The Tron (TRX) community was beside itself on Wednesday, Feb. 19 after founder Justin Sun’s address was shown to have voted in two Tron Foundation apps as a Super Representative (SR). Both Tron-Ace and Tron-Bet were voted in as Super Representatives by the Zion address, the same account which received 99 billion TRX from the coin’s genesis block.
Super Representatives are responsible for overseeing block production on Tron’s blockchain. As such, they receive a sizable portion of the coin rewards from each block. In plain terms, this means that Tron’s community rules were bypassed, arguably to further enrich its own foundation.
That’s despite Tron CEO Justin Sun’s insistence that he and his foundation have nothing to do with community voting.

TronWallet has implemented a new tool for exchanging tokens, called Swap. From now on, TronWallet users can easily change their Bitcoin, TRX and TRX-backed coins.
They do not have to rush to crypto exchanges to do that from now on – the new Swap tool will help them perform any token exchange.
In January this year, users became paying more attention to this new tool and its usage for exchanging coins spiked, since the new feature saves time. Swap volumes on TronWallet have grown tremendously over last month.
