TRON takes steps to support Bitcoin Layer 2 solutions

TRON Network has partnered with Merlin Chain, according to a recent X announcement by co-founder Justin Sun. Merlin Chain is the native Bitcoin Layer 2 solution that recently raised funds from investors for its development plans. 

The native scaling solution integrates zero-knowledge rollups, decentralized oracle network and on-chain Bitcoin fraud proof modules. 

The partnership will help the Layer 2 chain expand its Bitcoin interoperability, utilities and boost its financial accessibility. TRON has over 210 million users, this could help Merlin Chain scale while it takes the former closer to its goal of developing and supporting BTC Layer 2 chains. 

TRON price hits new yearly high

TRON price climbed to a new 2024 peak of $0.1413 on Tuesday. Justin Sun’s announcement and the recent partnership are likely catalyzing the blockchain token’s gains. TRON price is likely to rally towards a level previously seen in May 2021, at $0.1530. 

The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) and Awesome Oscillator (AO) signal that the uptrend is likely exhausted and TRON price could suffer a correction. TRON could sweep support at the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement of its rally to its 2024 peak, before resuming its climb towards the $0.1530 target.
