  • TRON down 2% the only coin in red from top-10.
  • MainNet hype is over, but Tron’s community is enthusiastic.

Tron, now the 10th largest digital asset by market capitalization, is under selling pressure. It has lost over 2% since this time on Thursday, though it is mostly unchanged since the start of the day. TRX/USD is changing hands at $0.5970, off the Asian low at $0.5860.

Tron has been very popular ahead of MainNet launch, spiking to $0.0840 on May 21. However, now that the hype subsided, Tron turned into an outsider, becoming the only coin in red from the top-10 batch.  While some traders find this development discouraging, long-term investors ignore this failure focusing on long-term potentials.  

Thus,  John McAfee, one of the top crypto influencers, continue to support Tron as one of the game-changers in crypto universe.

“Mainnet Odyssey 2.0 is live! #TRON is now in consensus phase, where we will work together with community developers and exchanges to pave the way towards TRON Independence Day,” Justin Sun. Tron’s Founder tweeted.
