Tron, since its inception, has been striving to be a decentralized entertainment content sharing platform. During the initial stage, the cryptocurrency was hailed as the new project that’s promising to “heal the internet.” The People behind the technology strongly understand the significance of educating ordinary people about the pros and cons of the blockchain and the digital currencies.
The idea of Blockchain and the cryptocurrency was first conceptualized in the year 2008 by a person or group of people known by the pseudonym, Satoshi Nakamoto. Blockchain has now since then evolved into something more significant. Ten years hence, the world is still confused about the technologies and their merits. TRON foundation recognizes this gap and is actively working towards closing it.
The Tron marketing team has started to arrange and conduct a series of events with the goal of helping regular people understand the relevance of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. Tron Foundation had also, reportedly, got into an alliance with the San Jose State University in the Silicon Valley to raise awareness among the masses about the same. However, rather than traditional courses, the program will be a one-time educational event.
“TRON illustrates major efforts in sharing the knowledge of blockchain and cryptocurrency to the masses by introducing The Educational Event Series,” tweeted @tronfoundation, the official twitter handle of the TRON foundation regarding their efforts.
The first of these events was held on March 7 in San Francisco which observed more than 40 people in attendance. Chris Eberle, COO of Swarm, Cecilia Li from OKCOIN U.S. and Kevin Ding, Managing Director at Danhua Capital were the principal speakers during the event.
The panel engaged the audience on several topics like the difference between traditional payment systems, such as PayPal, and the cryptocurrencies, functioning of the digital assets, smart contracts, open ledger transactions, and how the financial industry will become the first institute to embrace the blockchain technology. They also enlightened the audience about various misconceptions about blockchain. They cleared the most common of them all that Bitcoin and the other virtual currencies may help you make rich faster.
The conversation also veered into the topic of the on-going bearish market. The panelists patiently explained that it is rather vital to concentrate on the technology and the implication of various blockchain platforms on the society than watching virtual coin prices go up and down charts.
