Justin Sun Celebrates Over 500K Tron Mainnet Accounts After Offering To Sponsor A Debate Event Between Vitalik Buterin And Nouriel Roubini
Another day, another Tron-related announcement.
Justin Sun started this week by celebrating a brand new milestone on social media. Tron just reached 1.5 million followers on Facebook.
Google Trends shows that the interest in Tron has been continually growing across the world, and it even managed to eclipse both Ripple and Ethereum during the past week. Tron flaunts 76, Ripple, 57 and Ethereum 34.
Now, Justin Sun announced something stimulating regarding the success gained by the Tron ecosystem since the launch of its own mainnet.
Mainnet new Tron accounts surpassed 500K
He said that the mainnet new accounts of Tron have managed to surpass 500K. The growth is a steady one of 100K/month.
He also made sure to mention the fact that there have been only four months since the launch of the Tron mainnet.
Tron has been making headlines recently due to all kinds of achievements and developments.
The team established new important partnerships with huge players across various industries.
These include BitTorrent, Pornhub, and Baidu (there’s a potential partnership with the Chinese tech giant as well, but it has not been confirmed).
Regarding Baidu, according to the latest rumors, if Tron does team up with the tech giant, their project will not revolve around the blockchain technology, but around cloud computing.
Despite this, rumors claim that the Tron ecosystem is purchasing cloud computing to build, create and debug products and apps on the blockchain.
