After months of waiting, TRON Virtual Machine (TVM) is finally live. Recent announcements by TRON’s founder, Justin Sun, informed TRX enthusiasts of the new development via Twitter and urged them to enjoy TRON’s groundbreaking new product.

Despite the fact that TVM came a bit later than it was supposed to due to issues with a particular block, Sun’s team managed to resolve everything quickly. As a result, the platform launched TVM, giving the team, as well as TRX community, a reason to celebrate.

Thanks to Tron VM, an entirely new Smart Contracts Era arrived at TRON, which will now be 200 times faster than Ethereum, as well as 100 times cheaper than EOS. Additionally, due to the fact that smart contracts are crucial for the creation of a decentralized web, this marks another step that TRON has made on its way to achieve its goals.

What changes will TRON VM bring?

The importance of TVM lies in the fact that it represents a test environment for dApp creation. With it, developers can easily test and modify their smart contracts and dApps and discover any flaw before they deploy them to TRON MainNet.

TRON VM brings four crucial features — Compatibility with Ethereum, an energy consumption model that is entirely user-friendly, unique virtual memory, and distinct resources manager.

At the moment, developers can create dApps and smart contracts by using Solidity. However, thanks to new Ethereum compatibility, TVM can easily become compatible with other blockchains as well, at some point in its future. As expected, TRON VM is to be governed by TRON’s Super Representatives, which were previously elected by TRX holders through a voting process.

Due to its new virtual memory mechanism, TVM will also reduce the usage of physical memory. This will also reduce the cost of dApps. As for the resource management model, it will enable the sharing of CPU usage and memory alike. As such, it will additionally improve the efficiency of the entire system.

TVM is a project that has been announced a long time ago, and it represents one of TRON’s first truly big steps toward its way to decentralize the web. With a goal that huge ahead of it, it is not surprising that TRX enthusiasts were thrilled that TVM is finally live. The move also reflected on TRON’s price, which is something that only a handful of this coin’s previous achievements managed to do.

Granted, most of TRON’s advances happened during extremely bearish periods of 2018, when the market simply refused to allow TRX price to grow. Even so, it is encouraging to see TRX price surge by more than 5% only two days after a major price crash that has brought down even the largest altcoins. At the time of writing, TRON’s price is at $0.023298, with 5.60% increase in the last 24 hours. Whether this is a short-term surge or a beginning of a new bull run remains to be seen. For now, however, TRON seems to be doing pretty well.

With the crypto markets in turmoil, especially after news about a potential hack at Cryptopia, traders and investors need to turn their attention away from day trading.  Instead, crypto traders really need to think long-term and identify projects that are sure to win in the long-term.  In particular, one crypto company is making major headlines after winning an all-important technology battle against the mighty Facebook.  That company is Zulu Republic (ZTX).

While even the best years cannot help sustain bad cryptocurrency projects, the good and strong ones can do much even when years are extremely bad for crypto. TRON (TRX) has proven this in 2018 by being one of the most active and most popular projects around.

Throughout the previous year, TRON has been making great progress, setting foundations for growth and expansion, which may eventually lead to its dominance over the crypto market. Now, 2019 has barely even started, and it already promises to be a year filled with potential and all kinds of different possibilities for this coin.

TRON in 2018

2018 has started with a market crash that has brought a lot of coins down from their all-time highs. This is true for TRON as well, and it did not manage to avoid being affected by bear market, no matter what its developers did. However, instead of trying to fight the market and its trends, they focused on expansion, development, partnerships, and future projects.

The first big step for TRON was the launch of its MainNet, with dozens of listings and partnerships being announced right before the final launch. After that, the coin transferred its tokens from Ethereum’s network, it had a Super Representative election, and it even managed to purchase BitTorrent, which was a part of a secret project back then.

The project was quickly…
