How time flies! Next year will bring with it a birthday cake and 10 candles when cryptocurrency celebrates its first decade on the planet.

And what an exciting & eventful period it’s been since the pioneer of digital money –Bitcoin- saw the first light of day in 2009.

Both crypto and its original understudy –blockchain- have become some of the hottest buzzwords over the past years. And each in their own right as the world came to realize increasingly that the technologies represent revolutionary solutions & opportunities for the Digital Age that we live in.

We further saw global exuberance, euphoria, skyrocketing crypto values and also, of course, extreme market volatility as mankind celebrated the coming of the new era with gusto. While at the same time regulators and governments around the globe had to come to grips with the choice of the people and introduce digital currency & blockchain into their frameworks.

Although the process is ongoing and likely to take a long time given the vast disruptive effect, it’s busy gaining massive momentum within the key economies. For instance, as Fortune magazine writes, in the U.S. State of Arizona, residents can already pay their taxes by means of certain cryptocurrencies.

While today there are more than 1,800 different digital currencies available in a market worth hundreds of billions of dollars. And after being around for almost ten years, it’s now time for crypto to start embracing the real business end of the deal.

“But why are we not seeing digital currencies used more on a daily basis?” I hear you ask. Exactly! There are several issues still hampering the easy everyday use of crypto.

Enter BlocPal, the most advanced way to pay, simplified!

Please continue reading to see what the current industry problems are and how BlocPal has arrived to revolutionize crypto payments. Also how you can become part of its success story now already as a proud owner of the BPX Coin.

Problem – cryptos are hard to spend & costly

Digital currency ticks all the boxes for being the greatest payment solution ever seen. Especially in our globalized & integrated world and during this, the Digital Age, where borderless convenience & immediacy has become the norm.

Yet, even though the crypto industry has achieved breathtaking growth & extraordinary technological advancement in a relatively short period of time, there are still several issues that prevent the massive and ever-increasing global community of keen cryptocurrency owners from using it as a regular payment method.

In an article titled, “Here’s why crypto isn’t accepted for more everyday transactions”, the popular financial and business news publication, Business Insider, wrote that by the end of 2016 there were already 11,291 retailers globally which accept crypto payments from customers. And for the year 2017 alone, that amount grew by more than 30% it says.

“At the same time, users have also warmed up to the idea: a recent survey found that 40% of people familiar with the digital currency would be open to using it in everyday transactions”, Business Insider continues.

The publication further lists the “main obstacles to using cryptocurrency for everyday transactions”, of which slow transaction times and high transaction fees are two of the major ones.

In terms of the former, “The average confirmation for Bitcoin takes about 20 minutes per transaction right now – but during past stretches of activity (such as in Jan 2018), it got as high as 41 hours”, Business Insider wrote at the time. And while processing times have improved further, even now -in the second half of 2018- it can still take several minutes for a simple crypto payment authorization to go through.

While, in terms of fees, months ago Bitcoin transactions cost $40 each, although it has reduced significantly since then, Business Insider wrote. But even at a cost of between US$5-10 per transaction in current times, crypto is still considered far too expensive for everyday payments.

But there is still great optimism while people around the globe are working relentlessly on crypto payment solutions, Business Insider continued.

“Crypto e-payments companies are constantly introducing new technologies and features that could potentially decrease transaction costs and provide instant settlements for retailers, while also eliminating the issue of fraudulent chargebacks. Making ground on these issues would make crypto significantly more appealing to the masses as a form of payment”, Business Insider concluded.

However, while echoing the optimism expressed in the preceding paragraph, it must be noted that the e-wallets that come as part-and-parcel of many cryptocurrencies today are still far too simplistic to holistically cover the payment needs of crypto users and merchants alike.

For instance, existing e-wallets are commonly not geared for 24/7 support, instant & guaranteed settlement, know-your-client (KYC) regulatory requirements and auto-invoice generation, to name but a few shortcomings.

3 Altcoins That Are Outperforming Bitcoin and Will Likely Face Consequences

The crypto market is going through a period of massive recovery in the past few months, which has caused the investors’ optimism to return. While all eyes are on Bitcoin (BTC), as usual, the largest coin seems to be struggling with a major resistance level at $8,000 at the moment. While this level was breached a few times now, every breach resulted in a correction.

At the time of writing, BTC is approaching this level yet again, with its current price being at $7,985,79, and rising further. The price managed to grow by 1.06% in the last 24 hours, and will undoubtedly hit $8,000 in a matter of hours, if not sooner.

However, while Bitcoin continues to remain volatile and struggles with waves of growth and decline, there are some altcoins that are not following its path. Of course, most of them are performing in pretty much the same manner as BTC, as they always had. But, a few coins have actually managed to outperform Bitcoin in recent months.

While optimists believe that this might lead to decoupling from Bitcoin — something that only Binance Coin (BNB) managed to pull off up to this point — it is likely that there will be consequences for these cryptos. This likely means that a price drop for these specific coins awaits somewhere in the near future, as outperforming BTC…

Why Binance May Be Crucial for Tron (Trx) to Reach $1

TRON

TRON (TRX) has been one of the most popular crypto projects in the past year. The coin has received a lot of attention from the entire crypto community, and although the impressions may differ —  the fact is that TRX is one of the most talked-about coins, even today.

However, while the project managed to achieve a lot in less than a year — launch its MainNet, start multiple massive projects, launch dozens of dApps, hundreds of smart contracts, its own DEX, new token, and more — its price remains quite low. Undoubtedly, one of the reasons for this is its massive supply. TRX circulating supply is over 66 billion coins, while the total supply is over 99 billion.

Even so, the coin is believed to be massively undervalued, with its current price sitting at $0.028129, according to TradingView. This price, together with a market cap of $1.88 billion, pushed the coin out of the list of top 10 largest cryptocurrencies, and it currently sits at 11th spot. But, many believe that this is not a permanent position for TRON. In fact, its community believes that it is only a matter of time before TRON rises through the ranks, and its price hits $1. And, the way for the coin to achieve this is believed to be through Binance.

Why Tron (TRX) Price Won’t Remain Low for Long

TRX

TRON (TRX) has been one of the most popular cryptocurrencies in recent years. The project has achieved a tremendous amount of success in less than a year, and while the first birthday of its MainNet is approaching, TRON certainly continues to impress to this day.

With that said, its price is still noticeably low, and many would agree that the project is heavily undervalued. The low price even allowed other projects to push it out of the top 10 list, with TRX currently being the 11th largest cryptocurrency by market cap. However, it is likely that TRON will not remain undervalued forever, and that its price might soon see a surge that its entire community has been waiting for, for a long time now.

Why TRX might see growth soon

As many undoubtedly know, TRON is a lot more than just a cryptocurrency. It has developed a massive ecosystem, which offers a development platform for coins, smart contracts, and dApps. It also acquired BitTorrent last year for its Project Atlas, which will allow torrent users to earn crypto through participation in content sharing.

For this purpose, it also launched BitTorrent (BTT) token, which saw its launch on January 28, 2019 on Binance Launchpad. This was dubbed the most successful ICO in history at the time, although several coins launched since then have broken its record.
