According to DappRadar, there are a total of 2,275 dapps across the Ethereum, EOS, Tron and IOST blockchains (which are the top dApp hosting blockchains), and all of these dApps currently have an average of over 172,000 users in 24 hours. In addition to this, they are currently managing a total of 10,143 smart contracts.
According to the tool, the most popular dApps across all four blockchains are in the gambling and gaming categories followed by exchanges; with the EOS-based ADM art dApp being one of the top mentioned overall. Helping them in this respect is the fact that they’ve had 16,700 users in the last 24 hours. Other top players include the ENBank pledging platform at 6,000 average daily users, EOS Knights, and PRA Candybox, which are all EOS-based. Moving beyond the EOS network, Tronbet from the Tron Network has one of the top spots as well as Endless Game IOS on the IOST blockchain. Although the top Ethereum-based dApp, My Crypto Heroes is at position 7 overall, the Ethereum blockchain still leads in terms of the number of dApps deployed.
#1 My Crypto Heroes
My Crypto Heroes is a multiplayer RPG battle game built on the Ethereum Blockchain where players can play with historically inspired heroes, find rare items through quests and play against each other to win rewards and fame. One of the key prizes is EXP, which can be used to level up assets. Aspiring heroes can also discover rare items in level dungeons, which are represented by the Original Extensions token, that’s based on the ERC-721 standard. Those who prefer head-to-head battles can win the same items by besting other players in combat.
Users can then sell these rare items on the in-game marketplace for GUM, which is the platform’s native cryptocurrency. What is also perhaps one of the most interesting ways to earn GUM tokens is by choosing to create new items or player skins for the game itself. Some users eschew all of this in favor of buying the items directly on the market and reselling them for profits. Since this is already occurring, it could be said that My Crypto Heroes has its’ own microcosm of a crypto-driven economy. Above all, players who feel particularly confident can choose to compete in tournaments for GUM tokens and items.
