Tron dApp network seems to be infected by the dApp bots, which inflate the usage statistics artificially. A new startup AnChain aims to uncover the dApp bots.
During the first quarter of 2019, the startup surveyed the top ten gambling dApps of TRON and found that an enormous number of bots are present there. Around thirty-one percent (31%) of the surveyed accounts and nineteen-percent (19%) of the transactions were driven by the bots. This accounts for a massive two hundred and seventy million dollars ($207M) of dApp volume.
TRON dApp network not alone
For the critics of TRON, they might be tempted to report about the bot-driven Twitter traffic on the Twitter handle of TRON. However, AnChain is not highlighting any specific blockchain.
The startup previously revealed that about fifty-one percent (50%) of the surveyed accounts and seventy-five percent (75%) of transactions of EOS were bots-driven. The company is planning to examine Ethereum very soon.
The main goal of AnChain is the promotion of better data and ensuring transparency on all the blockchains. Although the firm makes suggestions and recommendations for the whole blockchain industry, however; it particularly focuses on the ratings sites. As per the AnChain report, detecting a bot in the blockchain is quite challenging.
As the addresses of blockchain can be generated rapidly, thereby, keeping a record of the static blacklist is of no use. Moreover, it is quite tricky to distinguish a bot from humans, especially when they tend to behave in complex ways. Hence, rule-based detection of bots is not effective.

Bitfinex announces successful BTT airdrop to wallets holding Tron
Bitfinex announced on Twitter that the BTT airdrop had been completed successfully and that all participants had received token relative to their TRX holdings.
The airdrop, which had been announced back in February this year, gave out BTT tokens for TRX holdings on supported exchanges in a 0.11:1 ratio (0.11 BTT per TRX held). This means that for every $1000 worth of TRX tokens held, the wallet will be eligible to receive around $5 worth of BTT.
However, the amount of BTT distributed to TRX holders is also scheduled to gradually increase over time, by 0.1% per year, till they year 2025, after which the program will be discontinued.
Though initially there had been no restriction to how much TRX had to be held, after the first two airdrops TRON announced that only wallets holding at least 100 TRX would be eligible to receive BTT. An initial snapshot had been taken when the TRON block height reached 6.6 million and the first airdrop had distributed 1.1% of the total BTT supply. By 2025, this percentage should increase to 1.7%.
Also, in order to reward long-term TRX holders, BitTorrent will airdrop an extra 99.99 billion BTT (~$44 million), which corresponds to 10% of the total supply.}
Tron SR rankings shuffled as Binance unfreezes massive amounts of TRX
One of Tron’s primary beneficiaries has been Binance, and according to Misha Lederman, a famous Tron enthusiast, there seems to be something brewing between the two.
Tron and its Chief Executive Officer Justin Sun have been known to create news in the cryptocurrency space with the sheer number of updates and developments from the company’s roster. This news making ability has also been helped along by several partnerships and tie-ups that have taken the company to new heights.
One of Tron’s primary beneficiaries has been the Changpeng Zhao led Binance, and according to Misha Lederman, a famous Tron enthusiast, there seems to be something brewing between the two. Lederman’s latest tweet read:
“Interesting development in #TRON ecosystem:
@Binance seems to have unfrozen 11.9 billion TRX, previously voted for #Binance in the SR elections. That would make @SesameseedOrg 1st, @BitGuild 2nd, @trxdream 3rd & @BeatzCoin
4th in the SR ranking. @cz_binance, care to comment😉?”
During the vote periods, Sesameseed had 494,177,142 votes while BitGuild, Tron-ONE, and BeatZCoin had 423.372 million, 410.206 million and 368.471 million votes respectively. The reason for the switch remains unknown, but many users in the space have speculated as to what the reasons may be. Cryptoworld, a cryptocurrency enthusiast, replied to Lederman’s tweet by saying:
“The reason is simple, if Binance remains SR with + 50%, the SEC can consider that TRON is not decentralized enough, and it could become a security, which nobody wants here.”
Some users have also speculated that Binance didn’t actually have to free the 12 bullion because they were able to vote without affecting the liquidity of the exchange. Binance had made waves when Tron had announced that the exchange had become its top Super Representative while it added TRX staking support. This September 30 development had occurred after the cryptocurrency exchange acquired over 12 billion votes in the Super Representative elections.
Binance was also in the news recently when it added an XRP pegged coin to its fold. The XRP-BF2 will be the new token that users will be able to utilize for instant swapping with no hiccups. Binance has stated that it has minted a whopping 10 million XRP-BF2 for the DEX.
