According to the announcement, TRON and Steemit’s collaboration will include migrating old STEEM token to a new TRON based STEEM token, organizing giveaways with the new TRON based STEEM token, and launching a new accelerator program towards the developer community.
Ned Scott, former CEO, Chairman and Founder of Steemit, said:
From launching the platform in 2016 on a shoestring budget to today, I’ve enjoyed the development of the platform and the growth of its user base — now I’m excited to see a strategic partner attempt to bring it to new heights.
Justin Sun, founder of TRON and CEO of BitTorrent, also noted that the partnership will help empower the blockchain platform’s title as the blockchain industry’s leader in distributed ledger technology.
Steemit joins Samsung, Poloniex, Opera, and DLive in TRON’s range of partnerships as part of the blockchain’s effort in providing a dynamic value proposition to its users, investors, and community members.
