All major and minor cryptocurrencies are trying every means possible to get headway to prominence in order to fast-tract their adoption. Binance (BNB), the 7th largest digital currency by market cap, announced it received an invitation from Liverpool Football club of England, but the exchange didn’t term it as partnership unlike Tron (TRX).
Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of Binance Exchange and creator of Binance (BNB), made the announcement via his twitter handle, saying he “received an invitation from Liverpool, very cool!” and captioned it with a video to prove that the invitation is real.

Liverpool FC is a big English football club that any organization or company of the world wants to associate with. So it is not strange if any cryptographic project such as Binance (BNB) would like to be recognized with the club due to its popularity, as such recognition is expected to boost its chances of being adopted globally.
The news met majority of all Binance (BNB) followers in good faith, as the tweet accumulated over 270 comments, 462 retweets, 3,200 likes and 81,200 video views at press time.
Meanwhile, Justin Sun, the founder of Tron (TRX) also received a similar message from Liverpool Football Club about two days ago, but was quick to tag it a partnership.
In his tweet, Tron (TRX) expressed his profound gratitude for the innovative invitation from Liverpool FC, showing how elated he’s with the purported partnership.
Justin Sun said: “Thank you for the unique and innovative invitation, Liverpool! I am impressed and I’m looking forward to exploring this #TRON new partnership together!”

The message went viral on social media and crypto space, giving a lot of cryptocurrency enthusiasts especially the investors on Tron (TRX) network reasons to rejoice because the invitation was seen as a means of garnering trust that all cryptocurrencies can leverage on.
However, there has been series of skepticism over the partnership as Liverpool FC failed to acknowledge the collaboration.
Was Tron (TRX) Right about its Rumoured Partnership?
As incredulity grows for the alleged Liverpool partnership especially due to a previous overhyped deals like the baidu purported alliance, a twitterati, averred that he does not hope to hear any positive news about the validation of Tron –liverpool partnership, adding that it must have been reported as a FUD to boost Tron (TRX) value in the market.
Unfortunately, never going to hear any positive news in regards to validating @justinsuntron and his Liverpool partnership announcement due to this because the current market is only fixated on smearing and providing new FUD, never admitting their mistakes.

Another member of the crypto community on twitter tagged the update a mere invitation, hoping that it would help boost cryptos market value.

The Final Verdict
Binance (BNB) failed to call the lookalike deal a partnership, but rather flagged it an invitation. Secondly, the spokesperson of Liverpool FC denied the alliance in a conversation with Decrypt;
“Liverpool Football Club has confirmed that it does not have a partnership with Tron.”
Although it is clear that Justin Sun is a brisk proponent propelling Tron (TRX) in the blockchain space, but based on the fact, it is clear that the CEO is only trying to create an artificial pump in price for its crypto coin through the acclaimed collaboration.
