This is one of the most promising web application development trends in 2018.

This is the key player in ensuring the most secure method of collective data storage. There are an innumerable number of computers in the world with a huge set of information stored on them and this data is decentralized. Blockchain will provide a high level of security in this scenario. The main benefit will be that there will be no intermediaries between the transactions. Every transaction will be verified and will rely upon complex and robust algorithms in spite of a huge number of computers being a part of the process.

5) Single-Page Websites
Single page website tends to be long and smoothly scroll able page where users simply scroll down to gather the required information without any need to visit any other page. In this manner, it saves users from being trapped into complex navigation or multi-level menus. I agree that these are not useful for e-commerce yet they are highly useful for mobile websites. Among the multiple business benefits, one is cost cutting in website designing, hosting and development. These type of websites tend to bring more conversions.
