TRON to expand into BTC Layer 2 solutions

On February 15, Justin Sun announced TRON’s plan to expand into Ordinals and Bitcoin Layer 2 solutions. Sun plans to expand to Bitcoin network-based assets by bridging them to TRON. Sun informed his 3.5 million followers that TRON tokens, USD Tether (USDT), Tron (TRX), Bittorent (BTT), Just (JST), Sun (SUN), NFT, WINkLINK (WIN) and USD Coin (USDC) will be integrated into the Bitcoin network, via cross-chain technology.

The move will enable TRON’s tokens to interact with the Bitcoin network. Sun states that the innovative approach will bring TRON’s $22 billion Total Value Locked (TVL) to Bitcoin. Sun revealed that stablecoins, other token types in the TRON ecosystem, Layer 2s and Bitcoin Ordinals will inject financial vitality into BTC. 

The TRON founder plans to build a user-friendly wallet and tools to support BRC-20 tokens. 

In the roadmap, Sun explains that TRON will collaborate with multiple Bitcoin Layer 2 protocols, announcing partnerships, staking initiatives and aim to launch a protocol with low fees and ensure the safety of the Proof-of-Work blockchain. 

At the time of writing, TRX price is up 1.38% on the day. The altcoin is exchanging hands at $0.13137 and yielded over 6% weekly gains for holders.
