Can crypto traders and enthusiasts suffer from the fatigue of one project being constantly in the news? Perhaps the Tron (TRX) foundation is putting in too much effort to have its platform known in the crypto-verse. The way technology and marketing works are that there needs to be a balance between the product being offered and the marketing strategy. Word of mouth works best. This is when the users and believers of a product or project do the advertising themselves.
In the case of TRON, perhaps the crypto-verse has seen what the team can offer and wants a new, fresh project to switch its attention to.
In comes Zilliqa (ZIL) with the second version of its Testnet that showcases the Scilla programming language and MainNet that is slated for release in Q3 of this year.
Zilliqa (ZIL) has one advantage over the Tron project. Not too many crypto enthusiasts have heard about this new refreshing project. What then will happen as soon as the Mainnet is launched, the concept of sharding in the Zilliqa platform will be confirmed 100%. The current Zilliqa Testnet can handle 2,828 transactions per second with just 6 shards. The entire Tron MainNet currently handles 2,000 tps (transactions per second). This is still high considering that Ethereum’s platform can only handle 25. But Zilliqa is clearly the future of scaling on the blockchain. As more shards are added onto the platform, the tps will grow according to and Zilliqa will outshine the rest.
Secondly, due to the high tps, the Zilliqa platform will be ideal for DApps that are centered on gaming, entertainment, digital advertising as well as finance. This means the Mainnet that proves to be more efficient between that of Tron and Zilliqa, will win over developers.
A third reason that Zilliqa will zoom past Tron in terms of technology, is the new programming language of Scilla that is the core of the ZIL project. The Scilla language has been designed with smart contract safety in mind. The researchers that developed Scilla, are at the top of their game in academia. This means they have studied the smart contract ecosystem and know all the loopholes and hurdles. It is like asking an aeronautical engineer to put together a Formula One Racecar. S/he knows the ins and outs of aerodynamics. The team at Zilliqa specialize in smart contracts 100%.
In a nutshell, the second quarter of 2018 will prove to be an exciting one as both Tron and Zilliqa will have functioning Mainnets. This means that both blockchain platforms will stand the test that is the developer and blockchain community. These two communities will decide on which platform to use for their projects. Zilliqa already has a head start by showcasing a higher throughput in transactions. Tron might hold the edge right now for having released its Mainnet earlier. But time will tell as to which platform will be victorious.
