EOS blockchain activity surpasses all other tracked projects combined
Earlier today, DAPP development project EOS topped the leaderboard on blockchain activity tracker Block’tivity, which includes any and all blockchain operations, not just wallet-to-wallet crypto transactions.Tweet this
Earlier today, crypto enthusiast Chaney Moore Tweeted that EOS, a blockchain for DAPP development, had topped the leaderboard on blockchain activity tracker Block’tivity with a total activity score greater than all 14 other projects combined.

The achievement was quickly shared on Reddit, but the EOS blockchain’s notable activity volume has largely flown under-the-radar within broader crypto circles.
Importantly, Block’tivity doesn’t just track transactions between two wallets sending and receiving crypto. Instead, they consider “overall activity,” which includes any and all blockchain operations. Here’s what they say on their site:
“Blockchains have evolved and you can now do a variety of operations such as create assets, create, delete or fill an order and so on. Operations works like transactions, they need an allocated space on blocks and confirmation time before being accepted by the network.”
No matter how the activity is counted, it’s impressive that the EOS blockchain has more operations than all of the other 14 tracked projects combined, including some prominent players in the top-10 including Ethereum, Bitcoin, Litecoin, along with BitShares, Steem, Komodo, Dogecoin and more.
Beyond their top-rated blockchain activity, EOS also topped the list in a recent GitHub audit of 200 blockchain projects by DPRating, published on July 23, 2018.

DPRating considers four aspects of the projects GitHub repo, all of which contribute between zero and one point to the overall score. The factors are popularity (watch, star, fork), the number of contributors, release frequency, and type of commit.
Meanwhile, back to Block’tivity, if you’re a history buff, you’ll enjoy these screengrabs of EOS moving up the ranks over the past few days.
Here’s EOS two days ago at 1,341,798 daily operations, with an activity rank of #3 on Block’tivity:

And here, just a short time later, is EOS at 4,135,291 daily operations, with an activity rank of #2:

Notably, cryptocurrency serial entrepreneur Dan Larimer founded ALL THREE of the projects fighting for the #1 spot on Block’tivity. Larimer created BitShares in 2013, left to start Steemit in 2016, and is now Chief Technology Officer at Block.one.
Block.one first offered EOS tokens in 2017 but handed over the project to the community’s 21 elected block producers on June 14, 2018.
It’s hard to say if EOS will stick around atop these leaderboards, or if another project like Steem or BTS can come from behind to topple them, but the scalable architecture and faster transaction times have some folks calling EOS an “ETH killer.”
