
https://eosforum.org/t/eos-dapp-collection-31-listed-currently/309

Some of these dapps coincide with those mentioned on the pic I sent above.
The list is being kept up-to-date. When I last visited that article a couple of months ago, there were only 25 dapps in the list. Now there are 31.

All Dapps (yes I know it can be spelt many ways) should have a real-world purpose. But very few have actual real-world use. A recent meetup in Germany claims to have been managed and operated 100% with Dapps. Ticketing, live streaming, raffles. I suppose that's a demonstration that you can already use Dapps today for the real world.

I've personally only tried one for ID verification. Civic; it's a really old project and has a tagline of "blockchain-powered decentralized authentication solutions", among others. You can try see if it works for you.

Didn't work no matter how many times I tried, the back service eventually had to reroute me to a web service, which completed fairly quickly.

Thought they say EOS Proof of Stake is elitist/Centralized... has that been fixed?

Notwithstanding...
Everipedia does not work for me. It shows Internal Server Error . Wonder if the problem is from my side.

 I love "Scatter" idea. It's an identity and reputation system on Blockchain. It can be a Gamechanger.
Hopefully it works as described:  https://get-scatter.com

I've signed up with Trybe a couple of days ago, it's a blogging platform similar to Steemit, but built on the EOS chain.
It does work a bit different than Steemit though, seems like your articles are manually approved and rated, your rewards are given out according to the rating of your article.

This could be interesting in the future, but it's currently lacking a lot of features still.

https://trybe.one

One that's a little bit more interesting would be Steem Monsters, which is a trading card game on the Steem platform.
They've had huge successes, making more than $200.000 in their first month(s) after launch.

You can buy card packs and you'll get trading cards with varying levels of rarity.
One of the rarest cards in the game has been sold for close to 350 dollars, I believe.

The founder of EOS is doing a good job in Crypto space. However, we should be a bit concerned about the direction he is taking us to. It seems they don't care so much about decentralization and privacy otherwise nobody would have reminded them that EOS isn't decentralized. 
How can posts be manually approved on decentralized platform?

Steemit even ask me few months ago to agree on some of its anti-privacy policy.

Please don't build if it's not Decentralized , Censorship proof, immutable, anonymous etc. We cannot afford to deviate from this important values of Cryptocurrency.

The founder of EOS is doing a good job in Crypto space. However, we should be a bit concerned about the direction he is taking us to. It seems they don't care so much about decentralization and privacy otherwise nobody would have reminded them that EOS isn't decentralized. 

Let me give an answer to both of these remarks. Please, check these stats:
arewedecentralizedyet.com
With the most popular cryptos, >50% of voting/mining power belong to 1-5 entities. What kind of decentralization can we talk about?

With the things said above, EOS is more decentralized than any other crypto. Here are the plain numbers.
20 active block producers + 1 more that is selected from the reserve 188 producers.

If you check the stats at eosnetworkmonitor.io you may see that apart from the main 21 producers, ~20 more have already taken part in the production as well. This increases the total number to 40.

Also, without the possibility to return money in case of fraudulent transactions, there will be no mass adoption for any dapps. So far EOS is the only project that allows doing this.

There are very few realistic use cases for Dapps - the ethereum framework is very immature even at this stage. I read an article on coindesk - https://www.coindesk.com/7-cool-decentralized-apps-built-ethereum/ explaining some of the POCs that have been developed - they seem great in theory but the main question here is whether the vast majority of them even require the decentralized functionality. One cool Dapp is the AMPLIATIVE ART, the guys are developing a pretty cool project. They are using Eth which is the only concern here.

That's right. ECAF (EOS Core Arbitration Forum) is responsible for resolving all controversial situations. It is decentralized as well.

Remember DAO hack in 2016 when $60 mln of ether were stolen? On EOS this transaction could be reversed.
Nobody would agree to lose his money due to hackers' attack or a mistake in the code. Thus, EOS has more chances for mass adoption as it allows to cancel such kind of transactions.

Yet another example of "cool things" that have completely lost their way... You have an arbiter and call it decentralised at the same time?

Bitcoin has no problems for mass adoption *because* it doesn't allow spends to be reversed. That was a problem that needed to be solved with existing money and systems. If you can't see the danger in allowing to cancel transactions, then you need to go back to the drawing board, just like all these projects.

If hackers attack the network or there is a mistake in the code (I'll ignore that there have been countless found, embarrassingly for a multi-billion ICO) then they fix them, not leave a backdoor open like this.
