As first highlighted by Misha Lederman, Ethereum (ETH) accomplished the same feat last January, 542 days after its own mainnet launch. This means that TRON hit 1 million accounts roughly 3-times faster than Ethereum.

While this comparison is interesting, it ultimately isn’t that revealing, given the fact the cryptocurrency market and awareness when Ethereum first launched was a fraction of what it is today.
There are other metrics that better exemplify the relative growth of the TRON network. For instance, last November, TRON officially surpassed the highest single-day transaction total for Ethereum. Since that time, TRON’s daily transactions have more than doubled to 3.3 million.
While TRON has seemingly taken the lead from a metrics standpoint, Ethereum recently took a step toward being able to process 1 million transactions per second after Red Eyes, the first version of the Raiden Network (RDN), a protocol for scaling token transfers on Ethereum, was successfully deployed on the Ethereum mainnet.
TRX is currently down 14.5% on the day to $0.019728, giving the project a $1.31 billion market cap and making it the 9th largest coin in the AltDex 100 Index (ALT100), a benchmark index for large-cap cryptocurrencies and tokens.
