Odyssey-v.1.0.6, the New Version of TRON Mainnet

Published

on

Tron

Tron is taking actions rapidly for the launch of its mainnet. As Justin Sun claimed, the TRX airdrop to the Ethereum (ETH) community had completed successfully a day ago. Even though there was a little slide after the completion of Tron’s Ethereum airdrop the price of TRX is gaining the upper hand at the moment. At the time of writing, according to coinmarketcap.com, the price of TRX shows approximately $0.085 USD (4.87%) and the market cap is nearly $5,595,045,954 USD (As of 8th May 2018). Meanwhile, Tron manages to hold onto the top ten position at coinmarketcap.com.

Talks about Tron launching its own mainnet had been going on for a while. It is expected that the transaction speed will significantly increase while the Ethereum blockchain struggles to confirm more than 25 transactions per second. The developers’ team of Tron did not just stop with the TRON Mainnet launch. They continue to add new features and upgrade the original version. Yesterday, on 7th May 2018, the Mainnet was upgraded to Odyssey-v.1.06 that introduces several features like vote freeze and vote defreeze. The bandwidth-based mode in transfer, a part of the Tron Mainnet continues to be there in the updated version. Reward redemption is another feature that has been added to the Odyssey-v.1.0.6 version also. The modules and mechanisms present in the TRON Mainnet version have been developed at large and the focus was on enhancing the overall performance. The update of Tron Mainnet shows that the developing team is working hard to keep a steady rate of progress.

Features of Odyssey-v.1.0.6

The BTC chain uses proof of work mechanism while ETH will most likely shift from the POW mechanism to POS in the future. Although EOS has not released its own mainnet officially, the platform uses DPOS mechanism and also features smart contract functions. According to the CTO of Tron, Lucien Chen, the design of the TRON Mainnet may be quite similar to that of EOS but the focus of the Tron team is on the core functions mainly. The features of the updated version of TRON Mainnet include improved security features and Function test module (TESTING).

The bandwidth-based mode will help in preventing DDoS attacks that generally occur during account transfer. Thus, the users will feel more secure during a transaction. Vote freeze, vote defreeze, and vote redemption have also been added to offer flexibility. The multi-thread parallel verification/signature module, on one hand, adds to the security and on the other hand, increases the number of transactions confirmed per second. Tron also focuses to optimize the peer to peer module such as to improve the broadcast efficiency. The developers also plan to optimize storage performance by bringing in an indexing mechanism that is memory-efficient. The focus is also on improving the interaction protocol and on fixing several known bugs.

“This update offers much smoother connections, higher TPS thanks to concurrency techniques, and a more wholesome, more decentralized voting system.”

  • Lucien Chen, CTO of Tron

DDoS has always been a threat to the public chains as blockchain is decentralized. The developers of Tron updated the mainnet to Odyssey-v.1.0.6 by introducing bandwidth-based mode to give the users a more secure experience.

BTCC Pool Announcement

BTCC Pool had announced on 2nd May 2018 that it will run for Tron super representative election. The strategic product of BTCC is considered to be stable, safe and transparent. Their servers are found throughout the world and has earned the support and trust of the miners due to low-latency and low-rejection features of the network. The objective of BTCC Pool is to see to the development of the blockchain ecosystem as well as to strengthen the security of the digital assets. At the beginning of this year, it has been seen that BTCC Pool had experienced some developments as it had strategic cooperation with HashCloud, the cloud computing power brand.

Within 3rd May, 30 large organizations including BTCC Pool took part in the super representative election of Tron Foundation. TRONSR RANKING used the public information provided by the election candidates to make a daily ranking of these candidates. This will help the community members to do an analysis before the vote. Tron Foundation had also announced on the same day that the token migration is slated for 21st June and 26th June will see the first election of 27 super representatives.

Recent adventures of Tron also include solving the issue of the bug of OOM of solidity node. Bittrex, Bitfinex, and Gate.io revealed that they support the upgrade to Odyssey-v.1.0.6, mainnet and token migration of Tron while Coin Tiger listed TRX on their platform. Therefore, with so many supporters and the latest ventures of the Tron network, TRX is surely one of the top cryptocurrencies in 2018 and beyond.

Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //

Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.

Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.

The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.

NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more. One of the ways to have a successful trading…

Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?

Published

on

2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for.  While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory.  When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion.  But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.

I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness.  Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion.  Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special.  Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.

Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology

It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.  Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different.  Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
