Tron Comes Up with New Plan for Improved TRX Adoption and Scaling Crypto Use Cases
The Tron Foundation has been prioritizing the innovations in the industry, helping to expand the use of cryptocurrency to make it more of a mainstream empire. The Tron Accelerator competition, announced by Justin Sun, is motivating others to get involved, and it is propelling the platform forward quickly.
Tom Mao, an executive for the Tron Foundation, recently sat down for an interview with Code Xpert to discuss the changes that Tron has been making.
One of the topics discussed has to do with the scalability of the TRON Network, which the creators believe has eliminated the problems that Bitcoin and Ethereum were facing. The proof-of-work system has been reducing the amount of energy used and has supported the mining cartels.
Elaborating, Mao said, “So what Tron does, what it brings to the table that’s different from Bitcoin and Ethereum – especially different from Ethereum – is that it’s essentially using a very unique delegated proof of stake system where TRX hodlers have the right to vote for Super Representatives who they feel best help with the Tron ecosystem and widespread adoption of TRX. So that helps to really democratize and decentralize the power – as opposed to the mining cartels – down to basically you and I who can buy TRX and exercise our voting rights.”
He continues, discussing the application process for becoming a Super Representative Candidate (SRC). The official role as a Super Representative is to “produce blocks for the Tron network.”
However, Mao notes that the adoption of TRX is truly the goal, which would hopefully lead to the sponsorship of products that help create dApps. As far as the election, Mao said,
“The top 27 Super Representative Candidates become Super Representatives, and the elections are held every six hours.”
On the technical side of Tron, new tools are becoming available to help developers with the creation of dApps, which have been experiencing success in their endeavors. The current tools that seem to have had the greatest impact lately has been:
- TronBox, which offers the entire framework needed to develop a dApp and bring it onto the Tron network
- TronStudio, which offers the necessary protocols for testing, collecting, and launching smart contracts
- TronGrid, which is an API service that connects with the blockchain on Tron
During the interview, Mao encouraged developers that are still working with Ethereum to come on board with Tron instead. With multiple incentives and comprehensive tools, developers will need to decide if these tools meet their needs with greater ease than Ethereum can.
