The Tron Foundation’s native cryptocurrency, TRX, has been bouncing up and down CoinMarketCap’s cryptocurrency charts. The coin was once the 10th largest cryptocurrency in the market, maintaining its position for quite some time. During the last few weeks however, the coin has been plummeting down in terms of market cap and was found at the 13th position yesterday. However, TRX had jumped back into the 12th position, at press time.

Come what may, Tron Foundation’s Justin Sun is always updating the community about the network’s several advancements and achievements. In a recent update, CEO Justin Sun shared another one of Tron’s many accomplishments with his 1.5 million Twitter followers. CEO Justin Sun announced that Tron Network’s smart contract triggers had reached 500 million. Sun’s tweet read,

The latest tweets announced that the circulation of Tron-based USDT had surpassed 110 million as Tether worth $112,402,010 was presently in circulation on the Tron network.
