As it was announced on January 24 in the official account of Justin Sun, the founder of TRON, its first beta version   Exodus will be released on March 31 of 2018 with UTXO-based trading models as one of the core functions.

  • UTXO-based trading models: history of transactions can be tracked through the public ledger, and UTXO boots concurrent processing capability and enhances network performance
  • PoS-based TBFT consensus mechanism: it adjusts the account takers of a transaction according to the speed and delay of the block allowing to reach over 1 thousand transactions per second 
  • Ultra-low fee transfer
  • TRON virtual machine (TVM): it should provide secure execution environment for smart contract byte-code
  • Smart contracts written in programming languages: they should be compiled into TVM byte-code with TRON compiler for high execution performance
  • Application BlockChain Interface: consensus engine and Blockchain state machine loosely-coupled architecture
  • Distributed network management and monitoring utilities: ability to visualize TRON operations and performance to easily track the status and potential risks

The launch of main net this time will be a vital node in TRON’s development history. But this won’t be an end. We believe in the three major values, which are also the foundation for Internet 4.0: trustworthy decentralized applications, block chain enabled smart contracts and digital values that everyone can access and distribute.

Most Crypto-Optimists Live in Norway, Bitflyer Study

According to bitFlyer's poll on future of crypto, europeans believes cryptocurrency has future
24 April 2019   83

Most Europeans believe that in ten years digital currencies will continue to be in demand, but they do not have the same confidence about Bitcoin. This is reported by Cryptonews, citing a study of the bitFlyer.

10 thousand people from ten European countries took part in the online survey. Of these, 63% believe in a “bright future” cryptocurrency. However, not all Europeans are confident in the future of Bitcoin - only 55% believe that the first cryptocurrency will exist in ten years.

It is also noteworthy that, despite the fall in prices of most cryptocurrencies that lasted for almost a year, the majority of respondents positively assessed the prospects for the development of the market.

Most of the “crypto-optimists” turned out to live in Norway - 73% of the inhabitants of this Scandinavian country are convinced that a decade later, digital currencies will still be in society. This is followed by Italy (68%), the Netherlands and Poland close the top four (67% each).

But the exact form of cryptocurrency will exist, almost no one knows. Only 8% believe that they will become money, and 7% - a tool for investment or a means of preserving value.

The fact that Bitcoin is not generating as much support as other cryptocurrencies is in part a symptom of the market’s volatility, but is also a direct impact of the constant media attention that is associated to its volatility.

He also added that the study demonstrated how much remains to be done to increase public awareness of the benefits and opportunities of cryptocurrencies.
