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.
What Is Tronix (TRX)?
The native coin (TRX) can be used by content consumers to pay creators for in-game assets, or use as currency in gaming or to reward creators directly for their entertainment content or to purchase additional access. In turn, the coin can be used by content creators to pay for various services on the network.
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.
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. Freezing (staking) TRX tokens results in energy and bandwidth required to interact smoothly with the network as well as the increase in voting power of voting for Super Representatives.
TP Calculation: 1 TP for 1 frozen TRX
How are Rewards Calculated?
Staking rewards are distributed by the Super Representatives depending on the rules that they have set. More information can be found by joining TRON telegram group or by visiting the link below. https://developers.tron.network/docs/super-representatives-1#section-rewards-calculation
You can go to StakingRewards’ TRX Staking Calculator to find out the potential rewards.
