One asset that has made surges of late was Tron, and its CEO Justin Sun wasted no time in informing the world about his upcoming plans and goals.
The Tron Foundation is known for announcing multiple developments and updates from its roster but the past few weeks has seen a lull from the Justin Sun led the department. This notion was blown away when the Chief Executive Officer [CEO] took to Twitter to reveal that it had added another feather to its cap when it came to Decentralized Applications.
Dapp.com, the popular data aggregator on dapps stated that out of the top 5 applications on the ranking list, four were built on the Tron blockchain. The list is speculated to pave the way for asserting Tron’s dominance in the application space, with rivals Ethereum and EOS hot on its tail. According to Dapp.com, DLive was the most used application with a 24-hour volume of 1.02 million LINO. DLive was the only application in the top 5 list that was not built on the Tron blockchain but rather on the LINO blockchain.
WINk came in second on the list and was the most used gambling DApp in the industry. The application had witnessed a resurgence in its market volume after being built on the Tron platform. The number of users on the 24-hour spectrum has always stayed above the 1k mark with the developers claiming that the number would only shoot up in 2020.
The third dApp on the rankings was Betfury, a popular Tron partner. Despite the fall in Tron’s prices over the last quarter, Betfury has consistently released updates to ramp up its mainstream application usage. The 24-hour volume on Betfury was clocked at 179.27K USD, a far cry from its hold in the lower thousands when it first launched. Justin Sun’s original tweet had read:
“According to @dapp_com, on the #Dapps overall ranking list, 4 out of the top 5 Dapps are built on #TRON network. Besides, @NewdexOfficial also launched on #TRON network in September & #TRC20–#USDT is supported on Newdex exchange as well.”
The announcement was met with mixed reactions from the Tron community or ‘TRONics’. Some were of the opinion that Tron should focus on quality and not quantity as that would impede its growth in the long term. Another sector of the fanbase urged the Justin Sun led organization to carry on their rampage and ‘destroy’ the monopoly held by Ethereum and EOS.
Tron received another boost recently when Samsung announced that they were adding support for three new Tron dApps. The report released by a Korean outlet stated that the tech behemoth will add blockchain-based games such as Super Player and Blockchain Cuties to its flagship mobile releases.
