The founder of Alibaba, Jack Ma, and the founder of Tron Justin Sun, are prominent for each other for some time and patently signed an agreement not yet became public. Some hearings say that in fact, an official announcement would be passing from Alibaba that would concern a partnership with Tron.
As soon as Tron’s Mainnet is online I expect Justin [Sun] to take another step forward and make the partnership already agreed with Alibaba public. And let me clarify: the agreement has already been made, but Alibaba has waited for the launch of the Mainnet in order to solve the problems they have in accepting cryptocurrencies. Another aspect of this announcement is that we think that Jack [Ma] is about to make sure that TRX is added to some high profile exchanges after the announcement has been made public.
As claimed in the ICO Journal statements, this source would be internal to the same Tron team. Although there is no guarantee that they are veracious but, as known, financial markets often like the same indiscretions.
If the partnership were to turn reality, then the largest online market space in the world would be about to accept cryptocurrency payments. In fact, Alibaba Group also holds the Taobao, Tmall and Aliexpress marketplaces, as well as the Alipay payment platform.
Price of TRON at the moment of press: $0,071699
