Also, users may have the option to swap back their BTCTRON back to BTC, the same way on how users converted BTC to BTCTRON and there are no fees associated with swapping BTC to BTCTRON or BTCTRON to BTC.


What is Poloniex?

Poloniex is one of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges that was launched in 2014 and is based out of Wilmington, Delaware, in the United States. It was very previously acquired by Circle, a Goldman-Sachs backed company.

The exchange also provides its customers with a secure trading environment and advanced charts and data analysis tools. The platform enables users to buy and sell cryptocurrencies such as litecoin, namecoin, dogecoin, and more.

What an amazing time to be part of the TRON community and TRON Foundation have been raising the bar when it comes to the possibilities and pushing the boundaries on TRON and the future looks bright for BTCTRON.

TRON’s token wrapping technology has made waves in the industry and adding BTCTRON on Poloniex, this will be another achievement for both TRON and Poloniex.
