2019 is going exceptionally awesome for TRON. The steady stream of good news for this particular blockchain network is not showing any signs of going away. And as a result, its price has been going high ever since the beginning of this year. While it had come in the market to compete particularly with Ethereum, today it has touched a milestone that puts it ahead of Bitcoin as well. The total number of transactions performed on it have surpassed the total number of transactions done on Bitcoin network. And this feat is impressive because what Bitcoin took 10 years to achieve as many transactions as TRON has achieved in less than an year. Clearly, TRON community is ecstatic:
It takes 319 days of #TRON to surpass the 10 years transactions of #Bitcoin, thanks for all the hardwork from #TRONICS to make such a remarkable achievement. Let’s keep the pace and work together for a better future! #TRX $TRX https://t.co/Kr7XTFvV9N

As the usage of TRON is increasing, the number of nodes online in the network is also increasing. Today the node count of TRON is also the highest it has had in many months, with a total of 1,357 nodes online as of now. Not too long ago this count was around 1,100 nodes, which shows that the stability and reach of TRON is increasing with every passing day.

Given that only a few days ago the TRON node count was around 1,100, this uptick is notable & provides the #TRX blockchain increased stability & growing global reach#IAmDecentralized$TRX pic.twitter.com/V3o1i7PQiI

Justin Sun and his team have also undertaken a number of efforts to make TRON an ideal platform for developers. Not only they have launched a number of developer-friendly tools and other resources (i.e. documentation, forums etc.) but also they have brought Tether to their network. The arrival of Tether on TRON blockchain also came with a bang, as within 10 days the supply of USDT tokens on TRON had reached 3.5% of overall supply. What else one would expect from a successful launch?
It will be very interesting to see which other milestones are reached next by TRON.
