Following the significant increase in global blockchain application projects in the last month, the number of new projects in the blockchain application in May showed a slight correction.
According to the incomplete statistics of the Inter-Chain Pulse Institute, in May 2019, the number of blockchain application projects in the world reached 84, a decrease of 8.7% from March.
China remains the country with the largest number of blockchain application projects. Of the 84 applications disclosed in May, 37 were in China, accounting for about 44%. In the United States, only six applications were disclosed in May, a decrease of 53.8% from the previous month.
