TRON, a blockchain-based decentralized platform founded by the former CEO, Justin Sun announced that they have intentions to expand to Suriname, a country in South America to explore investment opportunities and promote blockchain technology in the mentioned country.

Delegates from TRON visited Suriname President Chandrikapersad Santokhi last April 28th and discussed the collaboration that the two sides would be doing, such as promoting the blockchain technology and potential use cases in Suriname. Since the meeting of the TRON delegates and the Surinamese government, they aim to proceed throughout the Caricom region to raise awareness of blockchain technology and explore investment possibilities.

President Santokhi has assigned representatives from the Ministry of BIBIS to coordinate with TRON and since the delegates from the blockchain company departed last April 29th, the said government branch would be the one responsible for maintaining the collaborative efforts.

Two of the key features that the Surinamese government pointed out about blockchain technology are its top-notch security features and the continuous development of blockchain technology.

As Suriname’s Parliament Member Asiskumar Gajadien said:

“Blockchain is a decentralized technology for efficiently capturing transactional information in a way that makes it difficult or impossible to modify, hack or tamper with the system. As technology changes, we as a country should not sleep,”

DNA members Wang Chuanrui, Asiskumar Gajadien, and Latin America General Manager Zyanya Bejarano joined the TRON delegation in their recent visit to Suriname.

Advantages of Having TRON in Suriname

The collaboration between TRON and Suriname can be beneficial for both sides as we do believe there is a possibility that TRX or any TRON-based token can be used as a payment method in the said country and as they plan in adapting to more up-to-date technology, especially for the finance sector.

In the next following months, if ever TRON has been added as a payment method in the country, expect to see massive growth of new users having TRON accounts and more businesses and financial platforms in Suriname to adapt and accept TRON.

Having TRON’s blockchain technology in their country can definitely make a positive impact, especially with the financial transactions, such as its fast transaction speeds and up-to-date security features, as this is one way of leveraging blockchain technology to benefit the people of Suriname.
