“TRON has long been regarded as one of the public chains with the greatest potential in the industry,” the company stated in a recent blog post.

“With continuous updates and iterations, the TRON MainNet will soon be upgraded to version 3.6.”

The version 3.6 upgrade will feature new tools making decentralized application (DApp) creation easier, as well as increase network protection from bad actors.

Other Odyssey-V3.6 features include:

The new features in version 3.6 are as follows:

● New instructions added for the TRON Virtual Machine (TVM), including create2, bitwise shifting, and extcodehash, supporting more new features;
● Allow contract deployer to clear his contract’s existed ABI, further improving the privacy of the contract;
● Implement a more lightweight built-in event server, providing convenience for DApp developers to customize their own event service when they choose to switch on this feature.
● Enhance protocol data check to prevent malicious data on the chain;
● Add transaction permission settings for users, compatible with multi-signature;
● Optimize the P2P network and the block/transaction broadcasting process for gRPC/HTTP interface, further improving the stability of the TRON network.

The company also notes the TRON public chain has the ability to handle “tens of thousands” transactions per second (TPS).

Currently, TRON steadily achieves 2,000 TPS, dominating the 25 TPS Ethereum blockchain, as well as bitcoin’s (BTC) network, which can only handle 3-6 TPS.

In a recent Tweet regarding the Odyssey MainNet, TRON CEO Justin Sun stated:

“TRON will be 200x faster vs. ETH, 100x cheaper vs. EOS. dApp developers & users, this one is for you!”
