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.
