Overview
Modular Blockchain Platform, released by Hyperledger and championed by Intel.

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.
Modular Blockchain Environment using Hyperledger Fabric, delivered via IBM Cloud

  Security  
  •  
Security model
SGX / PoET

All transactions are signed by known identities.
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
Similar security models to Hyperledger Fabric, but also incorporates the IBM Cloud Services as an added security layer when using the platform.
  •  
Permissions
Permissioned, Permissionless depending on application
  •  
Privacy
Configrable permissions for any node cluster within the network
Based on zero knowledge proof. Hides the send, receipt address and transfer amount.

Consensus
PoET
Dynamic, Pluggable Consensus Algorithms
Fast Paxos PoS variant.

The consensus of TRON adopts a three-step strategy.
Plugable consensus (PBFT)

Modularity
Modular Architecture. Incorporates IoT Sensors that can broaden the use case.
Similar to Ethereum:
Generic, with DApp and Smart Contract support for wider applications
Plug + Play Architecture

Easy to operate software platform to build out use case, test, and implement
  •  
Scalability
1000 TPS. Built to be scalable in the way that consensus algorithms can be changed, applications are separate from the core system, and transactions can occur in parallel.
Currently supports 15 TPS as it is on the Ethereum platform. Will be able to support up to 1000 TPS once main net launches
Supports 1000 TPS. Designed for high throughput business applications. Scales relative to Hyperledger Fabric new developments.
