Welcome to the IOST Dapp Rankings v1.2!
On a bi-weekly basis, Q (the dapp lead at Sutler Ventures) will release his latest rankings of dapps within the IOST network. The list includes a ranking from A-F (A being best, F being worst). Users are encouraged to forward dapps they believe should be reviewed and ranked, as well as comment on the existing rankings.
*None of the following content should be construed as financial, investment, legal, or any other type of advice. Users should do their own research before interacting or investing in any type of blockchain/cryptocurrency project.
The IOSTPlay team is absolutely crushing the competition within the network, and with a recent partnership with OnBlock, they will look to begin attracting users outside of our native chain as well as possibly the bigger fish: non-crypto users.
TokenPocket continues along as best-in-class for wallets that offer IOST support. I know I promised you guys a possible review of Cobo Wallet on the last update, but alas, I found myself content with my TP wallet. Next time you’ll get your Cobo Wallet review!
Liebi Pool +1
I found myself very pleased with Liebi Pool’s voting mechanics and user interface. You’d have a hard time convincing me it isn’t the all-around best dApp on IOST, as far as the value it brings to potential users. I exchanged 10,000 IOST for the native VOST token (1:1) and am accruing VOST at a 26.19 APR% that can be instantly exchanged (0.05% fee) back to IOST. The platform is also boasting about soon-to-be integration for Cosmos, Livepeer, Polkadot, and Ethereum. The only downside? It’s a token transfer not stake, so you are trusting a third-party to return your assets.
I don’t know what I’d do without iWallet. No other browser alternative has sprung up from in or outside the ecosystem. Cheers to the developers on this one.
Endless Dice -2
Endless Game has a strong team and has boasted one of the better reputations within the broader dApp community for a long time. However, we haven’t heard from the team in quite a while through any of their social media or Telegram outlets, and with no new games (roadmap had stated Q1 releases), transactions and users are beginning to dry up.
Crypto Ninja *NEW*
I really enjoyed the latest release of Crypto Ninja and revealed gameplay on our latest episode of The IOST Podcast. Is it world changing? No. But it’s not meant to be. The simple layout and easy to understand gameplay is something many foreign dApps get wrong.
I’m not here to instruct you on the nature of gambling dApps. This latest gambling platform includes little unique features, aside from what seems to be an early IOSTDEX iteration. The highest 7d volume on the network means that miners will still find elements attractive and potentially lucrative. As my colleague Dimitry Chesnokov said on the latest The IOST Podcast, these gambling dApps do serve an underrated purpose, as they stress test the network with thousands of transactions!
The IOSTVoter tool, also from Liebi, seems redundant. There are other (better) options for viewing and voting for BPs on our network.
There seems to be major 24User/24Tx discrepancies as it relates to IOSTJoy on the various dApp explorers. I absolutely love the idea for snake gameplay on the blockchain, I just think the execution is missing here.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light, GAMEADC.
Taking a wait and see approach with this dApp. It has OnBlock integration, meaning there is possibly more than meets the eye here.
