Ethereum's blockchain platform is currently one of the industry's leading players with over 2,000 dApps powered by the ecosystem. Ethereum also has its joint effort called the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance [EEA]. The alliance has all the big names involved, including JP Morgan Chase, Infosys, Microsoft, Shell, Deloitte, Ledger, Bancor, ConsenSys and Smart Valor.

Founder and CEO of the Tron Foundation, Justin Sun, has also begun to compete with Ethereum. In fact, Sun also asked his followers to abandon Ethereum's blockchain and move to Tron to build dApps. In a recent tweet, he has published:

"Yes! Please stop the implementation of d-app on Ethereum and immediately migrate to the #TRON network! We are 100 times faster than #ETH and are fully compatible with #ethereum.We guarantee 100% better experience user! "

However, Ethereum's dominance in the adoption of the blockchain has not yet been broken. Even Tron, who is currently competing with Ethereum, was initially supported by his blockchain until his migration at the start of this year.
