TRON riding a DApp wave surpasses one million user addresses
The TRON foundation has added yet another accolade to its repertoire with network surpassing the one million user accounts mark, as the data revealed on December 23 shows.
Misha Lederman, the co-founder of TRON’s IAmDecentralized.org posted the same on his Twitter which the network’s passing of the aforementioned milestone. Lederman further added that TRON took 183 days since the launch of the TRX mainnet to reach the mark whereas, Ethereum reached the 1 million mark in 542 days since the launch of their mainnet.
TRON, launched their mainnet earlier in the year and have been riding high on their growing dominance with Decentralised Application (DApp) developers. In mid-November, TRON surpassed Ethereum’s DApp volume for the first time. To further push the DApp volume on the TRON platform, the foundation introduced the TRON Accelerator, a $1 million competition that would empower developers to build their DApp on TRON.
TRON is looking to get a further boost in January 2019, with their two-day flagship event, the niTROn summit, which will see attendees from a slew of top cryptocurrency companies. The summit’s second day will host a forum specifically for developers to further propel its DApp ecosystem. The forum is set to cover Super Representatives, DApp/Smart Contract development, game engine development, public chain research and more.
Justin Sun, the CEO of the foundation has some harsh words to spare for Ethereum, stating that the network along with ConsenSys, the Ethereum-centric start-up incubator, founded by the co-founder of Ethereum, Joseph Lubin was “slowly imploding.” He cited Ethereum’s inability to, “keep up with DApps,” and lack of funding for their downfall, and implored developers to leave as a project shutdown is imminent.
In November, Sun got into a Twitter scuffle with Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin over daily transaction volume of their respective cryptos. During the ordeal, Buterin lambasted Sun calling him a, “shill,” and, “not worth listening to.”
Tron has been performing significantly well this past week, amid the market fluctuations. TRX rose continuously since late last week, past the $1 billion mark to reach a high of $1.55 billion on December 24. As the markets began a wave of correction, the market cap has dropped to its current value of $1.38 billion.
