Tron [TRX] surges by over 6% as token storms back into the top 10
Tron’s [TRX] price was surging, even as the cryptocurrency market cooled down following a brief rally anchored by Bitcoin [BTC]. The collective market cap stood at $324 billion. Following the surge, the token was back among the top 10 coins of the cryptocurrency market, a month after CEO Justin Sun promised the same. His tweet had said,
“#TRON will be back to Top 10 in June! #BitTorrent will be Top 30 in Q2! Let’s wait and see! #BTT $BTT $TRX #TRX”
However, despite the fact that Tron’s native token was prospering, BitTorrent [BTT] was still down at the 35th position on CoinMarketCap.
Despite low trading volume lately, TRX gradually climbed to break its resistance at $0.035. The latest bullish swing was speculated to lead TRX to breach the much-awaited $0.04 resistance.
Tron’s climb up the charts and into the top 10 is a surprise for some, especially since Tron overtook Cardano. The Charles Hoskinson-led crypto is still on a high after recent updates in its ecosystem, including the Shelly testnet going live.
Tron however, has not being standing idly. Recently, CEO Justin Sun revealed that Tron’s DApp trading volumes has exceeded those of EOS and Ethereum. Further, the Tron Foundation recently released a version of the Odyssey update on its mainnet. Further, Tron’s blockchain saw the release of a USD-backed stablecoin by Carbon recently.
