is a blockchain platform launched as the foundation for a decentralized entertainment ecosystem. Created by controversial figure Justin Sun, Tron focuses on expanding the market of decentralized digital content applications by making it easier to create and deploy them. The Tron mainnet launched Jun 2018, and the Tronix TRX is the proprietary cryptocurrency token of the Tron blockchain.
Adoption of blockchain technology is limited in part because of the difficulty many developers face in learning to build from scratch on entirely new protocols. Tron is designed to ease this transition and therefore hasten the decentralization of existing platforms and creation of new dApps.
