Decentralised blockchain platform, TRON, has been working on a partnership with an unknown firm valued at “tens of billions of dollars.”
CEO Justin Sun teased an announcement on Twitter yesterday. His followers were quick to offer up various names, including Alibaba. That would make sense seeing that Sun, as his Twitter bio points out, is “the first Millennial graduate of Hupan University founded by Alibaba’s Jack Ma”.
Baidu, Clover and Disney were also mentioned.

Not everyone was impressed, however, with one person saying: ‘Justin you REALLY need someone to handle your communications and marketing strategy. you should do some research on the effects of announcing announcements. seriously, this is the big leagues for you now. act like you should be there’.
Sun is no stranger to making bold claims on Twitter. Earlier this month, he stated that the TRON token’s forthcoming update would see it beat Ethereum on speed and EOS on cost.
Based on community consensus, #TRON will be upgrading to Odyssey 3.1 at 8pm SGT. The TRON Committee function & TVM will go live, marking the start of the Smart Contract Era. TRON will be 200x faster vs. ETH, 100x cheaper vs. EOS. dApp developers & users, this one is for you! $TRX
