TRON is a decentralized blockchain-based operating system for digital content creators. It supports smart contracts and dApps, and uses a transaction model similar to Bitcoin. TRON's primary purpose is to create a decentralized Internet and serve as an alternative to Ethereum for developers to create dApps. Originally, TRX tokens were ERC-20-based tokens deployed on Ethereum, but a year later, they were moved to their own network. The cryptocurrency platform uses a transaction model similar to Bitcoin (BTC), specifically UTXO. Anyone can create and share content on the TRON network without worrying about transaction fees.
