Tron is the fourth crypto with the largest growth in 2018. Clearly, this one was a very positive year for Tron. The company released its mainnet earlier in 2018 and it also launched the Tron Virtual Machine (TVM) allowing developers to easily deploy dApps on its network.
At the same time, the Tron Foundation acquired BitTorrent and it has also released a new ICO to sell the so-called BitTorrent Token (BTT) that will be used on top of the BitTorrent platform.

XRP continues to grow as well. After becoming the second largest digital asset in the market, the number of followers has also increased.
