Tron’s Market Transactions and Work Completed
It seems Tron has had a good time ever since its MainNet launch back in June.
The project has been listed on more than 100 exchanges which offer “trading pairs between TRON and other tokens as well as fiat currencies.”
With 159 trading pairs, Tron has surpassed Stellar with 157 trading pairs.
Tron was launched in 2017 compared to Stellar which was established more than three years earlier.
Tron’s native currency, TRX, is now available on the SWFT Blockchain trading platform.
The trading platform achieves secure, fast, and low-cost transactions through the use of blockchain technology, machine learning, and big data technology.
TRX Market, a new decentralized exchange (DEX) developed on Tron’s ecosystem was launched during the week.
The exchange focuses on key features such as “safety, reliability, openness, transparency, speed, and convenience.”
The transactions are carried out in smart contracts while the data is recorded on the blockchain. This renders the data immutable, transparent, and available in real-time.
The decentralized exchange has a high level of security as it does not touch the users’ digital assets. Moreover, users can trade directly using the wallet.
The technical development team “tested the Token name duplication” and is yet to optimize data storage and dynamic changes of resource ceiling.
The Tron Accelerator program launched recently is growing in popularity.
The contest website has recorded more than 12,000 views while more than 160 individuals and teams have signed up for the program.
A Chinese moderator is the latest member to join Discord.
Tron released White Paper 2.0, and the release of the Chinese version of the developer documentation is slotted for next week.
Tron held its first offline meetup in Africa in Nairobi, Kenya. This marks a significant step as Tron makes inroads in the African markets.
On the same basis, the first South American Tron meetup was held in Florianopolis, Brazil – the largest country in South America.
The meetup was attended by Tron enthusiasts and developers who gained more insights about Tron, Project ATLAS, Tron Accelerator, and more.
The winners of the first “TikTok” contest were announced during the week. The winners are required to contact Tron to claim their prizes.
The growth of the Tron ecosystem is evidenced by the increasing number of Sun’s followers on Facebook.
Sun made a number of proposals such as raising “the energy from 50 billion to 250 billion.” This has an advantage of significantly reducing the cost of development.
