Tron Has Fastest Growing DApp User Base, But Ethereum Is Still The Developers’ First Choice: Report

Published

on

A new report released on April 9 by the DApp (Decentralized Application) analytics website DApp.com is in the altcoin news – revealing that Tron (TRX) has the fastest growing user base while Ethereum (ETH) is shrinking its user base in the DApp ecosystem.

On the Ethereum chain, analysts reported a 4% decrease in the number of DApp users compared to last year. Around 74,422 old users are still using the Ethereum-based DApps in 2019 – while decentralized exchanges (DEXs) are responsible for more than half of the ETH DApp transaction volume, followed by gambling applications.

It seems like gamers are the most active ETH DApp users – with more than 40% of the daily active users reported as gamers – a number which is up by 10% in the first quarter of this year. The report also stated:

“The Ethereum-based games have already created a stable community with a group of loyal audience.”

According to the numbers in it, the Q1 of 2019 showed that 504 DApps were added to the DApp.com list, of which more than half were Ethereum-based.

“It shows that Ethereum is still the No.1 choice for developers to build their dapp on. At the same time, we also have seen a trend in multi-chain developing, as many Ethereum dapps expand on multiple chains, such as Ethereum + EOS or Ethereum + Tron,” the report sums up.

The number of active DApp users on the Tron blockchain reportedly amounted to over 300,000 while on EOS it is around 260,000. The report also showed that by the end of Q1 2019, the number of Tron wallets exceeded $2.3 million and about 15.46% of them interacted with DApps.

Around 85% of Tron’s DApp users interacted with the apps in Q1 2019 which translates to Tron being the most active chain among the four blockchains. The report also pointed out that 95% of the EOS DApps reported a transaction in the first quarter of the current year as did over 80% of Tron and Steem (STEAM) based decentralized apps.

The major American cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase has decided to expand its crypto to crypto trading to more countries, as a recent blog post published by the exchange noted. The news that Coinbase expands went viral on many best cryptocurrency news sites and was well accepted by the crypto community.

The product is now available in the following countries: Argentina, Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Chile, India, Hong Kong, South Korea, Indonesia, the Philippines and New Zealand. As Coinbase explained:
“This could take the form of decentralized versions of traditional financial services like lending or micropayments or truly novel crypto applications that no one has even thought of yet. The ability to convert from one crypto to another will form the backbone of this new decentralized economy.”
Meanwhile, the news that Coinbase expands allow customers in the aforementioned countries to store, trade, send and receive cryptocurrencies. As the latest cryptocurrency news show, the exchange also suggested that cryptocurrencies are moving from the current "investment phase" into the "utility phase" following a number of new use cases. Recently, the company introduced a lot of new developments, one of which was featured in the altcoin news section. It was the added support for EOS (EOS), Maker (MKR) and Augur (REP) which went viral and expanded into cross-border payments. The latter development reportedly enables users to send as well as receive money instantly and convert them into local currency. As part of the news that Coinbase expands, the report concluded:
"Realizing our mission of creating an open financial system for the world starts with making it as easy as possible to access crypto. With today’s announcement, we’re happy to take an important step in that direction."
Earlier in April this year, Coinbase also launched the Coinbase Card in a partnership with Visa, enabling its United Kingdom-based customers to pay in-store and online using cryptocurrencies. As a result, the new service will allow Coinbase to instantly convert the customers' cryptocurrency funds into fiat currency in order to complete each purchase. This is definitely a lot of news coverage showing that Coinbase expands in different directions and is on a mission to offer various trading options globally.

LTC Price Can’t Keep The Pace Any Longer: Crypto Analyst

Published

ltc price
The LTC price was one of the best achievers in 2019 after it managed to increase up to a stunning 162 percent since 2018. In our coming altcoin news, we find out that the strong pace of the cryptocurrency, cannot be maintained any longer, at least that is what one crypto analyst believes. Binance coin was the only one to outperform the LTC price among the rest of the larger-cap crypto assets and Litecoin’s 2019 rally surpassed the price of bitcoin by at least 40 percent leaving the number one cryptocurrency behind. However, it seems that the sixth-largest cryptocurrency is approaching a sell-off period. Crypto brokerage BitOoda posted a note to clients saying that a downward trend is at the phase of creating on the Litecoin chart. This suggests that the LTC price could be on a short-term breakdown territory. The sell-off could cause the value of the altcoin to crash below the $75 support line. Brian Donovan, the EVP of BitOoda explained:
 “We have seen a downward wedge forming over the last week or so. We look for potential breakdown of that $75 near-term support.”
While the analysis from Donovan suggests that traders might want to take advantage of the short-term profits, the litecoin price breakdown does not mean that the altcoin will be weak in the long-term. It only shows that the LTC price will be up for a healthy retracement since its value surged by more than 350 percent after the bear market low at $22. Donovan continued:
 “LTC has rallied from the lows of last December from ~$22 roughly 350%. A short-term retracement would not at all be unlikely NOR would it be a bad sign for the token. Healthy pullbacks can and should occur in an asset that rallies this hard, this fast.”
However, as some of the best cryptocurrency news sites show, not all analysts are convinced that the litecoin support level will reach a breakdown point. The Rhythm Trader posted on Twitter explaining a more bullish scenario. He stated that if the volume is rushed to defending the support level, the LTC price could reach a triple-digit territory:
 “If $LTC shows a little volume here, this could get really interesting with a break of $100 quick if this support holds.”

Tezos Price Rises By 10% Reaching A New Five-Month High

Published

tezos price
Tezos price spiked over the weekend starting a positive movement after multiple rough sessions at the beginning of the week. As the altcoin news show, the XTZ altcoin reached a market cap of $790 million. The Tezos price compared to the dollar exchange rate shows a 10 percent increase by establishing an intraday high at $1.19. The USD/XTZ pair found a slight support level and it is the same one from the Bitcoin Cash forking even in November. The price did drop only to find a bottom area around the $0.34 price point. After the strong rebound, the XTZ value was brought back to $1.19 for the second time in one week. If a break above the $1.19 level happens, this could boost the Tezos price in the near term. The volume distribution on the market looks extremely concentrated on new altcoins. Overall, the XTZ-pairs show a solid $5.69 million worth of trading over the past 24 hours. BitMax, for example, was a host for more than 35.65 percent of those trades mainly against Bitcoin and Ethereum. However, as previously reported in our latest cryptocurrency news, the exchange has a reputation of faking the volumes. It is possible to assume that the Tezos price could find an intraday uptrend and spike further to influence the overall crypto market trend. Over the past 24 hours, most of the crypto assets were trading in green. For example, Bitcoin increased by 2.55 percent against the dollar while Ethereum and Stellar followed. The Minister of Finance of France Bruno Le Maire explained that the Tezos blockchain is superior to its peers. He was also speaking to an audience at the Paris Blockchain Week Summit making bold predictions about the Tezos price as well. He pointed out:
 “France has some nuggets on the entire value chain of new services to companies, hardware, and protocols. I am thinking in particular of Tezos and which allows the development of a blockchain protocol overcoming the known defects of public blockchains.”
The Tezos price was already improving after the partnership with Coinbase crypto exchange. Both of the companies now allow institutional investors to ear passive rewards. San Francisco-based Coinbase even promised up to 6.6 percent yearly returns to the investors.
