Why August 30th Is A Crucial Day for Tron (TRX)

The past few weeks since the Bitcoin (BTC) ETF was delayed by the SEC, has been a tumultuous one in the markets for all digital currencies. Our favorite digital asset of Tron (TRX), has also not been spared. TRX is currently valued at $0.20 at the moment of writing this and down 6% in the last 24 hours. This is despite the project having a successful Testnet launch; a successful Mainnet launch; a successful Beta version launch of the Tron Virtual machine; as well as a successful token swap that started back in June and concluded a few weeks ago.

As a matter of fact, it has been a period of continual decline for the TRX digital asset since early May when it was valued at $0.0973. The digital asset has since fallen 80% in 4 months. Primarily to blame is the general decline in the crypto-markets that has been fueled by a sea of bad news after bad news. First, there was the rejection of the Winklevoss ETF followed by the postponement of the CBOE sponsored Bitcoin ETF up until the 30th of September. If it were not for these events, TRX would be a top 5 coin by now due to the massive achievements in a 12 month period.

Also to note is that the Justin Sun and the Tron (TRX) foundation have recently acquired BitTorrent and BlockChain.Org to further their decentralization efforts. But all this would not mean much if the Mainnet is not 100% functional including supporting the creation of DApps.

Here is why the 30th of August is Critical for the Tron Project

On this day, the Tron Foundation completes the final upgrade on the Mainnet by integrating the final version of the Tron Virtual Machine. The currently working Virtual Machine is a test version for the developer world to test drive and find bugs as well as get a feel for the final version of how the virtual machine will work.

In a recent interview to the Crypto Lark on Youtube, Justin Sun is quoted as saying the following with respect to launching the final Virtual Machine version on the 30th of August:

“Actually…we are ready for the launch already. But we are doing a lot of the tests…like the pressure test…volume test…to make sure it works very well when we launch. Our Mainnet was already launched on the 25th of June, but right now we are building the Virtual Machine on the Mainnet. The Virtual Machine is [where developers] can develop very interesting Decentralized Applications, DApps, on the network.”

Therefore it is all systems go for the Tron Project on the 30th August with the final piece of the puzzle finally in place. This will mean that the Tron Mainnet will be able to migrate the 18 current Tron Dapps to the Mainnet. One such app – Peiwo – is estimated at having over 10 Million active users. The total number of users on the 18 DApps was once claimed to be 100 Million. This means that all these users will migrate to the Mainnet as soon as the final Virtual Machine is ready.

With more users on the Tron Mainnet, the demand and use of TRX will also increase as a result. This means that the only way is up for TRX in the markets once DApps start being developed on the Mainnet. The Sky is the Limit for the Tron project henceforth.

DGB Price Prediction For 2018 and Beyond

DGB price prediction

With the crypto market being constantly bearish throughout this year, a lot of investors are having second thoughts about buying additional coins. While some large cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum can be considered safe investments, smaller coins like Digibyte (DGB) often receive a lot of doubt. This is why the DGB price prediction is necessary so that the investors can know what to expect.

DGB Price Prediction

DGB has had its ups and downs throughout this year, and at some point, it even went up by 70%. However, the constant bear market affected it just as much as numerous other cryptos. This has brought its value down to its current $0.025378 per coin. Some optimistic predictions from earlier dates saw the coin reaching as high a price as $9.20 by the year’s end. However, as we approach the date, it seems less and less likely that this DGB price prediction will come true.

The coin is generally seen as a profitable investment. As it is always the case with cryptocurrencies, they should be bought when their prices are down, so that a profit could be made when they spike up once more. Digibyte is no different, but it should be noted that investing in this coin means having patience. DGB is not among the coins that will make you rich overnight, and instead, it should be seen as a long-term investment.

Even though 2018 has been as…

Back in mid-May, the Winklevoss Twins made the headlines for embracing ZCash (ZEC) as one of its major digital assets on their groundbreaking Gemini exchange. When the announcement was made, ZEC rallied in the market by showing a 45% increment in value. The coin made it to $357 in a matter of hours.

Further assessing the currently available digital assets on the Gemini platform, we find that the exchange currently has USD pairings for only Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum and ZEC. There is also additional pairings of ETH/BTC, ZEC/BTC and ZEC/ETH with plans to onboard Litecoin in the coming days.

Another thing to note is that the exchange also provides custodial services for institutional investors thus giving ZEC the much-needed exposure to the firms on Wall Street. Custodial services provide a guarantee that all digital assets on the platform are stored by a licensed entity thus extinguishing any cybersecurity concerns. For an entity to be licensed in New York for custodial services, the proper due diligence and research have been done.

Another thing that makes the Gemini exchange attractive and appealing to institutional investors, is that all USD deposits are insured by the FDIC. The latter entity is the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation that provides insurance for USD deposits in American banks. This means that once again, the funds of individual and institutional investors are safe and insured, further making…

Ripple XRP Mega Breakout: What’s Next?

Ripple XRP mega breakout

The Ripple XRP mega breakout that we were calling for happened and happened much quicker than anyone expected. As we said yesterday:

Nonetheless, IF, Ripple is capable of going ‘topside’ of the .38 figure at any point in the days/weeks ahead, such development, should it occur, would likely trigger its next advance into the .42 – .47 zone, representing a 30-40% move from present levels. On the flip-side, the .25 – .26 area should offer short-term potential support.

XRP is now sitting at .51704  as we write this article this morning, representing gains of 61% since we alerted our readers and our Global Elite email newsletter members.

Ripple XRP Mega Breakout

The Ripple XRP mega breakout is significant because it’s the first time XRP has been above its 50-day moving average since May. Right now, the RSI is approaching 80, so we are in overbought territory and we expect the price to consolidate around the .42 to .47 level before resuming its uptrend.

While some are looking at this as an opportunity to short XRP, we are not of that camp. While some can book some profits and use a trailing stop, any integration of XRP with xRapid has the ability to create a tremendous move in XRP. As Travis Kling said this week on the Off the Chain podcast with Anthony Pompliano, XRP could be the quickest five-bagger investors…
