  1. TRONZ Smart Contract Privacy Protocol Support ZK-SNARKS. Allowing the smart contract to be more private to keep privacy top of mind for your transactions and more.

What is ZK-SNARKS?

Zk-SNARKS stands for a zero-knowledge succinct non-interactive argument of knowledge. Basically, it is a privacy feature that allows no interaction between the prover and verifier.

2. New TPOS Dual — Layer Consensus Mechanism combining the advantages of DPoS and PBFT thus reducing block confirmation times from 57 seconds to 3 seconds. This will increase transactions per second meaning you can send transactions faster to decrease waiting for confirmations.

What is DPOS?

Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) is a consensus algorithm developed to secure a blockchain by ensuring representation of transactions within it. DPoS is designed as an implementation of technology-based democracy, using the voting and election process to protect the blockchain from centralization and malicious usage.

What is PBFT?

Practical Byzantine Fault Tolerance is an excellent consensus algorithm for enterprise consortiums where members are partially trusted.

3.New TICP Cross-Chain Protocol that will usher in a cross-chain era for the Tron ecosystem.

What is a cross-chain?

A cross-chain is the interoperability between two relatively independent blockchains. In other words, it allows blockchains to speak to one another because they’re built in a standardized way.

4.Customized blockchain-based apps for institutions and enterprises. Developers will now be able to set up a customized application chain to solve problems in a variety of business cases.

That's the quick fast facts about the new TRON 4.0 upgrade happening on 7/7/2020.
