With the year 2019 now well gone, the Tron community is certainly expectant of more deals and partnerships but no ploys in 2020. Recently, Tron’s CEO Justin Sun tipped on a new alliance with Apple’s co-founder Steve Wozniak when the pair took a meal together. As usual, critics ridiculed Sun over the move. However, others, among them icons in the digital ecosystem deemed it a shrewd move.
Just yesterday, Sun via a tweet revealed he held a meeting with Litecoin’s CEO Charlie Lee. The caption on the shared picture on the tweet claimed that the two discussed their respective blockchains and Bitcoin generally. In addition, the Tron CEO added an enigma that the two discussed “some secrets.” Usually, Justin Sun’s tweets always draw speculations and this one was no different. The tweet raised many speculations regarding a possible collaboration with Litecoin.
While Both Tron and Litecoin communities are optimistic about some sort of partnership between the Tron foundation and the Litecoin foundation; maybe the latest meeting was just a meeting. In addition, Sun did not disclose if a partnership had been initiated between Tron Foundation and Litecoin Foundation.
Moreover, we cannot just ignore the fact that the two have held talks in the past to improve blockchain and cryptocurrency sector. In addition, the increased adoption of digital currencies to the general world has played a major role as a morale booster for both of them throughout their blockchain careers.
Sun’s Dodgy Announcements
Over the years, the Tron founder has been making headlines in all the mainstream press globally. However, he’s been creating a mixed atmosphere within the digital currency community. Many have acknowledged him for drawing as much attention as possible to Tron and the cryptocurrency sector in general; with his unconventional skills. However, others have despised him and branded his methods as misleading. Well, it is understandable for both parties considering Justin’s history of making announcements about bigger announcements.
Possibly, the canceled luncheon with the legendary billionaire investor Warren Buffet is the most notable one. Sun unexpectedly canceled the meeting after paying top dollar and apparently inviting a few guests over. He later apologized for the inconvenience and admitted that he was overindulgent in marketing the lunch.
Tron Advised on How to Become as Big as Apple
A few weeks back, Sun met the co-founder of American tech giants, Apple’s Steve Wozniak. This caused a frenzy amongst the cryptocurrency community. The expectation was that soon Tron may partner with Apple in the same way it did with Samsung.
Later on, Justin Sun revealed that he had received shrewd wisdom from Steve on how to prime his blockchain project. He claimed it was a huge pleasure to receive counsel from Steve on how to grow Tron Blockchain project like Apple.
Charlie Lee Suggests a BCH-Like Approach
Litecoin’s founder Charlie Lee, had earlier suggested a BCH-like development approach to create the Litecoin blockchain. As per him, mining pools contributing a chunk of the block reward voluntarily is a huge way to fund a project. He said:
“Currently with merged mining of Dogecoin and other Scrypt coins, miners make 105%+ of block rewards. So 1% is a reasonably small amount to give back towards funding a public good.”
TRX has not reacted to Justin Sun’s latest announcement. The altcoin latterly shited to position No. 10 on CoinMarketCap’s rankings. However, it has since slipped to spot 12. Tron (TRX) is currently valued at $0.016234 with 1.53% losses on the 24-hour modified timeframe.
