Tron Gaining The Most (Relative) Ground
DappRadar has shown that the transaction volumes for Tron had reached its highest point of the year in Q3, 2020. With this impressive increase in transaction volume, Tron had even managed to put a dent in its competitor, Ethereum.
The report explained that TRON had almost no activity within the DeFi space in 2019. However, with new offers surging in during Q3 2020, the protocol has managed to make a dent within Ethereum’s overall dominance

The report explained that the volume of dApps within the DeFi ecosystem skyrocketed within Q3 2020. Back in Q2 2020, only three DeFi dApps were available on Tron. However, that number shot up to 27 by the end of Q3, according to DappRadar.
As for the highest-ever daily wallet activity for Q3 in terms of the DeFi ecosystem, that occurred in September of 2020. DappRader recorded an increase of 1,896% for Q3 2020, when one compares it to Q2 2020.

TRX Price Highs Recorded For Q3
Alongside this, DappRader highlighted how the price of Tron (TRX) had seen an incredible growth, going up by 64% in the third quarter. One of the key factors for this growth in price, is regarding the evolution of the token, as well as its overall popularity within the DeFi industry.
