Tron Burns 49bln. ERC20 Tokens, Binance Announces TRX Competition
Tron (TRX), whose mainet was officially launched on June 25, has issued an update regarding the mainnet. According to the announcement, the mainnet runs smoothly, with around 493 nodes around the world and the token migration (from Ethereum to its own mainnet) is still in progress.
The first batch of ~49 billion ERC 20 tokens was burnt (sent to an address with no access to anyone). Notably Tron burnt 1 billion of its own coin (TRX) to celebrate ‘Independence Day’, a term coined to refer migration from Ethereum network. Contrary to expectations, TRX coin burn did not create any spike in the price.
Notably, Pornhub, the adult website with more than 85 million visitors, has announced its interest to accept subscription payments in Tron (TRX). Furthermore, Tron is also accepted by Brazzers (a Canadian adjult website with more than 35 million monthly visitors) and TrafficJunky, a Canadian internet marketing company.
