Tron Mining – Can Tron Be Mined In 2021?

2021 has been the year crypto investors and traders have been looking for over a decade. Bitcoin and many other Altcoins are having the bull run of their lifetime. The market capitalization of all the cryptos combined has crossed 1.7 trillion, with Bitcoin dominating the market with ~60% share. The mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies by global companies such as Visa, Mastercard, Microsoft, and PayPal has increased confidence over cryptos among the general public. These imply that cryptocurrencies are here to stay, and their presence in our daily lives is inevitable.

Crypto experts predict that there a few altcoins with huge potential both fundamentally and technically. If we watch those coins closely and invest in them, there is a possibility of them making us a fortune very shortly. One such altcoin is Tron (TRX). This crypto has been in the market for over four years and has shown great potential even since its inception. Since the beginning of 2021, TRX has grown about 194%, which is astronomical.

We realized that there is some keen interest out there related to mining TRX. Therefore, in this article, we have answered a few questions about Tron Mining and the future potential of this crypto. Let’s get started.

What is Tron?

Tron is a decentralized platform built around blockchain tech, just like many other significant cryptocurrencies. Tron was launched in 2017 with the mission of building a global entertainment system using distributed storage technology. The unique selling proposition of this crypto is to offer affordable sharing of digital content without any intermediaries seamlessly.       

For instance, Tron could replace marketplaces like YouTube and AppStore, which are currently acting as a medium between creators and end consumers. Currently, both parties are paying a hefty fee to use the platform and also compromise their privacy.

Using the Tron network, artists and creators get to directly share their content and enjoy all the profits while having complete control and ownership over their content.  This is the reason why many experts think that Tron has great potential in the upcoming future.    

Can Tron be Mined?

To answer this, let’s first understand the terms – Maximum Supply, Total Supply and Circulating supply of a cryptocurrency.

  • Maximum supply is the largest possible quantity of coins that can ever exist for crypto.
  • Total supply is the current amount of coins that’s already been created or mined.
  • Circulating supply is the current amount of coins that are both mined and technically available.  

Tronix (TRX) is the native cryptocurrency of the Tron platform. As of 22nd March, the price of one TRX is $0.064 with 71.6 billion TRX in supply. The total market cap of TRX is ~4.6 billion, with a total supply of 100.8 billion TRX.

Technically, Tron cannot be mined as there is no maximum supply for this crypto. All the coins (100.8 billion TRX) already exist, so there is no need to mine from a network like Bitcoins. However, you can earn TRX by staking your coins, and the supply is controlled by transaction fee and token creations, just like any other cryptos that use the PoS consensus algorithm.

How Tron Mining Works

As discussed, Tron cannot be mined as a coin, but you can earn TRX by following certain mining procedures. If you have a graphics processing unit, TRX can be gained by mining Ethereum. It is advisable to use GPUs over CPUs because the former offers a better hash rate. The working of Tron Mining is simple in 2021.

  • Using a proprietary Tron Mining platform, we should mine Ethereum in the way it is typically mined.
  • The Ethereum rewards generated there are taken by the platform and use for their mining pool.
  • The platform is automated in a way that it will exchange ETH and pay back to you in the form of TRX.
