As an EEA member, TRON is a part of a neighborhood of organizations working to advance Ethereum and drive trade adoption. Within the Q&A beneath, we interviewed Dave Uhryniak, TRON’s Director of Ecosystem Growth, about how the group contributes to the Ethereum enterprise ecosystem.
Please introduce your organization and your self.
I’m Dave Uhryniak, the director of ecosystem growth at TRON DAO. The TRON community is a Layer 1 blockchain that’s absolutely Ethereum Digital Machine (EVM)-compatible. It was based in 2017 by H.E. Justin Solar, and since then, it has change into one of many fastest-growing public chains on the planet. As of December 2022, it has over 127 million person accounts on the blockchain, greater than 4.4 billion transactions, and over $9.7 billion in whole worth locked (TVL).

We imagine in a multi-chain future and are at all times excited about partnering with different Layer 1 and Layer 2 blockchains. Not solely will the longer term be multi-chain, however it is going to be collaborative. As we proceed to construct out our world presence, it is crucial that we take part within the bigger blockchain neighborhood. The EEA represents most of the trade’s most collaborative leaders, and we needed to contribute as a lot as potential. We’re the one non-Ethereum-based blockchain at present an EEA member; nevertheless, we encourage others to change into concerned.
What are you at present engaged on close to Ethereum? How will end-users profit out of your work?
Our work usually pertains to Ethereum. A method is thru our cross-chain bridge protocol, BitTorrent Chain (BTTC), which connects customers throughout TRON, BNB Chain, and Ethereum, with extra Layer 1s to assist sooner or later. Builders on the BitTorrent Chain can launch their initiatives and instantly allow customers of every of those very massive chains to entry their functions.

As an EVM-compatible chain, we carry a novel perspective to the group, in addition to choices to builders.
Regulatory teams are additionally thrilling. TRON is the most important blockchain by quantity on which the USD Tether stablecoin circulates, and we’ve our personal decentralized over-collateralized stablecoin as effectively — Decentralized USD (USDD).
Stablecoin laws is quickly evolving around the globe. Given our outstanding place within the world stablecoin market, we’ve an awesome deal to supply. In truth, Ethereum and TRON mixed are answerable for almost all the world USD-based stablecoin quantity.
