Taking a deep look at Tron (TRX) and Ripple (XRP), you will realize that both of them are rivals in the crypto-market today. Recently, Tron (TRX) launched its own MainNet and it got listed in Indonesia’s biggest cryptocurrency exchange platform and as a result of the launch of MainNet, the cryptocurrency is increasingly becoming a threat to other digital currencies including Ethereum.
This is just the icing on the cake, but comparing and taking a bite at each other instead of moving forward might be not in the best interest for the both of them. Nevertheless, if you look at both cryptocurrencies you would discover that they both work to achieve the same goal and that is to get more users to adopt their blockchain technology. For this reason, we are safe to compare these two cryptos and know which of them will attract more investors to their blockchain technology.
Does Ripple (XRP) Have an Edge Over Tron (TRX) Now?
As it stands, Ripple is doing quite well in the market today but it is very difficult to ascertain which of them is better than the other. There haven’t been any public broadcast saying one is better than the other; this is another reason why the comparison of both cryptos need more facts to be added in the study in order to determine which of them, Ripple (XRP) or Tron (TRX) has more hegemony than the other.
To begin with, we are safe to say that Ripple (XRP) is doing very great, due to the fact that it is attaining the goal that has been set by the Ripple Foundation in order to improve the future of their blockchain technology as a well as the main goal of acquiring many users to adopt its blockchain technology.
Furthermore, the Ripple Foundation is more poised in becoming forefront among big financial banks around the world today and this is also the same as Tron. Its major stride this year (so far) is its partnership with Santander, Western Union, and MoneyGram and it is surely a major boost when considering the analysis between these two major cryptos. Indeed, we should not forget that Ripple is the third largest cryptocurrency in the market, too.
Its partnership with Santander paved way for the creation of OpenPay FX which is the first mobile app for cross-border payments. The creation of OpenFX by Santander couldn’t be achieved without the use of Ripple’s blockchain technology. Right now, Santander users in Europe and every part of the world can be able to make cross-border payments to any part of the world much easier. It is essential to know that this application, OpenFX, is secure, fast, and efficient.
With these strides, we can easily conclude that Ripple is moving at a faster pace than its counterpart; meanwhile, it constantly surprises the media with exciting news. At the same time, its Ripple Foundation is keeping track in ensuring that it constantly has more user to adopt its technology on a daily basis. Just recently, Brad Garlinghouse, Ripple CEO, hinted many banks would adopt Ripple (XRP) as 2018 ends.
Although there are certain faults on Ripple’s end and that its decentralized system as this is creating more fears among its investors. Besides, there have also been some complaints on Ripple on controlling its currency, XRP, judiciously and the currency is usually being omitted in its protocols such as xCurrent and xVia.
Nevertheless, Ripple Foundation is shrewdly taking care of both Ripple and XRP but it does it in an unusual way employing a different strategy. All in all, we can say Ripple (XRP) stills leads Tron here.
Is Tron Advancing Quicker Than Ripple?
Although Ripple has an edge over Tron in the sense that it was launched much earlier than Tron; but Tron is keeping up with the pace and it is emerging as one of the best digital coins in the world today. Earlier this year, Justin Sun stated his plans (or we can say his dream) to make TRX one of the biggest cryptos in the market, this plan is being actualized daily.
However, the evidence of the plans becoming actualized is in the launch of MainNet, which means that Tron (TRX) doesn’t need the technology of Ethereum to operate anymore. Although, Justin Sun has never come out publically to challenge Ripple or other cryptocurrencies as it seems both Ripple and Tron are working on the goal of introducing as many people as possible to embrace their individual blockchain technology.
Even though Ripple has achieved many strides with major financial institutions all over the world, Tron, on the other hand, has taken much interest In the entertainment industry in making sure that the industry makes use of its blockchain technology for its operations.
Additionally, with the latest achievement in launching its MainNet and a careful thought of designing its cryptocurrency before its initial coin offering has enabled Tron to look like some of Ripple’s features. More than 70 crypto exchanges listing the Tron already is yet another thing that entitles Tron (Tron) for all the fondness.
Nevertheless, with Tron’s strides, it may outdo Ripple in the cryptocurrency market, whereas Coinbase might decide who the leading cryptocurrency is, but they have been many predictions and stakes on who will win. For now, we just need to keep our fingers crossed and see what happens at the end since both cryptocurrencies are achieving great feats every day.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes
While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.
During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.
Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.
1. True ownership of your coins
The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges…
Crypto Billionaire Predicts Massive Price Growth by 2021
Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.
Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.
He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.
However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.

One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos. TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.
Problems with Centralized Casinos
The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model. And online casinos are no different. It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling. The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative. But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.
A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:
- Little to no transparency
- Consumer lack of confidence
- Privacy concerns
- 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals
These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market. Casinos need to…
