TRON plugs payment gap for public toilets with MOSHROOM tie-up
TRON is making quite a splash with its latest partnership, as this one is definitely unique. TRON has joined hands with MOSHROOM, a portable smart toilet maker in China. The partnership with TRON will give MOSHROOM access to technical support for cross-border mobile payments.
Under the partnership, the two companies will work on blockchain technologies, mainly cross-border settlements using virtual currencies. Usage of these toilets, and payments for the same, will be empowered by blockchain technologies.
“Since currency systems vary from country to country, it’s not an easy job to popularize our portable toilets around the world. Therefore, we are happy to work with TRON, one of the best in the blockchain community, and promote our project with the help of cryptocurrency,” said Cosmos Wu, founder and CEO of MOSHROOM.

Public toilets: a real mess
Poor public toilet facilities are a real issue in developing countries. These facilities are often plagued with poor hygiene, pollution and health risks on account of lack of planning and low budget for such projects.
MOSHROOM aims to solve these issues with its one-set portable toilets, which are equipped with flush-free toilet fittings. Moreover, the whole unit is powered using solar energy. In short, these toilets can work without external supply of water or electricity.
MOSHROOM is currently support by the Chinese government and has already set up dozens of portable toilets across Beijing.
The announcement mentioned that TRON and MOSHROOM will initially promote such portable toilets in Southeast Asia and India.
