Tron CEO Justin Sun hints about ‘exciting news’, shares about BitTorrent, Line partnership & more
Tron’s vision to ‘decentralize the web’ and its efforts to achieve the same is prominent. In a recent interview with Forbes, Tron founder Justin Sun shared more about the goal of the company, recent partnerships, listings and acquisition. While discussing about it all, Justin Sun dropped the hint that more exciting news that would be coming out by the fourth quarter.
When asked about the plans he has related to acquired decentralized services. “We recently acquired BitTorrent, the most popular decentralized service, in July. TRON has embraced a massive network with over 100 million active users,” Justin Sun said, “We also recently kicked off Project Atlas, which will let us incentivize users within the BitTorrent ecosystem to participate and contribute to the network by offering our own tokens—a first in history. We have more exciting news coming out in the fourth quarter as well.”
Tron has always kept the community excited with some event or the other. Last month, Sun came up with the ‘Secret Project’ making the entire community eagerly wait for almost a month to know the details. This time again, he just hinted on some exciting news without revealing anything much about it. However, it will possibly be something related to BitTorrent since Sun revealed about it while taking about acquired decentralized services.
Justin Sun’s take on Tron being listed on Line’s BITBOX
One of Tron’s recent listing was on BITBOX. While speaking about it, Sun mentioned that their aim is to decentralize the whole Internet and these new listings are stepping stones to achieve the target. “If you look at our portfolio, you will find exchanges from all around the world: US, Korea, Japan, India and the list continues. It is very important for us that our tokens are available to the most people since our company mission is to the decentralize the whole Internet,” Sun said.
He further points out how the listing will help them to achieve their goals of expanding further into Korea and Japan. “Korea and Japan are key strategic markets for us. As you know, these economies are doing a lot of heavy lifting in the tech industry and being available in those markets will let us connect with more partners as well as provide better product integrations for our token holders. We are already listed in most of the top Korean exchanges and integrating with LINE’s exchange will give us a much broader audience.”
