Blockchain-based blogging and social media website Steemit Inc. has entered into a partnership with a blockchain-based ecosystem TRON, which is focused on moving old STEEM token to a new TRON based STEEM token, an official announcement states.
According to the announcement, the partnership will also include giveaways to the existing TRX users with the new TRON-based STEEM token.
TRON CEO Justin Sun claims that together with Steemit, TRON will usher "in a new era of decentralized social networking."
Steemit Head Ned Scott says he is excited to see a strategic partner attempt to bring it to new heights.
Last year, Steemit appeared to be in the middle of the scandal after it suspended a hacker group called The Dark Overlord (TDO) account on the platform.
The hackers published secret documents, containing information on the tragedy of September 11, 2001.
Many in the cryptocurrency community disagreed with the idea that Steemit may block any kind of content within its explorer, even though all data which is published on the Steem blockchain network remains unchanged.
