Tron is a decentralized blockchain-based digital platform with its own cryptocurrency, Tronix (TRX). Tron, a Singapore non-profit organization founded in 2017, aspires to host a worldwide entertainment system for the cost-effective distribution of digital information. Tron, which was once promoted largely in Asia, has suddenly gone worldwide. As of August 2021, the site had over 50 million accounts. Tron was founded by Justin Sun, who is currently its CEO, and has headquarters in Singapore and San Francisco. Sun, who was born in 1990, is also the CEO of BitTorrent, a file-sharing application.

Comparison between Tron and Ethereum blockchain

The Tron network structure has been likened to the Ethereum platform, and it employs some of the same fundamental building pieces, such as decentralized applications (dApps), smart contracts, and tokens. Indeed, it has been chastised for perhaps going too far by borrowing rather than establishing the foundations of its platform. Tronix and Ethereum are showing symptoms of becoming competitors for the business of cryptocurrency traders. The quantity of USD Coin, a cryptocurrency linked to the US dollar that circulates on Tron, has topped 108 million USD less than a month after support for it was introduced.

Purpose of Tron

Tron was developed to directly compete with the media sector, especially web-based behemoths like Amazon and Netflix. Its tagline is Decentralize the Web, and its goal is to remove the corporate middlemen from the media consumption process. Beyond the present cryptocurrency surge, its future viability will undoubtedly be determined in part by the quality of programming it provides to its customers.

How it works

Tron began as an Ethereum-based currency before migrating to its own network in 2018. Investors have to exchange their Ethereum tokens for Tron's TRX coin. (The ethereum tokens were later deleted.) Tron, like Ethereum (ETH), has an account-based paradigm, which means that the cryptographic keys issued by its protocol may regulate access to both TRX and TRX token balances.

The Tron blockchain then conducts the data exchange over three layers:

-        Core layer, which follows instructions in Java and Solidity

-        Application layer, which was utilized by developers to create wallets and applications

-        Storage layer, which is designed to segment blockchain data

Tron has a delegated proof-of-stake method, which means it consumes far less power than rival currencies such as Bitcoin. Tron's architecture allows it can process considerably more transactions at once than proof-of-work systems like Bitcoin, which rely on a vast network of cryptocurrency miners.. Tron promises to be capable of processing 10,000 transactions per second with no transaction costs. Tron stated in its 2018 white paper that its delegated proof-of-work method could handle 2,000 transactions per second, compared to three for Bitcoin and 15 for Ethereum. Smart contracts and applications find it appealing because to its higher throughput and reduced expenses.
