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
No data encryption or channel partition and is public.

Merkle Patricia Trie Data structure
SGX / PoET

All transactions are signed by known identities.
Permissions
Permissioned, Permissionless depending on application
Privacy
Based on zero knowledge proof. Hides the send, receipt address and transfer amount.
Limited (zk-SNARKs, Ring signatures)
Configrable permissions for any node cluster within the network
Algorithms
Consensus
Fast Paxos PoS variant.

The consensus of TRON adopts a three-step strategy.
PoET
Dynamic, Pluggable Consensus Algorithms
Efficiency
Transaction Time
Block Confirmation Time
Development
Proprietary Codebase
Open source but goverened by the TRON organization
General
Blockchain / DLT type
Public with Private Forks
Federated / Consortium, Permissioned Network
Modularity
Similar to Ethereum:
Generic, with DApp and Smart Contract support for wider applications
Generic, with DApp and Smart Contract support for wider applications
Modular Architecture. Incorporates IoT Sensors that can broaden the use case.
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
limited by PoW

currently supports a maximum of 15 TPS
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.
