Overview
Modular Blockchain Environment using Hyperledger Fabric, delivered via IBM Cloud
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.
Generic, open-source,  blockchain based distributed computing platform for applications to be built upon.
