The Tron community, who call themselves ‘Tronics’, has been disappointed about the difficulty of trading Tron’s cryptocurrency, TRX in the United States.
Last week, Binance published a list of the various cryptocurrencies it plans on listing on its new trading platform, Binance US. An online content platform for Tronics called TronSpark pointed out that Tron was not on the list. In a tweet, TronSpark tagged Justin Sun, the CEO and founder of Tron, stating that they need to work on getting listed on Coinbase or Binance in the USA. These are the two biggest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world.
In the tweet, TronSpark stated:
This is the Tron community’s #1 priority right now. Based on feedback, big investors are very concerned. Don’t want to lose them.
Justin Sun responded to this message, apologising for the delay, and agreeing that more US-based exchanges need to offer TRX on their platforms. Furthermore, he promised that the community will “see huge progress” in this area within 2019.
Nevertheless, TRX is not completely impossible to trade in the United States. Bittrex and eToro, both of which are trading platforms, have listed TRX.
Tron is a controversial cryptocurrency partly due to the trouble that its CEO, Justin Sun, always seems to be in. Many believe that it is an overhyped controversy, and which will not increase in valuation over the coming years. Currently, Tron is ranked #13 among all cryptocurrencies in terms of total market capitalisation with 1 TRX worth $0.02. One Twitter user pointed this out, and TronSpark responded by saying Tron has built more on its platform than other blockchains, having the necessary userbase to support it. According to TronSpark, “it is just a matter of time” until Tron becomes increasingly valuable, reflecting the Tronics community sentiment.
