However, now Tron has taken a hike of about 16 percent from yesterday’s $0.0206 to today’s highest at $0.0239 after Its founder and CEO Justin Sun announced the partnership with an industry giant.
Could the industry giant be Baidu?
As we reported yesterday, Tron is enjoying gains on the anticipation of the upcoming partnership with tens of billions of dollars valuation company. At 11th spot, Tron has a market cap of $1.54 billion while managing the daily trading volume of $175 million. At the time of writing, Tron has been trading at $0.0234 while surging over 6 percent.
If we take a look at the past 5 days, from $0.0281, it went down to $0.0206 in tandem with the entire market. However, the announcement of the partnership resulted in a hike of about 16 percent from $0.0206 yesterday to today’s highest at $0.0239.
According to the English version of the Chinese media channel, Tron’s partner is Baidu stating,
“#Tron to Cooperate with China’s IT Giant #Baidu. The Tron team told CoinNess.com that a partnership had been confirmed between Tron and China’s IT giant Baidu, which will be officially revealed by Baidu Cloud next week.”

It is the 2nd largest search engine in the world while holding over 76 percent market share of China’s search engine market. Baidu’s market cap has been about $99 billion as of May 2018. If Baidu is the partner, it will be a good thing for the progress of Tron and its investors.
