TRON (TRX-USD) is a decentralized application platform and a blockchain-based operating system. Founded by the Tron Foundation, the initial objective of this platform was to help resolve issues in the global entertainment sector. Nonetheless, they later expanded the scope of their vision to tackle the whole DApps market.
The platform enables digital content creators to cut out middle-men such as Google Play Store and Apple Store. As such, they can obtain payment directly from content consumers. At present, a lot of traffic and user data is controlled by a few companies, namely, Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), and Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL). The platform aims to place this ownership in the hands of the creators.
