Six months ago in our 9 Blockchains to Watch in 2020 and Why we mentioned WAX:
“With the successful debut of its WAX Cloud Wallet to simplify the user onboarding process, WAX has gained over 400,000 mainnet accounts opened within a month since its launch. Will WAX become the largest blockchain for games in 2020?”
WAX, has finished its integration and is now officially listed on Dapp.com as the 16th blockchain. 15 WAX dapps are listed and tracked via Dapp.com/dapps/WAX. Additional integration between Dapp.com and WAX will be done to further facilitate WAX’s ecosystem in the next stage.
