The overly ambitious Tron-based platform called GOC announced that its decentralized exchange platform is going mobile. This is quite surprising when you take into account that the web version has been plagued with problems and it was not working (“under maintenance”) last week (for a while though). But it is terrific news nevertheless so let’s dig in a little more detail.
GOC is a family of decentralized apps that run on Tron’s network and blockchain. There’s GOC Play and GOC DEX.
GOC Play is gaming and gambling online platform which includes several classic casino games such as dice (craps), roulette, blackjack, baccarat, plinko, the fruits (a slot machine clone) with many more under development that will be online soon.
It has two native cryptocurrencies associated with it, one is called PLAY, and the other one is called Reward (RWD). Both are Tron-based tokens. The first one you can get at GOC DEX (a decentralized token exchange for TRC20 tokens developed and managed by the same team) and you use it to place your bets at the platform. The second one is, as the name suggests, a coin you get as a reward (or incentive) for using the platform to have some fun playing the available games.
Joining either GOC platform is exceedingly easy. All it takes is having a TronLink wallet. This particular wallet is nothing but a Chrome extension which takes less than 30 seconds to install in your browser, and once it’s there, you’re basically all set. You just need to get a few PLAY tokens, and that’s it. You’re ready to play, have some fun, and start getting some RWD tokens which you can use to buy tickets for the Weekly Reward Pool party, and acquire the right to some additional benefits that will increase in the future, according to the platform’s FAQ.
The latest news from GOC is that GOC DEX, the decentralized crypto exchange for TRC20 tokens in which you can get PLAY tokens, is going to become a mobile app shortly. The announcement came about at GOC’s Twitter account (@PLAY_GOC), and it features a screen cap that shows how the app is going to look like.
So why is this relevant? The web version doesn’t even work properly (it went to maintenance last week all of a sudden, but yeah, was up very shortly again) as you could see either by opening the site’s link (https://market.goc.network/en/exchange/v2?id=33) or by reading the comments that Tron users were posting at the platform’s Twitters.
Well, as we wrote in the previous paragraph, the site runs correctly now already. But more than that, crypto mobile apps are one of the ways in which decentralized apps and blockchain technology can achieve mass adoption a lot more quickly. And mass adoption is the name of the game. The more people that can find an easy way to join any of these platforms and buy TRX or Tron-based tokens, the more demand there will be for those tokens. And real-world demand is the one thing that can give any cryptocurrency market value and capitalization.
Tron and Tron-based projects have found ways to reach lots of new users and to capitalize on the currency. The proof is in the pudding: Tron is 8thth by market capitalization right now when just a few weeks ago it was 11th. That’s an amazing rate of growth, especially since the rest of the market is still bearish and keeps shrinking.
