So, after the devastating increase of Ethereum’s gas fee, many users and DAaps’ developers moved to alternative blockchains. Of course, the Binance Smart Chain and its BNB coin have become the primary beneficiary of crypto projects’ mass migration. But another side that rode that wave was the TRON blockchain with its TRX coin. Continue reading to learn more about TRON’s network, inflation, and how to mint TRX cryptocurrency.

What’s TRON?

Tron is a decentralized blockchain that relies on the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) model. Primary Tron’s goal is to decentralize the Internet and its infrastructure. That’s why the team bought BitTorrent in 2018. Also, like the Ethereum chain, it has smart contracts that offer higher throughput, higher scalability, and higher availability for all Decentralized Applications in the TRON ecosystem. In this way, approximately 1% of all newly created crypto startups issue their altcoins by using the TRC-20 standard. And much like ETH cryptocurrency is for Ethereum, the Tronix (TRX) altcoin is for the Tron blockchain.

Sun Network

The Tron ecosystem has gotten the Sun Network sidechain thanks to the recent update. Such a side chain helps DApps operate on TRON with lower energy consumption, faster speed, and enhanced safety, providing unlimited capacity for TRON’s network. For example, a sender pays only a tiny fraction of the mainchain’s cost when transferring through Sun Network.

What’s the TRX coin?

TRX is a cryptocurrency running on Tron’s network. People use this currency to pay gas fees on the Tron blockchain. Also, developers have to pay a fee for deploying smart contracts to the chain. Although TRX runs on many chains, this article explains only how to trade TRX coins that run on the Ethereum network on Tokpie. Besides, you can obtain Tron chain’s Tronix (TRX) with the Bank Card or Apple Pay.

How to mint TRX?

You must complete two steps to start earning TRX coins by minting. 

Step 1. Become a Super Representatives (SR) Candidate. Appling to SR will require advance payment of the 9999 TRX fee. Success is not guaranteed.

Step 2. After becoming an SR candidate, you could run a Witness Node. Running a witness node will require hardware with the following minimum parameters: 16 CPU, 32 RAM, and 1 TB HDD.

How much can I earn?

The good news is that your Tron’s Witness Node doesn’t have to produce blocks to earn $TRX. For instance, if you get 1920 votes, earnings are one coin. But if you obtain 100,000 votes, the profit will be seven coins. So, output from votes can be 1-7 Tronix. The general formula is

Daily Vote Reward = Total Vote Reward (460,800) * % of Votes

Moreover, your profits can be higher if your node is elected. So, you also get block rewards due to the formula: Total Rewards = Vote Reward x brokerage ratio+ Block Reward x brokerage ratio, where the ratio is 20% by default. 

What’s TRX inflation rate?

As for now, the total TRON supply is 101,825,507,541 TRX, and it’s changing every day because of inflation. Such TRX inflation is 1.54% – 1.82% per year. The calculation is simple and consists of two parts: Votes and Block rewards. The first impact to total supply comes from Candidates’ Rewards (Vote Rewards). So, 127 individuals share 1,152,000 $TRX every 6 hours. This part of the reward equals 1,681,920,000 TRX each year. The second part comes from Super Representatives’ Reward (Block Rewards). Because the TRON Protocol network generates one block every 3 seconds, each block gives 16 TRX to Super Representatives. Therefore, 168,192,000 TRX go to Super Representatives annually.

To summarize, we have 1,850,112,000 coins increasing total supply every year. Find the approximate calculation of the Tron Inflation rates for 2022 – 2032 years in the table below. Note that sometimes the Tron DAO community decides to burn some coins. Such burnings can decrease the Tronix inflation, of course.
