Tron is a decentralized blockchain platform that allows for the creation of dapps, with a focus on entertainment and content sharing. The platform was launched in 2017 by the Forbes recognised 30 under 30 entrepreneur, Justin Sun. Following a successful ICO in 2017, the project managed to raise $70 million and has a total supply of 100,850,743,812 TRX.
Tron, while a strong contender in the dapp creation space, is also focused on connecting content creators with their audience. The platform aims to provide a space in which financial rewards can be attained by content creators and where content creators can create their own tokens, as well as decentralizing the gaming industry as a whole.
Tron’s biggest acquisition to date is the largest peer to peer file sharing network, BitTorrent, which the platform acquired in July 2018. That same year, the platform switched from an ERC-20 Ethereum-based protocol to an independent network, in the process establishing itself as a rival to the 2nd biggest cryptocurrency network.
