Tron-Tether partnership is “win-win cooperation”: Justin Sun
The collaboration of Tron with the chief of stablecoins, Tether, is growing prominent with USDT-TRON pairing and the TRC20-USDT Campaign. Meanwhile, Justin Sun, the founder of TRON, took the center of the stage in an AMA session to address the related developments readily.
Uncovering about the TRC20-USDT Campaign, launched jointly by Houbi Global and TRON, Sun revealed that Houbi Global will very soon support the Tron based USDT. He also stated, “The joint launch of the “TRC20-USDT Campaign” by TRON and Huobi Global will give an impetus to the development of TRC20-USDT applications and user growth.” The founder emphasized on the fact that Tether will aid the Tron ecosystem to promote the stablecoin market but added that currently, the network is highly compatible with the existing ETH smart contracts.
In regard to the progress of TRON MainNet, Sun reported that no incidents were recorded that were caused by the failure, which makes the network an ideal blockchain infrastructure to issue stablecoins. According to the entrepreneur, the introduction of stablecoins for TRON as a protocol will initiate a rush in four categories: decentralized exchanges, DApps, liquidity of TRC20, and TRC10 tokens and development of business applications.

“Opera is one of the most important software companies in the world. They are bringing security, privacy, and dynamic cryptocurrency capabilities to hundreds of millions of users,” says TRON founder, Justin Sun. “We are proud to connect the largest, active blockchain ecosystem to the best web browser ever built.
