The all new, TRON MainNet is released today and thus, this marks the day the TRON network migrates from the Ethereum blockchain, onto its own native blockchain. With it, we will see TRX leave behind the Ethereum ERC-20 format and become a brand new, independent token of its own.
This is a highly anticipated event, with TRON showing a great deal of promise for the future. Justin Sun, the founder of TRON believes this is the first step towards TRON moving up into the top three cryptocurrencies. Existing on its own blockchain will indeed give TRON the capacity to expand, the success of this however can only be managed over time.
Presently, TRON are recruiting home-made ethical hackers to see if they can spot any bugs within the TRON MainNet. Between the 1st of June 2018 and the 24th of June 2018, TRON are offering to pay a bounty of between $100.00 and $100,000.00 to anyone who can spot issues on the MainNet. Those who are able to successfully locate vulnerabilities are asked to report their findings to [email protected], bear in mind though, this is on a first come first served basis. Therefore, if there’s a huge bug that TRON haven’t yet located, the first person to find it could be on to a $100,000.00 reward. Sounds a bit like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory doesn’t it?

What now for TRON?
At the time of writing, TRON is valued at $0.061, down 4.44%. So still, TRON is losing value, in a market that is moving upwards. Seems strange, but I’m sure there’s a reason for it. Either way, as the MainNet gets comfortable, we can expect to see TRON start to increase in value, it will no doubt just be a short matter of time before we see this happen.
Overall, the is the mark of a new era for TRON. If Justin Sun is correct, we could see the shape of the top end of the market change significantly over the next few months. The TRON Foundation will be waiting with baited breath.
