Tron celebrates increased on-chain activity
Tron was found to have 1.23 million daily active users, nearly 23% more than the second-best Bitcoin [BTC]. The Justin Sun-founded chain also widened the gulf with BNB Chain, which for long dominated the list.
Apart from the phenomenal increase in its user base, other on-chain indications were also positive. According to Artemis data, the proof-of-stake (PoS) network maintained its position as the second-largest chain in terms of transaction count, trailing only Solana [SOL]. In the last 24 hours, Tron recorded about 4.44 million transactions.
Tron’s stablecoin push
The uptick in network traffic was powered by stablecoin transfers as Tron registered a significant jump in its stablecoin circulating supply year-to-date (YTD), according to DeFiLlama.
At the time of publication, Tron’s stablecoin market cap was $43.87 billion, 30% more than what it was at the beginning of 2023. A closer look revealed that Tron grabbed a big chunk of Ethereum’s [ETH] market to increase its pie.
The aggressive push aligned with founder Justin Sun’s vision of increasing the chain’s stablecoin supply to $60 billion by the end of 2023. Despite the extended bear market, one could say that Tron covered decent ground in pursuit of its goals.

TRX continues to go up in smoke
A noticeable development in the ecosystem was the continued burning of tokens. About 11.2 million TRX tokens were moved out of circulation on 10 September. Adjusted against newly minted tokens, there was a net decrease in the circulating supply of TRX by 6.13 million.
