Founded in September 2017 by HE Justin Sun, the TRON network has delivered impressive performance since the launch of MainNet 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 incredible traction in recent years. As of July 2023, it has a total of over 170.5 million user accounts on the blockchain, over 6.05 billion total transactions and over $12.74 billion in total value locked (TVL), as reported on TRONSCAN.

In addition to government 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, have been given legal status as an authorized digital currency and medium of exchange in the country.
