Today, we’re talking with the CEO of TronWallet, Dio Ianakiara, about the TRON community, TronWallet’s achievements, ideas, and future plans.
U.Today: Dio, thank you for joining us! TronWallet was announced less than 1.5 years ago. Since the announcement, the results have been quite impressive to say the least. But let’s come back to those times – why did you decide to create this wallet? Why did you choose TRON?
Dio Ianakiara: About 3 years ago, we at Getty I/O were creating our first crypto wallet, and decided to keep investing in its development, features, and security measures. Our main goal was always to solve the problem of the user experience with a better and more easy to use mobile wallet that anyone around the world could utilize.
During that time, TRON announced a $1 million dollar fund to support developers, as well as the TRON Accelerator coding competition. After carefully reviewing TRON’s code, we loved the blockchain’s architecture and high performance, and quickly understood that a huge investment in terms of money and development had been put into the project.
Not only did we realize that TRON was the fastest but that it was also the most scalable blockchain at the time. This is what triggered us to choose TRON, We then took the decision to rebrand our crypto wallet as TronWallet. Looking back, it’s the best decision we’ve ever made.

U.Today: How did you manage to achieve 155,000 downloads in such a short amount of time?
Dio Ianakiara: I believe the reasons why we’ve been able to grow so fast is due to a mixture of hard work, having excellent developers, and a strong focus on community feedback to assist us with improving the mobile wallet experience. Having this amazing global and passionate community, combined with the best blockchain product developers at our disposal, is our secret sauce. This has led to TronWallet recording downloads from 183 counties.
