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.
