Tron (TRX) founder Justin Sun said he was appointed as the Ambassador, Permanent Representative of Grenada to the World Trade Organization (WTO), and now he’s stepping away from the day-to-day operations at the Tron Foundation.

At 11:31 UTC, TRX, ranked 23rd by market capitalization, traded at USD 0.0834 and was down 1.4% in an hour. The price dropped 5% in a day. TRX is up 168% in a year.

“A truly inclusive #financialinfrastructure that belongs to all mankind should be #unlimited, #decentralized, and #thresholdless. The next milestone for the industry is to establish a more harmonized relationship with international regulatory jurisdictions,” Sun tweeted today.

According to him, “sovereign states are the most fundamental building blocks of the world order.”

“The due recognition of the #blockchain industry by sovereign states will be the final milestone towards achieving a truly decentralized financial infrastructure,” he added.

“I look forward to the opportunity to represent Grenada and work with WTO leadership to reinvigorate global trade in various ways, particularly the development of a robust digital economy internationally,” Sun was quoted as saying in an announcement, shared with Cryptonews.com.

Meanwhile, Coindesk reported, citing an open letter by Sun, that the Tron Foundation will dissolve by next year and three super nodes associated with Sun will soon retire from Tron’s technical grid. Also, the 27 super representatives on the Tron blockchain will be elected by the Tron community, the report added.

Sun also reportedly said that he will continue promoting Tron’s brand while stepping away from the day-to-day operations at the Tron Foundation.
