Tron to become the Google for blockchain industry? Taking slow steps to achieve its aim to ‘Decentralize the Web’
Efforts of Tron to make the blockchain better has been evident from all the recent developments. In fact, the short span of time, it has achieved so much already – Tron’s transaction speed has already surpassed major cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. Successful acquisition of BitTorrent & BlockChain.Org should also be added to its list of recent successes. And now, Justin Sun’s Tron is possibly aiming to be the Google-like search engine for the blockchain industry.
This was evident from the announcement made after the recent acquisition of the BlockChain.Org. on August 10. According to Tron.Live report, Justin Sun aims to use the site/platform as a one-stop aggregated data and search engine platform. “It will be a platform that offers big data analysis, project evaluation, information search and other services for users in the blockchain field. Justin also encourages others in the industry to participate and build a platform to help the growth of blockchain industry,” the report mentioned.
Decentralize the Web
Tron’s aim to ‘Decentralize the Web’ is not new, in fact, in a recent letter, founder Justin Sun wrote one of the major reasons for BitTorrent acquisition was BitTorrent’s commitment towards a similar value – “Democratize the Internet”. With BlockChain.Org acquisition, Tron just hopes to achieve the feat quicker. Moreover, the aim to create such a platform is for the betterment of the industry and not for profit as Justin Sun said, “The success of the project should not be measured by its profit or its user base. What really matters is that if it makes an effort to make improvements for the entire industry.”
Traditional search engine vs. Tron’s search engine
Traditional search engines such as Google, use algorithms to search and classify websites according to relevance. A number of factors decide the rank of the website – age, keyword frequency, back links among others.
Tron Foundation aims to use BlockChain.Org aims to observe and keep a track of all the information on social media, web, and other existing search engines. The information will be in all possible formats such as regular text, videos, pdf and other structured data.
“By collecting a big amount of data, it will help TRON to better analyze what the community wants, what the blockchain field needs and what the current and future market condition is,” Tron.Live reported, “User can also utilize these analyzed data to be better informed about a certain project and get the information they need. The introduction of BlockChain.org can also help solve certain problems in the blockchain field by analyzing the needs of the market and offering a feasible solution to it.”
