Tron Community Considers Bakkt Platform Should Consider TRX Cryptocurrency Coin
The Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) is working in order to launch the so-called Bakkt platform that promises to bring new institutional and traditional investors. The launching for this platform was planned for December 2018. However, Kelly Loeffler, CEO a Bakkt, released a blog post in which she announced that the launch date for Bakkt was moved for January 24, 2019.
Amidst this situation, the Tron community is asking Bakkt to add support for other digital assets such as TRX.
A few days ago, Bakkt tweeted,
Question: We've been asked if we will add other digital currencies
Answer: We’ll consider additional contracts as the landscape evolves and as we receive additional customer feedback about what they want and need

This generated excitement among the Tron community, which is very active in social media. Misha Lederman, the co-founder of IAmDecentralized, uploaded a letter that the Tron Community is sending to Bakkt.

He then mentioned that community members can download the letter and send it to Bakkt’s email for them to consider adding TRX’s support. The letter is very clear and it explains what is Tron, what Tron can be used for and a general overview about it.
The conclusion of the letter says that Tron was able to outperform several virtual currencies in the market in the last few months after launching their mainnet. Moreover, they say that Bakkt’s customers will benefit from this listing.
The letter reads as follows:
“Therefore, adding TRON to the Bakkt platform would benefit Bakkt’s customers as they will be able to buy, sell, trade, store and spend one of the most promising global digital assets and thus be part of the most ambitious crypto project to date.”
At the time of writing, Tron is one of the largest virtual currencies in the market, even when during the last hours it has experienced a hard drop as the rest of the market. Tron has a market capitalization of $767 million dollars and each coin can be purchased for $0.0116 dollars.
