Last week I came across this article that talked about dapps and how little they are used.
In it, the analysis was of EOS and ETH. The conclusion was there are only a handful of apps on either blockchain that have more than 300 users. For EOS, this might be acceptable since it is a blockchain that is only a few months old. Ethereum is a blockchain with a reputation for creating dapps. The problem is, evidently, that nobody is using them.
STEEM has a number of applications that top this number yet it is overlooked by the masses. That is okay, it will not be a secret much longer.
The reason why I singled @actifit is because it is an application that is specialized. By that, I mean it is not a general posting application like many on STEEM.
Before getting into that, let us look at some of the rankings.
For the month of August @actifit ranked 16th. This was up 8 spots.
However, for the past 7 days, the application moved into the top 10.
Looking at all the applications that rank ahead of @actifit, all of them exist for the purpose of posting to the STEEM blockchain. This contrasts this application which was created to track movements with the posting to STEEM used as a verification method.
In the past 7 days 436 accounts posted using the application, more than the 300 level mentioned in the article about dapps. They totaled 1634 posts which would far eclipse the August total of 4597 since that is on pace to do over 6,500 in a month.
Of course, these numbers are before the introduction of the IOS version which should increase the amount of users.
Here again, we see an application outperforming those on Ethereum in under a couple months. @actifit is relatively new yet surpassed most of what is on the other blockchain.
This is just another reason to be so optimistic about STEEM. Here is an example of how quickly the traffic on STEEM passes the other blockchains. STEEM is one of the few that has consistent activity with applications that are being used by people.
Here are two posts related to this topic and provided the charts.
