TRON is becoming an exception in the persistent bearish cryptocurrency market by attracting attention from far and wide. The currency is now being accepted as a means of payment in various platforms.
Blockchain startup Travala.com, according to a recent official Tweet, added TRX as a payment option on its platform thereby giving travelers the option of using TRX coins to book hotel rooms in over 550,000 properties in more than 82,000 destinations across the globe.

Using TRX to settle bills on Travala also comes with a host of benefits that includes some savings; users will be saving up to 10 percent when they make payments via cryptocurrencies making it a convenient and cost-effective way to do business thanks to the incentives associated with using the blockchain-powered decentralized network.
On what looks like good tidings for Justin Sun’s TRX coin, eToro also announced on Monday, March 25, 2019, it was adding TRX to make the total number of 15 the cryptocurrencies it is supporting. eToro announced via Twitter it was adding TRON in its stable enabling Tronics users to buy and sell TRX using fiat currencies. The announcement via eToro’s official Twitter account stated:

The news comes in the wake of zero commission trading for UK-based clients, and interested users are at liberty to use different payment platforms to buy and sell TRX including VISA, Mastercard, PayPal, UnionPay, Webmoney, YandexWallet, and others. Concerning the announcement, eToro’s Founder and CEO Yoni Assia teased Justin Sun to now open an eToro account:
Happy to add $TRON #CryptoAssets to @eToro, love their acquisition of @BitTorrent and their partnership with @binance @justinsuntron time for you to setup an account on @eToro 🙂 https://t.co/0u8FVdJhX9

In the meantime, Travala has started a crowdfunding campaign which has so far raised £186,630 from 174 investors.
The blockchain startup is still running in beta and already serves over 550,000 hotels in 210 countries. The company that was formerly known as Concierge wrapped up in April 2018 and partnered with Coingate following an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) that raised £2 million. Travala currently accepts over 40 coins including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Tron, DAI, XRP, and Litecoin.
The market is a little slow to respond with a positive outcome in terms of trading volume for TRX which according to CoinMarketCap remains at position 11 with a value counting $0.02 against the US Dollar and average trading volume $1,563,015,924, with recent reports suggesting more than half of Justin Sun’s followers are fake.
