Justin Sun Says TRON Will Be Top 4 Coin in 2019 and Looks to Outpace Ethereum Ecosystem Growth
TRON, led by its founder Justin Sun is always on a mission to make their platform better, be it through upgrades, acquisitions, collaboration and much more. It is obvious that the company will have ambitious goals for this new year. Let’s take a closer look at two of their most ambitious goals; TRON to become the 4th largest crypto by market capitalization and to have an ecosystem larger than that of Ethereum.
Popular crypto influencer Tommy Mustache, sums up Sun’s ambions in his Tweet. He thinks that Sun being able to accmpalish so much as such a young age makes him a force within the community to reckon with.
Tron had reached all the milestones it had set out to achieve for 2018.
Here are Justin predictions for 2019. One of them is to take Tron to the top 4 ranking on CMC by the end of 2019.
I will be happy with being 5th or 6th, but will not complain about being 4th for sure. 😁 pic.twitter.com/EIcVfYga6y

TRON At Number 4
Even though TRON’s prices do not reflect the work it has done, 2019 is anticipated to be the year when the coin starts to blossom. The groundwork and infrastructure to support a rise in valuation seem to be in place, now it seems to be a matter of not if but when.
TRON traversed from being the 43rd biggest crypto to the 11th biggest in under a year, from October 2017 to October 2018, however, the journey it has to make to climb on to the top of the Altcoin list is way more difficult. All the factors won’t be in control of them, it will depend on how the rest of the coins on the top fare.
Although the situation seems to favor TRON. Two of the top 10 coins, Bitcoin C, sh and Bitcoin SV are in a dicey situation. EOS, Litecoin, and Stellar, even though are doing alright are not been able to create as much buzz as TRON.
Have A Bigger Ecosystem Than Ethereum
The tense relationship between Vitalik Buterin and Justin Sun stretches back to the origins of TRON. In the past, Buterin has extensively criticized Sun’s blatant plagiarism in TRON’s whitepaper, taking excerpts directly from IPFS and FileCoin, and then using code without attribution.
In June 2018 Sun had given a list of reasons for why he thinks his product is better than Buterin’s.
Why #TRON is better than #ETH: 1. 2000TPS vs. 25TPS 2. Popular sovereignty of token vs. Authoritarian rules 3. 100M Dapp users vs. Thousands 4. None fees vs. High fees 5. Coin burn vs. No coin burn 6. $2B bonus vs. Zero 7. High scalability vs Poor scalability #TRX $TRX pic.twitter.com/W7jEjmx0wp

Although Ethereum has had a bad year in general, analysts are bullish on the product in the anticipation of its upcoming hardfork. The competition will be close and one of the biggest news in the coming year.
