Quick fact on the Tron project
Justin Sun founded the Tron Foundation in Singapore in 2017, with the aim of creating a protocol that could “decentralize the internet,” and support decentralized applications.
- Beginning on Ethereum, it migrated onto its own blockchain in the following year.
- According to the foundation, the July 2018 purchase of BitTorrent further cemented TRON’s leadership in pursuing a decentralized ecosystem.
- In 2019, Tron and Tether announced a partnership to launch Tether Tron Whale transfers 306 million TRX on the blockchain as a TRC-20 token, the protocol’s equivalent of an ERC-20 designed to improve liquidity on crypto exchanges.
- According to the project’s whitepaper, the network is based on a proof-of-stake system, in which 27 ‘super representatives’ or SRs, produce blocks for the network. A total of 336,384,000 TRX are awarded annually to the SRs.
