Justin Sun, Tron’s CEO and founder is a man who knows to use Tweeter to great effects, like a nice and intelligent version of Donald Trump. Yesterday, he tweeted something of a congratulatory message for the Tron community because of the current holiday season, New Year’s Eve, more specifically.
His tweet reads:
The year of 2018 is almost gone, are you ready to embrace the year of 2019? What’s your New Year Resolution? Share this post, @ 2friends with #niTROn2019, let us know your wishes to friends and #TRON team. #niTRON tickets and #TRX are waiting for you. $TRX https://t.co/3gibmR5YcZ

The community answered enthusiastically to Mr. Sun with wishes such as “for Tron to grow in adoption, users and sophistication”, “to buy a house with $TRX”, “to confirm the #TRX moon”, “My New Years Resolution is to continue to WORK, #HODLTRX and accumulate more, to run another half marathon, and to continue my support of the #TRON ecosystem on and offline. I want to double my hodlings of $TRX by this time next year.”
Tron is one of the blockchain communities with the tightest, most committed members, as is apparent from their new year’s wishes. And they have good reason to be pleased about the currently ending year and to look forward to the future optimistically.
As 2018 started Tron was a fledgling project that was recently launched over the Ethereum network with an ERC-20 based token called Tronix (TRX) and it was all working well, or at least as well as it could be expected at the Ethereum level since that network has had performance issues all year long.
Even before the year began, Tron’s leadership realized that the project’s huge ambitions (to decentralize the whole web and content production systems using Tron’s blockchain, no less) were going to need a network way more powerful than Ethereum’s. So they started to work on a new, independent, network called the Tron Main Net. Which went online in May, after several successful developing stages.
But that wasn’t everything. After that, the project released its new virtual machine, a developer’s kit, several websites, a decentralized crypto exchange, a weekly online magazine. It acquired several important new strategic partnerships. Every milestone was delivered on time and it worked correctly too.
Perhaps most importantly was Project Atlas. Mr. Sun had the idea to buy BitTorrent, so he went ahead and did it. So now Tron owns the world’s largest decentralized network and it’s going to integrate it into the Tron’s blockchain. It will reward seeding with TRX tokens and from one day to the next Tron will be the world’s largest content provider through BitTorrent.
So it’s been a very good year for Tron, and community members are picking up on that. They’re being quite optimistic and hoping for great things for 2019. And we can’t argue with that. Tron is a solid project in which the fundamentals are strong because the network has some very interesting use cases and it’s not based only in the speculative power of a cryptocurrency, which is too often the case with blockchain projects.
