One of the main "selling point" of Ethereum as I understand is that it's also a programing language that can be used for decentralized applications.
My question is what are the actual benefits of decentralized applications? Like, if I'm a developer, why would I want to develop an app on Ethereum and not in the app store where there are more people available to download and use my app? If I'm a person who doesn't know or care about crypto or privacy or decentralization, why would I figure out how to use Ethereum based apps and not just open the Google Play or App Store?
Is it just a matter of privacy or is there any other actual benefit to using Ethereum based apps?
I just don't see Ethereum exploding based on some virtual games where you can use Ethereum to buy a virtual sneaker.
