The team at Bytecoin (BCN) had realized a need to communicate with the fans and HODLers of the coin and answer some questions by the community to clarify the progress of the project. It is with this acknowledgment that the team held an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit that concluded on the 16th of this month. In the AMA, lots of questions were asked with respect to the coin, the road-map and other issues that were concerning the community. The AMA was successful and had the following questions answered.

Many in the Bytecoin community have been wondering if the coin and project was a pump and dump affair; especially after the debacle that happened when the coin was added on Binance on the 8th of May. With respect to this event, the Bytecoin team responded by saying that they have no control over what direction the price of the coin takes. All they can control is the underlying software of the coin. They also added that Binance never gave them information on a time of the listing as earlier assumed by the community.

Also of concern to the community, was the issue of BCN debit cards and an updated roadmap. The team at Bytecoin was able to elaborate that the debit card project has had some setbacks and they will be updating the community as soon as they have news. With respect to the road-map, the team requested for patience as updates will be available soon.

The project has also been experiencing issues with the WebWallet. The team has been tirelessly working on solving issues of 2FA (two-factor authentication) and refunds. They promised to find a solution and recommended the desktop version of the BCN wallet for use as these issues were sorted.

With respect to partnerships and listings on exchanges, the team also promised good news with time. They are currently working on some partnerships and increasing the coin’s visibility in the markets by having it listed in more exchanges.

Last but not least, in terms of the questions asked, was the rescheduling of the hard-fork. The team explained that hard-forks are usually complex in terms of the technicalities involved and will be updated on when the event will happen. The BCN hard-fork is meant to simplify the code, improve P2P protocol and introduce dynamic fees.

More with respect to the AMA can be found on Reddit where the team gives more detailed responses to the community’s concerns.

Current market analysis of Bytecoin (BCN) indicates that it has decreased by 7.35% in 24 hours and is currently trading at $0.008648 at the moment of writing this. The general feel of the market is of a slight decline with Bitcoin (BTC) currently trading at $8,339 and down 2.13% in the last 24 hours.

A matter of time before TRON (TRX) achieves mass adoption

TRON

Tron (TRX) has all its eyes on decentralizing the internet, or rather content-sharing to ensure that creatives, artists, musicians, and authors can all release their content without the need of middle companies. As it seems, Tron’s founder hopes that the coin will challenge the globe’s major content providers like Facebook and YouTube.

The coin has undoubtedly made progress since its launch from a coin offering on the Ethereum ledger platform to now a native coin present on the official Tron Mainnet. If you think launching the independent MainNet is all Tron wanted to achieve, you are mistaken.

The aim is towards mass adoption as well as creating a decentralized web. Yeah, it is a  fact that in the past weeks TRX has experienced price declines, but currently, the cryptocurrency is riding 5.37% hike against the USD in the last 24 hours (remember most of the other top coins including Bitcoin are in red).

It’s also continued succeeding in attaining quality listings such as the Bittrex (to name one of the most recent ones). Therefore, it seems as every step TRON makes is a sign of progress to make the decentralized web a reality.

How TRON (TRX) is Making Mass Adoption a Reality

The primary objective for TRON (TRX) is to create a decentralized web which will be a representation of the internet’s next generation. Therefore, in making that a reality, the largest file-sharing platform, BitTorrent that has over 100M global…

Hyperion and Stellar: A new partnership

According to a recent announcement by Global Blockchain Technologies Corp., it would seem that the known crypto exchange Hyperion has finally made an agreement with Stellar (XLM). The new partnership is to allow Stellar’s own crypto assets to be traded on Hyperion’s platform. This move is expected to significantly impact Stellar’s price and spread awareness of the coin and its goal even further.

Hyperion uses an alternative trading system (ATS), which was licensed by the SEC. As a part of this arrangement, previously attained via investment in DBOT (Delaware Board of Trade), Hyperion has permission to also operate as a broker-dealer. It is also expected to become North America’s first advanced security token exchange.

As many are already aware of, Stellar is a trading protocol that is used for issuing, exchanging, and transferring digital assets. It works with several other cryptocurrencies, but also with fiat currencies like the USD. Additionally, Stellar also works even with some commodity assets, like gold.

Stellar’s goal is similar to that of Ripple, at least when it comes to enabling faster and better cross-border transactions. While Ripple focuses on providing its services to banks and financial institutions, Stellar aims to provide these services to individual investors. Thanks to this, Stellar has received a lot of attention and praise from individual investors, as the general interest in cryptocurrencies grew.

Why is this partnership important?

After more than half a year of price drops and losses in value, Bitcoin’s price has finally demonstrated signs of stability. For weeks, Bitcoin managed to remain above the price of $6,550 per coin, which was followed by a small price surge that has allowed the coin to reach $6,600.

Not only that, but Bitcoin’s volume also saw a 12% increase that has taken it from $3.2 billion to $3.6 billion according to CoinMarketCap. While this state of the market did not include all the altcoins, with some of them even experiencing losses, the situation regarding Bitcoin did look promising.

However, the new situation has changed that, as both investors and analysts woke up to the news of crypto prices going down.

Bitcoin volume predictions

Cryptocurrency analysts around the world have been predicting that the recently-balanced situation regarding Bitcoin and many altcoins will not last. While some believed that Bitcoin volume will go up, others have been claiming that it will drop once again, as it has finally happened.

At the moment, Bitcoin has managed to drop below what was recently believed to be its bottom, with a new price being at $6,297. Instead of reaching milestones such as $6,800, and then $7,000 mark as many have hoped, BTC actually dropped by around 6%.

For a while, Bitcoin has been showing signs that it is ready to grow once more. However, the trouble once again lies with the…
