Hot on the heels of excitement generated by SeedIt, the Tron dApp that allows Twitter users to send each other TRX payments with just a tweet, comes a potentially much bigger announcement; the introduction of TronChat.
As described in their press release “TronChat is an exciting new dApp built on Tron and powered by the TRX token. Tron is an entirely new social media platform that allows you to easily earn TRX in a wide variety of fun and interesting ways. TronChat is like if Instagram, Venmo and Telegram had a blockchain baby”.
TronChat allows users to do everything that one can do on traditional social networks like Facebook such as profiles, sending messages, sharing media, having private and public chats, creating groups, BUT where TronChat stands out is the ability through all of these features to receive and send TRX payments. A user can thus monetize any of these features e.g: Charge TRX for access to a group, monetize access to a file you uploaded. This feature alone is a distinction of note when compared to Facebook but when you add on the fact that the network exists on a decentralized web (TRON’s Mainnet) then we may seriously finally talking about the long awaited potential Facebook killer.

It should of course be noted that many social networks have popped up in the past and have been hyped to be the next Facebook, such as Ello which famed itself on privacy, but never before has a social network had so real a capaibility to challenge Facebook collectively on the two things that matter the most: User independence of corporate control and the ability to conduct financial transactions in real time on the social network.
Additionally, TRON has the largest and most engaged altcoin online community. There are over a million TRX holders in the world but add to that the estimated quarter of a billion BitTorrent users that TRON has access to, and this social network could take off like a rocket. The dream of a decentralized internet would then have become a reality.
