Tron price made a strong comeback on Tuesday.
Franklin Resources applied for its own Bitcoin ETF.
Tron’s user statistics are strong as the DeFi TVL soars.
Tron price popped on Tuesday as cryptocurrencies went through a short squeeze. The TRX coin jumped to a high of $0.082, the highest level since July 30th. It has soared by more than 135 from the lowest level in August.
US inflation data ahead
The main catalyst for the TRX price was a decision by Franklin Templeton to file for its spot Bitcoin ETF. It joins other large American companies like Ark Invest, Invesco, and Blackrock.
It is still unclear whether the SEC will accept these funds even though the companies have put in place strict surveillance clauses to prevent manipulation. Still, analysts believe that the SEC will ultimately accept these funds, thanks to the recent breakthrough by Grayscale Bitcoin Trust.
Franklin Resource’s application is a major one because of how big the fund is. It is one of the biggest companies in the US with over $1.5 trillion in assets under management (AUM). This makes it the 20th company in the industry.
Tron price also jumped as the total value locked (TVL) in its DeFi ecosystem continued rising. The TVL jumped to $5.7 billion, making it the second-biggest player in the sector after Ethereum.
Most dApps in Tron’s ecosystem have added more funds recently. For example, JustLend’s TVL has jumped by more than 7% in the past 7 days while JustStables, Sun, and stUSDT TVL has risen by over 5% in the same period.
Tron remains one of the most active blockchains in the industry. Data by DeFi Llama shows that the number of active users in the ecosystem were over 1.25 million in the past 24 hours. Its revenue in the same period was over $1 million.
The next catalyst for Tron price will be the upcoming US inflation data scheduled for Wednesday. These numbers are expected to show that inflation remained at an elevated level in August.
Tron price prediction
The daily chart shows that the TRX price has been in a strong bullish trend in the past few months. It has formed an ascending channel that is shown in black and has now moved to its middle point. Tron’s volume has been relatively elevated while the price remains above the 50-day moving average.
Therefore, the outlook for Tron is bullish, with the next level to watch being at $0.0851, the highest level on July 28th. The stop-loss of this trade will be at $0.077.
