Considering how Bitcoin is the world's leading cryptocurrency, one would expect to see its blockchain grow the fastest. That is not necessarily the case, although an addition of 87MB is not all that bad, all things considered. It is a rather steep amount, though, as Bitcoin's massive blockchain size has been well-documented in the past.
No one is really surprised to see Ethereum's blockchain growing the fastest of them all right now. This is partially thanks to the native smart contracts, dApps, and ICO token sales taking place. Adding 166MB to the blockchain on a daily basis is rather worrisome, though, but it seems some of those problems will be solved in future iterations of the Ethereum ecosystem accordingly.
