DeFi applications Contributed More Than 2.275 million ETH in Q3: Report

While the second quarter of Ethereum application users was not such an active one, the wave of DeFi (Decentralized Finance) has brought in more than 310,000 new users. MakerDao and Nest Are The Leading Defi Apps DeFi applications have contributed more than 2.275 million Ethers in the third quarter. Also, these applications account for more than 58% of all Ethereum applications. The former’s revenue has exceeded more than $525 million in the quarter, with decentralized financial applications in Ethereum accounting for total financial transactions. Leading DeFi apps on Ethereum include MakerDao and Nest. MakerDAO is a decentralized credit platform on Ethereum that supports Dai, a stablecoin pegged to USD. As of March 2019, only ETH can be used as collateral. A planned upgrade to Multi-Collateral Dai is likely to add support for other assets. Source- DeFi Pulse Whereas the Nest dApp supports mutual mortgage lending between mainstream Ethereum assets such as Ethereum(ETH), Tether(USDT), Maker Dao(MKR), DAI, Basic Attention Token (BAT), Omise Go(OMG), and the LOOM token. Source- dapp.com Q3 Witnessed More than 500,000 New Users Also, Q3 saw more than 500,000 new users who started using decentralized applications. Of which more than 138,000 (27.6%) of them started using financial services applications, and 170,000 ( 34%) of them still entered the application field due to gambling applications. Drop-in dApp Transaction Volume Also, a recent report by decentralized app platform dapp.com released a few days back found that dapp transaction volume has dropped on major blockchain ecosystems by almost 40 percent compared to last quarter. The figures have plummeted from $3.28 billion to $2.03 billion, despite huge growth in the decentralized finance (DeFi) industry. The report analyzed six major blockchains. These included Ethereum, EOS, TRON, Steem, TomoChain, and IOST. Reportedly, these blockchains have the most active users in the market. The report revealed that 150 dApps were launched in Q3 which is far less than the average amount of dApps released every month during the first half of the year- 165 apps per month. Will DeFi continue to have the same success in Q4? Let us know, what you think in the comments below!

Cryptocurrency Exchange OKEx Korea Delists XMR, DASH, ZEC, ZEN, SBTC

Cryptocurrency exchange OKEx Korea announced the end of Monero (XMR), DASH, Zcash (ZEC), Horizen (ZEN) and Super Bitcoin (SBTC) trading as of today, Oct. 10. Per the Oct. 2 announcement, the assets have been delisted today. A previous version of the announcement was published on Sept. 10. That being said, since then the support for privacy coins ZEC and DASH has been defined as temporarily suspended due to regulatory concerns. Regulatory concerns over privacy coins More precisely, OKEx Korea reports having received a request to end the transaction support and review the compliance with the ‘Travel Rules’ according to the Financial Action Task Force recommendations. The exchange promised that the final decision concerning the support of DASH and Zcash will be announced at a later date in a separate announcement. Delisting of privacy coins over regulatory concerns is nothing new. In September, South Korean cryptocurrency exchange Upbit announced that it would stop trading for six cryptocurrencies, including some so-called privacy coins. Other recent delistings Also in September, major cryptocurrency exchange Binance announced that it is removing about 30 trading pairs from its platform. Interestingly, six of those trading pairs involved tokens launched on Binance Launchpad — its initial exchange offering platform. As Cointelegraph reported yesterday, crypto exchange Poloniex has announced that it is delisting six digital currencies: Clams (CLAM), Pascal (PASC), Steem (STEEM), Navcoin (NAV), GameCredits (GAME) and LBRY Credits (LBC).

Is It Time To Buy 1UP Tokens And Level Up Your Uptrennd Account? Why I Think The Time Is Now!

Uptrennd the Time Is Now to Get Involved! My wife Anabell Hilarski and I are pretty well known to be early adopters and users of Steemit. We saw what the possibilities were early on and we put all of our social media focus into Steemit for almost two years. We were even part of the team from September 2016 until June of 2017. It was a great crypto learning experience and we made a considerable amount of Bitcoin during this period. Fast forward to mid 2018 when the founder of Uptrennd Jeff Kirdeikis first let me know about his new project. I was so involved with other projects that I had little time to look into it but I was proud that one of my crypto friends was taking on such a large task. Then in the beginning of 2019, I jumped headfirst into Uptrennd. I began reposting all of my CryptoDaily articles to the platform. I engaged some and was able to make it to level 13. I think I did buy about $100 worth of 1UP tokens before they were listed on any exchanges, via the platform. I always believe that if I am going to use something I should support it financially. Is It Time to Level Up Your Uptrennd Account? Buying Uptrennd 1 Up Tokens and Leveling Up to Level 22. Last week the team announced the ability to take 1UP tokens from our MyEtherWallet and deposit them on the Uptrennd platform. I bought 43,000 1UP tokens on IDEX and followed the steps to load them to my account. I then proceeded to level up from 13 all the way to 22. 1UP tokens are an ERC20 token. My decision to buy 1UP tokens was twofold. Increase my ROI per vote and to support the team. I really believe they are building something great. An example of ROI. If each 1UP token is $.01 then 1 vote is $.01. Since I leveled up to level 22 each vote that other Uptrennd members give me is now worth 3.1X more. So an upvote on my content would then be worth $.033. So if I was to receive 100 upvotes I would technically be able to get a return of $3.30 on my content vs. $1 if my account was still at level zero. Currently, the price of 1UP is $.007 on October 8, 2019. Below is the multiplier of each vote for each level up to 22. There are many more levels that are increasingly more difficult to achieve. If Uptrennd Continues to Grow I Suspect We Will See Fireworks Regarding the Price of the Token. Any true content creator will see the value of leveling up their Uptrennd account. I personally am happy with a 3.1X per vote on my content. When I made the call to buy Steem at $.07 and it went to almost $4 I felt like a genius. 1UP could repeat the action in the next crypto bull run.

Good News For TRON Enthusiasts As TRX Dethrones Cardano To Become 11th Largest Cryptocurrency

Tron (TRX) is now the eleventh-largest cryptocurrency with a $1.13 billion market cap. After swimming in a blood bath for quite some time, the Justin Sun brainchild is showing signs of recovering. This comes on the heels of a great mention of Tron by DApps-centric analytics firm Dapp.com. On top of that, TRX could soon be on McAfee’s new decentralized exchange McAfeeDEX. As for Sun’s lunch with Warren Buffett, the Tron founder recently rekindled the hopes of it finally happening. Meanwhile, TRX is trading at $0.017484 with 6.21% gains on the day. Dapp.com Q3 Report: Tron Is The Largest Blockchain Platform Launched After 2017 In the report recently published, Dapp.com assessed DApps built on Ethereum, Steem, EOS, TomoChain, and IOST blockchains. EOS seemingly has the highest retention rate of 40% from Q2 in comparison to 5% and 15% for ethereum and TRON respectively. Tron has added 500,000 new users in Q3, making the blockchain the largest DApp platform launched after 2017. Justin Sun noted this great news on his Twitter account. TRON On McAfeeDEX On October 4, computer engineer, crypto advocate, and US Presidential aspirant John McAfee announced the launch of McAfeeDEX, which he promised will be fully decentralized and private. McAfee eventually launched the beta version of the ethereum-based exchange on October 7. Per information on its official website, McAfeeDEX will not require customers to provide any personal information like bank details, emails, or documents. Besides being available for everyone, there will be no restrictions, listing fees, and nothing will be monitored. In short, McAfeeDEX bears some semblance to other decentralized non-custodial exchanges like EtherDelta and IDEX. Here’s the key differentiating factor. McAfee noted that McAfeeDEX will have shared liquidity. In other words, all the McAfeeDEX portals will have access to all trading information passing through other portals as well as the DEX. With this feature, the platform will be accessible from several hosts and locations. Surprisingly, the news appeared to be bullish on Tron (TRX). McAfee tweeted confirming that McAfeeDEX is “coming” to Tron caused a five percent surge in TRX. Lunch With Warren Buffett To Be Rescheduled ‘Very Soon’ In late September, Justin Sun confirmed during a live stream that he is rescheduling the charity lunch with crypto-skeptic billionaire Warren Buffett. In the live stream, Sun noted that the lunch will be rescheduled “very soon” after having some discussions with Warren Buffett’s team, adding: “I think it’s gonna happen and I’m excited about it. But the details I think we can release in Q4, so just stay tuned.” As ZyCrypto reported, Sun paid top dollar to attend a luncheon with the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway Warren Buffett and a guest list of his choice. Justin had even extended an invitation to the United States President Donald Trump. Yet, a few days before the hotly-awaited lunch, Sun postponed the event, citing his affliction with kidney stones. Shortly afterward, he apologized for over-marketing the lunch. Sun’s hanky-panky seriously bruised the price of TRX. To add salt to injury, the coin dropped to the 14th position in coin rankings at some point. At the moment, TRX is notably the biggest winner among the top 12 cryptocurrencies. This surge definitely comes as a relief for TRX investors and traders who have had their fair share of bearish cycles this year.

TRON Hits Another Milestone, Adding 500K Users In Q3 Alone Pushing Total Addresses To 3.7 Million

Justin Sun, Tron’s lead, today shared a report by Dapp.com, which showed that the platform added 500,000 users in quarter 3 of 2019 alone — pushing the total number of addresses on the mainnet over 3.7 million. This feat ranks Tron the second most used ecosystem after Ethereum. TRON; The Second Largest Blockchain Ecosystem Today Since 2019, Tron has made steady growth. The project was established during the 2017 hype but did not launch its mainnet till May 2018. Ever since the mainnet launched, the platform has continued to see steady growth. This growth can be attributed to the project’s leader carrying his community along with every move - especially on acquisitions, partnership deals, etc. As per the report, Dapp.com compared six mainstream blockchains - Ethereum, EOS, TRON, Steem, TomoChain, and IOST. However, The Tron platform, according to Dapp.com’s, was the second most active ecosystem between July and September of 2019. It was also revealed that a total number of 47 Dapps were launched, bringing the number of active Dapps in this quarter to 299. The report also records a total volume of $462 million for Tron during this same time period. Justin Sun Called A “Hype Man” Despite this impressive achievement, as revealed by Dapp.com, some members of the community claim that Justin Sun lies about dApps usage. One many Twitter users, @CincinnatusBTC, who claimed Justin Sun lied about this new feat, shared an unconfirmed conversation among Tron dapp developers. In the conversation, it’s revealed that Justin Sun “inflates numbers on his own trondice and trx.markets dapps.” Another user, @jeffreyrufino, while throwing shades at Justin Tron says; “More fake users from Chinese server farms.” However, some other members congratulated the founder for his remarkable work on Tron and the recent milestone hit. They also hope that the platform continues on its part to success.

Study: DApp Transaction Volumes, User Base Slump in Q3 2019

Decentralized applications’ (DApps) transaction volume and user activity have slumped in the third quarter of 2019, a new study shows. DApp.com — an analytics platform for DApps built on Ethereum, EOS, Steem, Tron, TomoChain, IOST and Blockstack — revealed its recent findings in a news release shared with Cointelegraph on Oct. 7. An overall market assessment showed that DApps built on the six aforementioned blockchains reported a total transaction volume of $2.03 billion in Q3, down 40% compared with Q2. Only 36% of the DApp users from Q2 used DApps at least once in Q3, which also indicates a notable drop. Ethereum, Tron and EOS DApp performance Although Ethereum DApps’ performance was generally steady when compared with the other blockchains, most of the active users in Q2 reportedly did not use any Ethereum DApps in Q3. Both Q2 and Q3 saw 80,000 Ether (ETH) holders using DApps. EOS had the highest user retention among all reported blockchains, with 40% of old EOS DApp users being involved in Q3, while Ethereum and Tron reported 5% and 15% respectively. At the same time, the number of mainnet accounts and new DApp users for EOS showed the slowest growth in Q3, compared with Ethereum and Tron. Tron has reportedly kept its position as the second-most popular blockchain to build DApps, following Ethereum, and the largest blockchain platform launched after 2017. Tron experienced a 500,000 user growth on the mainnet in Q3. DeFi application performance The study indicates that decentralized finance (DeFi) apps reported over $525 million in growth in Q3, with Ethereum-based DeFi apps contributing more than 88%, or 132,000 users, of the total volume in the finance sector. The report further states: “500,000+ new users access to dapps in Q3. Over 138,000 (27.6%) of them started picking up dapps for Finance services and over 170,000 (34%) of them were bought into space by Gambling dapps.” According to crypto analytics firm Diar, Ether volumes on DApps registered a new high in May, but new DApps coming on-chain were significantly low. At the time, it marked a four-month growth trend in on-chain volumes, with 776,000 ETH transacted.

DApps Out, DeFi In: Dapp.com Publishes Q3 Report

DApps are only gaining traction slowly - and in some cases losing ground - but DeFi may accelerate the use of blockchain. That’s the TLDR of Dapp.com‘s Decentralized Application Trends Report for Q3 2019, released today. The report highlights several worrying trends for dApps in the third quarter, which posted significantly lower figures than the previous period. The report analyzed dApps on six platforms it deemed to be mainstream, which included Ethereum, EOS, Steem, TRON, TomoChain and IOST. Total transaction volume over this period added up to $2.03 billion, which may seem like an impressive number, but is actually a 40% drop compared to Q2. DApp developers also seem to have taken a few chill pills: while in the first half of the year they averaged creating 164.6 new dApps every month, in the three months of Q3 they released less than 150 per month. Users have likewise cooled off, with only 36% of Q2 dApp users having used them even just once in Q3. While these are discouraging statistics, it may be a growing pain on the path to something greater. Compared with the 2018 report, we see much less of a dominance for gambling and pyramid schemes - and more of sound Decentralized Finance. Ethereum Leads the DeFi Race Where one buzzword falls, another one takes its place. Decentralized Finance has seen huge growth in Q3, and the vast majority was picked up by Ethereum. Over $525M passed through DeFi services this quarter, and Ethereum accounted for 88% of the total volume. A distinction can be seen even in ETH-only stats, where finance accounts for a much larger proportion of its volume than for other blockchains. DApp volume on Ethereum by Dapp.com DeFi, exemplified by projects such as Maker, InstaDApp, and Nest, has been largely dominating the volume charts this quarter. The sharp increase of the High-risk category (a more polite version of scam) is likely attributable to the FairWin Ponzi scheme that played out in September. Overall, DeFi seems to be gaining traction with new users, 27.6% of whom preferred dApps, compared to 34% for gambling. Speaking of which... EOS and TRON as the Digital Vegas Strip The dPoS blockchains produced some mixed accomplishments, with EOS achieving the highest user retention rate from Q2 of 40%, compared with Ethereum’s 5% and TRON’s 15%. Despite this, EOS’ overall growth has been the slowest among the top dApp blockchains, with fewer than 220,000 new accounts. TRON has performed comparatively well, adding 500,000 new users in Q3 that contributed to making it the largest dApp platform launched after 2017. But they are the least diverse in terms of dApp categories, with gambling comprising the majority of the volume: 63% for EOS and 86% for TRON. TRON dApp volume in Q3 Gambling is a relatively niche field. The global market size for gambling stands at around $450 billion, compared to $1.5 trillion for financial services in the U.S. only. Failing to diversify could leave the gambling platforms far behind their DeFi-friendly competition. The post DApps Out, DeFi In: Dapp.com Publishes Q3 Report appeared first on Crypto Briefing.

How to Leverage Gaming Cryptocurrencies for your Investment Portfolio

The gaming industry remains one of the most active sectors of the global economy. In 2018, the gaming industry brought in around $138.7 billion in revenue. All industry projections paint a strong growth phase for gaming, making it one of the best industries to invest in today. With the advent of mobile gaming, the industry revenues are set to continue growing, reaching $180.1 billion by 2021. Cashing in with Gaming Cryptocurrencies But how do you get a piece of this pie? Cryptocurrency provides a way to cash in on the growth in gaming. As the cryptocurrency industry continues growing fast, it is now possible to diversify from the main digital currencies. While Bitcoin and Ethereum continue dominating the market, the emergence of alternative gaming cryptocurrencies offers investors an opportunity to make money. Game developers now create in-game digital currencies to allow players to buy virtual items and complete other transactions. It is a niche where the bigger players like Bitcoin have not ventured yet. If you want to cash in on the growth of gaming and cryptocurrencies, you need to identify the best gaming cryptocurrencies. Integration of Cryptocurrencies in Gaming So, how do these cryptocurrencies work on a gaming platform? It is important to understand how cryptocurrencies work to identify the investment opportunities available in the gaming industry. Game developers now integrate new cryptocurrencies in their products through: Tokenization of Game Assets If you have ever played a video game, you have probably used unique in-game currencies. It is possible to upgrade your game level using this currency and winners get rewards in the in-game currency. You can also buy virtual items including merchandize, weaponry and other items necessary to continue playing. Traditionally, this currency is only applicable to the playing platform. However, game developers have now started tokenizing their game asset by leveraging blockchain technology. It means you can now use your in-game cryptocurrency outside the gaming platform. Winnings through Cryptocurrency While most games have winnings in the form of in-game currencies, some game developers now offer cryptocurrencies to reward gamers and even developers. You can also trade this virtual currency outside the game which makes it a popular tradeable crypto-asset. As an investor, the development of gaming cryptocurrencies provides an irresistible business opportunity.

‘The Business Blockchain’ Author Predicts $25k for Bitcoin, $1k for Ethereum by the End of 2019

Coinspeaker ‘The Business Blockchain’ Author Predicts $25k for Bitcoin, $1k for Ethereum by the End of 2019Popular cryptocurrency evangelist and author of “The Business Blockchain: Promise, Practice, and Application of the Next Internet Technology,” William Mougayar took to Twitter last week to make big and bold predictions for several cryptocurrency tokens; among them Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Binance Coin (BNB) and others.In his extremely bullish prediction, he put Bitcoin’s price as at the end of the year to be $25,0000, Ethereum at $1,000, BNB at $50, EOS at $7 and even STEEM at $.50. This, of course, generated all sorts of reactions from many of his followers who thought that he was playing around.End of year predictions:ETH @ $1,000BTC @ $25,000ETC @ $50ATOM @ $20BNB @ $50DOT @ $250EOS @ $7KIN @ $.0001STX @ $1.50 (Stacks)XTZ @$2 STEEM @ $.50Total Crypto Mkt Caps $750 B.BTC dominance will end at 55%. ETC at 15%. Top 20 at 95%.[this is not trading advice]— William Mougayar (@wmougayar) September 18, 2019He further went on to predict a 55% market dominance for Bitcoin, Ethereum Classic (ETC) at 15% and the top 20 cryptocurrencies at 95%.Strangely, Ripple’ XRP was excluded from the price predictions and when queried about it by Twitter user @tfergtrades, he replied:I don’t have insights into XRP so didn’t want to shoot in the dark.— William Mougayar (@wmougayar) September 18, 2019This, of course, goes to show his bias for a certain class of cryptocurrencies as against others.The Launch of Bakkt Indicates New Life in the Crypto SpaceBitcoin which is still the king of the crypto space has been moving sideways so far. This has created a situation where investors and hodlers of the cryptocurrency are wondering what exactly is going on. The truth be told, no one thought that crypto winter would end so soon. But now that it has, everyone is wondering where next the crypto space is going and which cryptocurrency will be the next big thing.The launch of Bakkt which is a cryptocurrency trading house owned by ICE who are the owners of the New York Stock Exchange and several others has indicated that though crypto winter is gone and markets are yet to fully thaw, mass adoption of cryptocurrencies is indeed on its way but may not happen in the way that William thinks.This may not happen because major regulatory hurdles are yet to be overcome in major markets. Already, the United States Congress is ready to hold hearings on cryptocurrencies with key officials of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) after Bakkt’s launch.Other cryptocurrency projects such as the reintroduction of Binance back to the United States markets also hold promise for the crypto space.Crypto enthusiasts may tend to be right some of the time but not all of it. The crypto space has crossed that line where we can wake up and make predictions based on emotion. As with all things with the crypto space, a Bitcoin price of $25,000 is possible but we might need to wait for a terrain where regulation and adoption are two major fundamental issues being faced by all cryptocurrencies.‘The Business Blockchain’ Author Predicts $25k for Bitcoin, $1k for Ethereum by the End of 2019

Is Bitcoin Legal In The US? Cryptocurrency Regulations Trends | Crypto-Geography - Part 2

In case you missed you can check out the first part of this series here. Is Bitcoin Mining Legal in the United States? As implied by the FinCEN regulations, there’s no obligation on keeping virtual currencies. While spending, trading and exchanging crypto for fiat currency are considered money transmitters and should be reported. In June 2019, Squire Mining (SQRMF), a Canadian mining mogul with the most hashpower, signed a letter of intent to host blockchain cloud computing units - over 41,000 Bitcoin - to the United States. As mining migrates from China to the US, the latter is changing priorities from application and protocol development to focusing on infrastructure. How to Buy, Store and Spend Crypto in the USA If you’re wondering how interested Americans really are in the cryptosphere, here’s a fun fact: Bitcoin has become so popular that as a term it has outrun Kim Kardashian and Donald Trump in search requests by three times. Source: Consensys Bitcoin is going mainstream in the States. It is already accepted as a payment by retailers and services like Overstock and NewsEgg and some major tech companies like Microsoft. The United States has over 3500 cryptocurrency ATMs and tellers - that’s 64% of all the crypto ATMs in the world. There is even a list of major cities in the US with ATM installations. Unsurprisingly, the top-5 cities are Los Angeles (372), Chicago (250), Miami (199), Atlanta (171) and Detroit (149). Despite the huge amount of tellers where you can buy BTC, XRP, ETH, etc. a majority of people prefer to buy crypto via the various exchanges and crypto services online. Cryptocurrency has become an important aspect of local economies. California, New Jersey, Washington, New York, Colorado, Utah, Florida, Alaska, Nevada, and Massachusetts are the states with the largest amount of citizens who have cryptocurrency. In 2018, Finder surveyed 2000 US citizens to get an approximate idea of what coins Americans prefer to store. It comes as no surprise that Bitcoin is the number one cryptocurrency in the US. Source: finder.com Is Trading Bitcoin legal in America? The question was raised on the federal level by the Securities and Exchange Commission, but the focus was on the use of blockchain assets as securities, such as whether or not certain Bitcoin investment funds should be sold to the public, and whether or not a certain offering is fraudulent. However, the SEC’s report focused entirely on Initial Coin Offerings, so the results don’t apply to BTC. To trade securities on the Blockchain, a company must register as an exchange, Alternative Trading System (ATS) or a broker/dealer. Top cryptocurrency businesses in the USA In addition to the wide user base of cryptocurrencies in the US, the country is also home to some of the most influential crypto projects in the industry. American crypto projects range from powerful exchanges to headline grabbing social media experiments. Here are some of the most notable. LedgerX is a New-York based Bitcoin trading platform. As a start-up, LedgerX was actively lobbying for Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies and after a few years got a derivatives clearing organization license from the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission. That opened the door for the platform to bring classical financial tools to the cryptosphere. In November 2017, LedgerX launched the first long-term BTC options. Ripple constantly finds itself the subject of debate in the crypto community regarding its centralised nature. Despite the mixed feelings, Ripple is already working with hundreds of financial institutions to drive crypto adoption and has launched the University Blockchain Research Initiative to support the research and development of blockchain technology. Gemini is a crypto exchange based in NYC that was created by the Winklevoss brothers. In 2016, Gemini became the world’s first licensed cryptocurrency exchange. Also, Gemini holds the distinction of being the first institution to launch Bitcoin futures contracts. Stellar was co-founded by Jed McCaleb, who was also among Ripple’s founders. The company strives to provide banking services for unbanked people. Their team is working to improve cross-border transactions and reduce fees and transfer times. Steem is the native cryptocurrency of the blockchain-based social platform Steemit where users are rewarded for writing posts, commenting, reading and curating content. The NY-based company was founded by Ned Scott and Dan Larimer, who is also known as the CTO of EOS and creator of BitShares. Libra Coin Libra deserves its own section as it is one of the most controversial crypto projects that are sure to change the cryptocurrency market and the entire financial sector. The project initiated by Facebook, with Visa, Mastercard, and PayPal among its 27 charter members, is set to join the pantheon of premier US cryptocurrency projects. Facebook decided to launch the project to give financial freedom to 2,000,000,000 adults around

5 Popular Blockchain Games Worth Checking out This Week

Blockchain games have become a genuine hit in the cryptocurrency world. Players can choose from many different offerings in the hopes of having fun and perhaps earning some rewards. Based on statistics by SateotheDapps, it seems the following five blockchain games successfully attract a lot of users. That in itself shows this industry should not be overlooked by anyone. EOS Dynasty Although the EOS Dynasty is losing one spot in the overall blockchain games rankings on the website, its number of users in the past 24 hours is rising With just under 2,000 active players in a day, it is safe to say this RPG and PvP game is checking a lot of the right boxes. Under the hood, it is a very immersive game running on the EOS blockchain. Users can earn native TKT tokens to participate in dividends or even trade assets in the marketplace to earn EOS. My Crypto Heroes One of the most popular blockchain games to date comes in the form of My Crypto Heroes. It is a hero worker-placement RPG, which boasts just over 2,000 users in the past 24 hours. It is also one of the few games accessible on mobile, which is certainly a selling point. Unlike the game above, this one is running on the Ethereum blockchain. Competition between different blockchains is never a bad thing. EOS Knights Fantasy games always tend to attract a large following. Whether it is the traditional kind or a blockchain game, users will flock to it regardless. EOS Knights had over 2,400 active players in the past 24 hours, which is rather impressive. This is another game running on the EOS blockchain and compatible with mobile devices. Steem Monsters Although many people had high hopes for blockchain collectibles, things have worked out very differently in recent years. Luckily, some games are still popular, as can be seen in the case of Steem Monsters. This collectible trading card game welcomed 2,716 players in the past day. They seem to enjoy this multiplayer card game, as assets can be sold or traded on the blockchain. For a Steem dApp, this appears to be one of the most successful offerings to date. Prospectors One wouldn’t necessarily expect a multiplayer online real-time economic strategy game to be very successful. Prospectors proves everyone wrong in this regard, as it served over 3,000 active players today. Although the dApp has seen a dropoff in terms of EOS volume, people still seem to enjoy the strategy game today. Another one of those blockchain games running on EOS which seems to captivate an audience.
