- Last month it was BTT drop, now its free cash airdrop
- 2019 has been green for TRON
- TRX transaction volume exceeds its rivals’ Ethereum and EOS by far
On March 13, TRON’s founder, Justin Sun, went a notch further with his genius marketing strategies by announcing his plans to offer a $20m free cash airdrop. This airdrop is a way of celebrating the success of BTT airdrop that sold out in a matter of hours.
TRON has had significant growth in price when compared with other cryptocurrencies. This announcement made via Justin’s tweet has caused mixed emotions in the crypto community. Some people presume that this is a real sign that Sun is running a hype scheme while others disregard the legitimacy of TRON’s crypto existence as long as there is free money involved.
However, this seems to be a strategy for TRON to gain more followers and drive blockchain adoption as evident in the tweet.
To celebrate #BTT & #USDT–#TRON success, I am planning a $20m free cash airdrop. Good news-it's coming, bad news-I may decide to give away more! First, I will randomly pick 1 winner for a #Tesla up until 3/27! To apply, follow me and RT this tweet! Simple! #Blockchain pic.twitter.com/wFyzwtB3ur

The Historical BTT Airdrop
The BTT airdrop was claimed to be the biggest and the longest to have ever happened. It was supported by wallets such as TRON wallet and Trust wallet as well as crypto exchanges in the likes of Binance, Bitpie, among others.
TRON’s users were required to possess TRX tokens and a wallet that supports them to benefit from the airdrop. Each user was expected to get 0.11 for every TRX token they owned.
The Recent Hard Fork Upgrades
TRON hard-forked recently in a bid to get its systems ready for institutional use.
The hard fork brought new features such as account management options and multi-signature option which are critical for institutional operations. The hard fork also improved the performance to avoid scalability issues since TRON has been gaining more users and more dApps are being built on the platform.
TRX Transaction Volume
Sun announced in a tweet on 9th March 2019, that the number of daily transactions on TRX blockchain by far exceeded those of ethereum and EOS. As a matter of fact, the volume of transactions on TRX exceeded those on Ethereum and EOS put together. The daily blockchain transactions on TRX were about 44 million with ethereum posting 11.6 million and EOS posting 4.4 million transactions.

TRON has proven itself when it comes to business and strategic planning in the crypto space; this has seen it have the best start this year compared to its rivals.
Now rumors are whirling around about a probable partnership between Tron and ChainLink. Such a collaboration would benefit TRON’s ecosystem and allow inclusion of major applications to be built on its systems without compromising its security mechanisms.
