The founder and CEO of TRON, Justin Sun has recently claimed that he thinks the TRON ecosystem will ‘officially collaborate’ with Ethereum this year. Sun has made his comments during an interview on The Crypto Chick podcast on 6th April.
Sun specifically said that he believes, “even within this year we will see Tron even collaborate, officially collaborate, with Ethereum.” This was a response to a question on Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin’s recent tweets about TRON, Sun stated that he thinks, “competition brings a better product.” Later, he added, “I think in the future we will even collaborate with lots of Ethereum developers and also the enterprises built on Ethereum before to make the industry better.”
In addition to this, Sun also announced that a second-layer scalability solution for TRON is on the way. The CEO claims that it will increase transaction throughput by at least a 100 times and dramatically decrease fees. The solution will be launched sometime in the second quarter of this year. Sun recently sent out a tweet in regards to the solution, which has been dubbed as the Sun Network.
#TRON will release the detail of #Sun Network soon! #SUNNetwork is our layer 2 solution to achieve 100X scalability. #TRON’s dapp usage is poised to scale from the current millions to hundreds of millions after launch. GO #TRX and #BTT! #BitTorrent #BTT #TRX

During the interview with Rachel Wolfson, Sun also noted that the TRON-based version of stablecoin Tether is getting ready to launch tomorrow, April 9th. The CEO argued that the TRON-based version of the stablecoin will allow for cheaper and quicker transactions than the Bitcoin-based Omni protocol.
Furthermore, Sun highlighted that later in the year, TRON is going to introduce a “new network with a privacy option,” based on the technology used by Zcash (ZEC).
