Tron Offers New Use Cases For Their Token, Including Amazon And Starbucks, On Bitcoin Superstore
TRON has not been in the industry for very long, but they are making sure that the industry will not soon let them go. They have decided recently to work on the use cases for their token, and they have managed to find a place on the Bitcoin Superstore. With that change, users of TRON tokens will now be able to pay at 200,000 different stores, which includes big names like Amazon and Starbucks.
Bitcoin Superstore is based out of Florida, and they offer high-quality customer service and the ability to purchase almost any product they can think of from some of the biggest retailers in the industry. Along with Amazon and Starbucks, the marketplace includes any retailer that does not charge a membership fee, like Google Express and Walmart.com.
While there is a service fee of 2% on any of the purchase made, that percentage is significantly smaller than the majority of websites that charge for shipping. Still, they manage to keep up with the two-day shipping speeds that most of these companies offer. Previously, the company could only accept Bitcoin, but the rising popularity of other tokens has made it possible for them to also use Bitcoin Cash, Dash, Ethereum, Litecoin, TRON, and XRP.
The use of the Floridian cryptocurrency store is one of the biggest efforts made so far in the industry to make the use of digital assets with mainstream purchases. Now, the company has opened the floor to suggestions for other tokens to add, with a goal of a new coin every week. Tron’s payment platform, Seedit, has already enables them to use P2P payments on Twitter and other social media places, but the Superstore has a much bigger user base to pull from right now.

The whole point of cryptocurrency is to evolve. Prices may be rising, and the world has only just begun accepting and regulating the use of it for investments alone. Some consumers have all but forgotten about the fact that the use case of these tokens is their purpose in the first place, which has always been on the mind of the founders at Tron. Even the creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi, said,
“What is needed is an electronic payment system based on cryptographic proof instead of trust, allowing any two willing parties to transact directly with each other without the need for a trusted third party.”
Basically, when Bitcoin began, the creators wanted to find a mutual level that every person could use for purchases, without the restrictions that come with an individual country’s currency. That created the foundation of the crypto industry as a whole, even though it has been modified into a way to basically play the digital stock market. Based on the recent announcement of the Bitcoin Superstore’s addition of Tron, this reminder will most likely boost the performance and the use of Tron.
This step, just like every step that Tron makes, takes the token a step closer to being accepted for mainstream use. With 200,000 stores available that can be accessed by crypto users, experts would expect the price of TRX to move, even if the increase is minimal. However, so far, the token has not moved at all, but there is still plenty of time.
