Two entrepreneurs, one stage

NBA superstar Kobe Bryant was invited as a special guest at the summit. At niTROn summit 2019, Kobe Bryant and Justin Sun talked about entrepreneurship. Kobe said that the biggest challenge after leaving basketball is to have the courage to go on and do something else and to start over from the beginning. Kobe also stated that “you got to do things to be true to yourself”.

Justin agreed with Kobe’s view and talked about his own entrepreneurship in 2012. At that time, he was inspired by Jack Ma’s entrepreneurial spirit and praised the spirit of Kobe’s ‘Black Mamba’. Sometimes, an idea can sound crazy, but having constant effort and taking the challenge step-by-step will help us achieve our goal, just like the TRON team which work really hard to become an outstanding blockchain platform.

The two then discussed various topics such as team building, career dreams, winning strategies, missions, etc.

This was the first time Kobe Bryant has participated in the blockchain industry summit, which helped promoted the development of the blockchain industry. Furthermore, it also strengthens the position and awareness of TRON in the global decentralized market.

Jazz Kang, the Head of Market Strategy and Business Development of Swisscom, and Jay Chugh, Senior Product Director at Oracle had an intense discussion about “enterprise blockchain applications”.

At the conference, Jazz Kang shared how Swiss Telecom, the leading Swiss technology company, shifted its strategy to blockchain technology and brought more value to users.

Jay Chugh shared how he analyzes enterprise-level blockchain solutions and explore the disruptive role of blockchain technology in products.

Brian Wong, founder and CEO of Kiip, Kevin Xu from Mars Finance and Angela Tong, COO of Golden Finance, talked about “growth in blockchain”.

Kevin Xu stated that the first step to conducting a comprehensive survey is to understand the position in the industry chain and how scarce the resources are. These are important indicators for assessing business and the primary focus of growth. Only by knowing yourself can one effectively advance.

Angela Tong said what impressed her most is TRON. TRON combines Justin Sun’s personal brand image with the company’s brand image. Since Justin Sun is an attention getter, this has increased TRON exposure, it is a very smart move.

Brian Wong said that there is no need to fill people with too many technical details, but to prove it with user stories and their influences will eventually reach mainstream media in the world.

Overall, niTROn 2019 was a successful summit which gathered the most influential network resources in the blockchain industry. Let us look forward to the world’s largest blockchain decentralization system and the world’s largest decentralized P2P protocol token, together with the mission of the blockchain era and decentralization of the Internet!
