Tron-based USDT Stablecoin gets Listed on Three Major Crypto Exchanges: Huobi, OKEx and Gate.io

Published

on

Tron Foundation has announced a partnership with Tether (USDT) to create a new stablecoin. The introduction of USDT to the Tron network will make transaction free and swift. Also, it will increase the use cases for Tether.

Justin Sun, CEO of the TRON Foundation, believes that working with Tether will boost their goal of increasing the popularity of the Tron blockchain.

`So far, three leading crypto trading platforms have confirmed their support for Tron-based USDT. The three are – Huobi Global, which is based in Singapore, OKEx, which is based in Malta, and Gate.io.

The news about the Tron-based USDT was first announced at the begging of this month. The coin is based on Tron blockchain’s TRC 20 protocol. Seen as an improvement to the standard USDT, the coin follows the standards maintained on the Tron blockchain will be compatible with all DApps and protocols on the network.

Both Huobi and OKEx exchanges said that the decision to list the ‘improved’ USDT was inspired by their clients’ demand for the introduction of stablecoins. The addition of USDT-Tron comes after the two platforms had already introduced other versions of USDT, namely USDT-Omni, which is based on the Bitcoin protocol, and the USDT-ERC-20, which is based by the Ethereum protocol.

Additionally, the TRON Foundation has launched an exclusive incentive program for holders on the Tron-based USDT. Investors will receive 20% as the annual percentage rate for holding the digital currency. This rate is much higher than that of its closest rival, USDT-Omni. Moreover, USDT-Tron holders will get extra tokens for a period spanning 100 days.

Earlier this year, the introduction of the Tron DApp program and the launch of the BitTorrent Token caused an increase in the price of TRX. However, the value of cryptocurrency has since suffered the effects of the bear market.

Still, TRX averages higher transaction volumes than the two other major DApp platforms, Ethereum and EOS.

Tron (TRX) Posts New Block Height Best with Justin Sun Advocating for Mainstream Adoption

Published

on

Justin Sun, the CEO of Tron (TRX), has been a very powerful force in the crypto marketlately. He has been leading a movement to push crypto forward and to reach mainstream adoption. In order to make this happen, he is making several upgrades on the Tron network that will lead the company into becoming a better product and to have partnerships with several other companies.

In fact, the Tron Foundation is set to help the world to finally reach the so-called Web 4.0, which is said to be the future of the internet. The company has two strong competitors, though, EOS and Ethereum (ETH), which are all competing for the place as the main king of the decentralized platforms together with Bitcoin (which is more focused on crypto transactions).

Now, Justin Sun has used social media in order to tell the community that Tron has reached a new block height and that the company has exceeded 8.6 million blocks. The number was reached using TronScan, a tool that helps users to determine the block height on the Tron network.

Sun affirmed that Tron is keeping up with its efforts to create a more decentralized internet. According to him, Tron is an important road to reach major mainstream adoption, which will be important both for the token and for the world as well, as it needs companies which are focused on using the blockchain to solve problems.

Tron has just recently jumped from the block height 8 million to 8,614,366 now. In only 20 days, the token was able to mine over 600 thousand blocks. This means that the network is increasing its size very quickly and that Tron is finally seeing some well-deserved adoption around the world. At the moment, the network also has 2.6 million accounts and 1193 online nodes.

Not everybody was so impressed with Tron, though. Some crypto enthusiasts on social media complained that the internet is effectively a single network and that it simply cannot be decentralized because of that, so he said that Tron should strive for a more decentralized notion that the Web 4.0.

In any case, what is clear to us is that Tron is faring very well this year and that the company has plenty of chances of consolidating its presence in the future.

On Tuesday, April 23, the founder of the Tron Foundation wrote on Twitter that Tron has received an official invitation from Liverpool Football Club (LFC) regarding an official partnership.

Justin Sun has again made the community feel intrigued.

Is Tron entering the global sports industry?

To his announcement on Twitter, Justin Sun has attached a promo video by LFC where the logos of the two future partners are shown together.

This could mean anything, but Justin Sun has refused to provide any details so far, promising to do that later on.

As per Sun, the invitation to make a partnership was initiated by the football club, not Tron. Still, he sounds enthusiastic and, judging by the comment thread, seems to make the Tron community feel the same.

Many are left bewildered by what is going to happen between these two giants of such different global industries.

A prominent Tron supporter, Misha Lederman, has assumed that the multi hundred million audience of LFC could be a great addition to the current user base of BitTorrent and Tron.

Tron community tries to find out the nuances

Many expressed their doubts, though, or started to make proposals of partnering with Tron as well.

Crypto and the global football industry

Last time the global community of crypto enthusiasts had an excuse to get connected with football was the global championship that took place in Russia last year.

Back then, many hotels and hostels in Moscow, St. Petersburg and other major cities accepted Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies for room booking and other services. Crypto was accepted in numerous pubs and even taxi drivers took it from foreign customers.
