New to TRON?

Founded in 2017 by Justin Sun, TRON labels itself as an ambitious project that has a high throughput, scalability, and availability. It is a protocol dedicated to building the infrastructure for a truly decentralized internet. 

Initially, TRON was housed in the ecosystem of Ethereum as an ERC20 token. Due to the scalability problems associated with Ethereum’s old network coupled with high gas fees, TRON announced in 2018 that it is moving to an independent peer-to-peer network. 

What contributed to the spike in TVL?     

TRON TVL ascended in July due to decentralized applications (dApps) in its ecosystem soaring to new highs. 

Decentralized lending platform JustLend (which has the most TVL in TRON) rose by more than 19% in the last month. Algorithmic stablecoin JustStables (USDJ) increased by more than 2% within the same period. Decentralized exchanges (DEXs) SocialSwap and UniFi were up by more than 6% and 550% respectively.
