Follow me, this helps a lot Priced at just fractions of a cent last November, the TRONIX (TRX) token was essentially worthless. Come December, however, and it shot up to a peak of around 25 cents, before sliding back to around 6-7 cents in mid-January. With a market capitalization of around USD 6 billion (similar to Dash) Tron sits amongst the top 20 digital assets — inspiring many to ask... well... why? https://i.ytimg.com/vi/yqEztI9MVCQ/hqdefault.jpg Part of the answer is the ‘a rising tide floats all boats’ argument which was true for TRON and most other cryptos during December as they all rode high on Bitcoin’s coattails. Another part of the answer is investor confidence in its founder, Justin Sun. Featured in Forbes magazine Asia’s 30 under 30 in 2017 (he’s 27), Sun is the founder of the popular voice streaming Peiwo app, which currently has around ten million followers in China. A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, he was the chief representative of Ripple China and led the company through its initial round of financing. He claims to be the only millennial attendee at Hupan University — to which he was personally invited, according to Forbes — and was one of the first forty students to receive tutelage under billionaire Alibaba founder Jack Ma. https://i.ytimg.com/vi/CI-Iq42NR2Y/maxresdefault.jpg The young entrepreneur is something of a social media sensation and his ultra-positive twitter feed, filled with metaphors of TRON being the David of a decentralized internet versus the mighty Goliaths (a picture of Game of Thrones’ Jaime Lannister charging Dragon features in one of his posts), further fuels the hype and growing cult of personality which surrounds him.
