Justin Sun Only Blockchain Project Founder to Speak at Samsung’s Devs Conference
According to the published schedule (as at this writing) of the forthcoming Samsung Developer Conference 2019 to be held at the Silicon Valley, TRON is the only existing blockchain project that its founder will be given a slot to run a session at the top tech giant’s annual event.
The event’s website shows that the founder of TRON and CEO of BitTorrent, Justin Sun, will talk on “TRON, Blockchain, and Real-World Use Cases” going by his project’s description as having “one of the most profound and fastest growing blockchain ecosystems in the world”. The blockchain pioneer is expected to share his thoughts on “how to take blockchain to the masses” during the SDC19 session holding between Oct. 29 and 30.

TRON largest blockchain platform launched since 2017
While most of the sessions slated for the two-day event are mainly Samsung-related and the few that are about blockchain tend to have a generic focus, it is not immediately clear why Sun is selected to run a session. But it comes amid claims TRON has “become the largest blockchain platform that launched since 2017″ according to DApp.com in its market Q3 report. It also notes that TRON added 500,000 users on its mainnet until September making the smart contract platform now having over 3.7 million mainnet addresses and the second most popular network for building dApps.
In its Q3 dApp market overview, Asian cryptocurrency aggregator, CoinGecko, puts TRON behind Ethereum in terms of new user addition its 2019 Q3 Cryptocurrency Report. However, just like Dapp, CoinGecko’s co-founder Bobby Ong maintains that Ethereum holds the grip on the decentralized finance (DeFi) market – regardless of other platforms’ activeness in various sectors – for its vast number of developers.
