Little impact on price

While the number of Bitcoin addresses increased by 17 percent since Jan. 20 till March 17, the Bitcoin price only experienced minuscule growth of 1 percent over the same period of time. The fact that there is a divergence between the number of addresses and the Bitcoin price doesn’t necessarily mean that another bull run is in the offing. In fact, there was steady growth in active addresses during the prolonging bear market (since 2014 till 2016), and it didn’t impact the price.

The TAAR metric  

Transaction volume is a more reliable metric when it comes to determining the tops and bottoms of the Bitcoin market. However, in order to get the most precise correlation, one has to factor both average trading volumes and the number of active users (the TAAR metric). The TAAR tends to be a fairly accurate indicator of an upcoming bullish/bearish trend.

The recently published report by DappReview encompasses everything related to the growth of decentralized applications (dApps) in the first half of 2019. When it comes to the most popular category of dApps, gambling ones appear to be in the lead by a big margin.

Upping the ante

The “Casino” category has the biggest chunk of the pie with 606 newly created dApps. For comparison, there are only 398 gaming dApps, which occupy second spot. “High-risk” dApps are trailing behind the gaming ones with 358 newly created apps.  

DappReview explains that the main reason behind their popularity is that they are relatively cheap and easy to create, but, nonetheless, they generate great returns for their developers. 

On top of that, there doesn’t seem to be a shortage of risk-loving crypto enthusiasts. 

dApps are doing just fine

Overall, the report points out that rapid growth has become a new trend in the dApps department. More than 1,114 dApps have been already created this year. Tron boasts the biggest amount of newly created dApps while Ethereum and EOS come in second and third places respectively.

Notably, only one percent of users tried more than ten dApps, but they are responsible for the lion’s share of the total transactions on each of the aforementioned networks.
