TRON prepares for a mainnet upgrade that will strengthen its security and make it easier for developers to build on top of the network. The upgrade may coincide with a period of high volatility for TRX, according to the charts.
TRON is one of the largest blockchain-based operating systems in the world. The platform is dedicated to building the infrastructure for a decentralized Internet. TRON advertises its protocol as a scalable, high-availability, and high-throughput computing layer that serves as the foundation for decentralized applications (dApps).
As part of its routine improvements, the TRON Foundation announced in a blog post that TRON will go through a mainnet upgrade on June 18.
Dubbed “Odyssey-V3.6,” the update contains new features that allow developers to create customizable DApps, enhance protocol data check, add transaction permission settings for users, and optimize the peer-to-peer network.
With continuous updates & iterations, the #TRON MainNet will soon be upgraded to version Odyssey 3.6. This version will realize a more lightweight built-in event server with added protocol data check. Thanks to our developers for their hard work. #TRX $TRX https://t.co/8ep7hSygKu

With the Odyssey-V3.1 upgrade back in October 2018, Justin Sun, the founder of TRON, stated that TRX will be faster than Ethereum and cheaper than EOS. Now, with Odyssey-V3.6 he believes that it will be more secure and easy to work with than other smart-contract blockchains.
Based on community consensus, #TRON will be upgrading to Odyssey 3.1 at 8pm SGT. The TRON Committee function & TVM will go live, marking the start of the Smart Contract Era.
