Of course, Bakkt should include Tron; and Tron needs to figure out its Super Representative problem

It really doesn’t do any good to list all of Tron’s achievements over the past two months. Every credible crypto media source has covered them in detail. And, our friend, @mishalederman, has wonderfully kept the Twitterati informed about Tron’s continued infrastructure growth.

So, let’s get right down to it. Of course, Bakkt should include Tron to its mix. 

Bakkt wants to bring the very best of digital asset investment to the masses through its product, and adding a growing power like Tron would only strengthen its offering. 

To its credit, Bakkt tweeted and said it “would consider additional contracts as the landscape evolves and as we receive additional customer feedback about what they want and need.”

And, to its equal credit, the Tron community shook off a post-Thanksgiving food coma and got to work reposting at Bakkt or submitting Lederman’s letter template

It is all good work by everyone involved.

It is not all good news for Tron, however, as a mini controversy has erupted inside the Super Representative house.

Over the past few weeks, Tron supporters and Super Representatives began to notice seemingly random, shadowy names popping up as SR candidates. In what seemed like no time, those shadow figures suddenly burst up the ranks to become SRs – much to the dismay of current, long-standing, loyal, vetted, community-building SRs who were unceremoniously dumped after doing absolutely nothing other than performing flawlessly or nearly so in the network.

And while there might be some sour grapes from those who have superiorly illustrated their capabilities and support for Tron but are now outside of the democratic voting system, that’s not the real issue.

What doesn’t pass the smell test is how one rep, for example, explodes onto the scene with north of 200 million votes all at once when they never had SR intentions at all

And then, in a rewards conversation, show ignorance on the token they are supposed to be a steward for. 

And then, to top it all off, announce that your rewards system is being delayed.

There’s no discussion to be had here. ALLE Exchange is bad for Tron, and Tron needs to stop this behavior.

There’s nothing democratic about someone buying their way into a position and profiting from it.*

*Don’t @me about U.S. politics, either.

With all of that out of the way, let’s get back to good things… like waiting for that incoming IGG airdrop.
