The pump in the coin’s price was speculated to be due to the recent AMA by BAT’s CFO, Holli Bohren, that took place on Reddit. In the AMA, Holli Bohern answered various questions, with the most popular one being about BAT’s “successful exit”.

Speaking about BAT’s successful exit, Bohren said:

“In Brave’s case, it is unlikely a buyer would overlook the BAT ecosystem and the UGP, and any exit involving an acquisition would (by design) bind the acquirer to Brave’s brand values and to BAT’s economics going to large scale. Any dismal exit would not be good for either equity investor or BAT holders. Go big or go home!”

She added:

“Brave has a large UGP (300M) sufficient to fund well beyond the launch of ads. The sale structure including genesis block structure was publicized on in blog posts, and then made public via smart contracts on Ethereum. The Public ledger is public.”

A Twitter user, @bula_naboo, commented:

“I wanna thank everyone who works so hard on bat I know you guys are knocking em dead thank you thank you.”

Another Twitter user, @RWMichaels92779, commented:

“BAT would be a perfect partner for @Tronfoundation and @BitTorrent with what they are building.”

Tron [TRX], the eleventh largest coin on CoinMarketCap, has been crossing new milestones recently, with its block height and partnerships. Despite the coin performing rather poorly in a relatively bullish market, its adoption and the popularity of its DApps have made Tron lead the DApps market.

Tron’s popular proponent, Misha Lederman, shared with the community Tron’s recent achievement. Compared to Ethereum [ETH] and EOS, Tron registered a higher number of new users and active users. It noted 60k new users, while Ethereum reported 25K and EOS reported 9k. The active users on Tron’s DApps platform were 172k, followed by EOS with 170k and ETH with 54k.

Lederman in his tweet commented,

“#TRON growing fastest in terms of new users among Top 3 platforms:
New Users:
TRON 60K; #ETH 25K; #EOS 9K
Active Users:
TRON 172K; EOS 170K; ETH 54K”

He added that BitTorrent Speed’s launch in Q2 would provide Tron and BitTorrent users with BTT as an incentive for seeding, which might lead to a growth in the user base of TRX and BTT.

According to Tron foundation and BitTorrent CEO Justin Sun, TRX will make its way into the top 10 by the end of June, whereas BTT will be a part of top 30 by Q2. However, Tron’s current market cap is $1.87 billion, whereas Cardano [ADA] on the tenth position reported a market cap of $2.12 billion.

At press time, Tron was valued at $0.0279, with a market cap of $1.87 billion. The 24-hour trading volume of the coin was noted to be $664 million, as it fell by 2.80% in a day. TRX managed to register 12.60% growth over the past seven days. However, it fell by 0.53% in an hour.
