It has been reported that a hefty 17 of the top 25 most-used Tron DApps fall in the gambling category on DappRadar’s list of most popular Tron protocol-based DApps.

Likewise, Tron’s ecosystem posted a staggering $4.4 billion in volume in 2019, with its gambling DApps filtering approximately 89% of that money flow, as DappReview said in its 2019 DApp write-up by calling Tron’s decentralized application ecosystem, “Las Vegas on the blockchain.”
