First and foremost, I am a crypto investor, a tech enthusiast, and a developer. I have recently invested in whatever Reddit has been shilling, which includes TRON. Now, don’t get me wrong, this coin has gotten me great returns thus far, but after a closer examination of its whitepaper and marketing, I am seriously doubting the legitimacy of this project.
Here are some specifics about the marketing that has caught my attention:
– the amount of futuristic buzzwords and abbreviations like “Great Voyage” or “Star Trek” to capture attention
– the recent partnership with game.com, which appears impressive, but is a shitty website recently created to promote TRON. Its only game, Cryptodoggies, is very superficial with almost no feature except the ability to purchase virtual pets with TRON. Take a look for yourself.
In its whitepaper:
– 35% of coins go to the founders, while 10% of the initial coins go to Peiwo, a startup recently created by the founder of TRON.
– TRON claims that Peiwo is China’s largest music content community with 10 million users and 1 million daily users, and will soon support TRX. This is a blatant lie; Peiwo is similar to game.com, a buzzword startup created by Justin to campaign this coin. Its App Store release only has 2,000 total reviews. Again, you can take my word or do some Googling for yourself.
Anyways, I encourage you all to do some research on this coin, and let me know if you agree or disagree!
Edit: upon some further digging, I have found similar concerns from other Redditors that didn’t seem to raise any attention:
