Tron [TRX] has seen a significant number of updates and developments from a technical point of view, as well as from the perspective of mainstream adoption. This rampant increase can be mainly attributed to Justin Sun, Chief Executive Officer of the Tron Foundation.
In a recent interview with BlockTV, Sun spoke about the upcoming BitTorrent token [BTT] airdrop, the Opera browser integrations and what is in store for 2019. In his words,
“The integration of BitTorrent and Tron was a landmark move because it brought in more than a 100 million users to our network. This is what we intend to do with the Opera integration as well, with the aim of pushing the ecosystem towards Web 4.0.”
The Opera team will allow users to access games and DApps based on Tron’s blockchain technology. The highlight of the integration is that users will not require a third party browser and wallet integration to use it.
Krystian Kolondra, EVP at Opera, stated,
“TRON is a popular, quickly developing blockchain with a swiftly growing dApp ecosystem. We are happy to open our browser to it….By opening products to multiple blockchains, we are accelerating the mainstream adoption of Web 3.”
The Tron CEO further opined that 2019 would be the year of the stablecoins and cryptocurrencies established by mainstream players like JP Morgan and Facebook. According to him, stablecoins are definitely a smart move, with Sun even claiming that Facebook could swallow the market. Sun added,
“When we see institutions like Facebook entering the field, we know that the market is maturing. If done right, the influence of these big companies will ensure that the industry progresses in the right direction.”
Tron was in the news recently after the 11th ranked cryptocurrency surpassed $1 billion in terms of 24-hour trading volume,
