Justin Sun, the founder of the Tron Foundation said that Tron (TRX) will reach 200 decentralized applications (dApps) in the near future. Tron is currently one of the largest digital assets in the space and it has been releasing different projects during the last few months.
Tron wants to increase its presence in the market and compete against Ethereum (ETH) and other platforms such as EOS. The number of dApps deployed on the Tron Network has just crossed the 100-mark and the intention is to keep growing. In a recent Tweet, Justin Sun mentioned that the Tron will be breaking 200 dApps very soon.

In the tweet written by Justin Sun, he mentioned that there are important things going to be developed with the Tron accelerator and with the next event called niTROn. This event is going to take place between January 17 and January 18 in San Francisco. At the event will be present important figures such as Kobe Bryant and Justin Sun himself.
At the time of writing, there are 133 different dApps, according to data provided by dAppReview.
According to Justin Sun, the number of dApps in the Tron network is expected to increase in the future with the Tron Accelerator plan that has $1 million in prizes for the best competitors. The Tron Accelerator was launched back in December and it will be awarding developers that want to create decentralized applications on top of Tron.
The first, second and third winners will have the possibility to be present at the NiTRON summit that will start the next week in San Francisco.
These developments are very important because Tron was accused of not being able to support the transactions needed by the newly created BitTorrent Token (BTT). Additionally, the market is in a bear trend and Tron continues to expand even when the prices remain down.
