After its acquisition of BitTorrent, TRON has recently stepped up its game again, acquiring the very first global blockchain app store: CoinPlay.

TRON is dedicated to building the infrastructure for a truly decentralized Internet. CoinPlay positions itself as a blockchain application store that aims to offer the most comprehensive, suitable and updated blockchain apps. Currently, popular blockchain apps are often hard to find at conventional app stores, and it is difficult to screen the source for safe download. TRON and CoinPlay shares the same vision: providing better user experience for blockchain practitioners in the industry.

Since the beginning, the TRON ecosystem has achieved tremendous growth and gained significant momentum. One of the biggest progresses is its successful acquisition of BitTorrent and including it into the ecosystem of TRON. With BitTorrent, TRON has become the world’s largest decentralized Internet ecosystem. This latest acquisition of CoinPlay has also enriched TRON, further advancing the development of the blockchain community.

CoinPlay brings together a wide range of blockchain Apps and DApps, providing one-click downloads of a variety of blockchain software and games, as well as practical guides, browser navigation, ratings, and indices of major currencies. In the future, it will support multi-platform multi-currency real-time quotes, multi-platform transaction volume/transaction price, and GitHub query. It not only provides a comprehensive use of graphic tutorials for new users, but also includes high-quality content of the crypto industry, links to more high-quality projects and cryptocurrencies, and has also obtained strategic investment from well-known investment institutions and capitals.

According to Justin Sun, founder of TRON, “TRON recently completed its MainNet upgrade v. 3.5. As a blockchain-based entertainment ecosystem, we will continue focusing on content and entertainment. The recent acquisition of CoinPlay aims to better serve the blockchain industry. The year 2019 will be the year of exponential growth for the TRON ecosystem.”

Recently, TRON has announced its partnership with Tether to issue USDT that anchors the USD with the rate of 1:1, offering attractive incentives for early adopters, totalling the equivalent of 100 million RMB, to get existing USDT holders to transition to TRC20-based USDT and advance the potential of decentralized finance. “We believe that with a faster, more economic and concrete stablecoin payment experience, more ordinary people will start to pay attention and use DAPPs. In addition, we will offer attractive incentives for early adopters, totalling the equivalent of 100 million RMB, to get existing USDT holders to transition to TRC20-based USDT and advance the potential of decentralized finance.”
