Following the genesis mining, SUN token official mining will kick off at 23:00, September 16, 2020 (HKT).
Genesis Mining for SUN token commenced on September 2nd. During the genesis phase, TRX holder can lock up TRX to participate in Genesis Mining. At the end of genesis mining, all the funds will be returned through smart contracts with zero extra charge.

These pools will run for 14 days and the output of the SUN token is given as follows.

TRON Foundation will further announce new mining pools and schedules for mining.
As the official mining starts, daily SUN output across mining pools will drop by 10% from Genesis mining, down from 132000 to 117000 per day.
According to TRON Foundation, the launch of SUN/TRX, JST/TRX, and USDT/TRX LP mining will result in result in higher demand for SUN, TRX, and JST which will help boost the three markets. SUN token will benefit the most because of its currently small circulation.
The foundation further said:
“As SUN currently trades at $20 with a 100% APR, LP mining pools are expected to lock up over $864 million, 3.6 times higher than the total amount of TRX staked so far during Genesis mining (8,711,688,582.305 TRX). This indicates a bullish TRX market after Genesis mining ends on September 16, as instead of a big sell-off, more lock-up funds are expected to come.”
