Founded in 2018, Lithuania-based DappRadar analyzes activity and other metrics for decentralized applications.
Decentralized applications (dapps) are applications that run on peer-to-peer computer networks, with open source code and deployed via blockchain. DappRadar tracks over 2,900 dapps across multiple blockchains, including Ethereum, EOS, and TRON, ranked by specific metrics such as daily users, daily volume and more with plans to expand to others. They filter through dapp data, remove fake and irrelevant activity and provides actionable market intelligence.
In 2019 its team raised €2 million in a seed funding round led by Naspers Ventures, Blockchain.com Ventures and Angel Invest Berlin.
