What is Tron (TRX) crypto and why is it rising?

Tron, developed by the Tron Foundation, is a decentralized operating system based on blockchain technology. Launched in 2017, the TRX tokens were originally created as ERC-20-based tokens deployed on Ethereum, however, they shifted to their network after a year.

The project initially focused on offering full ownership rights to content creators. Its main focus is to help and encourage the digital content developers who generally make small income by rewarding them. Unlike YouTube, Facebook, etc., Tron claims to allow consumers to reward their content creators directly, without any intermediaries.
