Tron Vs. Facebook as a Decentralized Blockchain
Tron as a digital currency is generally exchanged via the internet, but unlike other virtual currencies such as Bitcoin or Ripple’s XRP, Tron finds its best niche in the area of entertainment and showbiz with the goal to scrap off usability costs for individuals who want to access entertainment content such as movies and films.
As a decentralized blockchain technology, Tron aims to create a free content entertainment system globally where every user can freely publish, create, store, and archive data while content providers, on the other hand, will be restrained from paying high commissions to centralized networks such as Apple App Store and Google Play. Users will be in control of their information and data unlike in the Facebook situation where user data are leaked to advertising firms.
All in all, things are looking pretty good for the so-called hyped-crypto, Tron (TRX), as the project seems to be a real deal and not just the hot air. With BitTorrent’s 100 million users joining the Tron party, its Virtual Machine launch and robust mission, Tron (TRX) seems to be on its way to at least join top 7 cryptocurrencies list (if not top 5) soon.
