Tron has a total supply of a little above 100 billion, of which only about 71 billion is in circulation, giving it a market cap of about $7 billion.
Tron was established as a means of exchange between a community of content creators but removed the need for middlemen. Customers pay content creators directly using TRX on their platform.
TRX is said to have a lot of talented engineers on their team. Justin Sun pulled some of them out of Ripple Labs. Ethereum can handle a maximum of 20 transactions per second. Bitcoin can handle 6. Tron claims to have the capacity to handle 2000 transactions in one second.
The Tron network uses a delegated proof-of-stake to avoid double spending of the coin. It is similar to the proof-of-stake in Bitcoin, but Tron users vote for super representatives who then help validate transactions.
About 70% of the total supply is in circulation, making the TRX network worth about $7 billion. The primary targets of TRX are online creators.
