TRON appears to be prevailing in the decentralized application (Dapp) war as the project's leader, Justin Sun, exalts his brainchild platform for outpacing EOS.
According to statistics from Dapp analytics firm, Dapp Review, Tron has reached a cumulative total of 669 Dapps, edging out its closest competitor, EOS, by just one Dapp for the first time in their competitive history.
According to @dapp_review, the total number of #TRON #Dapps reached 669 on Jan 07, 2020. It has surpassed the number of #EOS Dapps(668) for the first time. #TRON ecosystem is growing at a steady pace, we welcome more users and developers to join us. #TRX $TRX pic.twitter.com/rwOiXbOZSd— Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) January 8, 2020
While Ethereum still holds the throne with a head and shoulders lead of 2,152 Dapps, Sun remained ecstatic over the relatively small victory:

Indeed, it seems the entire Dapp industry is undergoing a growth spurt. According to Dappreview's 2019 market report, nearly 2,000 new decentralized applications were created throughout the year, and on-chain transactions surpassed a massive $23 billion.
Claiming over $4.4 billion of that total transaction volume was TRON, most of which came from the platform's plethora of gambling Dapps.
However, one of the chief takeaways was that ETH's overall position as market leader is still firmly cemented. Currently, ETH almost doubles TRON's active user ship 989,000, with 1.82 million of its own.
Moreover, Ethereum provided 688 new Dapps in 2019, a figure higher than both TRON and EOS's total number of Dapps, proving that Ethereum still has what it takes to attract developers.
