DappRadar: The World’s Dapp Store

April 23, 2023


In recent years, the industry of Web3 decentralised applications (dApps) has exploded, reaching a tipping point of mass adoption with millions of users and hundreds of billions of dollars locked up in DeFi protocols. DappRadar pioneered reliable on-chain metrics and became the primary dApp discovery destination. DappRadar is evolving into the World's Dapp Store and introducing the RADAR token to reward user participation and contributions.

DappRadar is a community-owned gateway into Web3 and DeFi, with the ambition to be owned by millions and used by billions. The platform tracks over 12,000 dApps across various chains, including Ethereum, EOS, TRON, ONT, ThunderCore, WAX, Steem, Hive, BNB Chain, Polygon and Flow. With half a million monthly active users, DappRadar is a comprehensive resource for anyone interested in the blockchain industry.

One of the most impressive features of DappRadar is its breadth of information. The platform offers rankings, portfolio tracking, NFT tracking, alerts for airdrops, statistics and information about users and transaction volume. The DappRadar website also has a section dedicated to company news and product updates, and a blog that covers things around the industry and pulls in extra information from other publications.
