TRON DAO’s Recent Achievements: From TRON Builder Tour Stops to HackaTRON Season 5 Finale

The past few months have been nothing short of dynamic for TRON DAO. Every event has further solidified TRON’s position in the blockchain space. Reflecting on our recent achievements and planning ahead, the enthusiasm in the TRON community is evident.

The second half of the TRON Builder Tour started at Stanford with over 50 participants attending. A diverse spectrum of blockchain enthusiasts, developers, and students all connected, making this event an opportunity for innovation. Beyond the $500 worth of bounties and pitching opportunities in collaboration with HTX Ventures, formerly known as Huobi Ventures, Stanford was where the future of blockchain seemed to be taking shape. As we transitioned to the Princeton University stop, in collaboration with the Princeton Blockchain Club, nearly 100 participants attended, ranging from students and blockchain professionals. A prize pool of $8,000 was awarded, along with insights from industry experts in the blockchain space. Congratulations to the projects who won:


  • 1st Place: DevChain ($1,250)
  • 2nd Place: Cabby ($1,000)
  • 3rd Place: Troncert ($750)
  • Runner-Ups: TronXChange, print(“”) break, and TRON Ethereum Bridge ($500 each)
