On Tuesday (January 15th), ABCC Exchange announced its partnership with TRON Foundation ahead of the niTROn Summit in San Francisco (January 17–18). It also said that it would be the first cryptocurrency exchange to list TRON's native (TRC-10) tokens. However, it is not clear that this second claim is correct as we will explain in this article.
The first time we heard from the Singapore-headquartered ABCC Exchange was on January 11th, when it tweeted about its intention to list both TRC-10 and TRC-20 tokens on its trading platform:
The price of #TRX has been rising rapidly!— ABCC Exchange (@ABCC_Exchange) January 10, 2019
This is testament to the good news we have been hearing from @Tronfoundation recently. We are currently working with Tron to list TRC-20 and TRC-10 on ABCC Exchange!

This was followed by another tweet on January 15th:
Later in the same day, it tweeted again about TRON, this time to announce its partnership with TRON Foundation and to say that it would be the first exchange to list TRC10 tokens:
We are excited to announce our partnership with @Tronfoundation ahead of #niTROn2019! @Justinsuntron#ABCC is the 1st exchange that will list #TRX 10 tokens - We are one of the top exchanges with great security and user interface. Stay tuned!— ABCC Exchange (@ABCC_Exchange) January 15, 2019

However, as this reply from "@ActiveEightCoin" suggests, ABCC Exchange does not appear to be the first cryptocurrency exchange to list TRC-10 tokens, and in fact, that honor seems to belong to cryptocurrency exchange CryTrEx:
Well you are not the first exchange to list TRC10 tokens 😂! How many Tron tokens do you have listed now @crytrexcom ?— ActiveEightCoin (@Activ8Coin) January 15, 2019
What is even more interesting is that ActiveEightCoin, which is a TRC-10 token, was the first such token to list on CryTrex on 13 November 2018:
@Tronfoundation @justinsuntron pleased to announce that @Activ8Coin has listed on @crytrexcom exchange! First #TRX token to list on an exchange outside of #Tron ecosystem. Fantastic achievement! #ACTIV #ActivEightCoin #CryTrEx— Cryptocoin Win (@cryptocoin_win) November 13, 2018
At press time, according to CryptoCompare, TRX is trading at $0.02548, up 0.04% in the past 24-hour period.
