The blockchain technology was created, in the beginning, to support Bitcoin. That was its purpose and reason for being. But that was just the first version, no second cryptocurrency (like Tron or any other) except Bitcoin was created at that time. Currently, we have third generation blockchains and, while most of them still support a digital asset of some kind, the idea is now different.
The blockchain 3.0, which is the version in use by most new projects, is a lot more than means to create a token. It’s a full-fledged OS that can also support all kinds of smart-contracts and decentralized apps. This is the idea espoused by projects such as EOS, Tron, Cardano, and many others.
That’s why Tron’s foundation announcement is so important. Just today they finally released their development kit for the Tron platform. It’s comprised of TronBox, TronGrid, TronStudio, and TronWeb. This is a set of developing tools designed to allow programmers to create content, decentralized applications, smart contracts and all kinds of other cool things using Tron blockchain.
Is Tron focused just on cryptocurrency?
Remember something: there is a cryptocurrency associated with Tron (which is called Tronix or TRX) but the project’s aim is not to develop the coin alone. Tron’s purpose is to use blockchain technology to decentralize the web in such a way that content creators will not need central authorities or corporations anymore to monetize the fruits of their labor. That’s what Tron is about and that’s what the new developer’s kit is supposed to achieve.
Tron is barely a year old, but through a combination of great leadership, ambition, and state-of-the-art blockchain technology, it’s become one of the most relevant and interesting projects in the cryptosphere. In the last few months, Tron managed to leave the Ethereum network behind to create its own Main Net. It’s also released its native virtual machine and announced several strategic partnerships.
New developer suite available: TronBox, TronGrid, TronStudio & TronWeb. Developers are now fully equipped to build the best Dapps on #TRON! We are also excited to announce that we officially enter the Smart Contract Era following #TVM main net new version https://t.co/fJXdb35JTy

Today’s announcement is just another step in the right direction for Tron to deliver on its promises. This is great news for developers because Tron’s technology can be developed using Java, which is among the most popular programming languages among computer engineers, as opposed to some other languages that are native and proprietary in some other platforms.
It means that if you want to develop new apps in, say, Ethereum, you need to learn a new programming language that no university teaches (and that is also not very well documented in the technical literature). The preference for Java opens Tron’s doors to any competent computer programmer in the world.
The new developing kit is an all-in-one tool. It’s free, it’s open source. It marks the start of smart contracts that can run on Tron’s Main Net. They will be 200 times faster than Ethereum, a hundred time cheaper than EOS. It brings the best of all worlds together in a way that very few other blockchain projects can (or have even tried).
TronWeb, as the name suggests, aims to connect web developers to the Tron network and to trade in TRX and other tokens. TronBox is a framework to develop and deploy smart contracts. TronStudio is an IDE that takes full advantage of Tron’s Virtual Machine and brings together the best features in all the other of the kit’s apps. TronGrid is inspired by Ethereum’s Infura and it allows the development and release of decentralized apps and smart contracts.
The main thing to keep in mind about today’s news is that Tron keeps delivering on its promises, always on time, and always up to (and beyond) the expected specifications. Congratulations to Justin Sun, the Tron Foundation and the community.

Property Loans for Foreigners in Singapore That You Must Know About
Intending to invest in a residential or commercial property in Singapore?
When it comes to foreigners applying for a loan in Singapore, things can be pretty hard regardless of the reason whether you need the property for personal or business purposes.
In Singapore, buying a property is challenging, whether you are a foreigner or a native, and sometimes applying for a loan is the only way for you to afford it.
HOW MUCH CAN YOU BORROW FOR A PROPERTY LOAN IN SINGAPORE?
As for the Foreigner Loans, in Singapore, there is an exact amount of money you can borrow to finance the purchase of a property.
In this sense, Singapore has the Loan to Value Ratio (LTV).
The LTV ratio is what determines the exact amount of money you can borrow for a property loan, which changes depending on where you try to obtain the loan:
- If you are applying for a bank loan, you can borrow a maximum of 75% of the value of the property you want to purchase. That means if you are looking for a property that costs $500.000, the maximum amount of money a bank lender can give you like a loan in Singapore is going to be $375.000.
- When you are applying for a loan with a Housing…
