Justin Sun, in his year-end tweet, recaps 2018 – a year that clearly belonged to Tron in major aspects of growth. While most cryptocurrency projects couldn’t sustain the bear markets and got deviated from the roadmaps, Tron (TRX) was a definite standout.
Tron( TRX) laid a strong foundation for future growth in 2018
2018 was a ruthless year for the cryptos. In fact, some coins were so badly bashed by traders and investors that they were nearly rendered worthless from a price perspective. 2018 was not only about the prices downpour, but it also had positives of real development.
Tron achieved some fantastic results last year and stuck to its roadmap towards growth despite the pessimistic environment. Revisiting the achievements of his project in 2018, the leader of Tron, Justin Sun tweeted,
2018👀: Main Net launch, more transaction volume vs ETH, more accts vs EOS, 1M users in 183 days, 80+ DApps in 60 days, top 10 crypto. 2019⏩: Top 4, larger ecosystem vs ETH, @BitTorrent on the #blockchain, 🌎 largest decentralized ecosystem. Happy New Year & thank you! $TRX

In his tweet, Justin points out the key milestone that Tron has achieved in 2018. Not just in terms of the development of the project but Tron was successful in terms of making strategic progress towards its long-term goals also.
In 2018, Tron achieved independence from Ethereum and moved onto its MainNet. This was just the start for Tron as the project never looked back again. In the 183 days of going live on its MainNet, as reported by Justin, Tron was able to achieve;
- more transactions volume as compared to Ethereum
- more accounts as compared to EOS
- over 1 million registered users in little over six months of going live on MainNet
- more than 80 Dapps in 60 days of its TVM (Dapp ecosystem) launch
- a place in the list of 10 largest cryptocurrencies
While these feats spell out the hard work of team Tron, Justin Sun doesn’t want to stop here. The crypto leader has already laid out his plans for 2019. Sun wants to achieve the following in this year:
- break into the top 4 cryptocurrencies list
- make Tron’s ecosystem larger than Ethereum
- bring BitTorrent to the blockchain
- make Tron the largest decentralized ecosystem
Well, the targets engraved by Justin are steep, but the way Tron’s team has performed in 2018, it looks it might just be achievable.
Will Tron be able to scale newer heights and achieve targets laid down by Justin? Do let us know your views on the same.
