Tron 2018 vs Tron 2019: This Year’s Eventful TRX Coin Network Progress and Future Outlook
The Tron platform remains one of the most polarizing projects in the crypto space. Depending on who you ask, Tron is either a revolutionary web 3.0 disruptor or vaporware that has accumulated market value through clever PR and marketing, with very little opinion sitting in the middle of the two streams.
Today the Tron network is an up-and-running blockchain that verifies transactions using a functioning, non-disruptive Proof-of-Authority consensus model where block publishers are decided through community voting. Its purchase of BitTorrent and its partnership with Pornhub have delivered it approximately 120 million potential users a day.
The progression of TRON in 2018 has been fascinating, as it even managed to spend some time within the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market cap. In 2019, TRON will see a huge boost to its security and privacy, two of the most prominent issues surrounding all cryptocurrencies in the markets at the moment.
TRON In 2018
Just a look at the graph above shows the volatility TRON experienced in 2018. Although it was marked with many events. They saw the launch of new products like TestNet, MainNet, token swap, token burns, Representatives election, the purchase of BitTorrent, and most importantly, the Project Atlas.
TRON In 2019
As the ongoing crypto winter hovers around icy lows, tokens like TRX and their attached projects have a new opportunity to lead the next crypto bull run with fundamentals, not speculation.
The Tron foundation has a viable use case with the soon to be launched monetized torrent protocol, a hungry social community that remains optimistic about the blockchain's prospects, and a newly launched smart-contract platform upon which Dapps and ICOs are starting to be built. Thus TRX and its backers are ready with lessons learned and new tools for when the bear market finally turns.
Tron has continued the trend of attaching itself to recognizable brands, organizations and individuals, securing basketball superstar Kobe Bryant as the keynote speaker for its upcoming annual conference, niTRON, due to be held in January 2019 in San Francisco.
We can assume that there will be a special focus on project Atlas throughout 2019. Although there are a lot of dApps listed on the network, many think that the real production od dApp will start in 2019.
