Key Developments

Tron has been upgraded to version 3.5, launching several new features including account permission system, multi-signature, and more.

Main and backup features, as well as the entire network’s stability, were enhanced during the update. The developer community had key milestones of its own.

The infrastructure for TronGrid v2 has been completed and stabilized. Tron’s walled passed the Google Play review.

The developer community completed monitoring & alerting and private key management on ATLAS Exchange.

Tron’s native token TRX was listed on a number of exchanges including Delta Direct and BitMax.io.

Tron’s educational division Tron 101 released three lessons with a focus on side chains, the Lightning Network, and blockchain’s tamper-proof feature.

Tron’s Dapps are now supported by Bitpie wallet v3.9.1 which is now ready for download and use.

The Tron community is growing both in the number of users and followers on social media platforms. The Tron Foundation now officially has one million followers on Facebook, a clear indicator that the ecosystem is growing.

“This account will continue to serve as an important platform to share information such as Tron’s technology development and global strategy,” reads an excerpt from the report.

The Foundation is ready to welcome more followers on the social media platform as it eyes further growth.

Tron did an Ask-Me-Anything (AMA) session with cryptocurrency exchange Binance.

The founder and CEO of Tron Justin Sun who is on the news or Twitter on most occasions was interviewed by a Chinese media agency in which he talked about the need to encourage those defending justice.

Sun came out in support of Zhou Yu, a Chinese national who saved his neighbor from being raped but ended up having a physical conflict with the perpetrator.  Yu was detained for 13 days as a result of his actions.

Sun said that Yu deserves compensation of 100,000 RMB (nearly $15,000) for his detention and pledged to offer support worth tens of million RMB.

BitTorrent’s BTT Fine Run Continues

Tron breathed new life into BitTorrent after acquiring the file-sharing protocol in a deal worth more than $100 million last year.

After raising $7 million in its less-than-a-minute initial coin offering (ICO), BitTorrent’s BTT token has now been listed by more than 32 exchanges including Binance, Huobi, Bitfinex, Bittrex, OKEx, etc.

The Ledger Nano S BTT limited edition, a new custody solution,  allows BTT holders to secure their tokens. Ledger is one of the most respected names in cryptocurrency security.

Huobi launched its second promotional BTT phase in which BTT traders will share 100 million BTT tokens.
