AMA with Klever CEO Dio Ianakiara
If you missed the live AMA with Klever's CEO Dio Ianakiara, no need to worry. Here is the full transcript where Dio addressed Klever's upcoming platforms, security and KLV's new burn mechanism.
TRON Proposal 51 Set To Make TRX Deflationary Asset
The new proposal would increase bandwidth & energy fees by 3,5x in order to encourage a higher TRX freezing rate, reduce TRX in circulation & promote TRX's value increase through a deflationary model.
Proposal 51 is a result of discussions initiated during the last SR meeting where TRON’s representatives presented network statistics following the last energy price increases, which showed that the last upgrade did not reduce valuable transaction volume but it did increase the amount of frozen TRX in the network.
It’s aimed at removing their rate and mitigating the impact of such spam transactions. The other primary goal is to have players freeze more TRX in order to pay less transaction fees.
Proposal 51 and its goals are simple and could be very impactful for the network:
Increase the current near-minimal fees for bandwidth and energy by 3,5 times in order to encourage higher freezing rate of TRX, diminish low-value transactions (spam txs), increase security, reduce TRX in circulation, and promote the increase of TRX’s value by eventually making TRX a deflationary asset.
Klever Tutorial: How To Freeze TRX For Energy & Bandwidth To Lower Fees
The successful voting for Proposal 51 implements 3,5 times higher TRX network fees for Bandwidth and Energy on the TRON blockchain, a move that is aimed at making TRX a deflationary asset by burning more TRX than is created.
After the implementation of Proposal 51, raising the fees on TRON by 3,5 times, users will need to freeze TRX to get Energy & Bandwidth to enjoy lower fees. Here are the steps to freeze TRX in Klever.
What is Energy & Bandwidth?
To explain Bandwidth and Energy in simple words, TRON Bandwidth allows users to perform transactions on the blockchain without paying extra network fees, while Energy is a special resource used to process smart contracts on the TRON network.
What is important from a user perspective, particularly if you are interacting with smart contracts on TRON, is to freeze more TRX for Energy in order to continue to use those smart contracts with no or very small network fees.
