Decentralized applications (DApps) have entered several industries, including finance, gaming, social media, and e-commerce. They are popular among Web 3.0 enthusiasts and blockchain developers, and several projects launched in 2022. However, the constantly evolving trend means we get newer ones as the days pass.
Some DApps have survived over time, evolving with new features and functionalities. You’ve come to the perfect spot if you want to know what’s at the top of the decentralized applications industry. We’ve rounded up the top ten based on DappRadar, with data pulled on March 20 over seven days.
These Dapps cut across several industries, and you’ll be surprised at those that top the list. We’ll rank in ascending order, saving the best for last. So, here are the top ten Dapps in March 2023.
Here are the most notable decentralized applications in the blockchain industry:
What began as Project Galaxy has become the most expansive credential data network for Web 3.0 developers. We know how essential credentials are to identity verification and authentication. Before now, the government and financial institutions held this information in secure databases.
Galxe devised a clever way for developers, no matter where they are. The credential data network is now open-source and collaborative. So, consider Galxe as the curator for this vast amount of data.
As of this writing, this decentralized application has over 59 million users and has powered over 17,000 campaigns. For more context, here are the assets and active wallet addresses linked to them:
It was only a while before a gaming platform broke into the top ten. Iskra is an all-in-one blockchain gaming platform for players and developers. Also, gamers can create communities for their favorite blockchain games.
ISK is the native currency of the Iskra ecosystem and provides governing powers. Players can mint non-fungible tokens and trade them outside the games. In addition, the decentralized application rewards developers.
Iskra pushed into the top ten Dapps in the blockchain gaming industry a few weeks ago. It achieved the feat after rolling out crucial features like governance staking. The platform hopes to achieve complete decentralization in ten years, but we’ll see how that goes.
In the meantime, here are some essential statistics:
NFT sales from January 15 to February 15, 2023, reached 12.4 thousand, which shows the fighting spirit of the industry. NFT developers are familiar with SimpleAssets and dGoods in the Eosio space. However, they have limitations, like the cost of RAM for users.
Atomic Assets removes RAM costs for users, enabling everyday people who aren’t blockchain enthusiasts to interact freely. Also, it provides trading for the users and developers. There is asset backing with the native token of the creator’s network, EOS or WAX.
This decentralized application is still growing, and new features will drop as the days turn into months. NFT games will drop once the platform has enough features to support them.
This decentralized wallet supports over 250,000 tokens and 220,000+ NFTs. It has a base of 8 million users, with thousands of unique active wallets added in the past seven days. In addition, it allows cross-chain trading.
Ethereum, BNB Chain, Solana, and Polkadot are popular blockchains in the Bitkeep Swap. The platform has 27 built-in swap protocols and seven cross-chain bridges. We can trace its roots to Singapore in 2018, but it is available in over 160 countries today.
Bitkeep Swap has a monthly swap volume of over a billion dollars and doesn’t require gas fees in the token. If you want, you can access other Dapps via its Dapp browser.
You’ll find Splinterlands visually familiar if you’ve played Pokemon cards or World of Warcraft. It is a card game, undoubtedly, but one infused with Web 3.0 characteristics. So, what can you do with this decentralized application?
Splinterlands is based on NFTs, but it is a trading card game on the Hive blockchain. Players use their collectible cards to compete in strategic matches. Then, they can trade them on decentralized marketplaces.
This Dapp is working on the Splinterlands DAO for its ecosystem expansion. That’ll bring more capabilities to the decentralized application.
We are approaching the decentralized application that gained the most unique active wallet addresses. In fifth place is Hooked, a platform that allows Web 3.0 novices to earn and own cryptocurrencies. It is built on the BNB chain, providing learn and earn functionalities to users.
The educational approach includes PoWs, referrals, wallets, NFTs, and quiz-to-earn. Hooked launched Wild Cash not long ago to embody these features into a fun-to-use platform. The platform has seen success, with active users reaching 2.5 million.
Users can earn Hooked Gold tokens, swap them for BUSD, and transfer them to another crypto wallet. Also, you don’t need any Web 3.0 skills to use the platform.
Uniswap has come a long way since the launch of its V1 in 2018. The protocol launched its most potent version, Uniswap V3, a year after it launched V2. Furthermore, its ecosystem has expanded to include several decentralized financial services.
This Ethereum-based protocol has features for trading and liquidity reserves. It gives LPs several capabilities, from multiple fee tiers and granular control over price ranges to exposure increase and 4,000x capital efficiency. In addition, the exchange has crossed the one trillion dollar mark in trading volume with over 4,400 community delegates.
Uniswap is the developer’s dream with its concentrated liquidity. Here’s a look at its growth statistics in the past seven days:
The blockchain gaming industry was estimated at $4.6 billion in 2022, with a massive compound annual growth rate of 70.3%. That explains why games have dominated this list. Next on our list is Alien Worlds, a cross-chain NFT game on Ethereum, BNB Smart Chain, and WAX.
Alien Worlds is a decentralized metaverse game that allows players to play and earn. Trillium is the native token that gives players power in the Planet DAO. So, you can jump in, lease spacecraft for missions in the metaverse, discover NFTs, and explore missions.
The game has MetaMask integration to allow users to switch between BNB Smart Chain, Ethereum, and WAX. It also features communities for NFT drops and game creations.
You’d agree that creating a new identity when switching to a new DApp can be exhausting. The CyberConnect protocol takes care of that, giving identity sovereignty for adoption and network effects. So, you can create your profile on EVM-compatible blockchains to anchor your decentralized identities.
CyberConnect allows users to control their social graph, monetization channels, social data, and content. As a result, you can access several Dapps without creating a new network for each platform. The decentralized application has introduced several features, including private messaging, a fan club, etc.
And now, to the first decentralized application on our list, PancakeSwap, a popular DeFi. The swapping platform has over $1.2 billion in trading volume. Also, it has the highest user count for an automated market marker (AMM) on BSC.
The decentralized exchange deals primarily in BEP20 tokens with easy swap features. Still, there’s more you can do on the platform. A few mentions include trading, farming, staking, NFT rewards, the lottery, and initial farm offerings (IFOs).
PancakeSwap supports many crypto wallets, including MetaMask, and is easy to use. With MetaMask, you can deal with Bep-20 and ERC-20 tokens without trouble. Furthermore, transactions on the exchange are quick and low-cost.
We haven’t seen the last of decentralized applications. More will come, and this list will change according to the growth in the number of unique active wallet addresses. Notwithstanding, crypto exchanges, games, and social media-based platforms will continue to top the list.
Which decentralized applications will cross into the top ten in April? You may have suggestions, but keep a date with us to stay updated. We’ll keep an eye out to see which ones grow the fastest.
