The price of TRON (TRX), a blockchain platform building a decentralized internet, has jumped in recent trading after leading crypto exchange Bitfinex announced that it would introduce EUR, GBP and JPY trading pairs.

As a result, TRX is up over 6% and the altcoin has passed Dash (DASH) for the 11th spot in the AltDex 100 Index (ALT100), a benchmark index for large-cap cryptocurrencies and tokens. Now the two coins are trading neck-to-neck.

TRON gained further momentum after Exodus, an all-in-one cryptocurrency wallet and trading app, announced that it now supports the project’s mainnet. Additionally, TRON recently revealed plans to integrate the project’s blockchain into BitTorrent.

Dubbed “Project Atlas,” the new initiative will connect BitTorrent’s peer-to-peer network and its 100 million monthly active users to the TRON blockchain. Included in Project Atlas are BitTorrent protocol extensions, a custom token built on the TRON blockchain and an in-client token economy.

TRX’s market cap is now within $60 million of the 10th place spot on the ALT100, which is currently held by IOTA (IOT).
