Tron Dapp Status: Additions & Exit
In the Dapp ecosystem, Tron registered a gradual growth as its number of smart contracts reached 779. From last week, Tron also reported an increase of about 10,000 in its daily active users that took its total count to 50,000. 4 new games also went online this week while 24 hours transactions noted a 10 percent rise versus last week.
Among its existing Dapps, Tron highlighted three of its dapps viz. Smart Town, Stake Them All, and TradeHome in the user experience report. TradeHome is a decentralized exchange based on the Tron ecosystem that has a low threshold for the token listing while supporting fast trading pair listing.
Smart Town is a 3D shooting game that requires players to spend TRX within the game to start the game, move and to attack enemies while Stake Them All allows users to win TRX rewards as per the difficulty levels.
However, not all’s good as a Tron gambling dapp called DooTron seemed to have made an exit scam as alleged by the community. Just like most of the Tron casinos and many of EOS-based ones do, players earn a casino-centric token for every bet they place.
Just before its disappearance, DooTron launched its second game shoot and another token. A total of more than 59 million DOO were mined over the casino’s life that currently has 1204 holders. Out of these 12 million are frozen while SHOOT, being newer has just over 1.4 million frozen.
Both the tokens were delisted from one of the few exchanges they are listed on. Kiwidex.io stated that it will release DOO / TRX, SHOOT/TRX transaction pair as
“DooTron has encountered operational-related investigations, it will stop all social media, websites and other activities.”
