It has been less than a year since TRON (TRX) launched its MainNet, but during this short period, the project has seen a massive amount of success. Not only did it partner up with countless exchanges and other projects, but it also went through a token migration, token burns, and a Super Representatives election.
Then, it acquired BitTorrent and announced Project Atlas, which later led to the launch of the BitTorrent token (BTT). In addition, it launched its own DEX, its ecosystem exploded with dApps and smart contracts, and it even managed to beat several records regarding the number of transactions per day and week.
While all of this already seems like more than a project should be able to achieve in less than a year — it is only the tip of the iceberg in TRON’s case. Misha Lederman, who has been elected as an advisor to the dApp Evolution Ecosystem, and who is deeply respected within the TRON community, often points out TRON’s achievements.
He recently noted that TRON’s number of dApp users exceeded 88,928 on April 30th, while the project had over 407 active dApps at the time. In addition, TRON is nearing its 1,000th smart contract, which proves that developers are favoring the ecosystem more than ever.
With 407 decentralized apps live on https://t.co/NOiHq5tOGz, TRON's user base is growing daily & will soon surpass 100k

While the project is young, it is extremely innovative, brimming with enthusiasm, creativity, and has a rapidly-growing user base. There is proof of this as well, as the project already has over two million addresses.
With all of this in mind, it is clear that TRON is slowly, but surely, becoming one of the most popular platforms in the world of blockchain. The project has managed to avoid controversies and scandals, unlike other coins, particularly Tether (USDT). Meanwhile, TRON’s dApp number is growing as well, with new ones getting launched all the time. With a situation like that, it would not be surprising if TRON surpassed EOS in terms of dApp innovation, and become the so-called ‘Ethereum Killer.’
TRON vs EOS and Ethereum
While TRON may be at the 11th spot in terms of market cap, it is only third when it comes to dApps. EOS still holds the second place, while Ethereum leads. However, this situation might change in weeks to come, if TRON’s development continues at this pace.
Ethereum will be a much more difficult project to surpass, as it already has over 1700 dApps, where TRON still has just a bit over 400. However, it is also important to note that Ethereum has been developing dApps for nearly four years now, while TRON had less than one. In addition, the speed at which TRON dApps are coming out is increasing, while Ethereum’s developers appear to be migrating away in favor of EOS and TRON.
Finally, as proof that the perspective does matter, there is CCID (Chinese Ministry of Industry and Technology Development), which made its own list of best projects. On their list, EOS currently leads as the best one, while TRON is a close second. However, this list does not focus on the number of dApps, but instead on creativity, innovative ideas, the applicability of an asset, and essential technological ability.
TRON is certainly deserving of the high rank, and it is likely only a matter of time before it surpasses EOS. As for Ethereum, it is still one of the most important projects ever to be developed, and that will never change. However, Ethereum’s focus is on smart contracts, rather than the coin or dApps, which is still an area where the project dominates, and that is unlikely to change anytime soon.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor. But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.
Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace. The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information. Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed. Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?
While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.
Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors. The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…
CoinFlip Scores Big with BRD Wallet Partnership
As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible. While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.

In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country. Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

Can Libra help the crypto industry to reach new heights?
The market for cryptocurrencies started with the launch of Bitcoin in 2009, and since then, so many cryptocurrencies have been launched that it gets hard to keep track of them. The crypto market has seen massive growth in the past 3-4 years as it started gaining attention from mass media, which helped in this boom.
From the past 2-3 years, several new cryptocurrency projects were launching in the market. Amid all this, the social media giant – Facebook announced the launch of their cryptocurrency platform, and this news got viral like wildfire. The announcement came forward in June, and the upcoming cryptocurrency is known as Libra, and it’ll come with its dedicated wallet called Calibra.
What is Libra?
Libra is a permissioned blockchain-based digital currency which is being developed under the supervision of Facebook’s vice president, David A. Marcus. The cryptocurrency is under development in partnership with an independent, non-profit member Libra Association. Facebook is the second member of the project, and these companies aim to use Facebook’s user base for the promotion of the digital currency when it is launched. The transactions and the cryptocurrency will be managed and cryptographically entrusted by the Libra Association.
Note: Libra Association was established by Facebook to look after the cryptocurrency and the transactions, and it was founded in Geneva, Switzerland.
