A few hours ago, Justin Sun announced via twitter that TRON (TRX) would be launching an accelerator plan geared towards encouraging the development of DApps on the network. His tweet went on to state the following:
This industry-leading plan,
#TRON accelerator plan will empower developers and start-ups to develop #Dapps based on TRON protocol, one of the most active protocols with a daily transaction volume of over 1 million and more than 600,000 wallets. #TRX $TRX
About the Accelerator Plan
As stated by Justin, the plan will empower developers and start-ups to develop DApps on the Tron protocol. The Tron network has continued to exceed expectations with the amount of daily transactions it can handle as well as the number of total user accounts. In the last 24 hours, Tron has handled 2,393,997 transactions and has 702,111 user accounts. This type of stability and efficiency is what developers look for in a blockchain network when creating a decentralized application.
Submission of Projects is Between December 1st 2018 – January 4th 2019
Developers who wish to participate should submit their projects between the 1st of December and the 4th of January. Participation is via registration through EventBrite.com. More information on the Tron accelerator plan can be found on TronAccelerator.io.
