What is Tron (TRX)?
Tron is a decentralized entertainment-focused blockchain.
A lesser known fact about most smart contract systems is that they often require an operating system - akin to Windows or Mac OS - that runs smart contracts in a secure, decentralized and safe environment.
The blockchain is based on two unique protocols, the first is called Proof-of-Replication, which is the way that a storage miner proves to the Filecoin network that they have an entirely unique copy of a piece of data held for the network.
Tron uses the Tron Virtual Machine (TVM), which was designed from the ground up to be compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). As such, developers can build within the Tron ecosystem with programming languages that they are already familiar with, such as Solidity. They can also port dApps or other EVM-compatible blockchains directly to Tron in a seamless manner.
Directly connecting content creators
One of TRON’s primary aims is to eliminate centralized platforms - such as streaming services, and app or music platforms - to increase the redirect profit made by middlemen. This gives content creators more incentive to create better content, while potential making content less expensive to consume.
TRX is the native utility token for the Tron ecosystem. It is dual-purpose, firstly as a gas token for any network transactions and smart contract computations, and secondly in staking to secure the network. TRX is also the governance token of the blockchain, to vote on any protocol changes or changes to the network.
