BitGuild’s Bitizens Gaming dApp Finds a Home on TRON (TRX) Network After Leaving Ethereum
On November 25, Justin Sun made an appeal to Ethereum developers to move to the TRON network via Twitter. In his tweet, he went on to give the benefits of making the move. According to him, one benefit is that there is no gas on Tron. Besides that, Ethereum projects were compatible with Tron. There is also the fact that there is no migration cost. He also mentioned that developers could grow their token value by 100% plus high liquidity with the move.
Bitizens, and the world of Bitropolis is moving to a new home on the TRON network.
To facilitate this transfer, we’ll be taking the portal and the Bitizens game offline for maintenance. (1/2) pic.twitter.com/BtUEYQI0LN

The Offer Has Been Well Received
One project that took up the offer is the BitGuild project, which is moving the Bitizens DApp from Ethereum to Tron. The project team announced that during the move, the portal and the Bitizens game would be offline during the shift. They appealed to the users to be patient with them during the move. At the end of it, they promised that it would ensure a stronger, better, and more vibrant future for all.
Why BitGuild May Have Decided To Move To Tron
The BitGuild announcement did not go into detail as to why they had decided to make the move to Tron. However, Tron has been showing exponential growth since they launched the mainnet in the middle of 2018. Once they activate their Tron Virtual Machine in October, the potential for Tron became limitless. This has proven quite attractive to developers seeking to create DApps on Tron.
A unique feature of this Virtual Machine is that it is built to work with the Solidity programming on which Ethereum is written. Thus, it interacts seamlessly with the Ethereum Virtual Machine. Thus, experienced developers will find it easy to shift their projects from Ethereum to Tron. The 1,119 smart contract active on Tron thus far is proof that the shift is quite easy.
Another reason why developers might be moving to this network is that Tron can process more than 2000 transactions a second. This is about 80 times higher that Ethereum can manage. At maximum capacity, it means that Tron can handle 172,800,000 transactions per day. This is quite attractive to a developer who is thinking about the future.
Tron Is Already Winning
On TronScan.org, it shows that Ethereum has processed about 600,000 transactions in the last 24 hours. This is meager compared to the 1.94 million transactions that have taken place on Tron within the same period.
Another draw to Tron might be the fact that it plans to integrate the privacy protocol known as zk-SNARKS. When this happens, there is no doubt that most DApps will prefer it compared to Ethereum. The Tron Foundation also has a DApp accelerator plan that will ensure it has the top DApp developers in its corner in the future.
The Bitizens Dapp shift to Tron might be a sign of things to come. It is especially so in the current bear market where every slight advantage can give developers an edge over the competition.
