TRON (TRX) Review

Inception

Tron, created by controversial Justin Sun, is a blockchain platform launched as the foundation for a decentralized entertainment ecosystem. The platform focuses on expanding the market of decentralized digital content applications by making it easier to create and deploy them. The Tron mainnet launched Jun 2018, and it since expanded to become a blockchain-based OS. TRX is the proprietary cryptocurrency token of the Tron blockchain.

Purpose

Tron was originally created with the intention to work in the same way that other content networks work. Content creators would produce content and consumers purchase it. Other applications can be built and leverage the same resources, and the value of TRX hinges in part on the execution of code within the Tron network.

TRON (TRX) Virtual Machine

The TVM is a lightweight, Turing complete virtual machine developed for TRON’s ecosystem. The TVM connects seamlessly with the existing development ecosystem to provide millions of global developers with a custom-built blockchain system that is efficient, convenient, stable, secure, and scalable.

TRON (TRX) Consensus

The TRON consensus mechanism uses an innovative Delegated Proof of Stake system in which 27 Super Representatives (SRs) produce blocks for the network. Every 6 hours, TRX account holders who freeze their accounts can vote for a selection of SR candidates, with the top 27 candidates deemed the SRs. Voters may choose SRs based on criteria such as projects sponsored by SRs to increase TRX adoption, and rewards distributed to voters.

 

The TRON protocol network generates one block every three seconds, with each block awarding 32 TRX to Super Representatives. A total of 336,384,000 TRX will be awarded annually to the 27 SRs. Each time an SR finishes block production, rewards are sent to a sub-account in the super-ledger. SRs can check, but not directly make use of these TRX tokens.

TRON (TRX) Storage

TRON designed a unique distributed storage protocol consisting of Block Storage and State Storage. The notion of a graph database was introduced into the design of the storage layer to better meet the need for diversified data storage in the real world.

State Storage

TRON designed a unique distributed storage protocol consisting of Block Storage and State Storage. The notion of a graph database was introduced into the design of the storage layer to better meet the need for diversified data storage in the real world.

Blockchain Storage

TRON blockchain storage chooses to use LevelDB, which is developed by Google and proven successful with many companies and projects. It has high performance and supports arbitrary byte arrays as both keys and values, singular get, put and delete, batched put and delete bi-directional iterators, and simple compression using the very fast Snappy algorithm.

TRON (TRX) Core

There are several modules in the core layer, including smart contracts, account management, and consensus. A stack-based virtual machine is implemented on TRON and an optimized instruction set is used. In order to better support DApp developers, Solidity was chosen as the smart contract 4 language, followed by future support of other advanced languages. In addition, TRON's consensus mechanism is based on the Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) and many innovations were made in order to meet its unique requirements.

TRON (TRX) Technical Overview

TRON adopts a 3-layer architecture divided into Storage Layer, Core Layer, and Application Layer. The TRON protocol adheres to Google Protobuf, which intrinsically supports multi-language extension.

TRON (TRX) Hardware Wallets

For hardware wallets, we have TRX support from both Ledger Nano S and Trezor

Ledger

As for using the Nano Ledger S, the first step towards setting up your device is unboxing it and checking if you have received all the accessories coming with it. Once you have unboxed your device, you need to configure it and initialize it before being able to use it. The process is quite simple and will hardly take about 20-30 minutes post which you will be set to use your Ledger Nano S device.

Setup Guide: This video does a pretty good job of explaining how the setup works.

Trezor

As for Trezor, installing is really simple. To properly install it users should attach the unit to the computer. After that continue with installing the bridge which allows the Trezor to join with the computer. The first step is to connect the Trezor to the device’s USB slot with the cable given in the box.  After that, go to myTrezor.com and proceed with installing the browser extension. Trezor can also be used on Android or an iPhone, or on a Windows or Mac computer. Now, initiate the extension and myTrezor will direct you to pick a PIN. After this, you will notice nine buttons but the numbers are hidden. After this, users should check the Trezor’s screen to recognize which numbers are in which place because it switches every time. Now set the PIN. Shortly after, Trezor should present a 24-word wallet “seed”. In short, one word at a time. Note down this seed and save it carefully. If your Trezor device malfunctions or is lost, you can utilize the seed to reconstruct the complete wallet.

Setup Guide: This video explains how to set up your trezor quite well. 

TRON (TRX) Desktop/Mobile Wallets

For desktop and mobile wallets, we have quite a few great options

Tron Android Wallet

For mobile wallets, you can use Tron’s official Android wallet:

TRON Foundation officially promotes this wallet and advises people to use it because of its multifunctional feature. It has a viable user interface along with a Tron cold wallet set up, which makes it easy to store and secure TRX coins, which is the main reason why it is a part of the Tron wallets list. It is a mobile wallet, as the name suggests, which is encrypted by a password and you can recover the password with a 24-word recovery seed, which makes it even more secure.

 This wallet gains popularity as it is the most recommended wallet for the android users and it has decent security features. You can also download TRON paper wallet from GitHub.

Tron IOS

Tron IOS wallet

This is exclusively for the iPhone users as the name suggests, and is supported by the TRON Foundation through TRON Loan. This is an open source TRON Crypto wallet which is capable of securing private key locally. It provides with one of the simplest user interface, which is quick and easy to navigate.

Exodus

And finally we have Exodus, which supports numerous other cryptocurrencies along with ETH and is pretty straightforward and easy to use. Just download the app from the official site(exodus.io) and get straight into creating your wallet.  Exodus stores your Private Keys on the machine you choose and not on any server, providing you with a relative peace of mind when it comes to the security of your coins.

A great alternative to Exodus is Atomic Wallet, which we mentioned earlier.

TRON (TRX) Online Wallets

Tron Browser Extension

The only trustworthy version of a web wallet is Tron’s own Chrome browser extension.

It's quick to download and install, and is designed to offer convenience for anyone looking to send, receive and store TRX. The Tron Wallet Chrome extension is fairly simple to use, and also offers an extra layer of security by ensuring that all transactions get signed offline, meaning your private keys are never sent over the internet.

TRON (TRX) Buying TRX

The best, most secure and trustworthy choices for buying TRX with a credit or debit card are either Changelly or Atomic Wallet, which also doubles for a great TRX wallet.

Changelly

Changelly is one of the most reputable brokers out there.

 The platform is non-custodial, meaning that when you purchase cryptocurrencies at Changelly, what you’re really doing is purchasing cryptocurrencies from another cryptocurrency exchange. Accordingly, Changelly provides you with a window into other cryptocurrency exchanges (Binance, Bittrex, Poloniex and HitBTC), all so that you can find the best price for you.

As for fees, Changelly only charges a 0.5% exchange fee for each trade.

Atomic Wallet

If you’re looking to hit two birds with one stone, Atomic Wallet might be your best bet. The desktop wallet also doubles as an exchange which happens to accept credit and debit card for purchases. It should be noted that it charges %2 fees for every transaction or a minimum of $10 USD.
