The rankings are provided by China’s Center for Information and Industry Development (CCID).
The CCID first began ranking cryptocurrencies in May 2018. The newest edition is the 11th announcement from the agency.
DApp platform EOS has remained the number one blockchain since June 2018, however, BTC’s ranking has dropped from 13 to 15.
The tenth edition, released in February, was the first time dApp platform TRON made the list, shooting up the rankings to overtake Ethereum for second place.
EOS has previously held some controversy regarding their delegated proof-of-stake system.
Earlier this month, U.S. dollar pegged stablecoin Tether announced they will be introducing a new USDT update, launching as a TRC-20 token on the second place TRON blockchain.
Singaporean exchange Huobi Global, along Maltese exchange OKEx, have announced they will be supporting the new Tether update to TRON.
