Following the acquisition of BitTorrent, TRON has again expanded its portfolio by acquiring the blockchain app store CoinPlay. This brings TRON a little closer to the decentralized Internet.
The TRON Foundation recently announced the acquisition of the CoinPlay blockchain app store to create a larger infrastructure for TRON’s distributed Internet. With the latest acquisition, TRON offers its users the ability to directly access decentralized apps instead of searching app stores such as Google Play, the Apple App Store or the Internet.
CoinPlay positions itself as a blockchain app store that aims to offer the most comprehensive and up-to-date dApps. Currently, popular blockchain applications are often very hard to find. It is also very difficult to check the source for a secure download. TRON and CoinPlay share the same vision: to create a better user experience for blockchain users in the industry.
Tron’s CEO, Justin Sun, announced on Twitter:
Dear #Tronics: I am proud to officially announce that #TRON has successfully acquired CoinPlay. From now on, @CoinPlayShop is part of the TRON ecosystem, along with #BitTorrent, which makes TRON one of the largest decentralized ecosystems in the world.#TRX.
In the future, CoinPlay will also support real-time quotes with multiple currencies, transaction volumes, transaction prices and GitHub queries. New users will also find comprehensive graphical tutorials and links to high-quality projects and other cryptocurrencies. The company has also received strategic investments from major investment companies and investors.
Justin Sun also said:
TRON recently completed its MainNet upgrade from 3.5. As a blockchain-based entertainment ecosystem, we will continue to focus on content and entertainment. The recent acquisition of CoinPlay aims to better serve the blockchain industry. 2019 will be the year of exponential growth for the TRON ecosystem.
