This might be a big sign that TRON and EOS is posing a threat to Ethereum.
Justin Sun, who’s well known for speaking up about the latest updates on TRON recently made another tweet about this topic.

One of the biggest argument that is coming into the discussion is that most of the dApps being built on TRON and EOS are gambling apps which doesn’t require much effort to build. The community has been saying that these are “copy and paste” applications that can be duplicated easily by an experienced developer.
op volume over the last week on each networks popular dApps saw Ethereum coming in third once again with $3.7m on their gambling dApp ‘FCK’. EOS took second place with $50.6m on the gambling dApp ‘Dice’. Trons super popular TRONbet took top spot with an impressive $83.9m worth of volume over 7 days. It’s important to note that these are “gambling apps.”
Gambling dApps are a cut above the rest in terms of popularity. However, most will argue that gambling dApps do little to push mass adoption and real world use-cases. One thing is noticeably clear, Ethereum is lagging behind EOS and TRX, even if it is mostly just gambling apps.
Does this mean that Ethereum’s growth will slow down in 2019? Not necessarily. It is important to note that the big spike in Ethereum initially came from the ICO craze back in 2017, since Ethereum was one of the only platforms companies could build their apps on.
It’ll be exciting to see what Ethereum has in the pipeline for future development to attract more companies into their ecosystem.
