Tron’s creator Justin Sun believes that his project will take the lead in the next bull rally, thanks to the mass adoption of dApps developed on this platform, as well as BitTorrent.
The Asian tech entrepreneur used his Twitter account @justinsuntron to predict that his crypto asset will occupy the first place in the next crypto frenzy scenario:
“Next wave of crypto is not going to be built on hype.@VitalikButerin admits that #ETH lead the 2017 bull run built on hype. #TRON will lead next bull run built on massive adoption dapps and @BitTorrent,” reads the tweet.
Sun posted this following an interview for Smart Valor by Ethereum’s creator, Vitalik Buterin, in which he said that the next crypto adoption wave will not be based on hype because hype is already there, but on useful applications and things delivering value to people
However, Vitalik did not mention any cryptocurrency or specific application.
Despite this, Sun ensures that the reason to lead the market in the next race will come from the adoption of the BitTorrent protocol – designed for peer-to-peer files sharing on Internet – as well as other important dApps.
In June 2018, Tron announced that it has acquired the peer to peer BitTorrent file exchange platform, after more than a year of negotiations.
In the following months, Tron unveiled its Project Atlas, a joint effort with the dev team behind the aforementioned protocol to bring blockchain and file sharing together, in an effort to reinforce content distribution and incentivize decentralization of the Internet.
Similarly, by the end of last month, it was known that BitTorrent had confirmed its integration with Tron to include Tronix (TRX) as a payment method for premium products along with Binance Coin (BNB) and Bitcoin (BTC).
Furthermore, Sun has continued engaging in alliances to ensure that his project gets as much exposure as possible. Because of that, his foundation partnered with the multiplayer online virtual reality world that runs on Blockchain, NeoWorld, in which its players can visit the TRON building.
