Tron investors will be very excited over the latest announcement made by Justin Sun’s team. Tron will launching an exciting new Dapp built on Tron call TronChat, which will be powered by the TRX token.
Tron is an entirely new social media platform that allows you to easily earn TRX in a wide variety of fun and interesting ways. TronChat is like if Instagram, Venmo and Telegram had a blockchain baby.
What is the purpose of TronChat?
TronChat was built so that users can “make money from their everyday interactions with social media.”
Social media was never built for you to make money. Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and others were built for the sole purpose of generating profits for the platforms based on your user activity and personal data. TronChat was created to fix this paradigm, and allow users to make money from their everyday interactions with social media.
As the blockchain world continues to develop and dApp’s are now in development, TronChat is aiming to be the first “killer dApp”. TronChat will be available to the whole world much like any other social media platform, but will allow the users to share in the profits made. Focusing on the true utility of blockchain which is decentralisation, meaning profits will not be made ‘from’ the user but rather ‘for’ the users. TronChat will allow everyone to earn TRX simply by using social media.
How will TronChat work?
The team at Tron describe TronChat as a somewhat brainchild of Instagram, Venmo and Telegram.
The standalone social media app will allow users to enjoy all the photo, video and story-posting features they love about Instagram with the chat functionality users have come to adore about Telegram.
The platform appears as though it is going to try and merge a number of popular social media concepts into one. On the official article posted by the TronChat team they list the following:
Post stories, pictures and videos with the intuitive functionality found in leading social media apps. Easily make your content premium and choose how much TRX it will cost for your viewers to unlock the post. Premium content is completely optional! This can be done on a per-post basis, and users can charge TRX for subscriptions to premium profiles. Followers can easily tip TRX on posts that they like. This offers creators a variety of new ways to earn actual money for their work. These features are not available on mainstream social media platforms despite the fact that followers are often excited and willing to support their favorite creators.
Send a message that grabs the reader’s attention. TronChat’s messaging is designed to remove spam and bring meaning to every interaction on the platform. With TronChat you can attach TRX to your messages to make sure they are opened. You can also add more TRX to automatically record and see the recipient’s reaction. Imagine what Justin Sun’s face will look like as he reads your message! Oh wait, you won’t have to!
Chatrooms are a critical aspect of interaction in the crypto community, and TronChat allows for all the functionality you love about Telegram with the ability to easily send TRX or tip the chatroom creators. It’s no secret that many chatrooms are private and require a fee to enter, so we built that feature right into the app.
Users can opt-in to “Direct Updates” from a page to be notified whenever the page has news. These updates can also contain a TRX reward for opening or completing actions like taking surveys. Direct updates will completely disrupt the email newsletter as we know it.
Tipping is just good manners! And now with TronChat tipping can easily be done across the entire app, making it easier than ever to transfer some crypto to your favorite content creator or social media buddy.
