With the TRON mainnet swap underway, the Tron Foundation started the process of destroying, also known as “burning,” its old ERC20 tokens. The first round of token burns sent nearly $2 billion TRX to their death.
On June 25, Tron began migrating its tokens from the Ethereum network to its native blockchain. The transition left two versions of Tron tokens, including billions of old testnet Tron ERC20 tokens under the Tron Foundation control. These tokens will soon be worthless as the new chain stabilizes.
The Tron Foundation posted a screenshot of Etherscan, showing 49,491,130,776.584279 TRX being sent to the Ethereum address 0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000.
Right on Time
The Tron roadmap has been precisely accurate so far, with the past several events all occurring on the planned date.
In the past few weeks, Tron announced that it acquired BitTorrent for $140 million and along with ZenCash would become a payment option on Pornhub.
So far, the Tron mainnet swap has been viewed successful, with over 493 nodes currently operating.
