IDEX, a decentralized exchange with real-time trading and high-transaction throughput, had 1,634 users over the past 24 hours. IDEX is ranked 67th in crypto-asset exchange volume, with 335 markets and a 24-hour volume just shy of $2 million.
333 ETH, a seedy-looking dApp featuring “life-long payments guaranteed by the Ethereum blockchain,” had 1,066 users over the past 24 hours. Immediately when opening the 333 ETH website, a bright red screen popped up reading:
“MetaMask believes this domain could currently compromise your security and has prevented you from interacting with it. This is because the site tested positive on the Ethereum Phishing Detector. This includes outright malicious websites and legitimate websites that have been compromised by a malicious actor”
ForkDelta, a decentralized Ethereum token exchange that is a fork of EtherDelta, had 715 users over the past 24 hours. ForkDelta is the 99th in crypto-asset exchange volume, with 224 markets and a measly 24-hour volume of roughly $42,000.
“CryptoKitties,” a Vancouver-based game that allows users to collect and breed virtual cats, had 415 users over the past 24 hours. With funding from big names including Union Square Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, Fred Ehrsam, Naval Ravikant, and Mark Pincus, “CryptoKitties” and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have definitely caught some attention in the crypto space. In fact, a digital kitten once sold for $170,000 (600 ETH).
“Etheremon,” a Singapore-based non-fungible token game combining blockchain and virtual reality, had 374 users over the past 24 hours. Etheremon has partnerships with Decentraland, Kyber Network, OPSkins, Toshi (now Coinbase Wallet), OpenSea and Ginco. Making money in “Etheremon” requires training and selling Mons or mining EMONT, an ERC-20 token.
Given the Top 5 Ethereum DApps by Daily Active Users only had 4,205 users over the past 24 hours, it is quite evident that the adoption of Ethereum leaves much to be desired. It is interesting to note that decentralized exchanges and non-fungible token games have a, relatively speaking, decent amount of traffic.
