TRON TRX continues to make new victories, with the latest one being a huge step towards mainstream usage. The new development has seen TRON become a new addition to the Bitcoin Superstore, and it was entirely community-inspired.

TRON (TRX) now on Bitcoin Superstore

TRON TRX is a cryptocurrency that needs no introduction. While the coin has dropped on the CoinMarketCap’s list once more, and it currently holds the 14th place, it is still one of the most popular cryptos today. Now, its popularity is bound to grow even more, after the coin got chosen to join the Bitcoin Superstore, and become a new legitimate payment method for over 200,000 stores.

A lot of effort went into making cryptos usable in the real world lately, which is a big indication that digital currencies are finally ready to be used, and not just trade. This is one of the reasons behind Bitcoin Superstore’s sole existence. Over time, the store entered partnerships with more than 200,000 stores around the world, and all cryptos that Bitcoin Superstore supports can now be used for making purchases in all of these stores at any time.

The Superstore is still open to new coins, which is why they asked their users which crypto should be adopted next. This has led to a huge amount of support for TRON (TRX), and the Superstore delivered. Now, TRON has joined the likes of BTC, BCH, ETH, XRP, and LTC.

What does this mean for TRON?

As a part of the Bitcoin Superstore, TRON TRX has received a huge new use case. So far, its goal was to transform and revolutionize the entertainment industry. While it put a lot of effort into this goal, it still only made small steps, despite the fact that it entered a lot of partnerships.

Now, however, TRON TRX will become an accepted method of payment that will allow the purchase of goods in over 200,000 individual stores. This will even include Amazon, and all that the user needs to do is to log onto the Superstore and paste the URL of the desired item into the appropriate box. Then, they should enter the shipping details, and choose the crypto they wish to pay with. The rest is taken care of by the Superstore itself.

According to the Superstore’s announcement, the customers of the service can order goods from Google Express, Amazon, and even an online version of Walmart. Any retailer that has an online presence, and doesn’t charge membership fees will likely be available on Bitcoin Superstore, and the service’s team will make sure that all transactions and deliveries go smoothly. Of course, the service itself will charge a small fee, at around 2%.

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.

KaratGold Background

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…

In the hyper-competitive world of online casinos, operators are always looking for ways to stand out from the crowd. The most usual methods include using distinctive branding, offering generous bonuses and making sure that they are on all of the major so-called affiliate sites where players can compare and contrast casinos’ different offerings.

But now a whole new generation of casinos are starting to emerge – ones whose key difference isn’t what and how you play, but more in how you pay.

The rise and rise of the cryptocurrency casino is seen by many as the next logical step in a world that is slowly but surely starting to accept that Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, et al. are certainly here to stay.

Of course, it’s the first of these cryptocurrencies that has really grabbed the headlines and led the way with its meteoric performance in 2017 when it seemed like its $20,000 value was just the start of the story. Admittedly, this was short-lived and the value quickly fell back to a more sustainable level but, if it achieved one thing, it was to cement this exciting new kind of currency in the consciousness of the general public.

Why Bitcoin and online casinos are the perfect partners

In many ways, it’s the perfect partnership between Bitcoin and online casinos with multiple benefits for both.

The first of…
