After launching the TRX virtual currency in June 2018, founder Justin Sun is preparing to complete the MainNet upgrade this month.
This will be launching along with the official version of its TRON Virtual Machine (TVM), and could be a boost to the cryptocurrency.
“On August 30th, TRON will complete its MainNet upgrade and launch the official version of TVM,” notes Sun. “We are ready for the launch already. But we are doing a lot of the tests, like the pressure test, volume test to make sure it works very well when we launch. Our MainNet was already launched on the 25th of June, but right now we are building the Virtual Machine on the MainNet. The Virtual Machine is [where developers] can develop very interesting Decentralized Applications, DApps, on the network.”
A beta version has also been on market for testing by the global community to uncover bugs.
Once in place, the platform will be be 80 times faster than the Ethereum network. If that’s the case, we could see more developers switch to TRON. That alone would boost the potential of the coin valuation moving forward.
TRON has been making big moves.
In early August 2018, global mobile platform, LINE Corporation, added TRX to its recently launched cryptocurrency exchange, BITBOX.
After their addition to more than 60 exchanges, the TRON team priority is to join even more. They especially want to join those with a focus on mobile experiences.
TRX also lists on major exchanges including Binance, Bittrex, Bitfinex, and BitMEX.
“At the moment we are listed in exchanges that operate all over the world. It’s very important to add more exchanges so that our tokens can available to more people,” says Justin Sun. “We have worked very hard to deliver many innovations. Investors are appreciating our efforts and that’s why we are having a great user adoption.”
