Tron is a third generation blockchain network that’s been pushing very hard to develop new decentralized applications and deploy them in its network. Five out of the world’s top ten Dapps are Tron’s including TronBet, which is the world’s biggest regarding cash flow. And there’s a relatively new kid in the block: Tronchat.
As you can probably guess from the name, the new app is all about chatting with your friends and contacts. It’s a new social media that runs on Tron’s blockchain. As it’s happened with most of Tron’s new decentralized applications, it’s not just your standard app, but it’s very innovative in several ways.
The app can be installed on your mobile phone, and it allows you to share media such as pictures, videos, stories, and premium content. You can use it for the chat and for messaging individually or in chatrooms. And it rewards you as a user giving you Evo and TRX tokens.
So how does it work? Well, it’s quite simple. You just download and install the app, create a profile and then you start sharing pictures, videos, stories. Chat with your friends through messages and chats.
Then you can earn EVO and Tron tokens by being an influencer and charging users for subscriptions to your content. Even opening new messages will get you rewards but you can also get tips from other users, and joining premium chatrooms also earns you a reward.
The app is a member of the DAPP Evolution Ecosystem which is an environment within Tron that’s powered by the EVO token. It aims to open new possibilities for the internet of value by rewarding users for the money they spend using the apps. It will be available soon for iOS, Android and Windows.
The new chatting app has been in the works since last December (the project’s latest white paper update happened on December 24th), and it’s about to be launched soon. It’s not just about chatting, though. The idea behind the Evolution family of apps is to return value to users in a way that the internet hasn’t seen so far.
Security and transparency are central values in TronChat (which is a contrast with other social media platforms such as Facebook which have been suffering from some very murky episodes over the last months). Contributions in the platform will empower and reward users who will earn tokens for competing microtasks, watching ads, and reacting and replying to paid inbox messages
The EVO token will go on sale at 20 TRX and it will be useful for buying advertising space at TronRadar, to buy virtual goods and services at TronChat, to compensate premium content and subscriptions at the chatting app, to pay for fees, items at TronCollectibles, to buy exclusive EVO collectibles, to create or to join premium chatrooms, exchange messages and to contribute to dApps at the EVO dApp incubator program.
Tronchat’s core values are fairness, utility, privacy and equal opportunity for all users.
Tron’s community is nothing if not enthusiastic, and Justin Sun (Tron’s CEO and founder) owes his credibility and fame as an entrepreneur to a messaging application called Peiwo, which is China’s dominant communications app. So it will be very interesting to see how TronChat develops.
