can participate in the running of the TRON blockchain.

awarded vote rewards –16 TRX per every block generated. Therefore, the total
an SR earns for generating a single block is 48 TRX coins (vote reward plus

on the thread suggested that an SR be removed from the list if they do not
produce a block within 24 hours.
