An overall market cap made Tron’s TRX altcoin drop by 4.44% in 24 hours, which brought it down to the market’s number ten position. TRX started on April 27 at $0.069 and then broke the psychological $0.1 barrier on April 30th. It went down a little right after that, and at the time I researched this article it was at $0.083, which is still a relevant increase in value.
As Tron’s Main Net migration becomes imminent (scheduled for May 31st), digital asset exchange platforms are continuing to support Tron; in return, increasing demand, and adding value. This even includes the May 25th virtual machine run.
Gate.io is (owned by Gate Technology Inc.) one of the world’s leading exchange platforms. They do business in 130 different countries, and the exchange very well known for being a simple and safe place to trade in Bitcoins. It’s been around since 2013, and, from its beginning, it’s been offering hundreds of high-quality blockchain products, trades, and exchanges the world over. And now, it is supporting Tron’s migration wholeheartedly.
The migration means that all of Tron will go from the ERC20 token to TRX. Justin Sun (Tron’s founder and CEO, who is already being hailed as the next Jack Ma, Alibaba‘s founder), is the man behind the plan. This migration has been criticized by some, especially by Vitalik Buterin, of Ethereum fame, but it must be noted that Mr. Buterin has a bone to pick because as Tron’s move attracts new investors, Ethereum will be the main loser.
Once Tron’s Main Net is deployed, Tron will be the world’s largest blockchain currency if we go by user base numbers. It will be just as big as Ethereum and Bitcoin, but it has the potential to become an even bigger ecosystem. It already has a hundred million users and support from some very relevant partners.
A cryptocurrency that’s getting support from such big players should get your attention. Tron’s currency is relatively new, but it’s fast, reliable and holds a lot of promise. Bitfinex also came out in Tron’s support last week.
Besides the migration, Tron announced an Ethereum airdrop last April 21st to show their support for the subjected currency community. As I write this article, 4% of Ethereum users have been included in the airdrop.
Right after that Tron increased mining fees in order to motivate collaborators to increase transaction speeds even further (and Tron’s coin is already among the fastest in the market).
The airdrop produced a lot of excitement among Twitter users. It’s happening, they have good reason to be excited.

Reasons Why 2019 May Be A Great Year For Crypto
The new year was always considered to be a time of new beginnings, where people can reflect on the past and learn from their mistakes in order to be better in the future. The same is true for the world of crypto, and investors around the world are hoping for 2019 to be better, more profitable, and to have more success than 2018.
The hope for the future is even more important when we consider all the negative development in 2018. There were numerous high-profile hacking attacks, two market crashes, with a strong bear market in between. Not to mention that some of the biggest projects that may have brightened the year a bit ended up being delayed.
With that in mind, it is understandable why investors are looking forward to the new year and all the potential development that it may bring. In fact, there are several reasons why they should be excited about 2019.
1) Bearish market to loosen its grip
The first reason why 2019 can be a good year digital currencies is that it may finally break free of the bearish grip that has been felt ever since last January. Following the first market crash, the bears settled in, and the prices kept falling for an entire year. The market attempted to shake off the negativity on several occasions, with the biggest one being…
3 Coins with the Largest Potential in 2019
2018 has been a pretty bad year for digital coins, and after the initial market crash that occurred a year ago, everyone was expecting a bull run that will fix things. Obviously, it never arrived, and instead of that, all that crypto market experienced was an entire bearish year and another crash in mid-November.
Now, however, it is a brand new year, and attempts to shake off the bears’ grip can be seen even in these first two weeks. The market is still struggling and mostly losing value, rather than gaining, with most coins being in trouble once more. Still, a lot can happen in a year, and most investors remain optimistic regarding 2019. Here are some of the coins that are believed to have tremendous potential, and to be the hope of this year.
Of course, Bitcoin comes first. This is the first cryptocurrency which is still dominating the market, with no other coin being even close to its market cap or price. BTC is the coin that has reached the most prominent heights, and it also lost the most in the previous year. However, there is still hope, as there are several projects and events scheduled for this year that might turn things around for the number one coin.
One thing that is expected is the approval of Bitcoin ETFs…
Do or Die: 3 Crypto Projects that Really Need to Deliver Soon
Crypto projects have gone through several crucial periods of development, and while it is fascinating to watch their progress to maturity, a lot of investors are becoming impatient. During the first few years, they were barely known, only talked about in specific groups, among those developers and investors who had the luck to find out about them in the early days.
The next several years, altcoins started appearing, and the voice of cryptocurrency slowly started to spread. Then, there was a period of hype, when crypto exploded, and the entire world finally learned about this new technology that promised to change the world. Naturally, the overhype led to a market crash and price correction that we experienced last year, but the impact was made, and the world is still talking about them on a daily basis.
However, now is the time for cryptos to deliver on their promise, grow up, and start showing results. There are high expectations for many projects, but for various reasons, they have yet to deliver, and many are hoping that 2019 will be the year when they finally do it. Let’s see which 3 crypto projects really need to show results, and soon.
1) Ethereum (ETH)
Are you surprised to see Ethereum at the first spot? The project has been a top cryptocurrency for years, why would it be in danger now?…
