TRON achieved a series of developments and collaborations that have enhanced its position in the Web3 space. The following are highlights from the year 2023.

Network growth and stablecoin dominance

The TRON network has seen proper growth, with a 54% increase in accounts, now exceeding 204 million. The total transaction volume reached over $10 trillion, and Total Value Locked (TVL) achieved a global ranking of second, reaching $8.14 billion, according to DefiLlama. The ascent of TRON-based stablecoins—such as USDT, TUSD, USDC, USDD, and USDJ—have amounted to $50 billion in value, and has helped grow the DeFi landscape.

Significant collaborations

Strategic collaborations have been at the forefront of TRON’s achievements. TRON supported the launch of the Dominica Metaverse Bound Token (DMBT) by DMC Labs, as part of the Dominica Metaverse program endorsed by the Dominica government. Additionally, TRON joined the Japan Cryptoasset Business Association (JCBA) representing its commitment to further exploring the Japanese market. Furthermore, integrations with Google Cloud’s BigQuery and Huawei’s Web 3.0 Node Engine Service have expanded TRON’s network capabilities.

HackaTRON and TRON builder tour

Starting with HackaTRON Season 4, in collaboration with HTX, it engaged over 625 participants and 172 projects, resulting in 30 judge-voted and 30 community-voted winners across DeFi, Web3, NFT, GameFi, Builder, and Eco-Friendly tracks. Season 5, in collaboration with BitTorrent Chain (BTTC) and HTX, attracted over 3,500 participants and more than 2,000 projects. This season witnessed 25 judge-voted qualifiers and 25 community-voted winners in Web3, DeFi, Artistry, Builder, and AI tracks. 2023 HackaTRON S4 and S5 boasted a substantial prize pool of up to $1,000,000* in total.

Alongside, the TRON Builder Tour (TBT) was hosted in various stops, such as Stanford, Princeton, New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, and Barcelona. Notably, the Princeton stop had nearly 100 participants and a prize pool of up to $8,000*. In each city, the tour united blockchain enthusiasts, developers, and students, fostering a learning and networking environment. Note: All prizes were issued in USDD, not USD, restrictions applied.

Ecosystem initiatives

Another major milestone reached in the year 2023 by TRON was the inauguration of the $100 million AI Development Fund, showcasing TRON’s initiative to blend artificial intelligence with blockchain technology. Another initiative created was the TRON Climate Initiative which further underscored TRON’s commitment to sustainability.
