TRON acquires the content platform Steemit
As reported by CNF, TRON CEO Justin Sun had been giving hints about a major new partnership. On February 14 he informed the TRON community that the blockchain-based content platform, Steemit, will be part of the TRON ecosystem.
Steemit is based on the Steem blockchain and is a content platform with more than 20 million active users. However, the reaction of the Steemit community was divided. Some said that the cooperation is being misleadingly advertised. The user Lukestokes said that many people do not understand the difference between Steemit and the Steem blockchain. He wrote:
The blockchain Steem is not (to my knowledge) owned by anyone.
TRON’s CEO responded to the publication and said he hopes the Steemit and TRON community can work together. However, luestokes said the community is disappointed and concerned.
