Valentine’s Day News: Could it be Steemit Acquisition?
Not long, rumors were rife that TRON Foundation was planning to acquire Steemit, a blockchain-oriented content distribution platform allowing users to upload and store contents on chain to prevent alteration.
The rumor succeeded Justin Sun’s investment into Poloniex, a decision branded by the entrepreneur as rejig for the sinking crypto exchange. The news was reported by NewsLogical and followed with the purchase of Tron largest DEX, TRX Market, by Poloniex.
A Chinese news platform which spearheaded the widespread rumor said Tron was planning to add the block chain content platform Steemit into its family.
The rumors were a result of Justin Sun’s hint of a possible partnership. However, a partnership with KuCoin-incubated POOL-X PoS Mining pool cushioned the effect of the widespread rumor.
Despite the much-welcomed collaboration, there was no clear indication that it was the partnership Justin Sun earlier hinted the TRON community about.
With that, Mars Finance’ new agency reported that Justin Sun said he completed two mergers and acquisition.
If Justin is introducing Steemit, the acquisition is a great expansion for the TRON ecosystem.
The acquisition of Steemit by Justin Sun had been debunked by Nadav Dakner, CEO of InboundJunction & Marketacross, a PR and media group representing TRON and other top crypto projects like Binance, Huobi,, Qtum, eToro among others.
Dakner told NewsLogical that the news was concocted, claiming that TRON did not have the mind to acquire Steemit.
TRON acquires CoinPlay
TRON Foundation in the past acquired the First Global Blockchain App Store, CoinPlay. The announcement was made by Justin Sun in March 2019. This acquisition is one of the many the TRON foundation perfected in 2019.
“Fellow #Tronics: I’m proud to officially announce that #TRON has successfully acquired CoinPlay. From now on, @CoinPlayShop will become part of TRON ecosystem, together with #BitTorrent, making TRON one of the largest decentralized ecosystems in the world,” Sun said.
What do you think the announcement could be? A penny for your thought!
