According to the Coinmetrics analytical resource, EOS has become the absolute leader in terms of transaction volume.

Tron blockchain activity is approx twice lower than EOS. The volume of Ethereum transactions is about 11 times smaller than that of EOS. Also note that XRP is slightly higher than bitcoin in this parameter.

CoinDesk analyst Peter Ryan emphasizes that transactional activity in smart contract platforms is usually much higher than that of cryptocurrencies, which mainly function as a means of preserving value.
