State of the DApps Explains Why Tron (TRX) Projects Are Not Listed Within Its Ethos
Via a tweet released earlier today, State of the dApps announced that it was not going to be listing any TRON related offerings on its platform.
The reason for this move, as per the firm, is that the TRON community “does not fit well with their ethos”.
We don't list TRON projects. Main reason being the TRON community doesn't fit well with our ethos. We aren’t convinced by the technology behind TRON, plagiarised white paper, cultural attitude to copycat everything (including our site) and the marketing hype. Change my mind.

Some of the accusations that have been laid out against TRON over the years include:
- The project makes use of insane marketing ploys/propaganda without offering any deliverables.
- TRON’s whitepaper has been time and again accused of plagiarism.
What is State of the Dapps?
As many of our readers might already be aware of, State of the dApps is essentially a “non-profit directory of dApps that have been built atop various blockchain ecosystems”.
The project was initially conceived exclusively for ethereum based projects, however, since the platform has gained mainstream notoriety, it has added a number of other blockchain systems such as Steem, POA and EOS to its native interface.
Since its inception, the directory has grown quite substantially— so much so that it now includes a plethora of other projects related to niche’ areas such as education, job markets, and health.
In addition to all this, it is also worth remembering that ‘State of the Dapps’ is currently the most used reference portal for ETH-based projects in the world.
Last but not least, the core aim of ‘State of the dApps’ is to establish a direct link between dApp creators and users— so that they can both experience financial as well as technical growth in a streamlined fashion.
More on the Matter
Over the course of the past 6-8 months, TRON has been grabbing a lot of eyeballs within the global crypto community. However, a lot of blockchain experts have continually dismissed TRON as being a scam since there is no real market product associated with it.
Additionally, as mentioned earlier, TRON currently has no proof of concept or a working product. Not only that, the project’s white paper is also heavily inspired from other similar platforms and cryptocoins.
At the time of writing this article, TRON is ranked number 10 amongst the top-10 crypto assets in the world today (by total market capitalization). To be even more specific, a single TRX token is currently trading for around USD $0.022— with the currency's total 24-hour trading volume standing at $152 million.
