Consistency in growth and development has seemingly become a norm within the Tron ecosystem. A few minutes ago, the CEO of Tron, Justin Sun hinted about the data released recently by TRONSCAN, the arguably best block explorer of TRON network, regarding another milestone clinched by TRON.
Justin shared this information with his teeming Twitter followers on 6th January 2020. He said the latest data made available by TRONSCAN revealed that the block height of TRON has exceeded 16 million. He added that it’s the result of the efforts to build a decentralized network.
He said, “According to the latest data from TRONSCAN, block height of TRON has exceeded 16 million. TRON ecosystem has developed rapidly and continues to make efforts to build the decentralized internet.”

Meaning of Block Height
In relation to cryptocurrency, block height can be described as the current number of blocks in a blockchain. The genesis block is always recognized as the first in any blockchain, with a block height that is equal to zero.
So, this automatically makes the block height a positive integer greater than zero. In this regard, a block can be termed as a collection of individual transactions. In other to maintain the integrity of the block and blockchain entirely, each block must contain a cryptographic hash.
So, the block height recently achieved by Justin Sun’s blockchain project is a huge sign of consistent growth and development in its ecosystem. The cryptographic project is still advancing, therefore, there is still a lot of time for improvement.
