Tron Foundation disclosed in its latest tweet that it would be operating jointly with Baidu, a China-based internet giant, to utilize their cloud solutions. The tweet validates a number of unauthorized stories that have been broadcasting since Oct. 13. The initial sign that the essence of the Baidu-TRON union would be particularly focused on cloud service procurement.
Earlier this week, there were rumors around a potential alliance between Justin Sun’s Tron (TRX) and Chinese Internet Search Giant Baidu. According to CoinTelegraph, Baidu Cloud and TRON have settled an agreement to collaborate in terms of “basic cloud business,” describing that both companies will work to increase the blockchain progress and to create, work and debug blockchain outcomes” based on Baidu Cloud. Prominently, the cooperation between the two companies remains centered on the procurement and use of Baidu’s fundamental cloud computing resources, rather than being a link at the blockchain business level.
In this collaboration, both companies will work on the Blockchain Commercialization Super Partner Program 1.0. This will drive the research method in the arena of blockchain for the internet service-provider and will help in creating a reliable blockchain ecosystem for the society with the participation of numerous trading companies.
Before today’s official confirmation, TRON CEO Justin Sun indicated on Twitter Oct. 12, a secret “partnership” with an unnamed “industry giant” that is valued at “tens of billions of dollars.”

This is not the first time Baidu and blockchain are in the news. In the month of July 2018, the Chinese internet giant had launched a blockchain-based photo validating and sharing service. They had also added a proprietary token to incentivize users to adopt their software that gives a blockchain intellectual property record.
In this, when users upload their original images through the application, the blockchain’s participating nodes, which could be third party photo stock agents and copyright protection organizations, will validate the originality of the images. If approved, the nodes timestamp the critical information and save it to XuperChain. This produces verifiable data that can be used in the event of a copyright dispute later on.
Baidu is a Chinese multinational technology firm concentrating on Internet-related services and results, and artificial intelligence. It is headquartered at the Baidu Campus in Beijing’s Haidian District. Their internet platform has different apps and services. It has over 2 billion active users worldwide. Baidu’s independent driving project “Apollo” is one of the world’s most advanced AI programs. It has more than 100 global partners as of 2018, including BYD, Dongfeng, Microsoft, Intel, Nvidia, Daimler AG, ZTE, Grab, Ford, Hyundai, and Honda. Baidu is the 2nd largest search engine in the world, holding 76.05% market share in China’s search engine market.
