The Battle for DApps Between EOS and Ethereum




The EOS Mainnet went live on the 2nd of June amidst a few hiccups here and there. However, this has not prevented the platform from attracting several Decentralized Applications. The total number of DApps on the EOS mainnet currently number 229. Out of these number, 78 are live, 99 in development, 16 in their Beta versions and 18 are in the concept phase. So, we have 229 DApps on a platform that is roughly 3 months old.

This rapid expansion on DApps being built on the EOS platform has prompted one Redditor by the name of Babble9753 to predict that EOS DApps will surpass those on the Ethereum network in number by the first quarter of 2019. His exact comments were as follows:

“There are 1,781 DAPPS on ETH with 10k total daily users. I think there are already over 200 DAPPs being built on EOS and Steem which was built by Daniel Larimer I think often has more daily users than all ETH DAPPs combined and he is building something similar on EOS. When do you think EOS will pass ETH in terms of total active DAPPs and daily users? I think by the end of Q1 next year.”

Analyzing the number of DApps on the Ethereum network, we find that they are 1,781 as stated, and have taken 3 years to get this number – given the fact that the Ethereum network was launched on 30th July 2015. This is an average of 594 new DApps per year.

With EOS having 229 in 3 months, if numbers are to go by, the platform will have approximately 535 DApps by the beginning of January next year. This is without factoring in the exponential rate of growth of the blockchain industry as well as the hype and excitement surrounding the EOS platform. Once we factor this into the equation, it is highly probable that the DApps on the EOS platform will eclipse those of Ethereum by mid next year.

Another factor to consider is the number of DApps migrating from the Ethereum platform to that of EOS. One reason for this migration could be the idea that EOS is a faster more efficient platform to create DApps on as well as a more secure network. There is also the added decentralization evident on the EOS platform that is almost non-existent on that of Ethereum. Only time will tell if the DApps on the EOS platform will surpass those of Ethereum by next year.

In conclusion, with the EOS platform gaining popularity, it is one more reason to be bullish about the coin in the crypto markets. We even have the Chinese government constantly ranking EOS higher than Ethereum on its monthly blockchain ratings. This is a clear indicator of blockchain superiority.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange



Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //

Xeno Holdings Limited ( ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.

Xeno NFT Hub ( ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.

The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.

NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.

NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…

Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?



2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for.  While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory.  When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion.  But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.

I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness.  Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion.  Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special.  Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.

Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology

It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.  Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different.  Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
