In 2018, Ethereum dapps has $2.6 Billion worth transaction volume in 2018; EOS has $3.45B; TRON has $600M.

However, number of transactions on Ethereum is way less than EOS and TRON. Ethereum has a huge user base but TRON has a lot of incentives to offer and they have strong marketing support.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.


As my per my personal opinion:

Ethereum is a well-proven platform for standard DApps, most of ICO's and DAO's are successfully done in ETH. And the main net is launched 4 years back. If you want standard well proven and trusted consumer DApps, then better you can choose Eth. Trust of ETH is higher. And the community is very big you can get help quick.

Issues might be gas price, need to learn a new language..,etc.

EOS mainnet is new in the crypto world. EOS mainnet is down after launching 2 days. For more details refer

Some of the cryptos are offering prizes for dApps.

If you want to launch standard dApp better to choose well-proven protocols. Or if you want to validate your idea or lack of funds better to choose new tech and approach appropriate teams.

I am not in favor of one protocol, it's up to your business logic. Currently, blockchain still evolution, in the worst situation you should have backup plans like migration, stop apps. dApps can fail anywhere like from your logic, mining, protocol issue, or 51% attack, or other way chain attacked.


This is primarily opinion based, but considering how more and more blockchains are popped up, consider using some framework that allows you to switch between blockchains like cosmos or equivalent.
