About TRON DAO
TRON DAO is a community-run DAO dedicated to accelerating the decentralization of the internet via blockchain technology and dApps.
Founded in September 2017 by HE Justin Sun, the TRON network has continued to deliver impressive performance since its MainNet launch in May 2018. July 2018 also marked the ecosystem integration of BitTorrent, a pioneer in decentralized Web3 services with over 100 million monthly active users. The TRON network has gained an incredibly good hold in recent years. As of June 2023, it has over 164.8 million total user accounts on the blockchain, more than 5.78 billion total transactions and over $12.3 billion in total value locked (TVL), as reported on TRONSCAN.
In addition, TRON hosts the largest circulating supply of USD Tether (USDT) stablecoins worldwide, surpassing USDT on Ethereum since April 2021. The TRON network completed full decentralization in December 2021 and is now a community-governed DAO. As recently as October 2022, TRON was designated as the national blockchain for the Commonwealth of Dominica, marking the first time a major public blockchain has partnered with a sovereign nation to develop its national blockchain infrastructure. On top of the government’s approval to issue Dominica Coin (“DMC”), a blockchain-based fan token to help promote Dominica’s global fanfare, seven existing TRON-based tokens – TRX, BTT, NFT, JST, USDD, USDT, TUSD, has received statutory status as an authorized digital currency and medium of exchange in the country.
