The Tron blockchain team confirmed the launch of the SUN Network test network. This is reported at the company's Medium blog.
It is reported that the update includes several solutions aimed at scaling the network, including DAppChain. The latter is intended to ensure the scaling of smart contracts TRON, which should significantly reduce energy consumption and increase the security of dApps.
In just 7 months, nearly 500 quality DApps are running on the TRON network. TRON’s total account number reached 3,000,000. A total of 410 million secure transactions took place since the MainNet launch. Moving on, the energy-saving, highly secure and efficient Sun Network will contribute to a more active ecosystem of TRON.
In addition, DAppChain and crosschain communications should increase overall network bandwidth.
The launch of the SUN Network test network was announced in early April, and the official launch of the protocol is scheduled for August 10th.
