There are over 100 live Dapps on the EOS mainnet, and that number is growing EVERY DAY.
The EOSIO software was developed by block.one CTO Dan Larimer with the goal of creating a functional base software that apps could be built upon. Five months after the EOSIO mainnet launch, it’s safe to say that Larimer has accomplished his goal.
State of the Dapps (https://www.stateofthedapps.com) is a website that measures the activity of Dapps on EOS. We will be using the data from State of the Dapps as DappRadar has already been extensively covered.
State of the Dapps has 7 general categories for Dapps and their state development:
LIVE - 43 DAPPS BETA - 6 DAPPS PROTOTYPE - 3 DAPPS CONCEPT - 3 DAPPS WIP - 2 DAPPS ABANDONED - 1 DAPP
State of the Dapps has 12 categorizations for DAPPS:
Gambling - 24 DAPPS Social - 11 DAPPS Exchanges - 9 DAPPS Games - 6 DAPPS Media - 4 DAPPS Security - 4 DAPPS Property - 2 DAPPS Finance - 3 DAPPS Development - 3 DAPPS Storage - 2 DAPPS Wallet - 2 DAPPS Property - 2 DAPPS
Categories are added as needed.
Of the 43 DAPPS listed as live on State of the Dapps, most of the dapps fall under the gambling category. This is not surprising as the speed and functionality of the EOSIO software makes gambling online easy. And because it is decentralized, the trustless system helps to ensure that funds are deposited per smart contracts as they are supposed to be.
Top 10 Dapps on State of the Dapps on the EOS Platform:
There is a healthy mix of dapp categories currently dominating the top 10 spots according to State of the Dapps, with gambling DAPPS having the slight edge.

POINT OF INTEREST - PIXEL MASTER CANVAS COMES TO AN END
On October 28th, 2018 the PIXELMASTER.IO canvas ended, thus distributing the 22,272 EOS to over 300 lucky players. The final pot that was distributed was worth roughly 120,000 USD and marked the end of the top performing DAPP. 2,736,238 pixels were drawn by community members, and over 163,000 EOS were committed to the canvas. This means that the canvas was worth roughly 880,000 USD.
The FOMO game, although successful, dealt with its fair share of controversy. The game was originally going to be launched by the BP team EOS Asia, but, ,due to legal concerns, was handed over to the community. The self styled “Pixel Master” launched the game using EOS Asia’s open source code, and the game experienced immediate success. Like many FOMO games, eventually the hype died down and the community looked for solutions. Block.one CTO Dan Larimer shared ideas on how to save the game, and the Pixelmaster team implemented some of Dan’s ideas which brought the game back to life. Since the game ended the Pixelmaster has been tight lipped, thanking the community for playing the game, but releasing no details on when the new canvas will be released.
