Despite all the issues of the Tron (TRX) token value taking a nosedive during the MainNet launch on the 31st of May, the project is on course to achieve its goal of being the platform of choice for Decentralized Applications in the future. The TRON MainNet is now available for download on GitHub for developers from around the globe to test it and also to see if they can find any security vulnerabilities before the declared Independence day of 25th June.
This day of the 25th, is when the first Genesis Block will be launched on the TRON platform that aims at improving on the challenges faced by users in the Ethereum platform.
So how will The Tron MainNet challenge Ethereum?
Firstly, and from the get go, the number of commits for the TRON Odyssey 2.0 is admirable for such a young project. TRON has already accumulated 2,153 commits on Github. The MainNet has also accomplished to merge 547 forks, released 15 software iterations and added 103 new features. The team has also carried out 384 unit tests to ensure code security, done 461 functional tests, reviewed the code numerous and determined it is ready.
Secondly, TRON introduces the first democratic governance system that ensures decentralization. This means that through Super Representation, every user will have a say of what is going on in the platform and project. TRON solves community governance by letting users leverage their tokens to vote and have a choice in the community. No single developer or foundation will have full control in the traditional autocratic system of ETH.
John McAfee even lauded the TRON project because of its planned democratic system. Mr. McAfee had this to say:
If you are in the Tron community, vote for
@team_tronics. Why? Because they are one of the few teams attempting to give back to the crypto community. Also, there are a couple of beautiful women on the team who promised to send me their phone numbers. So vote for them or else!!
Thirdly, TRON MainNet will be able to support a new generation of Decentralized Apps that were not supported on Ethereum. These DApps function on the decentralized governance earlier mentioned. Also, the high gas fees experienced in the Ethereum platform will be a thing of the past. The transactional coin burn everyone has been asking about, is only 0.1 TRX when creating a new account on the platform and transfers cost 0.001 TRX. This is amazingly cheap while compared to the ETH platform.
Fourthly, and not necessarily the last reason why TRON MainNet will be gunning for Ethereum, is the current period of vigorous MainNet testing that has been stimulated by a bug bounty program. This means that for the next 24 days up until June 24th, every developer out there stands a chance of cashing in on up to $100,000 for discovering bugs on the platform. Such an incentive will guarantee that the MainNet is 100% secure before being launched fully on the 25th of June.
In conclusion, the TRON Project is one to keep a keen eye on in the following days and months. The project also stands a chance at eventually replacing Ethereum as the choice platform for the developers of DApps.
