Christian Crowley of the analytics firm Alethio performed at ConsenSys Community Day on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange to share data on the number of DApps (decentralized applications) being deployed on the Ethereum blockchain.
Finance Magnates reports that Crowley said 700 tokens and 1,090 DApps had been deployed by 2017. Crowley also states that 100,000 new users are joining the network every day with 1 million transactions per day. There are currently 35 million unique Ethereum addresses. Alethio’s platform captures block data in real time and presents the information on easy-to-use dashboards, according to Finance Magnates’ report.
Other ways to monetize DApps include collecting some of the transaction fees – for example, CryptoKitties has been successful with the model of collecting 3.75% of all gas fees. Other methods include placing advertisements on the DApp or charging for premium services or subscriptions.
The 500 live DApps tracked by DappRadar currently have a shared user base of 12,000 people.
