TRON Foundation Launches Sun Network V1.0 Mainnet
One of the most significant public blockchain solutions, TRON, has officially announced the launch of their latest platform – the Sun Network sidechain. Despite the crypto havoc in the past couple of days, TRON’s CEO Justin Sun announced the launch on Twitter, clarifying that TRONSCAN and TronLink will support the new sidechain. Sun also announced that his team developed a Tron-based JS-SDK, dubbed SunWeb.
TRON, however, made it clear that all TRX tokens from the MainNet would not be automatically transferred to the Sun Network. Users have to use TRONSCAN or TronLink to transfer assets between the chains.
TRON released the full code behind the sidechain on GitHub on 11th August 2019 to force community feedback. The open-source nature of the Sun Network will allow developers to deploy their own versions of the sidechain. Sun Network utilizes all of TRON’s mainnet features, and it’s customizable to answer all specific requirements.
The sidechain would help DApp developers to operate on the Sun Network with higher security and lower power consumption. With the help of SunWeb, TRONSCAN, and TronLink, the deployment time is reduced and integration is being simplified.
In the official TRON blog post, the company explains why Sun Network is so important.
“The network will accelerate the creation and will contribute further to the development of the entire DApp ecosystem, which will ensure community autonomy. With a strong community effort, TRON’s main blockchain will achieve better scalability, cost-effectiveness, and prosperity”, the blog post states.
Currently, TRON’s MainNet supports 584 DApss. TRON’s CEO stated his optimism about the future of the applications, explaining that since the launch of Tron’s TVM in October, over 500 DApps have utilized the network. TRON’s Virtual Machine (TVM) enables DApp issuers to deploy large-scale applications and create custom smart contracts.Blockchain TRON Cryptocurrency Blockchain Development TRON Foundation cryptocurrency news Blockchain News
