Tron’s CEO gave an update to last week’s announcement by the chief technical officer at Tron who announced his departure from the project due to too much centralization. However, in the latest cryptocurrency news, we hear the other side of the story.
Earlier this week, the CTO of TRON announced to be leaving the project. Chen was with TRON since 2017 and before leaving he stated that TRON isn’t really the project which he thought he was. He blamed it on heavy centralization and abandoning the initial goal of the project.
However, it turns out that Lucien Chen was actually fired a few months ago:
“Suspicion of misappropriation of funds, bribery, competitive infringement, and theft of trade secrets and intellectual property.”
Tron’s CEO and founder Justin Sun confirmed the announcement on Twitter. The situation is interesting since two days ago, Lucien Chen was still listed as CTO of the company on LinkedIn. There was no official announcement that backed up his criminal history so the TRX developers and investors will be waiting in the dark for now.
The first time Chen’s crimes were mentioned was just when he started speaking out against TRON. When he announced his departure earlier this week, he stated that Tron’s CEO Sun was to blame for diluting the vision of the project. Chen made clear that TRON is no longer decentralized and is not capable of running internet applications:
“The whole project has developed into a monetary tool without any “decentralize the web” spirit.”
Tron’s CEO was often accused of lacking technical expertise. Chen even stated on one occasion:
“The technology platform of TRON was built by me. I certainly know that the real Internet applications cannot function in TRON network at all currently. The TRON ecosystem is still far from commercial applications that users can really apply to.”
However, as the altcoin news reported, the only proof of Chen’s crimes is Reddit and twitter threads. Many of the posts detail the accusations including misappropriation of funds, theft, and bribery. There are hundreds of conspiracies on both sides as people are voting who the real criminal is. Chen is now even launching his own new blockchain project- Volume Network.
Steemit Migrates To Tron’s Blockchain After New Partnership
‘’TRON and Steemit’s development teams will immediately begin working together to bring Steemit and other Steem blockchain based DApps to TRON blockchain and its community of over 20 million users, products, and services.’’Steem’s main blogging app and the Steem token will move to the TRON blockchain in the future and all of the dapps will be able to move to TRON as well. However, it is not clear whether this migration will be voluntary or whether the Steem blockchain will continue to exist in the current form. The news also marks a huge shift in the image of the platform since Steemit was created by Dan Larimer who is the creator of EOS. EOS and Steemit were never related but they were kind of related in public perception which is that it could change if TRON manages to reshape Steem’s image. Steem has a lot to offer and it is best known for its crypto-incentivized blogging app and it supports several other popular dapps as well. The most notable Dapp includes the YouTube-like video sharing platform Dtube, the similar Instagram-like photo-sharing app APPICS and the Steem Monsters trading game. Assuming that the dapp of Steemit migrates to TRON, the partnership will add more than 100 Dapps to the current list of TRON of 700 dapps. It will also add 1 million users to the TRON network with more than 20 million current users and each platform’s daily active user count is lower in practice. TRON also aims to take an active role in the adoption and it will carry out a Steem token giveaway to gain more users and will offer a speedup program to encourage Dapp development. TRON has built its brand by acquiring other high-profile projects, and it acquired BitTorrent in 2018 which led to the creation of the BitTorrent token and a few other projects. The TRON creator Justin Sun was a part of the investors' group that purchased a stake in Poloniex in 2019. Poloniex listed TRON on its exchange and it acquired one of TRON’s own exchanges. TRON’s Steemit acquisition has been underway for a period of time, and the community started to speculate about this possibility in December when Sun hinted a new acquisition.
Tron Doesn’t Have Its Own DeFi Apps, Is It Really The ETH Killer?
TRON Grows On Gambling Dapps And Ethereum On Gaming
"While [Ethereum and Tron] are increasing in 2020 January in comparison to 2019 January, EOS is facing a decrease in daily active users by 61%.’’According to their reports that we now have in our tron news, the firm looked into these blockchains, outlining that the performances of these blockchains can give a clue on the dapp ecosystem's direction and what can be expected this year. While Ethereum did see its bigger growth, TRON grows in its daily active user category. The Justin Sun network was stuck with gambling and high risks dapps and is failing to expand outside this field while EOS is getting dragged down by the network congestion because of the launch of the EIDOS token which was ‘’ a mischevious experiment gone wrong, at worst an aggressive DDOS attack.’’ The daily active unique wallets for TRON increased by more than 33 percent compared to last year and the user base increased by 8 percent only in January, reaching more than 20,000 users. However, the steady increase in active wallets is seen in only one category. TRON has more than 2,600 daily active unique wallets which were followed by RocketGame and WINk. The numbers were dropping in some other categories such as the Games and Marketplaces but also Exchanges:
"Tron as a maturing dapp ecosystem is still failing to expand outside of gambling and high-risk dapps.’’The daily active unique wallets increased by 82 percent between 2019 and 2020 and the number was going from 9,264 to a 30-day trailing average of about 17,000 users on Ethereum. The number of users in the games and marketplaces category, increased by 162 percent since the start of 2019 while My Crypto Heroes is the most popular game. There are other new games that benefit from the large community such as Brave Frontier Heroes. Speaking about the DeFi (decentralized finance) the Tron news reports show that the average daily active unique wallets, increased by 7 percent mainly in the second half of the month, reaching a few 1,400 users. The Exchanges category increased by more than 10 percent in January.
TRON Wakes Up, Now At $0.22 As Bulls Gain Momentum
"Buy my shitcoin."The video sparked plenty of controversy and outrage in the Tron crypto community and the cryptocurrency news on Twitter. However, the backlash now shows that Tron wakes up after it and is posting gains even though cryptocurrencies are very vulnerable to statements like these. However, McCormack ended everything by repeating Sun's words and firing back - in what many see as a marketing strategy to give Tron's token more popularity and spur an influx into Tron's coffers. Some traders even thought that this was pubic promotion of the podcast that McCormack is hosting.
“Tron is a shitcoin. Justin is not coming to the show. He hasn’t leased me a private jet. He has admitted on camera that his protocol is shit. The goal has been achieved,” was the original Twitter post by the podcast host.Today, the Tron news show that TRX jumped above $0.2200 and is safe at this point after trading at a new high against the US dollar at $0.2370. Tron wakes up and there is a major contracting triangle forming with resistance near $0.2200 on the 4-hour chart. If the trend sustains, we can see clearing the $0.2370 levels again.
