Tron is one of the largest and most important blockchain projects in the cryptocurrency market. The network has over a million daily transactions and mover than 600,000 wallets. Nevertheless, there is a lack of decentralized application usage in the network. In general, there are no more than 3,000 active users per day.
With this accelerator program, the intention is to bring new interested users and individuals to build and deploy decentralized applications on the Tron network. Tron wants to become one of the most important companies and blockchain networks for customer use. Earlier this year, Tron purchased and integrated BitTorrent with the intention to build the largest decentralized platform in the market.
At the time of writing, Tron (TRX) is the 11th largest cryptocurrency and blockchain in the market with a market capitalization of $1.23 billion dollars. Moreover, each coin can be purchased for $0.0187 dollars.
