Sun, who is the CEO of the Tron Foundation, affirmed that improving the metrics was important to showcase the potential of the network and achieve true massive mainstream adoption. According to him, he has always ensured that all of the important reports are shared with the community because of this, so they can see the growth of the network as a whole.
This was the only good news of the week. Tronscan also reported that the total number of transactions until now reached 630 million. The 7-day transactions of the network were also the double of what its two main competitors, EOS and Ethereum (ETH) had during the same timeframe.
In related news, Tron also announced a list of community updates recently, which included the fact that eight new decentralized apps were launched, totalizing 561 active ones so far. The number of smart contracts also reached 1,371.
Tron is currently a strong competitor against Ethereum, the second-largest blockchain. At the moment, Tron has just passed the 12 million block height mark and it is growing at a healthy pace. This is probably due to the efforts of the community, which is constantly creating new applications and use cases for the technology.
