We are excited to expand TRON’s DeFi potential by partnering with the industry leader BitGo to bring integral cross-chain solutions such as Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) and Wrapped Ether to TRON.

Everyone may now use their BTC/ETH to enjoy all the benefits of the TRON DeFi ecosystem without the high gas fees on Ethereum!
