TRON (TRX) and EOS (EOS) Currently Dominate Blockchain Gaming
According to data from DappRadar, one of the leading dapp market data and dapp distribution platforms, both games built on TRON and EOS currently make up the majority of the top-10 leaderboard for gaming dapps.
Leading the list is Epic Dragons, a browser-based MUD that allows users to play as one of three classes with differing attack powers and attributes. MIXMARVEL, a game platform and content community, recently launched Epic Dragons on the TRON network, as part of a partnership with TRON Arcade that will produce several titles.
The second place spot is currently held by EOS Knights, which was the first and most popular game built on the EOS blockchain. This idle RPG has a polished design and runs smoothly for being the beta version of a blockchain game on a mobile device.
TronGoo, which currently holds the 6th spot, was formerly known as EtherGoo, a competitive blockchain idle game until the development team made the decision to switch to the TRON network from Ethereum. The game itself centers around the acquisition of Goo, either through production or by stealing it from opposing players.
While not included in on DappRadar, the Steem blockchain has gathered more than 2,000 daily active users on Steem Monsters, which would make it third on the list.
Several factors have led to TRON and EOS dominating the leaderboards, including their focus on the blockchain gaming niche. Additionally, recent scaling issues with Ethereum made the decision all to easy for developers with TRON and EOS offering support and funding. However, with the continued development of Loom Network (LOOM) and Enjin (ENJ), game-related activity on Ethereum could soon see a major uptick.
Note: The current tracking platforms also do not provide data on second-layer and off-chain user numbers, so the true leaderboard is likely different than what is presented.
