The entire cryptocurrency community was surprised when Charles Hoskinson, the co-founder of Cardano, told Tron’s Justin Sun that both companies should enter into partnership. While Justin did not agree immediately, he said he would think about it.

Cardano (ADA) and Tron (TRX) are two of the few coins that have managed to make advances even with the current market conditions. Both companies have formed new partnerships on different levels individually. The proposal by Charles Hoskinson from Cardano was made casually on Twitter last week.
On his official Twitter handle he posted:
“@justinsuntron you people should use our Cardano Mantis client instead of using Ethereum Java https://t.co/u2e2pObqYE. The code is better. Consensus, and security audited is pluggable for a DPoS style protocol.

At first, people believed it was just a tweet and would not grow into anything. However, with a closer look, it is an opportunity for both companies to establish a strong team. Charles confirmed that he wasn’t joking by adding:
“I am very serious. Tron is using a fork of Ethereum Java but they would benefit more if they use our Mantis instead.
He believes that using Java is holding Tron back that is why he suggested that the company should use Cardano’s Mantis client instead of Ethereum Java. Mantis is much better than Java according to Hoskinson.
Will a Partnership Between Cardano (ADA) and Tron (TRX) be Possible?
Note that Tron is still a project in progress that is trying get independence from Ethereum. Two days after the post, Justin Sun replied:
“Thank you for your advice! Our goal is to build the best blockchain so we will consider Mantis too.”
Almost every cryptocurrency enthusiast on Twitter was in support of the idea stating that switching to Cardano’s Mantis client was the best choice for Tron. It might give Tron the full capacity to rival Ethereum.
