TRON is a blockchain-based decentralized entertainment content sharing platform eventually leveraging blockchain and peer-to-peer (p2p) network technology. The Tronix (transaction code: TRX) is circulated in the system as the official currency of TRON.
TRON hopes to establish a decentralized platform, characterized by free data where users can freely exchange text and images on the platform. Users can also use the infrastructure on the platform to create their own cryptocurrency. For TRON, it is expected that the entire system will take 8-10 years to complete and involve six steps.
There has been some controversy surrounding TRON, earlier this year it was accused of plagiarizing its white paper. Nevertheless, it’s made news in positive ways too, such as their announcement of acquiring BitTorrent.
