After 6 Months Launching, TRON Reaches 1 Million User Accounts

By Chris Torres | December 26, 2018

According to data revealed, on Dec 23, the number of accounts of Blockchain protocol TRON (TRX) has passed one million, as executives continue their criticism of Ethereum (ETH).

From TRON Blockchain side, Misha Lederman, co-founder of the cryptocurrency’s spin-off project IAmDecentralized.org has uploaded the statistics to social media to confirm the information: the network now features over one million addresses. At the moment, TRON seeks to become the go-to ecosystem for developers seeking to create decentralized applications (DApps).

Known for publicly criticizing Ethereum, which constitutes TRON’s main opponent, CEO Justin Sun predicted a “slow implosion” for the altcoin.

Commenting on the address landmark, Lederman suggested that the increase speed of TRON is also significantly higher than ETH.

“In comparison, (Ethereum) reached 1 million accounts on Jan 22, in 542 days or 18 months since (the Ethereum) Mainnet Launch,” he wrote.

Responses highlighted the fact that Ethereum had built its user base when cryptocurrency interest was marginal compared with current conditions.

Others mentioned that despite the growth, TRX’s $0.02 price tag paled in comparison to ETH/USD, which even after a 90 percent decline the from all-time high, maintained a value of around $73.

TRX had shown strong daily growth this week before a correction across cryptocurrency markets saw the token lose 15 percent in the 24 hours to press time, while ETH dropped 12.6 percent in the same period.
