What is TRON?
TRON (TRX) is a Top 20 Cryptocurrency whose aim is to ‘decentralize’. Faster than Bitcoin (3 - 6 transactions per second or TPS) and Ethereum at (25 TPS), Tron’s claimed 2,000 TPS makes it a fast and efficient blockchain platform.
TRON is geared towards providing a user-pays, decentralized-content platform that anyone can use.
In 2018, the Tron Foundation bought online file-sharing company BitTorrent for $120 million (USD) to accelerate its commercial aims in content and media. Following the acquisition, it also launched the BitTorrent Token (BTT) on the Tron blockchain network - its first native utility token or 'TRC-10’ token.
If Tron can drive real-world adoption and usage of its TRX token in media, content, and gaming, the Tron network could have a bright future.
