Welcome to TRON CANADA, an TRON Super Representative candidate with a experienced technical team and influential community members located in Vancouver, Canada. Vancouver has been an early pioneer of the crypto economy, and its tech-savvy and crypto-friendly community, coupled with Canada’s stable economy make Vancouver an ideal location for blockchain development and adoption.
3. Social media influence
4. Annual community support plan
TRON Canada believes in a Tron ecosystem that is driven by the community for the good of the community, instead of ruled by select groups or individuals. We strongly believe TRON will attract the best talent in the blockchain community, empowering the TRON community to grow, and eventually thrive. In support of this, we propose that should we be elected as a block producer, 30% of our block rewards will be contributed in support of projects that highlight the potential of TRON, thereby helping to support the creation of a diverse dApp (Distributed Application) ecosystem on the TRON blockchain.
5. Team intros
We recognize the vital role public outreach and education plays in bringing any technology to mainstream adoption, and as such we’ve built strong ties within the local community and beyond, tirelessly advocating and educating through meetups, social media and community forums.
Our expertise building enterprise applications used by several of the largest organizations in China and North America, makes the TRON Canada team an ideal candidate to architect, deploy and maintain reliable and scalable TRON block production infrastructure.

8. Meet Up
9. Community promotion efforts
We will cooperate with blockchain@UBC, in order to approach the best academic resources of blockchain. For the People who did a great job helping with translation to successfully bridge the discussion between Chinese and overseas Block Producer communities, we will airdrop TRON Canada token for all community contributors. We also recognize the vital role public outreach and education plays in bringing any technology to mainstream adoption, and as such we’ve built strong ties within the local community and beyond, tirelessly advocating and educating through meetups, social media and community forums.
10. Testable nodes
We already have a testable node on our IP: 22.214.171.124:18888 TRON Canada
11. Plans for hardware expansion
During the initial launch stage of the TRON MainNet, we will run dual-node clusters (each cluster having both a full node, and block producing node) across two availability zones using AWS (Amazon Web Services). This cloud based tiered solution will provide the performance, scalability and high availability necessary to meet the growing needs of the nascent TRON network.
After June 26, Once we’ve gathered enough performance data to gain a solid understanding of the TRON blockchain’s requirements - we plan on moving the block producing nodes to bare-metal servers in Vancouver, co-located with our partners Downtown DATA center. Running bare-metal servers in a Vancouver based data center helps to increase the geographic diversity of TRON block producing nodes, and thus improves the overall resiliency of the TRON blockchain.
Features of Our System
TRON Canada will actively contribute to, and work with the TRON block producer community, in helping to develop an robust, scalable, and high availability architecture that will automatically failover to secondary systems in the event of a primary system failure.
Deploying block production nodes across multiple availability zones (data centers), and across multiple geographic regions creates redundancy, resulting in high availability. In the case a primary block producer node becomes unavailable (whether due to a server, or service provider incident), the secondary node located in another availability zone would automatically take over the block-producing role.
Load balancers are designed to handle spikes in incoming network traffic, and distribute or balance the traffic “load” across multiple servers, and even across multiple data centers. Traffic is dynamically redirected based on the health status of the target servers, minimizing latency, and maximizing performance.
Our infrastructure is pro-actively monitored around the clock, 24/7, 365 days of the year. In the case of an abnormal event occurring (excessive CPU, memory or traffic utilization), alarms are triggered, and our team is notified so we can resolve any issues and keep things running smoothly, avoiding system failure, and minimizing downtime.
As part of our commitment to maintaining the high availability of our block production infrastructure, we use AWS Shield to protect against DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks on our network infrastructure. AWS Shield works in conjunction with our network load balancers, providing always-on detection, helping to minimize service latency, and avoid downtime.
