We have recently seen a surge of dApp activity on the EOS network. For example, the decentralised gambling website EOSMax has seen over $18 million worth of bets placed since it launched, and had 833 users in just the past 24 hours – according to data from dApp radar.
EOSMax is a gambling application where users can play casino games like virtual slot machines and dice games on the blockchain. Of course, as with most blockchain-based games, all results can be verified, and with EOSMax, 100% of all game profit is distributed to holders of the platform’s native MAX token.
Another very popular dApp on the EOS blockchain is EOS Dice. Over the last couple of months, the application has consistently seen over 2,000 daily users and between $5-10 million in transaction volume.
