Tron [TRX] and its assets made waves in the world of cryptocurrencies with several updates and developments aimed at targeting the lack of interoperability in the ecosystem being announced on a routine basis. Tron’s newly acquired BitTorrent had previously announced that they were ready for the second airdrop with users set to receive 990,000,000 BTT.

Tron Foundation and BitTorrent have now revealed that the BTT airdrop was complete. Justin Sun, the Chief Executive Officer [CEO] and founder of Tron Foundation, tweeted,

“$BTT airdrop completed! It’s now processing through the exchanges & wallets, please be patient and thank you all for supporting it! Next one will be on April 11.”

Sun stated that the block height for the snapshot was 7,384,207, with all of the 990,000,000 being transferred in the airdrop. The BitTorrent airdrop was supported by several popular exchanges like Binance, Huobi, and OKEx. Previously, Sun had commented on the airdrop demo after there were rumors about the performance of the airdrop. He tweeted,



“Saw demo today. #BTT is running extremely smooth and fast which is powered by #TRON. Every Tx is instant and safe with decentralization guaranteed. I can’t imagine how much we will shake the industry once we deliver these to the entire 100 million active users.”

BitTorrent has been working to increase its adoption following its latest incentives program. The Tron-acquired company announced that its new incentive plans will be for BitTorrent and uTorrent users, partners and ecosystems. The original announcement read,

“To keep growing the #BitTorrent community and make #blockchain accessible to most people we are unveiling three new incentive plans available to our users, partners, and the clients using our protocol!”

Tron is having good week after it was reported that Tron’s market volume was more than the combined value of both Ethereum and EOS across two days. This was showcased by a report from DApp Review, which stated that Tron’s volume value of $43.616 million was far more than the $11.617 million and $4.408 million clocked by EOS and Ethereum respectively.

Tron DApp Weekly Report: Tron DApps number led by Gambling apps

Tron, the eleventh largest cryptocurrency on CoinMarketCap, recently collaborated with Bitpie, a partnership that would help startups to bridge the gap in vulnerable financial systems. Tron’s token might be lagging in terms of performance in the market but, Tron DApps continued to surge.

The DApp weekly report released by the Tron Foundation reported an increase of 22 DApps in the Tron ecosystem, taking the total to 392. It noted that gambling DApps mainly contributed to this growth as 17 DApps were gambling-based. Decentralized exchanges followed suit, as 3 new DApps made their way into the Tron DApp ecosystem. The main highlight for the entire Tron community was the partnership with Opera, a mainstream browser.

Tron introduced a DApp ‘Lucky Moon,’ an entertainment-based DApp that pushes users to estimate the current time to run away from the imploding rocket with a specific reward rate. As the rocket takes-off, the reward rate keeps increasing and the player will have to escape at the right time. An extension of this game is ‘Tyrant Annihilation,’ where users need to collect seven types of equipment to kill a tyrant. The DApp might have taken inspiration from The Avengers.



The report made note of the fact that the Tron public chain received support from Aocoin wallet, a decentralized secure digital currency wallet. My Token, a software company that specializes in market information has been integrated into Tronscan and TRX market, leading the way to user traffic in DApps ecosystem.

At press time, Tron was valued at $0.0283 with a market cap of $1.89 billion. The 24-hour trading volume of the coin was noted to be $690.34 as it reported 6.36% growth over the past day. The coin grew by 8.80% over the past seven days, but fell by 0.44% in an hour.
