Pros
  • + Developing quickly with lots of capital and community presence
  • + Positioned well in the Entertainment Space as the market leader
  • + Development focus is for large commercial adoption
  • + Not a blockchain. Uses Distributed Ledger Technology to achieve similar end goals and benefits.
  • + Large Financial Institutional backing
  • + Built specifically for Enterprise use
  • + Can support effective private networks
  • + Built for enterprise implementations
  • + Strong, professional backing of contributors
Cons
  • - Still a while before large scale viability
  • - Controversey with copying Ethereum's platform
  • - Not targeted for Private Enterprise use
  • - Less use cases than alternatives
  • - Smaller Developer Community (Slower Updates)
  • - Not a lot of developer expertise compared to competition
  • - Only centralized aspect is the Certificate Authority (CA) who issues certificates to eligible parties
  • - Support dependent on IBM’s help centre
  • - Still relatively young in development

Overview
The Tron Protocol aims to host entertainment applications and digital content on a decentralized platform fuelled by the TRX token economy. Developed originally on the Ethereum protocol, Tron has invested significant development effort to create their own, scalable protocol and launch their main net in June 2018.
Corda is a distributed ledger platform designed to record, manage and automate legal agreements between business partners. Designed by (and for) the worlds largest financial institutions yet with applications in multiple industries. It offers a unique response to the privacy and scalability challenges facing decentralised applications.
Modular blockchain platform architecture allowing plug-and-play implementations of various functions. Hosts any mainstream language for smart contract development.

  Security  
  •  
Security model
Public Blockchain with security features built in.

Lamport digital signature algorithm. Claims to be resistant to quantum computer attacks.

Customized P2P network with data storage encryption, location transparency, source nontraceability

Merkle Patricia Trie data structure
Data is only shared between parties involved in the transaction, verifiers, and permissioned observers. This allows an extra layer of security from traditional DLT where the data is spread throughout the network.
Membership Service Provider - pluggable interface that supports customizable credential architectures and certificate authorities

Concrete identity format
User credential validation
User credential revocation
Signature generation and verification
  •  
Permissions
Consortium

Permissioned, private network.
  •  
Privacy
Based on zero knowledge proof. Hides the send, receipt address and transfer amount.
Privacy concerns are addressed through the pluggable uniqueness services, and restriction of viewing transactions.
Private Channels
  Algorithms  
  •  
Consensus
Fast Paxos PoS variant.

The consensus of TRON adopts a three-step strategy.
Notaries - Pluggable Framework, Validity consensus and Uniqueness consensus
Multiple options:

Pluggable Framework
No-op (no consensus)

Blockchain / DLT type
Public
Not a blockchain. Uses DLT to create transaction efficiencies between permissioned parties rather than the same ledger for the entire network, which R3 Corda believes is inefficient.
Federated / Consortium, Permissioned Network
  •  
Modularity
Similar to Ethereum:
Generic, with DApp and Smart Contract support for wider applications
Less focus on modularity
Modular Architecture is a core focus of Platform
  •  
Scalability
Currently supports 15 TPS as it is on the Ethereum platform. Will be able to support up to 1000 TPS once main net launches
Corda focuses on scaling through reducing inefficiencies in consensus mechanisms. By limiting involvement to just the transacting parties, beneficiaries, and verifiers it aims to position itself as more scalable than PoW
1000 TPS capacity for now. Developed with scaling in mind. Provides flexibility in size and throughput depending on the implementation.

A Performance and Scalability Workgroup exists within the community to discuss, research, and identify key use cases and metrics for all blockchains.
