In an interview with a co-founder of Innovesta, Adi Karmon Scope, Director of Global Communications of the Tron platform Cliff Edwards said that Tron is not trying to reinvent the wheel but rather is trying to do things its rivals EOS and Ethereum do, but way better.
Also, TRX has moved XLM from spot #8.
Is Tron’s strategy similar to that of Apple?
Edwards compared Tron with Apple, saying that Steve Jobs did little to actually innovate the industry, rather he was just trying to produces phones and computers in a much better way than its competitors. Apple created more powerful software and a better ecosystem, believes Edwards.
As per him, Tron is following the same path by acquiring BitTorrent and intending to collaborate with them and launch BTT coins.
Edwards also adds that Tron wants to blend utility coins with the huge user base behind BitTorrent to raise interest in crypto among regular users.
Their major goal for 2019, as per Edwards, is to surpass EOS and Ethereum and to start collaborating with top content makers, such as Netflix, Amazon and Facebook.
The approaching BitTorrent token sale
Edwards pointed out that the approaching distribution of BTT coins by BitTorrent will by no means be an ICO but merely a crowdfunding project with the assistance of Binance Launchpad, also a recently started project by Changpeng Zhao. On this platform, Binance allows promising projects to raise funds from the 10 mln traders on the exchange.
