After months of testing and waiting, Tron successfully launched its Main Net, Odyssey 2.0, on 31st May, kickstarting the process of switching from being an Ethereum token to its own Main Net. A big step for Tron, Odyssey 2.0 has already accumulated over 2,000 revisions, released 15 software iterations, merged over 500 forks, and added more than 100 new features. Users can download Odyssey 2.0 from Tron Github page.

25th June also referred to as “Independence Day” has been scheduled to be the date where the network is going to migrate from Ethereum’s platform fully. Regarding logical challenges, the shift from Ethereum’s ERC-20 to Tron’s native new token will require holders to convert their existing TRX altcoins into the new form and ensure their tokens is in a supported wallet and exchange. Holders will also have to make sure the third party can handle the transition.

Some wallets and exchanges are in support of the Main Net shift. All ERC-20 altcoins should be in any of these platforms before the 25 of this month: Huboi Pro, UpBit, ZebPay, Bibox, RightBTC, Binance, Gate.io, BITKOP, Okex, Bittrex, Coinnest, DragonEx, Bit-Z, Bitfinex, Bithumb, Liqui, and Coinrail.

If any holder misses the final migration day, they will have to wait for another Main Net switch date that will be announced at a later date to switch to the new form of TRX manually.

Tron’s Independence Day will also be the day the election results for Tron’s Super Representatives are communicated. The 25 individuals, Super Representatives, will be the general overseers of the network acting as primary nodes of the platform. The election is an open community vote and is currently ongoing.

What Does Tron’s Odyssey 2.0 Provide?

  • A friendlier environment for developers
  • Improved general stability
  • Instant, asynchronous, and responsive functions
  • Enhancement of dozens of central parameters with BEB, binary regression algorithm
  • Improved scalability and network performance with hundreds of times faster Transactions per Second than Ethereum’s

Tron’s new platform has gone through meticulous testing, and CEO Justin Sun assures his holders that the upgrade is secure and reliable to meet their everyday demands. Posting on his Twitter page, Sun disclosed a huge bounty reward for anyone in the developer’s community or the general public who will find any bugs or erroneous lines in the new Main Net.

With the final migration set to take place on 25th this month, Tron is not leaving anything to chance and is investing large sums of money in ensuring Odyssey 2.0 is safe and secure. EOS offered a bug bounty of $10,000 while Tron is investing $100,000 for any critical bug that can jeopardize the migration.

Anyone who has followed online gambling since the beginning can tell you that things don’t stay the same for long. One of the reasons for this is that technology improves at such a ridiculously fast pace, and innovators in this industry are able to match up with those technological changes pretty quickly.

An innovation in technology that the Internet gambling industry has really learned from is cryptocurrency, with bitcoin in particular leading the way. We’ve seen it emerge as an alternative banking method, but it’s going to change the industry as a whole in ways that people can’t quite understand yet.

A Post-Legality Era

Something that has eluded online gambling since its inception is the idea of a global governing body. As it stands right now, each individual country (and smaller units of jurisdiction) have their own governing bodies that oversee in the industry. A lot of these laws are tied to banking laws, and that’s where the legality of playing in bitcoin casinos becomes such an interesting topic.

In the present, we’re seeing country-based regulatory bodies from places like Malta, Gibraltar and the United Kingdom start to work together and recognize each other’s licenses more and more. That’s taking serious steps towards having a global governing entity, and once that happens, the role of bitcoin is going to be even larger than it is now because it’ll…
