What is TRON (TRX)

TRON, or TRX, (TRX/USDT – Trade it here) is the mainnet native token of the TRON protocol issued by TRON DAO. It was first deployed on the Ethereum blockchain and later moved to the TRON native ecosystem, a protocol aimed at constructing a global and free entertainment ecosystem that allows digital content creators to have greater control over both content and interactions with consumers through the employment of digital assets.

Core Features of TRX

TRX is built around the entertainment industry and offers many unique features that caters to the specific needs of its largely content-creator user-base.

  • Data Release: All digital content on the ecosystem can be downloaded and distributed for free. 
  • Provision of Content: Digital assets go through the same process of delivery and distribution as typical digital entertainment content in order to stimulate the creation of environmental content. 
  • Personal ICO: Any user can distribute their digital assets in the form of ICOs.
  • Infrastructure: A variety of decentralized infrastructure is provided to all users (e.g. distributed exchange, offline games, prediction, and game system) in order to ensure a smooth user experience. 

TRX Tokenomics

TRX has a total supply of 100 billion, At its initial sale, 15.75 billion TRX was issued to private investors and 40 billion to ICO investors. TRON Foundation, the issuer of TRX, received 34 billion TRX. The Founder of TRON, Justin Sun, owns a separate company called Peiwo Huanle which owns an additional 10 billion TRX. 

TRON generates a block every 3 seconds and has a reward mechanism of 32 TRX per block, with nodes receiving 16 TRX per block. Statistically, the yearly inflation momentum of TRX is about 500 million.

TRX mainly serves as a utility token for fueling programs on the TRON system rather than as currency outside of the network.
