Justin Sun, Tron Foundation CEO has rejoiced about its native currency going ahead of EOS and with this, the network "continues to thrive". The founder has revealed on the popular social media platform, Twitter on 4th August that the total accounts of Tron have well exceeded EOS. This event is preceded by the recent launching of Tron Virtual Machine on 30th August, 2018.

When Justin Sun posted his tweet, the number of accounts present on Tron Network was 301765. In contrast, the accounts on the EOS network was 299820. Hence, the difference gives a clear indication that by a mark of 1945 accounts the former has successfully beaten EOS.

The Twitter Post

On Twitter, Sun has stated, "#TRON MainNet accounts have surpassed #EOS. 12:00pm, September 4, 2018, according to  and , #TRON MainNet: 301604 V.S. #EOS: 299743. The #TRON Network continues to thrive and gains more recognition 71 days post #TRON MainNet launch.”


Previously, at the time of TVM launch, he had already envisioned the number of account associated with Tron to soon exceed EOS by the end of September, 2018. However, this event has coincided with the 4th anniversary of the Foundation. As per the opinion of Justin Sun, with the help of the Virtual Machine, the network will also be surpassing Ethereum. TVM displays equal compatibility with Ethereum Virtual Machine. Hence, on the day of TVM launch, the CEO provided an update to the community regarding Tron's growth with respect to Ethereum.

Currently, the total accounts on the former network is 11 times more than that of the latter. The fundamental reason behind this huge gap in account number is the release of Mainnet. Last two months record has revealed that Tron's peak of each day transaction is 46 times more than Ethereum. In the coinmarketcap rating, Tron [TRX] is currently occupying 13th position which has experienced a positive change of 1.67% with $0.02 valuation. The trading volume is $88.23 million with market capitalisation of $1.66 billion.
