TRON is a public blockchain attempting to become the core infrastructure for a decentralized internet. Its mainnet was launched on May 31st 2018.
TRON relies on a Delegated Proof-of-Stake (DPoS) mechanism in which 27 Super Representatives rotate every 6 hours to validate blocks and transactions.
Smart contracts can be written in Solidity and compiled on the TRON Virtual Machine (TVM). The network also supports native tokens (TRC-10). Also, developers can access full nodes running in the cloud provided by TronGrid.
TRON supports popular tokens like BTT Token (BTT) and USD Tether (USDT). Since its launch, TRON has become one of the most widely used programmable blockchains for decentralized applications.
