Social trading platform eToro has listed the TRON (TRX) token on its platform, which makes the Ethereum and EOS competitor the 15th token to be listed on the London-based trading platform.
The TRON foundation announced the news on their blog, and the token joins Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Litecoin (LTC), Dash (DASH), Stellar Lumens (XLM), NEO (NEO), EOS (EOS), Cardano (ADA), IOTA (MIOTA) Binance Coin (BNB) and Zcash (ZCASH).
TRON founder Justin Sun, who recently celebrated TRX token’s listing on OKEx, was pleased about the increased liquidity that the eToro platform will bring:
With our listing on eToro, we’re giving TRX holders another great platform on which to manage their assets. These steps will help grow the blockchain community and expand our reach around the world.
The project released its mainnet in June last year and, despite much scrutiny from the crypto community, has been performing relatively well in the market.
Sun, in typical fashion, has been quick to sing praises for the project’s successes, causing a particularly intense discussion among the community after he said that he hoped to make TRON a 1 billion strong ecosystem with the use of BitTorrent.
Yoni Assia, co-founder and CEO of eToro, remarked that eToro is happy to add tokens that has “clear success behind them”:
TRON is making fast progress towards lofty ambitions, and has rightly garnered the attention of the crypto community. Given the relative youth of blockchain technology, investors in crypto-assets are investing in big ideas and seeking out companies that execute on big ideas. Tron certainly ticks that box. At eToro we look to offer investors access to crypto-assets that already have some clear success behind them.
With a user base of 10 million across the world, the platform’s most notable feature is its CopyTrader, which embodies the social aspect of its company mission by letting users copy the portfolio of successful traders on the platform.
Recently, eToro published the results of a survey that claimed over half of millennials have more trust in crypto exchanges than they do in the U.S. stock exchange.
