TRX to Power New ‘Instagram, Venmo and Telegram’-Like App on Tron Network
TronChat, a new DApp built on Tron and powered by the network’s native cryptocurrency TRX, is currently in progress, according to an announcement by the development team.
Combining a list of features and social media functionality, TronChat calls itself the “blockchain baby” of Instagram, Venmo and Telegram.
The DApp is designed to offer an alternative to profit-taking, centralized tech giants by providing a platform that can generate money for users who earn TRX through simple social media interactions.
According to the announcement,
“As lifelong developers with an expertise in social media, we wanted to do more than wait for someone to create the first ‘killer’ dApp for the blockchain world. TronChat allows anyone and everyone to easily earn TRX for doing the things they love most on social media, bringing true use and utility for both cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.”
