Back in mid August, Ethereum World News had highlighted that the Tron Community members had taken upon themselves to raise awareness about their favorite coin of TRX and the corresponding project. The method the community was using, was by Tipping TRX on twitter via a new platform known as SeedIt or GoSeedit. At the beginning of the movement by the Tron Community on twitter, prominent celebrities and personalities were tipped TRX. They included individuals such as the Pope, Kanye West and Snoop Dogg.
GoSeedIt Expands to Telegram
It is with this background that it is no surprise that the tipping via GoSeedIt has expanded to the popular messaging app of Telegram. This App has been known as being a hotbed of crypto and blockchain chats thus making TRX tipping a very strategic move for the team at GoSeedIt and also for the Tron Community.
In the Twitter announcement on the 2nd of September, the GoSeedIt Team stated the following:
You may have heard, Airdrop and Rain are new features for
#Seedit. They’re currently in Beta on Telegram. Admins of any Telegram group can now make it rain on their members!

So How Do You Get Started on Telegram?
- The first thing to do on the Telegram App, is to engage the @GoSeedItBot
- Create a TRX address on Telegram by engaging the bot or if you are a new recipient of some TRX on Telegram, an address has already been created for you. This address can be changed to that which you also use on Twitter
- Sending TRX is done by replying to a message and using the /tip command, for example:
Sending a token
/tip <amount> <token name>
/tip 100 Bitcoin
In conclusion, TRX is now available for tipping on the Telegram App. This in turn makes the digital asset more visible to the general Telegram community as well as the numerous crypto and blockchain chat groups on the messaging platform. TRX joins a list of other cryptocurrencies you can tip with on Telegram. They include Reddcoin (RDD) and XRP just to name a few.
