Earlier this week, I asked people on Twitter why they believe in Tron. I asked because while I have my own reasons, I wondered if there wasn’t something else I was missing.
I knew I was missing out on something because I’m not an investment professional, and I’m not a developer. Those types of folks, I assumed, are attracted to far different aspects of Justin Sun’s product than I am, even if we all share some level of hope to see an investment take off.
Personally, I’m a big fan of what Tron promises in terms of eliminating middle people and paying content creators directly. I love the entertainment industry and the vast content publishing landscape that now exists. But, I’ve seen how badly some creators have been gouged when the full rights to their own literature, songs, videos, etc. have been compromised as a trade for publishing on centralized platforms. So yeah, something like what Tron is selling interested me pretty quickly.
What I’ve come to realize, though, is that the real enthusiasm I have for it and several blockchain companies stems from their visions and missions. Those that haven’t really established a long-term plan, or those that literally had a plan to fork and that’s it, I’m not drawn to as much. Other people are, and that’s fine. I need more.
How are you going to change my world and everyone else’s? Better entertainment apps? Better financial systems and faster transactions? I get full ownership of my content?
I don’t necessarily want more than a working knowledge of the technologies behind blockchain and crypto (though, it is really stinking cool once you get used to it). I want you to tell me what you’re going to do with it.
And, gauging by many responses I got to the question, “Why do you believe in Tron?”, the platform (and others) are speaking to a growing number of others also – and not just with the allure of financial gain.
See for yourself:
People are stoked for a host of individual reasons. So, here’s to you, whoever you are, getting whatever it is you hope to get from the quickly evolving crypto world.
