Buy Tron


What is TRON?

TRON (TRX) is a Top 20 Cryptocurrency whose aim is to ‘decentralise’. Faster than Bitcoin (3 - 6 transactions per second or TPS) and Ethereum at (25 TPS), Tron’s claimed 2,000 TPS makes it a fast and efficient blockchain platform.

TRON is geared towards providing a user-pays, decentralised-content platform that anyone can use. 

In 2018, the Tron Foundation bought online file-sharing company BitTorrent for $120 million (USD) to accelerate its commercial aims in content and media. Following the acquisition, it also launched the BitTorrent Token (BTT) on the Tron blockchain network - its first native utility token or 'TRC-10’ token. 

If Tron can drive real-world adoption and usage of its TRX token in media, content, and gaming, the Tron network could have a bright future.

What is the price of TRX? 

TRX was one of the most popular coins traded during the 2017/2018 cryptocurrency bull market, going from $0.002 (USD) at the start of December 2017 to $0.182 on January 8th, 2018. 

Aside from a significant rise at the end of April 2018, it has mostly been trading between $0.01 and $0.04 since June 2018. 

The TRX price changes continuously, as it is traded 24/7 on major exchanges (including Uphold.com).
