- Justin Sun Tweeted that TRON transaction volume dwarfs that of ETH and EOS
- TRON is gearing towards BTT’s second round airdrop token distribution
- TRX currently sits at 10th position in CoinMarketCap crypto table
According to March 9, 2019, Tweet by TRON CEO, Justin Sun, the volume of daily transactions on TRX blockchain far surpasses that of Ethereum and EOS. In fact, the total volume of transactions on the TRON platform exceeds the volume of transactions of Ethereum and EOS combined.
TRON > Ethereum + EOS
We are done with Q1 of 2019 and the list of accomplishments TRON has achieved within roughly 90 days is more than enviable. The smart contracts platform saw one of the most high-profile token subscriptions in recent times when it launched its BitTorrent (BTT) token.
On a more recent note, TRON’s charismatic CEO, Justin Sun, posted a Tweet on March 9, 2019, stating that the total volume of transactions on the TRON blockchain far exceeds that of Ethereum and EOS combined.
According to the Tweet, TRON made a mammoth 27 million more transactions than its rivals.

Per sources close to the matter, TRON averages nearly 44 million daily blockchain transactions, while Ethereum and EOS sit at close 11.6 million and 4.4 million, respectively.
It would seem that Sun is leaving nothing to chance in his quest to topple rival Ethereum from the top four cryptocurrencies. Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin and Justin Sun have, in fact, gotten into heated Twitter battles in recent times.
Recent Developments in the TRON Ecosystem
As mentioned earlier, 2019 has been nothing short of spectacular for TRON.
At the very beginning of the year, Sun announced the launch of BitTorrent’s own TRON-based token to facilitate wider DLT adoption.
Later, on January 10, 2019, it came to light how TRON bolstered their higher management team by hiring former US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Attorney as their compliance officer.
The network announced a scheduled hard fork which successfully went live on February 28, 2019. Some of the benefits derived out of the hard fork were institutional ready blockchain platform, multiple signature and account management, better virtual machine safety, and an increase in platform performance by as much as 50 percent.
As an icing to the cake, TRONians will be looking forward to yet another BTT airdrop within the next two days. Misha Lederman, the CEO of Iamdecentralized.org, Tweeted that round two of BTT airdrop has been initiated and TRX holders should expect some BTT in the next couple of days.
