The cryptocurrency market was going through a slump as the prices were crashing hard. However, Tron’s TRX saw a sudden spike in its price after some time of the announcement. John McAfee unofficially gave a hint in Tweets that he will soon launch the service for the Tron platform as well. This unofficial announcement can be linked with the sudden spike in TRX.
This sudden spike moved TRX in the list of top 12 best-performing coins along with BTC, ETH, and XRP. XRP also witnessed a rise in its charts as the price moved towards the resistance levels. Bitcoin corrected upwards by trading above $8,000.
