The Tron Foundation entered the cryptocurrency market only in 2018, fairly late when compared to other cryptocurrencies. However, this hasn’t posed as a hindrance to the Tron Foundation’s growth as there seems to be no stopping to the Foundation’s accomplishments.
Several people have speculated that Tron’s Founder and CEO, Justin Sun, and his marketing skills, have bolstered the popularity of the coin. Justin Sun constantly updates his 1.6 million Twitter followers about the developments and achievements of the Foundation.
In the latest tweet by the Tron Foundation, the block height of Tron was recorded to have surpassed 12 million, registered a block height of 12,048,116. The tweet read,

This development comes a few days after Tron’s weekly report reported the block height passing 11.86 million.
Additionally, Justin Sun tweeted yet another achievement of Tron, after he announced that Tron was ranked 8th in GitHub commits history. Sun’s tweet read,
According to #Cryptomiso, #TRX ranked 8 in Github commits history of 485 #cryptocurrencies based on most popular repo in the past 6 months. Hard work always shows! See our full work at @GitHub: https://t.co/mr1u2etMSg #TRON $TRX pic.twitter.com/bOhB6s3zlL

The post claimed that Tron was ranked 8th with 1,626 commits in the last six months on GitHub. Tron was seen in the tenth position with 2,494 commits in the nine months list, and wasn’t even a part of the twelve months list.
Despite several developments in the ecosystem, the price of Tron’s native coin, TRX, seemed to be dropping by 3.69% over the last 24 hours. The coin was valued at $0.0170, with a market cap of $1.14 billion, at the time of writing. The 24-hour trading volume was $468 million, wherein most of the volume came from Biki exchange via the trading pair TRX/USDT.
