Tron is now the first blockchain platform to be featured in the Samsung Galaxy Store.
While Tron has already been supported by Samsung’s Blockchain Wallet, in addition to Bitcoin, and Ethereum, a new section in the app store offers smartphone users in the US and Europe a dedicated place to download the network’s decentralized applications.
Users can access a slate of DApps on their phones including Blockchain Cuties, Super Player, Meerkat Mining and Timeloop, bringing the emerging technology to a mainstream audience.
According to DAppRadar, Tron’s titles rank among the top 10 alongside applications built on Ethereum, EOS and WAX.
The company continues to build out its ecosystem through a number of acquisitions and partnerships. In 2018 Tron acquired BitTorrent, with over 100 million active users. At the end of last year, DLive, a top streaming platform, migrated to Tron, boasting over five million active monthly users.
Tron founder Justin Sun says the dedicated section on the Samsung Galaxy Store allows developers to build on Tron and bring their applications directly to smartphone users.
“With Samsung Galaxy Store, we are taking our collaboration to the next level by integrating both ecosystems together.”
Entrepreneurs working in the DApp space are continuing to innovate with offerings designed to make blockchain-based applications more attractive to everyday consumers by using marketing strategies that have grown massive user bases on major platforms like YouTube, Spotify and Apple Music.
Dapp.com has just announced the upcoming launch of new features powering a “front page of blockchain” and “playlists” for a user’s favorite blockchains. It will also allow a user to perform a number of advanced searches enabling a consumer to find a nearby pizza store that accepts cryptocurrency or to earn crypto by contributing content for other users.
To kick off the beta launch on Thursday, Dapp.com has partnered with Tron and is promising a crypto reward of 1.5 million TRX, Tron’s native cryptocurrency.
