Bots are taking over – at least when talking about gambling-related decentralized apps which are abundant on the Tron’s network, it’s true.
A recent study by analytics startup AnChain reveals that about 31% of the accounts on the top ten gambling-related Dapps on Tron’s network were bot-driven. Moreover, about 19 percent of transactions were also controlled by bots.
The firm surveyed TRON’s top ten gambling dApps during the Q1 of 2019. It estimated that about $270 million of dApp volume is operated by bots.
Decentralized gambling apps on Tron’s Network are also putting several customers at risk. Earlier in the year,
Doo Tron a gambling Dapp based on the Tron network, disappeared in thin air with several players left with useless tokens.
According to the estimates over 59 million DOO tokens owned by 1,204 investors, were still in circulation when the platform just disappeared.
The number of decentralized gambling applications has risen in the past year, and the TRON network is the preferred choice of developers. Over 50% of the DAPPS on the Tron’s Blockchain is related to DAPP’s.
