TRONĀ (TRX) officially reached 1 million network accounts on December 23, only 184 days after its mainnet went live.

As first highlighted by Misha Lederman, EthereumĀ (ETH) accomplished the same feat last January, 542 days after its own mainnet launch. This means that TRON hit 1 million accounts roughly 3-times faster than Ethereum.

While this comparison is interesting, it ultimately isn’t that revealing, given the fact the cryptocurrency market and awareness when Ethereum first launched was a fraction of what it is today.

There are other metrics that better exemplify the relative growth of the TRON network. For instance, last November, TRON officially surpassed the highest single-day transaction total for Ethereum. Since that time, TRON’s daily transactions have more than doubled to 3.3 million.

While TRON has seemingly taken the lead from a metrics standpoint, Ethereum recently took a step toward being able to processĀ 1 million transactions per second afterĀ Red Eyes, the first version of theĀ Raiden NetworkĀ (RDN), a protocol for scaling token transfers on Ethereum, was successfully deployed on the Ethereum mainnet.
