Since its inception, Oikos always had a clear goal in mind: to bring the best DeFi services on the Tron network. We have been working around the clock, coordinating efforts between our initiatives to make this happen. Today, we are pleased to share some initial results with you.
The Tron network is evolving fast, with growing demand and a number of services launched on the platform. One of the most important components of a successful software venture, of any kind, is to have a dedicated and motivated community of users and developers working together. In order to keep up with the competition, Tron desperately needs mature development toolkits and better documentation, amongst the other things. Sensing this gap, the Oikos team worked with dedication toward filling it. During the past months, we have ported Ethereum’s most important pieces of software, such as Web3, Truffle, and Graph protocol to work seamlessly with the Tron network. …
We’re very excited to announce OpenTron, the first fully independent implementation of the Tron protocol! It has been under active development for several months and while still a work in progress, it is now nearing completion.
The project is currently financed and developed by Oikos but it is open source and we are in the process of setting up an independent foundation, the OpenTron foundation, which will be completely community-driven. Please contact us by email or on Telegram if you would like to be involved with the foundation.
The goals of the project are to provide a fast and lightweight Tron client which will contribute to decentralization and encourage community participation. We are also hoping to introduce modern APIs which will make Tron development easier for developers. We have already been using them with success to port TheGraph to Tron (another upcoming announcement!). …
