Other notable information shared in the report revealed that TRON Bird, “a simple collectibles game” in which players receive a “bird egg with 300 TRX to hatch” has become fairly popular.

As explained in TRON’s blog, TRON Bird is “conceptually similar” to Ethereum’s CryptoKitties in “the sense that users buy, sell, or rent pets” in order to earn TRX tokens.

FlashDEX, A Decentralized Digital Asset Exchange

FlashDEX, a decentralized cryptoasset exchange (DEX) built on the TRON network, will reportedly “support the TRC-20 standard token USDT-TRON” which was developed and jointly released by Tether Ltd. and the developers of TRON.

As mentioned in the Weekly Dapp Report, the FlashDEX platform “manages user orders and freezes assets” in an automated manner - as these transactions are handled by smart contracts. Because the trading process is managed by contracts, users and operators need not conduct the “transfer operation” by themselves (manually). Moreover, the FlashDEX has been created to function as a “service platform that efficiently manages buyers and sellers” in order to settle crypto transactions, TRON’s blog states.

On April 2, 2019, Justin Sun, the head of the TRON Foundation, announced that the platform’s developers would soon be releasing the details of the Sun network. According to a tweet regarding the announcement, the SUN Network is TRON’s version of the "layer 2" crypto payment solution to "achieve 100X scalability.”

Although unconfirmed, Sun noted: “#TRON’s dapp usage is poised to scale from the current millions to hundreds of millions after launch.”

Sun has asked U.S. presidential candidate Andrew Yang for assistance in the selection process. Yang, who has a background in entrepreneurship, has built his campaign upon the idea of universal basic income (UBI), which would guarantee U.S. citizens a monthly stipend. In addition to championing the idea on the campaign trail, Yang has pledged to distribute $1,000 per month to 10 people for the next year.
