Steemit Inc., the largest decentralized blockchain-based social media and blogging platform, announced a strategic partnership with TRON Foundation. TRON and Steemit’s development teams will immediately begin working together to bring Steemit and other Steem blockchain-based DApps to TRON blockchain and its community of over 20 million users, products, and services.
TRON is one of the largest decentralized ecosystems, providing fast network speed, high throughput stability, and scalability. This partnership continues the beat of TRON’s rhythm in partnering with top firms like Samsung, Poloniex, Opera, and DLive to provide a dynamic value proposition to its users, investors, and community members.
Steemit is offering a Reddit-alike service built on top of the Steem blockchain. As one of the largest DApps cross all the blockchains, Steemit also claims a thriving community of its own due to a growing number of DApps developed on the Steem blockchain with over 1 million users. Some popular real-world use cases on Steem blockchain include the Youtube alternative D.Tube, Instagram alternative APPICS, and fitness Dapp Actifit. Steemit was founded by Ned Scott and Dan Larimer in January 2016. Larimer led the engineering of Steemit’s earliest technology and later went on to lead the development of EOS, a highly visible blockchain protocol.
Together, TRON Foundation and Steemit Inc. will look to create further value for their users and to augment their advancements in decentralized technologies, including moving old STEEM token to a new TRON based STEEM token, giveaways to the existing TRX users with the new TRON based STEEM token, as well as a new accelerator program towards the developer community.Advertisement
This partnership further empowers TRON’s title as the blockchain industry’s leader in distributed ledger technology with over 800 Dapps now in its ecosystem.“We are very excited to welcome Steemit into the TRON ecosystem,” says Justin Sun, Founder of TRON and CEO of BitTorrent. “Together we will usher in a new era of decentralized social networking.”
“Steemit is the original conception of forums meeting cryptocurrency to achieve mass adoption — where cryptocurrency could be distributed as easily as “likes” and “upvotes” and this high powered distribution mechanism would bring adoption and appreciation to the currency and the social network,” says Ned Scott, former CEO, Chairman and Founder of Steemit. “From launching the platform in 2016 on a shoestring budget to today, I’ve enjoyed the development of the platform and the growth of its user base — now I’m excited to see a strategic partner attempt to bring it to new heights.”

Steemit & Tron Partner Up, What Will Happen Next?
- Steemit has announced at the end of last week that it will be partnering up with the Tron platform.
- The two companies will start working together in order to solidify Steemit and it’s blockchain-based decentralised applications with the blockchain on Tron.
The decentralised blockchain-based social media platform, Steemit announced at the end of last week that it will be partnering up with the Tron decentralised platform. The two companies will start working together in order to solidify Steemit and it’s decentralised applications with the blockchain with Tron.
The official release revealed that the two firms are set to use both of their services and products to help users. The Tron Foundation is bringing on board more than 20 million users to access services and products which are being offered by Steemit.
However, on the other hand, Steemit is going to be bringing in more than 1 million users into the community. This is, of course, a massive difference however, the two bodies will be offering different services to the users in question. This partnership will result in a strategic alliance between both Steemit and Tron.
As it is a social media-based website, Steemit rewards its users with the STEEM cryptocurrency for making content published on the website.
TRON Virtual Machine To Get Three New Features
- TRON’s CEO, Justin Sun, tweeted that the TRON Virtual Machine will get three new features as proposal number 32 was approved.
- Justin Sun and the TRON foundation’s moves have changed a lot of things in the virtual machine system.
TRON’s CEO, Justin Sun, tweeted that the TRON Virtual Machine will get three new features as proposal number 32 was approved. The new features of the TRON virtual machines will be support for parallel signature verification, multiple signature verification, and judge whether the address is the contract address.
TRON is one of the largest blockchain-based operating systems around the world. TRON has a high throughput, high scalability, and high availability.
TRON also has a wallet that supports TRX and other tokens on the TRON mainnet, which is available to download for various clients through their website.
The explanantion of the new features is given below:-
- Support parallel signature verification in TVM: The keyword that is to be used in the contract for parallel signature verification is ‘batchvalidatesign’.
- Support to judge whether the address is a contract address in TVM: The developers may face the problem of calling another contract in a contract, in the development of smart contracts. But in some contracts, the contract may not want to be invoked by any other contracts. This call can be restricted, and that can be done by using the ‘isContract’ command.
- Support multi-signature verification in TVM: The TRON blockchain supports the feature that lets an account use the multi-signature feature, and this is used a lot of time in scenarios such as permission control. Now the Virtual machines will also support the multi-signature feature. But the multi-signature will only support a maximum of five private key signatures.
This will further enrich the application scenarios of smart contracts. Justin Sun and the TRON foundation’s moves have changed a lot of things in the virtual machine system, and the users with open arms have welcomed these new features.
Tron News Today – Headlines for February 21
- Tron has lost more than 10% in the last 24-hours
- The coin has continued to slip amid an overall poor sentiment
- Justin Sun’s acquisitions to boost adoption haven’t paid off
Tron News Today – digital currency protocol, Tron’s price has dropped by over 10% in the past 24- hours, has today continued to slip even further down the charts in its ranking. The digital asset which wasn’t ranked among the top ten largest coins by market cap until recently has dropped to number 15 since this decline began. The most recent results for Tron have come despite the continued efforts of Justin Sun to foster growth in the Tron ecosystem with many new acquisitions.
Stiff Competition for Tron
Sun’s efforts to see that his brainchild Tron becomes a success once more has instead ensured that Tron’s native token TRX rallies only in the short-term. It appears that the digital asset has then withdrawn after the news of the decline phased out. What this implies is that even though the digital asset manages to perform well and enjoy some ‘bullish occasions’, it also nearly finds it difficult to extend this situation or climb higher. It lacks consistency.
In contrast, competitors Tezos and Chainlink have been consistent. After many weeks of rallying, both digital assets have successfully ensured that their market cap rose and now they are now sitting above Tron in the list of largest coin’s by market cap. Tezos has outdone other popular coins like Cardano and Stellar, to climb into the top ten. Meanwhile, Chainlink is just at the number 12 position with Cardano above it.
But Tron, on the other hand, could be phased out if it doesn’t rise and act more competitive against the other coins. Just like Ethereum Classic, NEM and IOTA, which were once ranked high but now only feature above number 20, Tron could act like these and follow their trend.
Sun’s Acquisitions Haven’t Paid off
Finally, the main reason why Sun’s acquisitions phase-out quickly remain to be seen. While the Tron chief continues to expand his coin’s ecosystem (as we can see from his previous acquisitions), none of these have paid off in a huge way. And with no long term plan, the projects he acquired or partnered with means nothing. These projects only create hype for the network which in turn drives in just short-term gains for TRX.
The only project that has long-term strategic partnerships is Ripple. Ripple looks for other protocols that make sure adoption comes to XRP as well as more use cases. In most instances, the XRP digital currency doesn’t make short term change. However, space places more trust in it especially on notions that it will come to the top for the long-term.
