Keeping cryptocurrencies safe after acquiring them is one of the most important parts of dealing with digital money. It is not something that you can just store in your pocket, which means that crypto users need to find another place to keep the coins safe. This is why crypto wallets were made.

Which is the best wallet for TRX?

If you are a TRON (TRX) enthusiast, or you are at least becoming one, you need to know how to best store your TRX coins in order to keep them safe. This is where wallets come in, and they all have their advantages and disadvantages, which is why it is important to know all the details connected to a specific wallet so that you can make the right choice.

Some would argue that you can always let your coins sit in the hot wallets offered by exchanges. However, this is as far from a perfect solution as you can get, considering that the exchanges can shut down, be hacked, or even block your account. The best solution would be for you to employ a cold, or semi-cold wallet.

To help you decide which wallet to go for, we have prepared a list of top 5 wallets that will accept your TRX coins, and keep them safe. Let’s begin.

1. MyEtherWallet

MyEtherWallet is a very well-known crypto wallet and one of the most commonly used ones as well. It allows users to completely avoid involving a third party by letting them secure their private key on their own computer. Users can access it via browser, or through various software developed to work with wallets.

MEW wallet is an open-source wallet that also comes with an exchange service that is already built into it. However, despite all of this, some of its users have reported that they have received phishing attacks. This ultimately leaves more than enough room for a security concern. Still, other than that, this is a great wallet for storing your tokens.

2. Ledger Nano S

Ledger Nano S is a hardware wallet, which is seen as one of the safest ways to store your cryptos. It is user-friendly and is as secure as a wallet can get. Not only that, but it accepts a very large number of cryptos, which means that your crypto of choice will probably be accepted. This, of course, includes TRON as well.

Another good thing about Ledger Nano S is that it is compatible with the previously mentioned MEW. All that it takes is to connect the ledger to a computer and exchange the tokens between the two wallets. This means that you can always store the majority of your coins on Ledger Nano, and keep those that you really need on MEW.

3. Trezor Wallet

Just like Ledger Nano S, Trezor is also a hardware wallet, and it works in the same way. This significantly reduces the differences between the two wallets and makes it hard to determine which one is better to use. Their cost is also pretty much the same, and you can find them for around €100. The biggest issue with this kind of wallets is that you need to pay to get them, but a small investment like this is definitely worthy of the top security for your TRX, or other coins.

4. Eidoo Wallet

Users who prefer to use their smartphones instead of computers are covered as well, and Eidoo Wallet is one of the best ways to go in this category. It can be used on both, iOS and Android devices, and it accepts various currencies. When it comes to the wallet’s private keys, they are completely encrypted, and will only be held on the user’s phone. This puts the user in complete control of the keys, which is a major advantage.

Eidoo Wallet is all about convenience, and even the transactions can be easily done from the smartphone. It is also user-friendly, with a clear and simple interface, which makes it easy to understand and use even for novices. The desktop version of the wallet has yet to come out, but the developers claim that they are working on it. The only issue with this wallet is security, which is a problem since phones are mostly easy to hack, especially if you use public networks to manage your coins and transactions on the go.

5. MetaMask

Finally, there is MetaMask, an online wallet based on Ethereum, which can be accessed via a browser. It comes as a simple extension, and it can be added to Mozilla Firefox, Opera, or Google Chrome. Its greatest strength is its convenience since it doesn’t require any extra software or hardware. A simple extension is all that is needed to access the wallet, but it still manages to have a tight grip on security. Your private key will be safely encrypted, but just as any other wallet, it is still not totally safe, which makes it good for storing small amounts of coins, but not all that you own.

In the end, hardware wallets are definitely the best when it comes to security, but they will require an initial investment. The online wallets are slightly more convenient, but they lack when it comes to safety. Phone wallets allow you to access your coins at any time, but phones can be hacked, which is, once again, a large security concern.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
