Dapp.com’s “2018 Dapp Market Report” provides insight into four mainstream blockchains; Ethereum [ETH], EOS, Tron [TRX] and Steem [STEEM].
The report dwells deep into the contribution of each of the aforementioned blockchains in DEX and Dapps ecosystems and also gives an overview of the individual markets.
In 2018, Dapps flourished and reached their peak and the report calls it “Dapp Movement” even though the bear market had struck every cryptocurrency down. Over the year, a total of $6.7 billion in revenue was generated through these Dapps.
DEX [Decentralized Exchanges] also became a core contributor to the Dapp market, as the report mentions that 40% of the total transaction volume for Dapps came from DEX.
The report mentions that a total of 1,423 Dapps were developed at the end of 2018, of which, 1,045 belonged to Ethereum’s blockchain, 235 came from EOS’ blockchain, 97 from Tron, and 46 from Steem.
The total volume of transactions of all these Dapps in conjunction came up to $6.73 billion and DEX contributed a total of $2.61 billion.
Annual Dapp Summary
Ethereum EOS Tron Steem
Dapps: 1045 Dapps: 235 Dapps: 97 Dapps: 46
Total Active Users: 797,153 Total Active Users: 171,170 Users: 71,832 Users: 386,772
Transactions: 20,868,975 Transactions: 107,161,794 Transaction: 98,496,106 Transaction: 52,860,766
Volume: 4,998,320 ETH Volume: 939,209,910 EOS Volume: 36,394,015,674 TRX Volume: 7,471,405
Ethereum blockchain generated a total of $2.66 billion from 1045 Dapps in the year 2018 and 78% of the volume came from DEX.
EOS, on the other hand, generated a total of $3.45 billion from a total of 235 Dapps and 75% of its volume came from betting apps.
Tron generated $605 million from 97 apps and 98% of the total volume came from betting as well.
Steem, however, generated $6.42 million from 46 Dapps.
From the above, one can conclude that while the Ethereum blockchain ecosystem saw the most number of Dapps, it certainly wasn’t the one to generate the most volume. EOS blockchain had significantly lesser Dapps but generated the most volume from these Dapps.
EOS was the one to generate the most volume from these Dapps, which was followed by Ethereum, Tron, and Seem.
Q4 Dapp Summary
A total of 258 Dapps were developed in Q4 of 2018 and these Dapps, put together contributed to a cumulative transaction volume of $2.96 billion. The 258 Dapps had a total of 211,358 users and EOS ranked the first in terms of the number of users, as it had a 69% contribution.

EOS topped again in terms of volume as it contributed a total of 79% of the $2.96 billion, while TRX contributed 20% and ETH had a 1% contribution.
Although Ethereum blockchain seems to have the most number of Dapps it should be noted that Ethereum had the first-mover advantage and Ethereum main net was launched on July 30, 2015.
