#OperationTronStorm: Where do the winds take it from here?

“Now it seems to me some fine things have been laid upon your table …”

Who knew.

Who could have seen what this past week’s events would bring inside both the Tron community and the crypto community at large?

I suppose I should start with the obvious in the successful launch of #OperationTronStorm. I mean … it’s been a week, and I’ve been a part of some big campaigns and events in my life, but, holy Moses … I never saw this coming. And if anyone tells you they did, they’re lying.*justin-sun-tron-operation-tron-storm

*(Not a little lie, a big one. Like, let’s say I told people I didn’t know my lawyer paid for my porn stars but then later I tell you I actually was the one who paid for the porn stars. That kind of big lie.)

The response from the Tron community was more than we could have asked. And, it’s only grown since the first day. More and more people are using @goseedit. Tron Wallet numbers are spiking. Tron and other coins are changing hands at an enormous rate. The crypto media took major notice.

All of it made something explicitly clear to me, even if @wlfofmyst, @mobrules1968 and I built Operation Tron Storm with the thought in mind:

Operation Tron Storm is much, much larger than any one individual. The community spirit of sharing crypto and blockchain technology with the masses belongs to everyone who wants it.

But, as fantastic as it all was, is, and I believe will continue to be, it was a pinnacle of sorts when we found out that the Tron Foundation and Justin Sun were aware of the campaign.

And, they liked it.

And later, someone(s) from inside the Foundation told the ICO Journal things like:

“Without giving away details you can expect our team to further attempt to develop relationships with global influencers and brands. The way that we look at it, what is the downside? We will make all sorts of attempts and all that can occur is that they say ‘no thanks’? The Tron community has shown us that even those attempts are worth the effort…”

With another source telling ICO Journal:

“We know an opportunity when we see it and this is one of them. We are working on more ‘visible’ partnerships and deeper and larger sponsorships and can be a part of our overall message. Is there one way we’d describe the Tron Storm here? We’d just say ‘thank you’ to the whole Tron community.”

To recap: Tron liked OTS so much that it already has started working on “visible” partnerships with influencers and brands. They have the star-power to pull off what I hoped we could do with Taylor Swift a little over a month ago. (God… a month… that’s it. How much has changed!?)

So, great news and things, but where does that leave Operation Tron Storm’s efforts?

Because things were monumentally far more influential than we could have ever dreamed, we need to step back and do some reassessment. We were going to be about reaching out to the public and to influencers. We thought doing just that part would take several coordinated efforts over a longer period of time. Wonderfully, it didn’t.

As things have played out, we think it’s a better idea to let the Foundation run with their plans for the time being and perhaps guide us on where OTS’ efforts best could support their efforts. In the meantime, though, we’re also going to work internally on identifying ways we can use our new platform and voice to best serve the Tron community.

We already have some pretty good ideas.

That said, let’s talk about that bounty.

The Kanye bounty – as part of the OTS rollout, is still in effect. We haven’t gotten the specific response we had hoped for from conducting the bounty, but while we are eyeing our new strategies for the future, we want to give the bounty a totally fair shake instead of it sorta filtering away into the nothingness.

So, the bounty will remain open until midnight (U.S. Central Time) Saturday, Sept. 1. It will close at that time. Later on Saturday, we will also announce a new program we think will work well with the growing strategies built around Operation Tron Storm’s spirit. It will involve the community, and we think you’ll like it.

You’ll probably even like it enough to tip.

Watch here and watch us on Twitter for later information.

TRON: Welcome, new user, to the new Internet!

 

Hello, new Tron user!

You’re probably wondering … what was that video I just watched? What in the world is a Tron? And, how did I wind up here?

You’re here because the person who identified and tipped you on Twitter believes you’re a perfect candidate to get a sneak peek into how the Internet is changing.

It’s quickly moving on from the powerful companies like Google, Facebook, and Amazon that control everyone’s information – until data gets compromised. On that front, the Internet is also figuring out how to solve its own security and hacking problems.

In short, an Internet storm is brewing — Operation Tron Storm to be specific — and you now have a front-row seat!

Tron is a new platform built on transparency, a digital currency, a tight-knit community, and the core belief that the Internet’s power shouldn’t be held by a select few companies. It should be open and free on a level playing field for all users – you, us, our favorite entertainers, online communities, investors, developers, gamers, you name it.

Everyone.

That’s why the person who just tagged and tipped you did what they did. They want you in the community.

So, first thing’s first… because you were tipped, what does that mean?

It means you now already have an official Tron wallet already set up for you, along with your first five TRX tokens! (TRX is the Tron coin – one that is increasingly being used in different ways around the world and in the United States!)

From here, you should:

  1. Access your wallet over at Seedit.io. by following these instructions. After that, you can explore Tronscan.org and learn more about all of the things Tron is and will be.
  2. Next, explore Tronscan.org a little. Find out what the platform is and how you can do things like buy more Tron, invest what you have into projects, and take part in elections. It’s all available to you!
  3. Next, check out this Google search for Tron and read some current news. Trust us, there’s more every day!
  4. And finally, if you have questions or want some guidance, ask the person who tipped you originally. They want to help you and see you get excited about Tron like they are (and we are!). We’re not kidding when we say it’s a community! (And, you’re already able to go out and tip others!)

Finally, if you want to hear from Tron’s creator, Justin Sun, what this whole Tron thing is about, watch this:

And, if none of that seems to quite hit what you’re looking for, you can always find us on Twitter or Telegram. We love those places!

So, are you ready to start your TRON tipping adventure?

Let’s go!

Sincerely,

Wolf, Mob, & Kitchen

Taking Tron to the masses: Introducing Tron Storm

Introducing Tron Storm

It’s time to light up the sky and take Tron to the masses.

Why? Because … like we’ve said in other posts:

You are Tron.

So, without further delay, it’s time to unleash the storm. Welcome to helping decentralize the Internet. Welcome to Operation TRON STORM.

The concept is simple. Think “Community Air Drop.” Except, include @Goseedit, who is collaborating with TRON STORM, and we thank them for their support.

Now, here’s where you come in:

Each person will “Tip” five (5) TRX tokens to 10 people using @Goseedit (as soon as it becomes available on Twitter!) on a specific day we will announce soon.That way, we create an immediate groundswell and watch the effects ripple out.

Operation Tron Storm: Who do you tip?

Five of the people you tip will be your five FAVORITE music artists. We want to get the word out to them that TRON is a decentralized network, thus allowing musicians COMPLETE control over their work.

The next five people you will send to are those NOT currently in crypto right now. By looking at someone’s Twitter account, it’s fairly easy to tell if they are in crypto (ha!).

The reason we are asking for this specifically is because the goal is to introduce the masses to the world of TRX and music and entertainment professionals the world of true content ownership.

@Goseedit has provided excellent detailed information (see the video below). Also, the awesome team over there automatically includes Tron and Wallet set-up information with every tip you send. How cool is that for your friends!

However, it will be YOUR job to follow up with everyone you send a tip to. The more you help these people understand what they just received, the more successful this will be.

More information will be coming as to when Operation Tron Storm will be launched. This is a very exciting step for mass adoption, and we’re thrilled to try and help spread the Tron message. It is a movement that we, the Tron Community, are making happen!

Wolf, Mob, & Kitchen (with a special thanks to @padub81 for the extra insight!)
