At the time of writing, Tron had a total number of 301,765 accounts on the network and EOS had a total number of 299,820 accounts on the network. This means that Tron surpassed EOS with over 1,945 accounts.
In addition, Justin Sun had anticipated Tron to surpass EOS in terms of the account number by the end of Q3 i.e., by the end of September, during the launch of the Tron Virtual Machine. This comes in the limelight on the 4th anniversary of Tron [TRX].
According to Justin, Tron is going to surpass Ethereum with their Virtual Machine. The TVM is completely compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine. During the TVM launch, Justin updated the community on the progress of Tron in comparison to Ethereum.
After the MainNet launch, the number of accounts on the Tron network is 11 times that of Ethereum. The single day transaction peak is 46 times that of Ethereum’s single day transactions in the past 2 months.
Along with the Tron Virtual Machine Launch, Project Atlas has also stepped into the industry with the aim to ‘Decentralize the Internet’. The project is the collaboration of BitTorrent, the biggest Torrent platform in the world, and Tron. They will connect the platforms with the use of BitTorrent protocol extensions.
The official web portal for BitTorrent was launched during the launch of the Virtual Machine. Project Atlas is working towards increasing the lifespan of the Torrent swarms and increase the speed. In addition, the custom token and an inclined token will solve the existing limitation of the platform.
