Tron’s new platform meets the needs of crowdfunding to help developers in gaining funding for dApps that they create. The platform, launched on Tron, is called SEEDGerminator and is an easy to use platform where developers simply have to submit their projects and await confirmation.
Sesameseed, an Accelerator for Tron Network, tweeted about the crowdfunding platform it powers along with a Youtube video to explain how it works.
#SEEDGerminator is LIVE!

Sesameseed is a popular group which won votes from the community of Tron to become a super representative and secure Tron’s network. It is also known for the Seeditprotocol which is seen to become a hit with the benefit of sending and receiving TRX through Telegram and Twitter. The Sesameseed group is established to benefit Tron, dApp developers and the overall community.
How will this benefit Tron?
Tron will gain exposure in terms of an encouraging ecosystem, while dApp developers will have an opportunity to showcase their creativity in dApps created and the community of Tron will gain from airdrops and early access to the projects.
Sesameseed enlightened us about one of the projects called Poppy which is on SEEDgerminator for funding.
As per the blog post-
“Poppy will provide its customers an easy to implement Tron payment integration on the Clover POS platform. Enabling customers to purchase items in TRX or basic Tron tokens at the retail will provide the customer a more robust experience will significantly reducing the transaction fee’s of traditional credit based payment methods. Seamless in-store and online ordering for clients, and a minimal barrier to entry for vendors will immediately open tron to hundreds of thousands of retailers.”
Does the funding make sense?
However Reddit user ‘jimbofbx’ highlighted that the funding needed for Poppy does not make sense-
‘Funding Needed: 240,000 USD
Timeline to launch: 12–16 weeks
Expenses — Development Team
— Marketing Team
— Project Management/Community engagement Team
— Payment System build out/Tron Integration — Mobile and Tablet build out
— Hardware Manufacturing
— TronCard Manufacturing
— Distribution method (Hardware and TronCards)
— Popup Location and Build Out
— Social media marketing program
— Seedit Application
This doesn’t add up at all’
Funding, not a problem.
With the said platform funding of $240,000 may not be sufficient for the list of expenses. However, the funding went through the roof, at the time of writing it has gained 2,820,781 TRX as funding which is more than 5 times than the required funding of 500,000 TRX.
Tron is fulfilling every promise it has made. The SEEDgerminator announcement was made on June 21, 2018, and has finally been released.
