We were recently reporting that Ethereum (ETH) was able to break two highs: the highest number of visitors and the highest transaction volume.
The first smart contract platform has been definitely showing its worth as it rose to the top in April, attracting over 263,000 visitors, and recording over $500 million in transactions.
Ethereum was the most popular smart contract platform in April, surpassing EOS not only in transaction volume, but also in the number of visitors.
Meanwhile, Cardano (ADA) was placed in the third place, having a low number of visitors that carried out high-value transactions.
Tron (TRX), on the other hand, had a high number of visitors who carried out low-value transactions.
These details suggest that the smart contract platforms are influenced only by the worth of transactions, and not the number of visitors.
