Just 2 weeks back, Tron Foundation joined hands with Seedit and now has reached a record high. With #OperationTronStorm, Tron community has tipped celebrities like Kanye West, Snoop Dogg to even the Pope along with people unaware of crypto to spread the word about Tron.
This has resulted in over 10 million TRX being tipped as shared by Seedit on Twitter:
We’re truly grateful to have a wonderful community of supporters! Thanks to everyone who helped make this momentous achievement possible. 🙏#GoSeedit @sesameseed_SR @justinsuntron @Tronfoundation #TRON $TRX #cryptotwitter #Crypto pic.twitter.com/pWW826bQBn

As pointed by a Tron enthusiast heyimeder1 on Reddit,
“That’s the equivalent of $200,000 USD at a price of $0.02. This may not seem like much, but if you are tipping people who are not familiar with crypto, I guarantee you it will have a lasting effect. Let’s continue our mission of educating the masses. Good job everyone!”
This will not lead to Tron awareness but will also further lead to crypto awareness as shared by another Redditor Mfwow,
“As a TRX hodler and blockchain enthusiast, I believe this isn’t just for TRX’s sake but also for cryptocurrency awareness in general, I myself have tipped a few people that aren’t interested or are skeptical about blockchain in general, in hopes that they will join the future as soon as possible, to the moon am I right? “
CoinPayments integration & TronChat launch
Another big news came into the form of CoinPayments adding Tron (TRX) to its platform. This will allow more than 2.2. Million businesses and users of the online payment processor to use and accept TRX as a payment method.
CoinPayment has its clients in over 180 countries and supports over 600 altcoins while providing services like cold storage and plugins for payment features and merchant tools.
