The idea of using blockchain to verify the authenticity of luxury items offered by Trona is so flawed. Let's say that you want to buy a piece of fine art. In that case, you would have to trust the competence of the first appraiser, and only him because his final verdict would be written on a blockchain, thus immutable. But what if that appraiser has failed to distinguish the fake from the original at that time and the fact of forgery was discovered later? Would it be necessary to create a new chain in order to write down the correct information?

Trona is definitely not the kind of blockchain project that will reach for the stars, but the idea that it presents is quite valuable. Fashion might represent a narrow niche of the whole retail industry, but it is certainly one of the most attractive investment-wise. I am more than certain that Trona will not be able to produce any meaningful results, but it serves as an indicator of a trend towards combining blockchain and the business of fashion.

Why would fashion retailers need something like TRONA to sell their high-end products for cryptocurrencies? All they need is to partner with some Bitcoin payment solution and offer customers a means to pay in BTC, or any other popular cryptocurrency. No one would want to go through the trouble of buying some unknown token to pay for posh merchandise in selected online stores. TRONA's business model is flawed at its core.

With TRONA's website down and the lack of info online, there are quite a few red flags here, and it will be interesting to see whether the project actually managed to raise any decent amount, considering its shortcomings.

As mentioned, the project does not have a lot of details released. Worse still, their website cannot be accessed. This prevents investors from accessing the project's white paper and getting information about the project, which won't inspire anyone to invest blindly.
