Tron [TRX], the 12th ranked cryptocurrency, has always had a foothold in the DApps department and that prowess had also led to several upgrades and additions within the company. One of the most awaited add-ons from the company was the Sun Network, touted to be the game-changer in the propagation of a decentralized internet.
On June 11, it was announced that the Sun Network testnet was officially launched, with Chief Executive Officer Justin Sun tweeting,
“#SunNetwork Testnet Has Officially Launched. The overall solution of #SunNetwork (http://tron.network/sunnetwork ) will provide unlimited scaling capacity for #TRON MainNet, bringing in more possibilities to development of TRON’s #DApps and entire ecosystem. #TRX”
The organization has claimed that the solution also aims to make a positive impact on the entire blockchain industry. The Sun network works with the framework of more community involvement, as well as improving transactions made per second and smart contract execution efficiently on Tron. Justin Sun added,
“As time goes on, lots of projects have made great progresses. We launched the TVM in October 2018. In just 7 months, nearly 500 quality DApps are running on the TRON network. TRON’s total account number reached 3,000,000. A total of 410 million secure transactions took place since the MainNet launch. Moving on, the energy-saving, highly secure and efficient Sun Network will contribute to a more active ecosystem of TRON.”
A feature that was well received by the community involved pledging assets, wherein users could use the ‘deposit’ command in the new sun-client to pledge mainchain assets on the side chain. The assets include TRX, TRC10, TRC721 smart contract assets and TRC20 smart contract assets.
Sun had previously spoken about the mainnet launch of the Sun Network, where he stated that the mainnet would not require an upgrade following the launch. He further assured users that DApps won’t be affected, if they don’t switch to the DAppChain.
The launch of the test net generated many positive comments from Tronics who opined in unison that TRX was about to ‘moon’ soon.
