If you read our posts regularly, you probably already know that Tron, as a third-generation blockchain is not all about a coin (Tronix or TRX in these case) but about a programmable platform that can develop and deploy smart contracts and decentralized apps which aim to decentralize the world wide web as soon as possible.
Yes, the coin is valuable, but it’s not like first-generation blockchains in which there’s nothing else. In Tron’s case, the coin is supposed to facilitate the network’s other aims.
We’re happy to report that Tron has been very successful very quickly in making progress as a decentralized network.
No, the web is not fully decentralized yet, but there are already 200 decentralized apps running on Tron’s network and the top 24 alone boast 65,000 individual users daily. That is quite a lot if you take into account that the other two top dApp platforms (EOS and Ethereum) are nowhere near in terms of daily users or token flow.

So you’re not impressed yet? Well, have a look at dappradar.com. This is a website which monitors activities at the world’s main blockchain platforms. According to it, three out of the world’s four most popular dApps are running on Tron (Crazy Dogs Live, PLAY GOC, and Epic Dragons).
This is amazing progress, and it’s happened very quickly. Tron has been around for fewer than two years, and it became an independent network only last May. So all these achievements have happened in fewer than 12 months. That’s been enough for Tron to become more relevant as a decentralized network than Ethereum, which was the rule for years before Tron became independent.
And the best is still to come. The Tron Foundation bought BitTorrent a few months ago, and it’s working on merging it into Tron’s blockchain.
BitTorrent, with more than a hundred million users scattered all over the planet, has been the world’s largest decentralized network for a very long time, and its file-sharing client is about to become another decentralized application at Tron.
Can you imagine that? The network will grow by millions in a single day, just as soon as both networks become united.
If you haven’t tried out any of Tron’s apps, we encourage you to buy a few TRX tokens and give them a go. Some of them are quite simple, but they’re all quite entertaining. And it will give you an opportunity to chat with other people interested in blockchain technology and Tron as well.
As we write this, Tron’s TRX is the world’s eight cryptocurrency by market capitalization (according to conmarketcap.com), and it’s trading at USD 0.024136 and in green numbers. So the token is still quite cheap, but we seriously doubt it will remain that way for long.
Every active dApp in the network is a use case, and the more use cases a coin has, the better chances it has to become demanded and, hence, valuable. The network is strong, it’s useful, and it’s growing at high speed. And so will the token’s value.
