One of the biggest BitTorrent clients in the world, µtorrent, has just announced that it wants to bid for becoming TRON’s (TRX) Super Representative.
µTorrent joins TRON’s Super Representative election
Following the launch of its MainNet and token migration to their native blockchain, a cryptocurrency TRON (TRX) has started its Super Representative election. One of the biggest twists in the election was when TRON’s own founder, Justin Sun, decided to run and was elected a Super Representative in less than a day.
Now that the news about BitTorrent being a large factor in TRON’s Project Atlas has come out, another twist came from one of BitTorrent’s largest clients, µtorrent. In a new, surprising move, µtorrent announced that it will bid for a position of TRON’s Super Representative itself.
It's official. BitTorrent is now part of #TRON. We pioneered the world's largest decentralized p2p protocol, now we're joining forces with TRON to build the future of the decentralized internet. Read more at https://t.co/Jb8GwwRJf6. @Tronfoundation @justinsuntron pic.twitter.com/8eTH2evBUv

This election is an important event for TRON since it will decide the future governance of the crypto’s blockchain. Additionally, those elected to become Super Representatives will receive some unique benefits and privileges, not to mention the profits made from the DpoS algorithm.
All of the Super Representatives are elected by TRON token holders so that all potential power abuse and corruption will be effectively eliminated. Justin Sun has stated that the process has a large philosophical component and that it is a rather convenient solution. He added that he has always been a believer in the sovereignty of the people, as well as their rights. He has now transported those beliefs to his token, and each of them has a vital role to play in unlocking true decentralization. This is also where he announced his own candidacy for Super Representative.
Soon after that, on July 25, it was announced that µTorrent wants to do the same. The TRON Foundation stated that this BitTorrent client in particular shares the values and views of BitTorrent itself, which is also a candidate for the Super Representative.
TRX ‘secret project’ revealed
As mentioned previously, BitTorrent was recently purchased by TRON, and for a while, the reason behind the purchase was unknown. Then, only days ago, it was announced that BitTorrent is to be used with TRON in a new ‘secret project’, called project Atlas. BitTorrent’s large network will be used for improving TRON transactions and is expected to eventually give this coin a monetary value.
For now, Justin Sun continues his work on meeting the milestones announced by TRON’s roadmap, while attempting to improve the blockchain’s quality at the same time. One of the aspects of his leadership has also been his high level of interaction with TRON’s community. Thanks to his efforts on Twitter, TRON has developed one of the most supportive and popular communities in the entire crypto world.
As for the Super Representatives election, a significant number of places have already been filled. The elections will continue until all 27 Representatives have been chosen, and TRON will be able to continue to the next phase of its development.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
