Team Of TRON Crypto Platform Expands To 40 People
The TRON Foundation and the TRON mainnet were developing rapidly in 2018. There were only two engineers at the beginning of the project, but now the development team has more than 40 people, CCN reports, referring to an interview with Marcus Zhao, TRON's Head of Protocol.
Initially, the platform was aimed at high performance and scalability, and now the main network of TRON includes a variety of crypto exchanges, network games, and apps.
Such success was achieved thanks to new developers, who managed to stabilize the work of the blockchain. Zhao stresses that employees come primarily from high-tech companies, such as Alibaba and Baidu.
The platform developers faced difficulties during the first days of operation. They had to deal with everything: network development, design, and hiring. However, they managed to expand to 10, and then to 20 people, quite quickly.
At the beginning of 2019, already 40 engineers are working at TRON. They are divided into three small groups – specialists in architecture, employees working with algorithms, and the group responsible for smart contracts, Marcus Zhao explained.
As 2018 comes to an end, we interviewed #TRON's Head of Protocol, Marcus Zhao, to get a glimpse of how the team and project have evolved over the past year. We've grown from a few ambitious and dedicated souls to over 300+ colleagues across the globe! $TRX https://t.co/xSNvq7Mjiu— TRON Foundation (@Tronfoundation) 31 декабря 2018 г.
TRON founder Justin Sun also listed the company's achievements on Twitter, emphasizing that the network had a million accounts at the end of 2018. Moreover, 100 million smart contracts were registered. In 2019, TRON will strive to enter the list of top four cryptocurrencies by market capitalization.
