The CEO of TRON, Justin Sun sent out a tweet yesterday that the TRON Foundation will become a partner with the Premier League football club Liverpool FC.
A spokesperson for Liverpool has reportedly told Decrypt Media that “Liverpool Football Club has confirmed that it does not have a partnership with Tron.”
Sun didn’t include any specific details about the nature of the upcoming partnership through which has been since denied. Although the tweet did feature a short video which showed an invitation from Liverpool with the TRON logo appearing in the video.
The CEO of TRON claimed that he is looking forward to this new partnership and added that it is an official partnership and that more details will be announced soon.
The head of Kraken crypto exchange, Jesse Powell posted on Twitter a screenshot of an email which alleged to be from Liverpool about a partnership that he had dismissed as a scam.
The co-founder of the TRON related blockchain startup IAmDecentralised, Misha Lederman said that the new alleged partnership between TRON and Liverpool would “would be beyond massive for crypto to say the least.”
As reported by CoinTelegraph:
“Samuel Austin, co-founder and developer at blockchain payment firm HummingPay, agreed that LFC’s alleged acceptance of Tron would help to bring exposure to Tron’s mission. He suggested that Liverpool could develop their own live streaming platform, which could probably be assisted through Tron’s peer-to-peer (P2P) platform BitTorrent, which was acquired by Tron in July 2018.”
Recently though, a decentralised applications-focused analytics website dapp.com published a report that claims the TRON blockchain has the fastest growing dApp user base.
