Ethereum [ETH] – Only a Tenth of Ethereum dApps Are Active Daily

As little as 10% of the available ERC-20 decentralized applications (dApps) are in use in any given day according to recent stats available on StateoftheDApps. This data has been compiled by LongHash. According to LongHash, there are about 1812 Ethereum DApps that are developed based on the ERC-20 standard. Of these dApps, about 10% (180 dApps) of them have been active in any single day. Data had been compiled up to February 1st, 2019. This shows that despite the proliferation of dApps in the past two years, their usage figures are still wanting.

Taking it a step further to understand the level of frequency, LongHash researched the top 100 most active dApps from the 180 active projects. What they found was that if these figures could be used to estimate the level of blockchain penetration, then decentralized ledger technology is pretty far from the mainstream. About 13% of the 100 dApps (13) recorded figures higher than 100,000 transactions per day. None of the dApps recorded figures above 200,000.

Further stats from DappRadar reveals that only about 8 out of the 50 most active dApps in the market are based on the Ethereum ERC-20 standard. This list is mainly dominated by Tron and EOS dApps. This could be due to the fact that Ethereum is capable of processing fewer transactions than either of its main competitors. Scalability has been a thorn in Ethereum’s flesh for a very long time. Ethereum is capable of processing as much as 15 transactions every second. Both Tron and EOS have the capability of processing thousands of transactions every second.

However, despite these impressive scalability numbers, it does not seem that the market is ready to utilize the maximum capacity of these platforms. So far the market has been yearning for a killer application to no avail. The most active dApp on the list is Dice, which is a betting dApp based on the EOS platform. The application only has about 1400 users recorded an average of 24 hours. Over the past 7 days, Dice has processed close to 8.29 million EOS (worth approximately $23 million) worth of transactions. These figures hardly point to the need for a more scalable platform.

Even though Tron and Eos have higher transaction throughput, the extra capacity over Ethereum is not really being utilized.


Illuminati, Mason, Anonymous I'll never tell. I can tell you this, global power is shifting and those who have the new intelligence are working to acquire this new force. You matter naught except to yourself, therefore prepare for the least expected and make your place in the new world order.
