Tron is a decentralised blockchain platform, established in 2017 in Singapore. The Tron Foundation, the non-profit behind the network, is headed by Justin Sun.
The aim of the network is to provide a digital means of sharing entertainment content, which might conceivably help the entertainment industry to rid itself of middlemen, allowing creators to get their content directly to the consumers who enjoy it. It does this through a kind of distributed storage.
This contrasts sharply with the centralised model pursued by companies like Netflix and Amazon Prime, where all of the content is stored and controlled by a single organisation which takes a considerable cut. Tron seeks to change that, making distribution truly decentralised.
The network comes with its own native currency, the Tronix.
