Justin Sun is currently leading the vitality of Ethereum in terms of the number of Twitter followers. While Vitalik has implemented a strict no-giveaway policy, Justin Sun has promoted Tron on a large scale with lucrative incentives.
The Tron Foundation, under Justin Sun, has put in place aggressive marketing strategies to promote the use of USDT Tron and increase Tron’s presence on social media platforms. The Tron Foundation had announced a systematic giveaway of $ 20 million for USDT early adopters. The campaign is ongoing now as USDT-Tron holders deserve interest in their holdings.
Recently the winner of the brand new BMW Mini-Cooper of the USDT Car Lottery was announced. The lottery winner received 8,888 TRX tokens in addition to the $ 30,000 car.
Previously, Justin Sun had also issued a Tesla to promote the USDT tron.
“To celebrate the success of #BTT & # USDT– # TRON, I am planning a free cash transfer of USD 20 million. Good news – bad news – I can choose to give away more! First I will randomly get 1 winner for a #Tesla until March 27th. Choose! To apply, follow me and RT on this tweet! Easy! #Blockchain ”
Justin Sun has more followers than Vitalik
Additionally, the campaign among the Tron Foundations appears to be producing results, as the Justin Sun currently has more than 1.09 million followers on Twitter. While Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum, has around 849,000 followers.
The roughly 250,000 difference can be attributed to Tron’s popularity in China, but Ethereum is recognized worldwide and was released much before Tron. Therefore, the “re-tweet” and “follow” campaigns seem to attract a lot of people from outside the crypto space.
Tron Ambitious with USDT-Tron
Tron’s most recent big start after the BitTorrent token was the USD Tether based on the TRC20 token. USDT has been operating in cryptocurrency markets since 2015. It was first published on the OMNI platform and later expanded to include ERC-20.
While together they represent the same stablecoin USDT, they are exchanged and settled on their respective platforms. Hence, Tron’s drive to increase the percent usage of USDT-Tron is to increase the ubiquity of TRT-20-based USDT to create a wider ecosystem for decentralized applications on Tron. The interoperability of the various USDTs is limited on their respective platforms.

Justin Sun tweeted her goals to increase the dominance of using USDT-Tron:
# now occupies 2% of the total # Offer, 50 million from 2.5 billion. Goal for the 2nd quarter of 2019: overtaking # & Reach 10%. We will reach 50% of # in 2019!
