Ethereum has doubled (97%) its amount of active dapp user in Q2, with a sharp increase from 637,278 in the first quarter to 1,258,527 this quarter, reached its ATH.  At the same time, the number of active dapp users on EOS and Tron also grew by 30% and 50% respectively, reaching 116,389 and 392,657 respectively.

Ever since the Hive hard fork on March 20, various promising Steem-based projects,  including Splinterlands and 3speak have successively announced their migration. In the second quarter, there were no new applications built based on Steem, and the amount of active dapp users on Hive has exceeded Steem.

 

 

In Q2, the transaction volume of ETH dapp is still leading far ahead, maintaining a $10 billion scale - nearly 10 times the sum of EOS and TRON’s.

 

 

There are less than 100 new dapps launched from the 12 blockchains this quarter excluding work in progress and demo products. 99 is also the lowest number of new dapp launched since 2017.

Among them, the DeFi transaction volume of Ethereum was $5.7B in June, accounting for 86% of all transaction volume from the 12 blockchains; and 97.5% of all dapp transaction volume of Ethereum. Especially since the issuance of COMP tokens on June 15, the transaction volume has soared.
