Looks like Baidu is Tron’s ‘tens of billion’ partner

According to a crypto news site

Yesterday, the CEO and Founder of Tron Justin Sun, posted in his Twitter handle about a partnership with an unknown industry giant worth ‘tens of billions’, and invited the community to guess its name.

As expected, many people began to speculate about the identity of this particular partner, with random guesses such as Toys’R’us, Coinbase, xHamster, to more elaborated like Alibaba (due to Sun being a graduated from the university owned by the founder of that company, Jack Ma), Ripple (as stated by crypto payment platform TokenPay), and Clover POS (in reference to TRX-based Poppy to be adapted to this platform).

Of course, there were several people betting on China’s biggest search engine Baidu. However, according to a crypto news website, this could be the industry giant Sun was talking about, for sure.

Via Twitter, has recently made public that an insider from the Tron Foundation told them that the company in question was none other than “the Google of China”. “Exclusive: #Tron to Cooperate with China's IT Giant #Baidu. The Tron team told CoinNess  that a partnership had been confirmed between Tron and China's IT giant Baidu,” reads the tweet, adding that next week, Baidu Cloud will confirm this news.

At the time of writing, neither Sun nor any other member of the Tron Foundation has confirmed or debunked this claim.

Community and market reaction

Following the hint, several users have expressed their excitement over the idea of a partnership between the ‘decentralized internet’ protocol and China’s biggest search engine, while others remain skeptical over the fact of this site leaking the information before any representative of Tron. Then again, some users think that if it was false, Justin or any other high profile individual at Tron would have already take down such claim.

On the other hand, the market has reacted positively to the news. Shortly after the leak, the TRX began to rise from $0.022 to $0.0235 in its TRX/USD exchange rate, still quoting at that price at the moment.
