Inferring from TRON Foundation’s reply to @agboifesinachi, the winners of the TRON New Year Campaign need to DM their TRX addresses to the foundation in order to receive their rewards for the campaign.
According to a recent press release on TRON Foundation’s official Medium blog, the company announced that it would be joining the ALS Association for #VoiceYourLove awareness campaign.
The press release starts off with:
“TRON Foundation, one of the largest blockchain protocols for decentralized applications, is joining the ALS Association for #VoiceYourLove, an awareness campaign to find treatments and a cure for people afflicted with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.”
Talking about the #VoiceYourLove campaign, the press release said:
“The #VoiceYourLove campaign, kicking off in time for Valentine’s Day celebrations of love and affection, challenges people to use their phone or tablet to create a video expressing love for people who’ve been meaningful to their lives — whether that’s family, friends, colleagues or even strangers. For those who wish to donate, voiceyourlove.org is the official campaign website.”
Talking about working with ALS Association, Justin Sun, the Founder and CEO of TRON Foundation, said:
“I’m proud to be working with ALS Association to raise money and awareness for a terrible disease. The TRON and BitTorrent community has over 100 million people, and it’s statistically possible that thousands of you are afflicted with ALS. In your honor, I’m donating $250,000 and urging others in the blockchain industry to voice their love by donating to help find a cure.”
Talking about the campaign further, the press release said:
“Sun joins actors Renée Zellweger and Courteney Cox, who are among the first celebrities to join the campaign. Voiceyourlove.org, which hosts the celebrity videos, helps the community learn how to get involved, and serves to accept donations. People are encouraged to post their videos to favorite social media channels with the hashtag #VoiceYourLove, and to tag friends and encourage them to join the #VoiceYourLove campaign.”
Talking about ALS, the press release said:
“ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Over the course of the disease, people living with ALS lose the ability to move, to speak, and eventually, to breathe. ALS is always fatal, usually within two to five years of diagnosis.”
Talking about TRON’s role in the campaign, the press release said:
“As part of the campaign, TRON plans to use the distributed ledger technology of blockchain to track where donations are disbursed, with the goal of providing a platform for more transparency into recipient charitable organizations. The company plans to release that information upon completion of the campaign. Binance Charity Foundation has also pledged an additional $150,000 in support of the campaign and invites all interested participants to donate with cryptocurrencies through its blockchain-powered donation platform: www.binance.charity. All interested donors are able to donate in BTC, ETH, and BNB through this portal.”
Talking about ALS Association, the press release said:
“The ALS Association is the largest private funder of ALS research in the world. The Association funds global research collaborations, provides assistance for people with ALS and their families through our nationwide network of chapters and certified clinical care centers, and advocates for better public policies for people with ALS. The ALS Association builds hope and enhances quality of life while urgently searching for new treatments and a cure. For more information about The ALS Association, visit our website at www.alsa.org.”
