On 4th September, Tron [TRX] surpassed EOS in terms of the number of accounts on the network. This comes in the limelight days after the launch of the Tron Virtual Machine.

Justin Sun, the CEO and Founder of Tron Foundation said on Twitter:

“#TRON MainNet accounts have surpassed #EOS. 12:00pm, September 4, 2018, according to  and , #TRON MainNet: 301604 V.S. #EOS: 299743. The #TRON Network continues to thrive and gains more recognition 71 days post #TRON MainNet launch.”

At the time of writing, Tron had a total number of 301,765 accounts on the network and EOS had a total number of 299,820 accounts on the network. This means that Tron surpassed EOS with over 1,945 accounts.

In addition, Justin Sun had anticipated Tron to surpass EOS in terms of the account number by the end of Q3 i.e., by the end of September, during the launch of the Tron Virtual Machine. This comes in the limelight on the 4th anniversary of Tron [TRX].

According to Justin, Tron is going to surpass Ethereum with their Virtual Machine. The TVM is completely compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine. During the TVM launch, Justin updated the community on the progress of Tron in comparison to Ethereum.

After the MainNet launch, the number of accounts on the Tron network is 11 times that of Ethereum. The single day transaction peak is 46 times that of Ethereum’s single day transactions in the past 2 months.

Along with the Tron Virtual Machine Launch, Project Atlas has also stepped into the industry with the aim to ‘Decentralize the Internet’. The project is the collaboration of BitTorrent, the biggest Torrent platform in the world, and Tron. They will connect the platforms with the use of BitTorrent protocol extensions.

The official web portal for BitTorrent was launched during the launch of the Virtual Machine. Project Atlas is working towards increasing the lifespan of the Torrent swarms and increase the speed. In addition, the custom token and an inclined token will solve the existing limitation of the platform.

Steve, a Twitterati said:

“Tron cant be compared to EOS. TRON=FUTURE, EOS=EndOfStory”

Akbar Khan, another Twitterati said:

“that’s great but you gotta realise it’s important for TRON believers to see it reflect in the price. which it certainly hasn’t !”

CryptoLionel, a crypto-enthusiast said:

“Remember what your teachers said: Its primarily all about quality not quantity! #MoonMission”

According to CoinMarketCap, at press time, Tron was trading at $0.025 with a market cap of more than $1.66 billion. The coin was trading in the 13th position and has seen a rise of more than 1% in the past 24 hours.

Daily Crypto News – May 25

1) Bitcoin Wallet receives part of 5,000 BTC: A recent Whale Alert highlighted a transaction on May 24, where a large sum of Bitcoin [BTC] exchanged hands between two anonymous wallets. According to the alert the transaction took place at 22:13:23 + 1 minutes and 5,000.00001092 BTC was transferred from an unknown wallet, with address 19SiCYaYKZh9A8HUjuh14eg5wtYzKxiFbB, to another unknown wallet with address 14GcjGjxwadzcpmq9EG3KUgTKATjurbnWt.

To put that number in perspective, in March 2019, the average contracts traded was less than 4,000. Despite the high standards set in April, the average daily contracts traded in May, with 25 days gone has exceeded 14,000 and still looks to grow, given the price performance of Bitcoin.


3) Craig Wright on private keys: Craig S Wright has, for years, claimed he is the true creator of Bitcoin [BTC] without providing a shred of evidence to support the same. With the crypto-community levelling, Wright could prove his worth by sending BTC from Satoshi Nakamoto’s touted wallet containing around 980,000 BTCs, the BSV man in a twisted cause and effect situation, stated he will “sign” into his wallet only when he proves he is the creator.


4) Tether’s [USDT] market cap hits ATH: Tether and Bitfinex are being closely scrutinized now more than ever due to the NYAG’s lawsuit; however, the scrutiny doesn’t seem to have affected Tether as the market cap of USDT has increased by over $100 million in approximately 70 days.


5) Tether volume shift: Another controversial topic in the cryptocurrency industry was the issue of fake transaction volumes on many of the popular cryptocurrency exchanges. The magnitude of the topic was so large that even Changpeng Zhao, the Chief Executive Officer [CEO] of Binance had raised red flags. This topic and Tether as a whole received another twist when Larry Cermack, the Director of Research at The Block, pointed out a few parameters when it came to the said volume.


6) Bitfinex’s LEO tokens listed on Delta Exchange: Bitfinex’s Leo tokens faced quite a lot of criticism when they were announced, due to the missing $850 million funds from Bitfinex. The private investment round by Bitfinex also faced a lot of heat from the media. However, in a recent development, Leo tokens are being listed on various exchanges for trading.


7) Robinhood en-route a projected valuation of $7 billion: Robinhood, the California-based cryptocurrency exchange made headlines recently when a source close to the organization revealed that it was on the verge of closing their latest round of funding at a valuation of a whopping $7 billion – $8 billion. Sources even claimed that the current round of funding could act as a precursor to an even bigger round of funding, which would pit Robinhood with the bigwigs like Coinbase and Binance.
