Leading cryptocurrency e-commerce platform Shopping.io has continued to onboard several big names in the financial services industry as it makes another landmark move today. This time, it has collaborated with Justin Sun’s blockchain project – TRON.
Shopping.io Integrates TRON
Shopping.io revealed Wednesday that it had completed a partnership deal with TRON, a popular blockchain project dedicated to building a truly decentralized Internet, to establish its position as a one-stop e-commerce shop for crypto holders.
TRON utilizes peer-to-peer decentralized technology to eliminate middlemen in the supply chain, allowing product developers and content creators to sell directly to consumers. Led by Justin Sun, the blockchain platform has its native token as TRX and is currently among the top 30 coins on CoinMarketCap, with a market cap of around $6 billion.
TRX Holders Can Now Shop With Their Tokens
The press release shared with CryptoPotato explained that a part of the partnership will enable TRX holders to make purchases with their tokens on Shopping.io and several other top e-commerce platforms including Amazon, eBay, Walmart, and Etsy.
Additionally, TRX token holders will receive a 2% discount on all items on their cart when they use the coin to make purchases for two weeks starting from August 25th.
Commenting on the matter, TRON’s founder, Justin Sun said, “We are thrilled to be partnering with Shopping.io to allow our community to use $TRX on major E-commerce websites like Amazon,eBay, and Etsy. Shopping.io provides users with real-world applications for their portfolio.”
