A joint accelerator is in the works that will help create a progressive dApps ecosystem for the platform.


Justin Sun, the founder of the Tron Foundation, recently hinted at the forthcoming Tron Steemit partnership.

He included both Poloneix and Steemit in his address regarding building a support ecosystem for such platforms to grow organically.

Popular dApps include D.Tube and Actifit. Built by Dan Larimer and Ned Scott, the firm saw exponential growth powered by innovative apps that redefined its blockchain network.

The collaboration will create more value for the platform’s users through creative decentralized technologies. The STEEM Token will be migrated to a new token that will be based on TRON. Existing users will enjoy giveaways, and there will also be a new accelerator program. The proposed Steemit migration to Tron blockchain will be finished in the next few months.
