TRON Continues to Push Updates and Partnerships
TRON is regarded as one of the top blockchain projects within the crypto community with a vast userbase across the world. The platform which aims to build an ecosystem for the development of D’Apps and promotion of blockchain solutions has been at the forefront of the ecosystem with major milestones since its launch in 2017.
The acquisition of BitTorrent in 2018 has seen the platform become a major player in the p-2-p file transfer sector. In addition, the recent acquisition of Steem is yet another great potential for the TRON ecosystem.
Although the acquisition came without opposition, Sun wrestled control of the Steem platform with some existing developers on the platform. However, Justin Sun said he only meant good (decentralization) for the platform and plans have begun to integrate new features.
It is expected that a total of around 20 million users could be migrated from Steem to the TRON ecosystem. This will be a huge development for the blockchain network.
In terms of position in the market, TRON has witnessed setbacks lately. After rising to as far as reaching the top 10 most important coins in the ecosystem, Tron is now ranked the 16th largest cryptocurrency by market cap. As at the time of publication, TRX is priced at $0.011482 with the token trading in the red for the last 24 hours.
