On the 11th of October, the leader of our BISITE groups’ Blockchain team, Diego Valdeolmillos, deployed the first ever Smart Contract in TRON (a cryptocurrency based on Blockchain), which is in the 11th place of cryptocurrency market capitalization, its legacy will be carried from generation to generation, as long as the last node of this network continues to operate.

The Tron protocol, one of the world’s biggest blockchain based operative systems, provides scalable support, availability and high performance to all the decentralized applications in the TRON ecosystem, more than 500,000 users from over 100 different countries have become part of this network, that overcomes its own limits every day.

The technology used by this blockchain is much more ecological than Bitcoin and Ehtereum. 27 representatives are voted for by the network participants. Those representatives are in charge of establishing consensus, validating transactions and adding new blocks to the chain.

Another characteristic of TRON is that the community itself can change the configuration of the chain by means of the representatives. On the 8th of October, the CrytpoGuyInZA representative emitted a proposal to activate the execution of Smart Contracts. They were activated on the 11th of October, at 2 p.m. and Diego was the first one to launch a contract at 14:01:33 in  block 311182.

The representative that emitted the proposal was in charge of validating this block, it became the first node to ever validate a TRON Smart Contract  and its success was shared on Twitter and Reddit.
