Jan 30, 2023

TRON Academy has become the official sponsor of the Princeton Blockchain Club , the premier blockchain-focused student organization at Princeton University, whose goal is to build a vibrant and diverse network for Web3 natives on campus. TRON DAO is thrilled to be engaged with such a prestigious institution and such an innovative club with a kindred focus on educating the next generation of blockchain developers. TRON Academy continues to expand its empowering presence on a growing number of college campuses, including a recent workshop at the University of California at Irvine. Blockchain at UCI is an ecosystem for blockchain education, development, and networking at UC Irvine and surrounding areas. They collaborate with industry leaders to host events with blockchain companies in pursuit of identifying efficient and practical blockchain technologies as well as helping students in Orange County develop the necessary skills for a blockchain career. Thursday and Friday, January 26 and 27, 2023, Blockchain at UCI hosted the TRON DAO team for a workshop focused on the basics of Web3 and the potential development opportunities available in the TRON ecosystem. TRON Academy also recently launched a research competition in collaboration with the TRON Climate Initiative . Ambitious and creative university students who are passionate about a more sustainable blockchain future are invited to submit their work. Interested student groups should conduct research then write papers exploring the environmental impact of blockchain technologies as well as suggesting any potential eco-friendly strategic solutions.

About TRON DAO TRON DAO is a community-governed DAO dedicated to accelerating the decentralization of the internet via blockchain technology and dApps. Founded in September 2017 by H.E. Justin Sun, the TRON network has continued to deliver impressive achievements since MainNet launch in May 2018. July 2018 also marked the ecosystem integration of BitTorrent, a pioneer in decentralized Web3 services boasting over 100 million monthly active users. The TRON network has gained incredible traction in recent years. As of January 2023, it has over 138 million total user accounts on the blockchain, more than 4.7 billion total transactions, and over $11.2 billion in total value locked (TVL), as reported on TRONSCAN. In addition, TRON hosts the largest circulating supply of USD Tether (USDT) stablecoin across the globe, overtaking USDT on Ethereum since April 2021. The TRON network completed full decentralization in December 2021 and is now a community-governed DAO. In May 2022, the over-collateralized decentralized stablecoin USDD was launched on the TRON blockchain, backed by the first-ever crypto reserve for the blockchain industry - TRON DAO Reserve, marking TRON's official entry into decentralized stablecoins. Most recently in October 2022, TRON was designated as the national blockchain for the Commonwealth of Dominica, which is the first time a major public blockchain partnering with a sovereign nation to develop its national blockchain infrastructure. On top of the government’s endorsement to issue Dominica Coin (“DMC”), a blockchain-based fan token to help promote Dominica’s global fanfare, seven existing TRON-based tokens - TRX, BTT, NFT, JST, USDD, USDT, TUSD, have been granted statutory status as authorized digital currency and medium of exchange in the country.
