In the letter:
- The Tron Mainnet was launched exactly 2 years ago.
- Justin Sun mentioned several achievements on the occasion, including 850 nodes and over 6 million unique TRX accounts.
- He also has a surprise for everyone regarding a new IEO on the Poloniex Launchbase.
Until exactly two years ago, the Tron Foundation launched the TRON Mainnet. Since then, the Tron network has continued to grow and has hosted more than 6 million unique TRX accounts and over 850 nodes around the world. Tron’s founder and CEO Justin Sun marked the event in a tweet mentioning the network’s recent achievements in terms of nodes, total accounts, block height, and dapps hosted on the blockchain. The tweet from Mr. Sun can be found below.

TRON 4.0 and a new Poloniex Launchbase project
In addition, TRX investors and fans of the Tron project can look forward to two events in the coming days.
First, an upgrade is planned for the Tron Mainnet, which will be referred to as Tron 4.0. The updated mainnet has many expected features such as data protection, 2-level consensus mechanism, cross-chain interoperability and an enterprise edition of the network. The exact date of the launch has yet to be announced. According to previous publications, the Tron Foundation will provide more information in the coming days.
Second, Justin Sun hinted at a second IEO project on the Poloniex Launchpad crowdfunding platform. Details on the project are expected to be released on June 8th, according to Justin Sun’s announcement below.
We have an exciting project that will be announced on June 8th! Stay tuned and take a guess!

Performance of the first TRON IEO by Just (JST)
The last Tron IEO project on the Poloniex Launchbase did very well in terms of returns when trading was activated on the various exchanges that supported JST. The Just token broke records by trading 20x on the MXC exchange and returning 5.9x immediately after trading on Poloniex.
Given that seasoned traders and IEO investors are keen to list the returns on the first IEOs backed by an exchange, the second Tron IEO on Poloniex will most likely sell out in minutes, if not seconds. Just have to remember the success of BitTorrent (BTT) on Binance and the subsequent excitement over IEOs on the Launchpad. Therefore, a second IEO on Poloniex with TRX as the only investment vehicle will benefit both the Poloniex and Tron ecosystems.
