He also addressed the situation in China, specifically the outbreak of the coronavirus, which has been spreading through the country for quite a long time now, with thousands of confirmed cases of infection, and nearly a thousand dead, according to recent reports. According to the announcement from the Tron Foundation, the company has decided to postpone the deadline for the Sun Network Developer Challenger.

Originally, the deadline for the participants to submit their project was February 15th. However, due to the outbreak, the deadline was postponed by one month, and the challenge is now scheduled to end on March 15th. This gives participants another month to perfect their projects and submit them to the Foundation for review.

As for TRON (TRX), the coin currently sees a 1.60% increase in price, although it currently still sits at the 13th spot on the list of highest-ranking cryptocurrencies, with the price of $0.021749, and the market cap of $1.45 billion.
