Cryptocurrency, TRON (TRX) –With cryptographic markets showing moderate price stability in the last week of 2018, after losing about $ 700 billion in market capitalization throughout the year, coin projects are consolidating and focusing on growth for 2019.
TRON, in particular, is able to expand beyond its current limits through the gaming industry.
From before getting the traction through a strategic collaboration with the game.com blockchain games portal, the TRON Foundation and the TRX currency were the main project to advance the interest of games through cryptocurrency. The TRON white paper, although controversial and criticized, outlined the project as a platform that would address the digital entertainment landscape, with games as one of the most important and accessible ways to infiltrate the cryptocurrency.
The potential for TRON games has increased mid-year, with the announcement that TRON founder Justin Sun has acquired BitTorrent in a wholesale purchase of Rainberry, Inc., giving access to the network main TRX at the base of 170 million users affiliated to the filesharing service. Although BitTorrent is not a direct path to gaming like the Game.com partnership, it presents a significant overlap in consumer bases, with the torrent crowd finding similar interest in the decentralized cryptocurrency money. Project Atlas, which was designed to further integrate BitTorrent on the TRON platform, while providing a greater incentive for torrenters to participate in the network, could also deepen the relationship between the two platforms.
However the announcement of TRON Arcadeas reported by EWN at the end of November, provides a clear indication of the direction of the TRON Foundation in the next year and beyond, or at least will provide some attention to the development of the currency and the investor base. According to the press release of the era, the TRON Foundation will pay $ 100 million over the next three years to stimulate innovation in blockchain games on the TRON platform, while providing a strong incentive for game developers to integrate TRX in their creations.
Justin Sun called the "crucial" announcement for currency growth and encrypted gaming, further expanding the role of TRON in the broader sphere of digital entertainment.
"TRON strives to address the existing problems faced by the gaming industry by exploiting the open, transparent and immutable blockchain technology, and TRON Arcade will play a crucial role in encouraging developers to join our mission and deliver the best blockchain gaming experience to users all over the world. "
With the market still recovering from the 2018 deep bear correction, the game provides an outlet for TRON to pivot and expand during the temporary transition period. The TRON Foundation and Justin Sun could try to tackle the megalith of digital entertainment, but with games, it may not be necessary to re-invent the wheel. TRON only needs to find a way to improve the current landscape through the TRX currency in order to stimulate greater interest in investment and currency development. In particular, e-sports should exceed $ 1 billion in global revenue next year, showing an industry that is experiencing explosive growth and matures for the input of a technology such as cryptography.
