TRON founder Justin Sun’s plan for blockchain domination seems to be going well. The TRON blockchain now has over 1 million user accounts and has reached over 100 million contracts recorded.

The number of TRON addresses, or users, is growing by between 10,000 and 40,000 per day. According to tronscan.org TRON, user address growth now looks like this:

It’s good news for TRON but Ethereum addresses are also still growing quickly. Etherscan.io shows Ethereum address are rising by over 50,000 per day.

TRON’s Dapp weekly report  revealed the news, pointing to the “rapid expansion” of the TRON ecosystem.  The number of Live DApps on the TRON blockchain has also grown by 20 in the past week to reach 61, one of the new apps is TRON’s own decentralized exchange trx.market.

Sun tweeted to celebrate the contracts news, signifying that 100 million smart contracts have been executed on the TRON blockchain:

Tron Usage Growing

New collectible dApp, Blockchain Cuties, also launched on TRON Arcade and on the TRON blockchain this week with Sun himself appearing as a collectible and very determined looking squirrel.

Blockchain Cuties has been launched on EOS, TRON, and Ethereum. Creator Vlad Tomko says certain “cuties” accessories will be limited to specific chains. This appears to be in order to differentiate the game across the platforms, and perhaps encourage users to the dApp on more than one blockchain.

As the cryptocurrency markets once again bounce upwards today TRON’s TRX coin, sitting in 10th place by market capitalization, is certainly not suffering on the blockchain’s latest snippets of news. TRX price is up nearly 12% in the past 24 hours compared to Bitcoin (BTC) rising by nearly 8% and Ethereum’s ETH up over 16%.

TRON dApp usage also jumped nearly 50% in recent weeks, a further sign that the TRON blockchain is indeed growing. It’s not the only blockchain to be seeing success while Ethereum still struggles with scalability. EOS rallied recently on news that China had rated the EOS blockchain the best and the WAVES coin has seen December hikes, potentially also fuelled by the development of the Waves smart contract blockchain.
