A report released on April 9 by DApp (Decentralized Application) analytics website DApp.com reveals that Tron (TRX) has the fastest growing DApp user base while Ethereum’s (ETH) DApp user base is shrinking.
Also, gamers were reportedly the most active ETH DApp users, with over 40 percent of the daily active DApp users being gamers, up 10 percent in Q1. The report states:
“The Ethereum-based games have already created a stable community with a group of loyal audience.”
Per the report, in Q1 2019 504 DApps were added to the DApp.com list, of which more than half were Ethereum-based:
“It shows that Ethereum is still the No.1 choice for developers to build their dapp on. At the same time, we also have seen a trend in multi-chain developing, as many Ethereum dapps expand on multiple chains, such as Ethereum + EOS or Ethereum + Tron.”
The number of active DApp users on the Tron blockchain reportedly amounted to over 300,000, while on EOS around 260,000. Also, by the end of Q1 2019, the number of Tron wallets reportedly exceeded 2.3 million and about 15.46 percent of them interacted with DApps. The main driver of growth in the number of Tron DApp users were purportedly gambling apps. On the Ethereum chain, which beats the others when it comes to the number of apps it hosts, there were nearly 600 DApps which did not report a single transaction over the past three months.
