The Tron community is undoubtedly taking every step possible in making sure that it does the best in the crypto world and takes the front seat. The progress TRX is making on a daily basis seems to be paying off well as it is attracting attention and for that reason, the trading activities on its decentralized exchange platform, DEX, are booming.
Tron (TRX) beats 100 million trading volume today
It has been merely a few days or so ago since DEX was discovered on Tronscan.org by Tron but the activities are ‘going crazy’ according to the blockchain firm’s founder and CEO Justin Sun. Initially, Tronscan.org DEX recorded around 25,513,713 TRX which only doubled in a day to about 57,957,467 TRX.
At that rate of increment, earlier today, it was noted today that it had reached 94 million TRX and Justin Sun seemed to be pretty sure that by today they will break the 100 million TRX mark. And guess what that has happened already.

This news has made several crypto enthusiasts believe that currently, Tron is in a league of its very own even with others overseeing it to overpass Ethereum sooner or later. And, it doesn’t seem that the 100m mark will be the last for Sun-led cryptocurrency firm as they aim to keep launching several tokens and projects on the platform. And of course, as Sun has set 500 million DEX trading volume as the next milestone for TRX.
As things stand, Tron is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon. Everyone is excited to see the next coins that would get added and several others were expecting something extra from the blockchain firm on hitting the 100 million trading volume mark.
Being able to keep featuring in the top crypto news platforms right from the beginning might have been the reason for the spike of its popularity. Nevertheless, several people have taken notice of good strides made by Tron, and now are investing in the TRX token which only means that its price will probably go to the moon. Of course, when the next crypto bull run comes, which looks a bit far from now after the recent crypto market fall.
Following this explosion of activities on the decentralized exchange platform, it’s evident that Tron is pushing the ladder high as shown by the rising trajectory on the value of the token over the past week (until yesterday market collapse happened).
The same is expected to continue as DEX keeps attracting more and more users, and of course, TRX keeps getting listed on other exchanges too. Whether Tron realizes its dream of becoming the best crypto is something that only time will tell, but currently it seems to be on the right path to achieving that milestone.

Will Bakkt Push Bitcoin into the Mainstream?
Bitcoin has been in a prolonged bear market for some time and has dropped as low as $8300 in recent weeks. This is the worst time for the cryptocurrency since prior to the bitcoin boom in 2017, and it has led to speculation that the original cryptocurrency could be on the decline. However, the digital asset may be about to bounce back. This could be thanks to Bakkt, the new digital asset platform which aims to provide a secure and well-monitored place for investors to trade bitcoin. Some analysts are even suggesting that this could lead bitcoin into the mainstream.
Bitcoin has been teetering on the edge of the mainstream for some time now, with various companies accepting payments in the digital currency. The reason why it hasn’t yet taken off is that it doesn’t have enough practical applications to encourage the everyday person to start using it. But the market is there for alternative payments, and this is particularly apparent in the online casino industry when new sites crop up. For example, Johnny Jackpot is a smashing new casino brand that accepts a number of payment systems including Neteller, Skrill, and Paysafecard. Global customers want to be able to use options like these which were designed for the internet.
The problem with all of the aforementioned systems…
