Tron introduces TronChat, a messaging dApp powered by TRX token
Tron [TRX] extends its reach to the social media platform. The company introduced TronChat, a new dApp built on Tron. It is powered by the TRX token and helps users earn TRX tokens in a variety of ways. “TronChat is like if Instagram, Venmo, and Telegram had a blockchain baby,” according to a Medium post.
TronChat takes pride in being ‘the first killer dApp for the blockchain world’. TronChat enables people to send and earn TRX by ‘doing the things that they love on social media’. TronChat boasts of photo, video and story-posting features similar to Instagram and also chat functionality attributed to Telegram. They say the purpose behind creating a social media platform is to let the users make money instead of social media giants. “Social media was never built for you to make money. Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and others were built for the sole purpose of generating profits for the platforms based on your user activity and personal data. TronChat was created to fix this paradigm, and allow users to make money from their everyday interactions with social media,” read the blog.
TronChat is still a work in progress however, the developers have finished the critical parts of the app. The project is looking at funding options to quicken the progress and launch the app. With the added feature of earning money through content creation, TronChat has the ability to undermine famous social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Telegram.
