Tron was launched in 2017 and is a decentralized blockchain-based cryptocurrency that is open-source. Tron is a platform created, to enable content creators to get rewarded for sharing their own content. Tron’s technology grants access to users looking for entertainment-related content from around the world. The platform (Tron Protocol) also allows users to own, store and publish data. The distribution of data is also their decision to make.
Users who contribute to the ecological growth of the platform get rewarded with profits. Also, to promote fairness in the system, every contribution has equal time and value. Tron is a people-oriented system rather than money-oriented, hence they are sticking to their main goal which is providing services, especially entertainment related, through content viewing. It is designed such that everyone who participates gets benefits.
Tron has a token called Tronix (TRX). In 2017, TRX received a lot of attention, and it was as a result of a high price increase.
