February 28 was notable for updates. On the last day of the calendar winter, two irreconcilable rivals, which are Ethereum and TRON, rolled out Constantinople (St.Petersburg) and Odyssey 3.5 updates, respectively. However, this has not affected the market situation so far.
Justin SUN announced the TRON update on his Twitter account and noted that the multi-signature feature is a must to attract institutional investors to cryptocurrencies
#TRON will launch 3.5 hard fork upgrade on 2/28. New Features: 1. multi-sig and acct mng, institution ready 2. Dynamic energy adjustment to real-time network performance 3. 50% up performance & res usage 4. Better VM safety, events server for Dapps. Go! #TRX $TRX— Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) 24 февраля 2019 г.
Dynamic energy regulation for real-time network performance has been successfully introduced.
Mainnet has got a 50% performance improvement.
Security enhancements for dApps were introduced as well.
However, the most significant change of this update is a reduction of rewards for the blocks from 3 ETH per block to 2 ETH, which is a continuation of the earlier concept from the previous Byzantium fork, which reduced the reward from 5 ETH to 3 ETH. The price of ETH has not responded to the changes and is stable at about $140 per unit.
