TRON (TRX) has been one of the most popular cryptocurrencies in recent years. The project has achieved a tremendous amount of success in less than a year, and while the first birthday of its MainNet is approaching, TRON certainly continues to impress to this day.
With that said, its price is still noticeably low, and many would agree that the project is heavily undervalued. The low price even allowed other projects to push it out of the top 10 list, with TRX currently being the 11th largest cryptocurrency by market cap. However, it is likely that TRON will not remain undervalued forever, and that its price might soon see a surge that its entire community has been waiting for, for a long time now.
Why TRX might see growth soon
As many undoubtedly know, TRON is a lot more than just a cryptocurrency. It has developed a massive ecosystem, which offers a development platform for coins, smart contracts, and dApps. It also acquired BitTorrent last year for its Project Atlas, which will allow torrent users to earn crypto through participation in content sharing.
For this purpose, it also launched BitTorrent (BTT) token, which saw its launch on January 28, 2019 on Binance Launchpad. This was dubbed the most successful ICO in history at the time, although several coins launched since then have broken its record.
In addition, TRON also has its own DEX, and the number of its dApps is growing fast. Due to the fact that transactions within the TRON network are much faster and cheaper than on Ethereum, a lot of dApp users, as well as developers, have migrated to TRON. Because of this, the coin is now considered to be one of the potential ‘Ethereum killers,’ and it likely has a lot more potential to pull it off than any other project out there.
While Ethereum’s developers don’t appear to be too concerned about this, claiming that ETH’s focus was, is, and always will be on smart contracts — TRON itself approaches its 1000th smart contract at a rapid pace. It already managed to break several records regarding transaction volumes, beating Ethereum in this area as well.
In other words, TRON is popular, useful, and apparently, loved by the community. It also made some strong partners and gained influential supporters along the way. The largest crypto exchange by market cap, Binance, for example, announced its support for TRX and BTT earlier this year. Not only that but one of the most popular browsers around the world, Opera, recently teamed up with TRON and added TRX to its list of supported coins.
Of course, TRON had some issues along the way, such as the recent decision of its co-founder and CTO to leave and even threaten to sue TRON CEO, Justin Sun. However, there is a lot more good, positive achievements than negatives, and the project has mostly managed to avoid major scandals.
Even so, its massive total supply of 99 billion, as well as its circulating supply of 66 billion prevent the coin from achieving great prices. But, that is fine, as one of its goals is to make microtransactions quick and easy. However, that does not mean that TRX price will remain where it is forever. Even now, TRON is seeing gains, rising by 5.06% against the USD. Further, it is also performing well against BTC, rising by 3.70% in the last 24 hours.
While its price recently dropped below a major level at $0.030, it appears to be well on its way back, and many are investing in the coin now, while it is at a ‘discount.’ Additionally, Justin Sun recently predicted that TRON will climb back to the top 10 list within a month and that BTT will surpass around 20 other currencies during the same period. While it is unknown if this is just hype-building or if Sun knows something that others do not, but TRON network’s coins do have a way of achieving much in a very short period.
