What is TRON?
TRON is an ambitious project dedicated to the establishment of a truly decentralized Internet and its infrastructure. The TRON Protocol, one of the largest blockchain based operating systems in the world, offers base public blockchain support of high throughput, high scalability, and high availability for all decentralized applications in the TRON ecosystem.
Every account in TRON’s network can vote for the Super Representatives they support. Voting requires TRON Power (TP), which is determined by the users’ frozen balance.
TP Calculation: 1 TP for 1 frozen TRX
In TRON network, any account can apply to become a super representative candidate. Every account can vote for super representative candidates. The top 27 candidates with the most votes are the super representatives. The top 127 candidates (including 27 SRs) can be awarded according to their voting rate. Super representatives will be obligated to generate blocks and package transactions, as well as corresponding voting rewards and block rewards.
