The hackathon event was divided into multiple DeFi categories such as lending, protocol interfaces, stablecoin, mining, DEX, NFT, and more.
Asides from their developer contest this year, the next month TRON went live with their TRON Century Mining campaign which features TRON-based tokens and they have officially secured over $1.3 Billion TVL within an hour. Within the same month, the most talked Bitcoin Standard Hashrate Token (BTCST) on Binance announced the launch of their smart contract on the TRON network.
By April, TRON becomes the first deflating digital currency in the world and its market cap had reached an all-time high of $10 billion. The TRX concluded its transition from inflation to deflation and asides from that transition they have started the TRON 5.0 Apollo upgrade which aims to connect all blockchains.
With that upgrade, it opened more doors for partnerships on TRON such as PancakeSwap officially launching TRX, BTT, and WIN mining on their platform to OKLink officially launching on the TRON blockchain.
