The new block of TRON (TRX) has just reached a significant milestone, and all 27 "Super Representatives" voted for the new network. Representatives are elected by the TRON (TRX) community and are appointed with important tasks to verify transactions and create new blocks.

TRON officially decided to abandon its original tokens based on Ethereum and launched its own wiring network at the end of last month. Since then, 53 crypto exchange exchanges have changed the old TRX ERC-20 tokens to those that function on the new block.

TRON is also preparing for the official release of its virtual machine and Mainnet update, both procedures were planned for the end of this month, which will give developers the tools needed to create decentralized applications.

Brave Browser Start Paying BAT For Ads Viewing

Users of the new Brave browser desktop version will finally be able to participate in the Brave Ads program.

Brave is developed by the creator of the JavaScript programming language and ex-Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich and is positioned as something more than a “ad-blocking browser”. The implementation of this idea is based on Brave Ads.

Users who decide to take part in the program will be able to receive up to 70% of the profits generated by the advertisements shown to them, TechCrunch reports with reference to the company's statement. Awards will be paid in the form of own tokens of the Basic Attention Tokens project (BAT), which users, in turn, will be able to share with the creators of the content they like on the network.

By default, donations to BAT will be transferred to owners of sites that a user visits most often, however, developers plan to realize the possibility of exchanging tokens for awards, such as vouchers for restaurant visits or hotel accommodations. Also, earned advertising tokens can be exchanged for other cryptocurrencies and Fiat through exchanges. If desired, users can continue to use Brave without receiving a BAT.

A lot of users don’t want to cash out [when they receive BAT]. It’s not a huge amount of value for most people, so they may prefer to just use it to give back. And that’s the real idea: A browser with the user steering it is replacing the ad tech complex.

BAT can only be used to reward publishers. Soon with their help, users will be able to buy additional content and, possibly, some products. The ability to withdraw tokens will be realized after the introduction of the user identification system.
