Flow, created by Dapper Labs (the company behind CryptoKitties), is a blockchain network designed to be fast, secure, and developer-friendly. It was developed as a solution to Ethereum's scalability issues, particularly high transaction fees during the CryptoKitties hype. The Flow team concluded that shards and sidechains were not long-lasting solutions for apps that require high performance.
Flow has garnered investment from prominent backers such as Andreessen Horowitz, Warner Music Group, Union Square Ventures, and Digital Currency Group.

TRON's mission is to build a decentralized internet and become the largest blockchain-based operating system in the world, known as the TRON protocol. It offers high scalability, availability, and throughput computing to support decentralized applications (dapps) through smart contracts. TRON is compatible with Ethereum EVM-based smart contracts, eliminating the need for developers to rewrite their applications in Solidity.
TRON is governed by nodes located worldwide and does not rely on proof of work or mining for decentralization. This makes it suitable for dapps that require high-speed transactions, particularly in gaming. The TRON network already hosts several tokens, and the decentralized exchange TRX.market has been launched.
In July 2018, TRON acquired BitTorrent, one of the largest P2P file-sharing protocols. This led to the launch of BitTorrent Token (BTT), a cryptocurrency used to incentivize file sharing and storage within the network.
Both Flow and TRON aim to provide scalable, high-performance blockchain solutions. Flow specifically focuses on gaming and social networks, while TRON aims to be a decentralized internet operating system. Investors have shown significant interest in both projects, and they have the potential to drive innovation in their respective domains.
