Tron CEO Justin Sun expected that Binance US and Coinbase would consider his projects, TRX, BTT, and WIN, but neither Coinbase nor Binance US have included any of his projects in their recent token listing announcements. Following the updates from the two exchanges, the community urged Sun to get his projects listed on US exchanges.
Coinbase and Binance US Ignore TRON and BitTorrent
Recently, Coinbase announced that it is exploring 8 crypto tokens, including Algorand, Cosmos, Dash, Decred, Ontology, Waves, Matic Network, and Harmony. Binance US also unveiled its plans of listing 30 potential crypto tokens on the US arm of its crypto exchange. It’s worth noting that neither of the two US-based exchanges have considered Justin Sun’s projects. However, the Tron community thinks that their #1 priority is to make TRX trading available for US citizens.
Sun responded to the tweet and promised that 2019 will see “huge progress” for TRON. He tweeted –
Sorry for the delay. We should have more US-based exchanges for sure. Let me work on that. We promise within 2019 the community will see huge progress on that.
In agreement with the community’s sentiments, Sun published another tweet on the subject saying “we will get all these things done with TRON speed”.
Besides making promises on TRX, Sun is quite bullish on his effort to on-board BTT and WIN on US exchanges. He says that US exchanges should include TRX, BTT, and WIN. While TRON is Sun’s own project, he acquired BitTorrent(BTT) in late July 2018. WIN token is the TRON based dApp which was backed by Binance launchpad (Binance IEO) in July this year.
Despite TRX’s dipping value, Sun bets big on TRON this year. At press time, TRX is the 12th largest cryptocurrency in terms of market cap whereas BTT slid down to 45th position with a falling market graph on Coinmarketcap.
Sun Network’s release of version 1.0 as one of Tron’s 100X scalability solutions is also slated for today, i.e August 10.
However, the development has not shown a positive effect on TRX’s price so far. At press time, Tron is trading at $0.02, 6% down from its previous position.
