  • TRON down 4% during recent 24 hours.
  • Odyssey 2.0 protocol failed to attract new buyers.

Tron, now the 10th largest digital asset by market capitalization, seems to be unimpressed by the MainNet launch as the price spiked to $0.6368 only to crash to Asian low at $0.0570. Now that the volatility subsided, TRX/USD is changing hands at $0.6070.

TRON has left Ethereum ecosystem to run on its own  Odyssey 2.0 protocol, promising to create a full-fledged network of  Super Representatives in less them a month. The new protocol should support faster transactions and allow the third parties to deploy their distributed apps on the network.  

“Today I announce with confidence that the development for the Tron mainnet Odyssey 2.0 is complete. Starting today, the Tron community will be able to download and run Tron’s official mainnet, Odyssey 2.0, on the Tron GitHub page,”  Tron’s founder Justin Sun commented.

However, the  market response is rather muted and even cold as the coin is down nearly 4% since this time on Wednesday.
