According to recent charts tracking the dApp performance and their daily active users (DAU), TRON dApps have seen a massive increase in the number of users within the last month. On January 8th, TRON dApps had around 18,500 active users — a number which has skyrocketed to 62,724 as of February 8th.
Within a single month, TRON dApp DAU number surged by 239%, while Ethereum lost around 31% of its DAU or 4,275 users. Another big competitor in the dApp sector, EOS, has also seen growth in its DAU, although a much smaller one of only 14% (9,534 users).
Why did TRON’s DAU number grow?
TRON has been one of the most popular projects in 2018. However, it recently started attracting even more attention due to several events.
The first one is the launch of the BitTorrent token (BTT), which happened on January 28th, 2019. The token sale was held on Binance Launchpad, a platform dedicated to increasing exposure of promising projects. BTT is a part of TRON’s ecosystem, and the event has been very beneficial for TRX as well.
Another reason why TRON has seen more activity recently is also connected to BTT, and it includes a series of airdrops that will gift BTT to TRX holders. The airdrops are expected to happen on occasion throughout the next six years.

Furthermore, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world, Binance, decided to support TRON and BitTorrent, which brought additional attention to both projects, as well as to TRON’s entire ecosystem. So much so, in fact, that TRX managed to double its value within only 30 days, starting from December 17th, 2018. During this period, TRX price grew from $0.0127 to $0.025, with the coin’s current price being at $0.026498, according to TradingView.
Also, TRON’s dApps have been relatively popular in the crypto community ever since they appeared on its platform, most of which are gambling and gaming-oriented. As a result, the TRON ecosystem has become one of the fastest-growing ones in the crypto space, and the recent reports regarding its DAU numbers confirm it.
