The other day, John McAfee, a prominent crypto figure and a candidate for the upcoming US presidential elections, has announced his fondness towards a Tron-based platform for sharing content – VibraVid.

Tron is becoming popular not only for TRX

Tron rushed off to get to the top since its appearance in the summer of 2017. A year later it migrated from the Ethereum network to its own mainnet and then later launched the Tron Virtual Machine.

By the very end of 2018, its native token TRX managed to enter the top ten list of digital currencies on Coinmarketcap. Later still, it moved to position 8.

This startup is believed to be a direct rival to the centralized YouTube platform and the ones similar to it.

The new platform intends to launch its own token – BeatzCoin (BTZC) so that customers and content producers can use it for performing any actions on VibraVid, as well as selling their content – videos and songs – to consumers directly.

This is how McAfee described it in the comment thread.
