From rags to riches  

Bitcoin, the very first cryptocurrency, was listed on an exchange for the first time in June 2010 at the price of $0.30. At the time of writing this article, BTC’s price is comfortably sitting at $3,946.09 while struggling to surpass the psychologically important mark of $4,000.

Ethereum’s (ETH) price increased 68,205 percent (from $0.2 to $136.61 since its very first listing that took place in August 2014). Dash (DASH) comes in third place with a 39,509.52 percent increase.

Coins that failed investors  

Binance Coin (BNB), NEM (XEM), and XRP (XRP) are also among the top 10 most profitable coins.

Meanwhile, Zcash (ZEC), Bitcoin Gold (BTG) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) are the currencies with the biggest loss. ZEC started trading at $4,293 in 2016 while currently trading at $50.82, which gives us a 98.82 percent drop. However, the coin did increase its CMC position as its supply started growing.

There are ten currencies in the top 30 that decreased in value after their initial listing.

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.
