The bearish market which lingered almost throughout all 2018 had minimal impact on Tron, and the company really seems to be having the best year so far.
The platform is just a few months old but already has a massive user base and lots of other essential achievements which make its founder Justin Sun more than proud.
It even surpassed the Ethereum platform in almost all categories.
Tron vs. Ethereum
The latest data coming from DappRadar, it seems that the top ranking dApp on the Tron network TRONbet flaunts more users that Ethereum’s IDEX. TRONbet also surpassed it in terms of the number of transactions which take place in 24 hours.
The total value of transactions which are made across 24 hours is much larger on TRONbet.
The app reported over 200 million TRX (about $3.5 million). The IDEX exchange reported a trading volume of 2,6000 ETH.
Alex Sunnarborg, founder of Tetras Capital, a hedge fund focused on digital assets, posted the stats from DappRadar on November 28, highlighting that the leading TRON dApps were all gambling related.
On a similar note, TRON dapp usage also now exceeds ETHs
