A quick glance at Coinmarketcap reveals that Tron (TRX) is holding its own in terms of price amidst a sea of red. The digital asset is one of the few major cryptocurrencies least affected by Bitcoin’s nosedive from $11.600 to $10,460 in the last few hours. The other digital asset in the top 20 still exhibiting gains is Polkadot (DOT).
According to Coinmarketcap, Tron’s value has increased by 24.8% in the last 24 hours. In the process, TRX has edged out EOS from the number 12 spot with $300 million in market capitalization separating the two digital assets. Below is a screenshot from the rankings website demonstrating this fact.

On the 30th of August, Justin Sun promised the Tron community a new adventure which he was going to announce in the days to follow. The adventure was revealed on the 31st of August and was in the form of SUN Genesis Mining. Below is the tweet by Mr. Sun revealing the new DeFi feature on the Tron network.
