This year has been successful so far for Justin Sun and the Tron network. Tron has outperformed Ethereum and EOS by the amount of dApps, transactions per second and new accounts set up by users on the platform.

The platform’s CEO regularly posts updates and other good news on his Twitter account, producing responses full of delight from the Tron community.

Leaving Bitcoin behind, not in market price, though

On May 9, Justin Sun broke some more good news on his Twitter page – Tron has surpassed Bitcoin by the overall number of transactions. Tron has left behind all the work Bitcoin network has done within ten years and did it within slightly over than 300 days.

Still, if we look at the, Tron is currently on position #11, while Bitcoin all these years has not moved from #1. The price difference cannot be compared either, as well as the trading volume.

Besides, institutional investors are getting more and more attracted to Bitcoin as an excellent, though still pretty volatile, investment option, ‘digital gold’ as they call it.

Recent bold forecasts from crypto analysts promise that within a few years, Bitcoin price will hit from $100,000 to $400,000. John McAfee insists that BTC will be worth not less than $1 mln by the end of 2021.
