Tron News Today – Headlines for February 21

  • Tron has lost more than 10% in the last 24-hours
  • The coin has continued to slip amid an overall poor sentiment
  • Justin Sun’s acquisitions to boost adoption haven’t paid off

Tron News Today – digital currency protocol, Tron’s price has dropped by over 10% in the past 24- hours, has today continued to slip even further down the charts in its ranking. The digital asset which wasn’t ranked among the top ten largest coins by market cap until recently has dropped to number 15 since this decline began. The most recent results for Tron have come despite the continued efforts of Justin Sun to foster growth in the Tron ecosystem with many new acquisitions.

Stiff Competition for Tron

Sun’s efforts to see that his brainchild Tron becomes a success once more has instead ensured that Tron’s native token TRX rallies only in the short-term. It appears that the digital asset has then withdrawn after the news of the decline phased out. What this implies is that even though the digital asset manages to perform well and enjoy some ‘bullish occasions’, it also nearly finds it difficult to extend this situation or climb higher. It lacks consistency.

In contrast, competitors Tezos and Chainlink have been consistent. After many weeks of rallying, both digital assets have successfully ensured that their market cap rose and now they are now sitting above Tron in the list of largest coin’s by market cap. Tezos has outdone other popular coins like Cardano and Stellar, to climb into the top ten. Meanwhile, Chainlink is just at the number 12 position with Cardano above it.

But Tron, on the other hand, could be phased out if it doesn’t rise and act more competitive against the other coins. Just like Ethereum Classic, NEM and IOTA, which were once ranked high but now only feature above number 20, Tron could act like these and follow their trend.

Sun’s Acquisitions Haven’t Paid off

Finally, the main reason why Sun’s acquisitions phase-out quickly remain to be seen. While the Tron chief continues to expand his coin’s ecosystem (as we can see from his previous acquisitions), none of these have paid off in a huge way. And with no long term plan, the projects he acquired or partnered with means nothing. These projects only create hype for the network which in turn drives in just short-term gains for TRX.

The only project that has long-term strategic partnerships is Ripple. Ripple looks for other protocols that make sure adoption comes to XRP as well as more use cases. In most instances, the XRP digital currency doesn’t make short term change. However, space places more trust in it especially on notions that it will come to the top for the long-term.
