Gambling persists as a primary use case for “the blockchain” into 2019, with almost half of the top 100 decentralized apps (dapps) still betting-related.
Blockchains EOS and TRON have also solidified themselves as competitors to Ethereum $ETH▲5.7% this year. Together, they make up 74 percent of the top 100 dapps ranked by daily user count, according to DappRadar data reviewed by Hard Fork on May 21.
While most of the top dapps run on EOS and TRON, a majority of those platforms are online casinos that offer blackjack, roulette, and other games of chance powered by cryptocurrency.
Indeed, 64 percent of TRON dapps featured in the top 100 were for gambling. Similarly, 51 percent of top EOS dapps allow users to bet cryptocurrency.
