Today, TRON announced that it has built a strategic partnership with GSC (Global Social Chain). In the future, TRON will provide GSC with great support in aspects of fund, technology and infrastructure, and GSC will carry out optimization based on TRON Network, in order to jointly facilitate development of blockchain-based social system.

GSC (Global Social Chain) is the world’s first new generation of social network chain that owns hundreds of millions of social users. This social chain is determined to use block chain technology to subvert centralized social networks such as Facebook, WeChat, etc., which plays a dual role as “manager” and “arbiter” simultaneously for the former social networking platforms.

GSC Foundation has a long-term relationship with Mico as the most important Strategic Partner. Mico is a mobile social platform for the global market, which was launched in February 2015. With its original “intelligent social recommendation system based on interest”, Mico has created its own territory in the giant global social market, quickly accumulating hundreds of millions of users and entered the top five social tables in more than 60 countries, becoming the world’s premier open social platform. A social matrix is built around the social platform on Mico, including Mico, Kitty Live, Waka, and YAY.

Mico is the largest social platform among strangers in Southeast Asia and Middle East and owns more than one hundred million registered users. It was once rated as the best App by Google. Kitty Live is one of the most popular streaming Apps in Southeast Asia and owns 20 million registered users. The cooperation between TRON and GSC means that at least 120 million users of social and streaming platforms will get access to TRON Network. This will significantly expand the blockchain-based online entertainment business.

“As a trailblazer that integrates blockchain and social & online entertainment, TRON has made remarkable achievements. Our partnership with TRON is the natural result of our shared goal of optimizing social experience with blockchain. In the future, we want to make more beneficial attempts based on TRON’s main chain, in order to bring young people around the world the best social experience,” said Sean Su, chairman of GSC Foundation.

“Currently, GSC and its partner Mico have owned more than one hundred million global users. In particular, they are very popular in Southeast Asia. Their favorable user base will become the key factor for GSC to outperform its competitors. In the future, TRON will support Mico in aspects of fund, technology and infrastructure, in order to continuously optimize social experience through blockchain,” said Justin Sun, founder of TRON.

TRON is a blockchain-based decentralized protocol that aims to construct a worldwide free content entertainment system with the blockchain and distributed storage technology. The protocol allows each user to freely publish, store and own data, and in the decentralized autonomous form, decides the distribution, subscription and push of contents and enables content creators by releasing, circulating and dealing with digital assets, thus forming a decentralized content entertainment ecosystem.

Tron was founded by Justin Sun, the former chief representative for Greater China of Ripple. Justin was featured in 2015&2017 Forbes China 30 under 30, 2017 Forbes Asia 30 under 30 and was a member of the first batch of entrepreneurs at Hupan University, an elite business school established by Jack Ma, the founder of Alibaba Group.

According to, Tron is the 14th among all crypto currencies, with a total market cap over 4.4 billion USD, daily trading volume of 300 million USD, there are at least 500,000 TRX holders around the world.
