Looking at DappRadar.com, it shows that 50% of the top ten most utilized DApps are on the Tron network.Also, many of the top 50 most popular DApps recognized by DappRaddar are found on the Tron network.More focus on DeFi by the Tron FoundationBased on DappRadar’s DeFi ranking category, the Just (JST) platform is topping the list, ahead of some popular Ethereum-based DeFi platforms such as Aave (LEND), MakerDAO (MKR), Compound (COMP), as well as Synthetix. As Tron DApps continue to be popular, Justin Sun is now aiming for the DeFi industry.Furthermore, last month, Justin Sun revealed that the Tron Foundation will launch the Tron edition of Uniswap this month. The Tron-based platform, called ‘JUSTswap’ will be launched on August 17 while the Yield Farming will be launched two weeks later“#TRON‘s version of Uniswap “JUSTswap” will launch on Aug 17th 2) #USDJ & #JST yield farming will launch on Aug 31st,” he reiterated.TRX market performance shows growthThe market performance of Tron is proof to show that Tron is on a bullish level in the market. It can be deduced that before today’s morning dip, Tron was on a bullish trajectory. Before a slight dip in the price of $0.01750, Tron (TRX) had gone up to $0.02135. After staying at that local peak level for some period, it pushed back to the $0.01750 support level before bouncing back to the $0.01940 value, which is its current value at the time of writing.The fact is that Tron (TRX) has dropped to as low as $0.00680 during the Coronavirus crash of mid-March. But the platform is recovering from the mid-March dip and offered more than 3 times return for anyone quick to purchase early and dip back then.
