All willing users can apply to become Super Representatives, but to prevent malicious attacks, we have set up a threshold for admittance — to run for Super Representative, 9999 TRX in the applicants’ account will be burnt. After successful application, users can run for Super Representatives.

Step 1: Open TRON Blockchain explorer and sign in to your account.

Step 2: Click “Account” button.

Step 3: Click “APPLY TO BE A SUPER REPRESENTATIVE CANDIDATE” button.

Step 4: Write your personal website address and check the information below website address. Click “SUBMIT” to complete the operation.

Note: 9999 TRX will be paid when users apply to be a SR candidate.

Publish your information on TRONSCAN

TRONSCAN provides a way for Super Representatives to publish their information right where the voters are, on TRONSCAN!

Super Representatives can use this template to build a static page which will be shown on TRONSCAN. The link will be placed in the voting overview page right next to the name of SR.

The Super Representatives can manage their own content by editing files in the Github repository.

This guide assumes that you already have an account with Super Representative (candidate) status.

Step 1: Copy/Fork the Template on Github.

・Go to https://github.com/tronscan/tronsr-template
・Fork the repository

After forking the repository you will be navigated to your own tronsr-template version of the repository where you can make changes.

Step 2: Fill in the Template.

The template can now be modified by editing files on Github.

・Open edit mode

・Add some information to the file

Files are written in markdown format. An excellent intro can be found at https://guides.github.com/features/mastering-markdown/

After you filled in the template it can now be published on https://tronscan.org
