Tron Community Reaction to The News
The Tron community did not take long to express their excitement about the news. One tweet by @RoDijk1 gave impressive stats on how big of an announcement this is:
The company controls 66% of China’s online search market, according to StatCounter. Its closest competitor, Alibaba’s Shenma, controls just 14% of the market.
Popular Tron Community member @WLFOFMYST expressed some doubt that it is indeed Baidu.
Well….the speculation is running wild; like all of the
@HulkHogan fans used to do back in the day. It’s great, I love it! It will create a media frenzy once again. One thing…I would say Baidu is not it. That partnership was already announced long ago.
He would later give his final thoughts on the whole partnership speculation in the following tweet:
✍️ Final thoughts on partnership:
The rise in price leads me to believe that it is most likely Baidu. With the price of #TRON reacting to the news, it tells me the leak is most likely credible. Price could VERY WELL be in the process of getting “baked in” atm. $trx #trx #tron
