- TRON has released details of its next phase of expansion
- The expansion will take place in three phases over the next few months
- The first phase will begin on May 30, 2019
This came via an April 8, 2019 announcement that detailed the release program for their scalability solution, the Sun Network.
According to the announcement, the Sun Network release plan includes dApps sidechains, cross-chain infrastructures, and other expansion projects. The expansion program will improve the capacity of the TRON Network and improve the overall TPS and smart contract execution of TRON.
It also gave some clarification as to the purpose of the dappChain, which is TRON’s D’App sidechain expansion project which will increase the capacity of TRON’s D’app. Overall, the dappChain will focus on executing smart contracts in a way that makes use of less energy while improving security and efficiency,
The Timeline Ahead
The upcoming expansion efforts will take place in three phases.
The first phase is the testnet phase which will begin on May 30, 2019. This phase will focus on the support of sidechain smart contracts in order to realize the unlimited expansion of the mainnet. Some key features of this phase include sidechain expansion, security of the sidechain assets and lowered costs.
The second phase will begin on August 10, 2019, and is the official launch phase. This phase will focus on expanding on the characteristic of decentralization and asset security while supporting the community to carry out sidechain ecological construction. This period will be marked by strong decentralization and an active ecosystem.
The third and last stage is the optimization stage which will begin on September 15, 2019. At this time, TRON will work on perfecting the toolset and ease of use to facilitate the deployment and integration of the sidechains. This will be the final activity to close out this round of expansion of the TRON ecosystem.
These new developments are bound to help TRON maintain the dominance it holds in the dApp market along with its ownership of the only decentralized app store in the world. It will certainly be interesting to see how these events unfold and what they will mean for the future of TRON.
