Mission Impossible — TRON Welcomes 1st Independence Day Anniversary
June 25, 2019 marks exactly a year since TRON realized full independence.
A year ago, TRON officially moved off Ethereum as an ERC-20 token, launched the TRON MainNet and generated the first genesis block with community consensus. Since then, TRON has realized full independence and become one of the most competitive mainstream public chains.
In just a year, the TRON Protocol has been updated twice per month averagely with a total of 22 updates. TRON boasts more Github code commits than Ethereum and EOS combined. There are 3.1 million addresses and 1.5 million transaction requests processed on the TRON MainNet per day, with a cumulative total of 460 million. Daily transaction volume peaked at 100 million USD, with a steady average of around 20 million USD. TRON exceeded 50,000 daily active users, with a cumulative total of 370 million contract calls.
In addition, TRON has secured partnerships with 110 exchanges and 33 wallets around the world. Many exchanges have enabled designated portals for TRX transactions. TRON has also acquired BitTorrent and all its products, as well as CoinPlay, the blockchain app store. All credit goes to the hard work of the TRON team, which has grown from dozens to about 400 and counting, and could grow to as many as 600 at the end of the year.
2019 is a major milestone for the integration of TRON and BitTorrent protocols. The TRX and BTT ecosystems will work in tandem to lay the foundation for a decentralized internet. TRON has worked so many wonders in just a year; moving on, TRON’s new vision is to become the founders, builders, and evangelists for a decentralized, autonomous ecosystem.
In 2020, we will be on the hunt for synergistic acquisitions to continuously expanding the TRON ecosystem, fostering a decentralized environment around the world; we will hold the second niTROn summit in Seoul, South Korea, which will be an even bigger success; To promote community activity and market stability, we will launch a one-year secondary market buy back program with no less than 20 million in funding, buying back TRX from secondary markets in batches. Buy back has already begun for TRX. TRON Foundation’s holdings will be unfrozen on January 1, 2020.
Justin Sun, founder of TRON, wrote in his open letter to the community on the 1st anniversary of TRON’s Independence Day: it is time to return to that original intention, to continue on the path to creating an internet owned by the people, governed by the people and for the people. We aim to make people around the world aware of the existence of such an internet, and to realize that they have a choice in which method they prefer.
From now on, every June 25 will be something to look forward to. Let’s wait and see what the next one has in store for us!
