As the TRON Foundation builds their platform, TRON is creating regular partnerships with Asian companies in order to bring TRX into the mainstream. Below are some of the companies that have begun to introduce TRX into their ecosystem.
Peiwo is an audio content social app that often gets described as China’s Snapchat. The app matches and connects users by analyzing 10-second voice samples as well as common interests. Peiwo was founded by TRON’s CEO Justin Sun. Peiwo has over 10 million users and the collaboration gives all these users access to TRX.
TRON and Peiwo have begun collaborating with Peiwo allowing users to send tips based on TRX to each other within the App.
oBike is a Singapore based stationless bicycle-sharing system with operations in several countries. The bikes have a built-in Bluetooth lock and can therefore be left anywhere at the end of a journey, not just at a docking station. TRON’s partnership with oBike has resulted in oBike introducing its own cryptocurrency called oCoin which is built on the TRON protocol. Users will be able to pay with oCoin as well as earn these tokens the more they travel using their bicycles.
This partnership adds another 10 million oBike users in contact with TRON.
Game.com is a blockchain gaming platform that focuses on creating a globalized gaming platform for blockchain digital currencies. By creating and integrating game content, they are forming a foundation for blockchain digital currencies that will help provide digital currency solutions for a variety of entertainment services.

All this is done using TRX.
Gifto is a virtual gifting blockchain platform which was launched by Asia Innovation Group, the creator of Uplive, a live streaming mobile application with over 20 million users that uses virtual gifting to reward content creators on their platform.

“GSC (Global Social Chain) is the world’s first new generation of social network chain that owns hundreds of millions of social users.
