TRON (TRX) was a top cryptocurrency in 2017 according to CoinMarketCap. But what is Tron? How is TRX used? And most importantly, how can we buy it from the Philippines?

TRON Overview

The aim of Tron is to become the blockchain for digital entertainment content. It has partnerships with Asian bike sharing company oBike and even Game.com. There was an intention to launch a game similar to Cryptokitties on the Tron platform and recently acquired BitTorrent.

This article had a slight modification on October 2, 2018.

If Tron becomes successful, it will become the platform where digital content producers and users will meet. It will the place where users will buy digital content such as games, and even music. That is its vision.

Behind Tron is Mr. Justin Sun. A graduate of Hupan and Peking Universities. He is one of the first students of Hupan University, which was founded by Jack Ma himself.

How to buy TRX in the Philippines

What you are going to buy is not TRON, but Tronix (TRX) – its currency.

Also, there’s no direct way to buy TRX ala Coins.ph style. You can’t convert your PHP to TRX directly just like how you probably do it with bitcoins.

Before you hit the back button, remember that most cryptocurrencies are not traded against the Pesos or even USD or even any other fiat currencies. Virtually all altcoins are traded against bitcoin.

Update: Buy TRX on Abra

Abra supports depositing fiat via local banks and through credit cards. You can exchange bitcoins for ADA within the Abra App. Should in case you want to cash out, you can do via partner merchants like Tambunting.

We cannot recommend any other exchanges to buy TRONIX yet beside Binance.

Can I keep Tronix at Coins.ph?

No, you cannot. Coins.ph only supports BTC, ETH, and BCH at the moment.
