What else did Sun say? He noted that he would direct both personal funds and TRON stock to help crypto companies. Sun added that the projects will go through a due diligence process before receiving funding.

As for the decline in the cryptocurrency market, the TRON founder believes that the worst is over:

“I think currently the de-leverage process is passed the worst time. So we just need to clean it up and move forward. I don’t think market will be super bullish, of course.”

On June 21, cryptocurrency exchange FTX provided BlockFi with a $250 million loan. The exchange later issued another loan to the platform with an option of its redemption. In addition to BlockFi, FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried supported other projects. For example, his company Alameda Research provided a loan to the Voyager Digital platform, which suspended all operations and later filed for bankruptcy.
