Compared to December’s ranking last year, Bitcoin lost several positions: at the time, despite the slightly lower score of 103.9, it was in 9th place.
Although the project took second place, relations between Tron and the Chinese government are far from positive. In 2019 Justin Sun, founder and CEO of Tron revealed that the Chinese authorities had questioned the legal status of the platform.
In July of the same year, the police had even surrounded a Tron office in Beijing. At the time, the media claimed that law enforcement officers broke into the building, but Sun denied the news.
