In recent days, Tron (TRX) has been experiencing one of the biggest tractions of the market, a fact that without a doubt is helping the token to appear strongly in the crypto environment. However, when it comes to crypto enthusiasts, many are kind of obsessed with the coin, and on the other hand, many are just not that excited or don’t see the future of it that bright.
In this sense, much has been said regarding would it be or not a possibility for Tron to surpass the top 10 mark and obtain a better performance in the coming months of the year. Regarding this, there are solid reasons to believe that if everything continues the way that is going as of now, Tron (TRX) will become a top 5 crypto this year, and will regain momentum in the months to come. Let’s see how it goes.
What was Tron (TRX) created for?
Starting from scratch, Tron (TRX) is a blockchain platform created by Justin Sun with the intention of providing a fully decentralized space for the entertainment industry. In this matter, what Tron envisions is to become a more accessible platform where the content moves freely, which means that artist and content creators are given a chance to publish their content without the need of a third-party network such as Youtube, Facebook, and such.
The coin is harshly one of the youngest in the sector, and in just a short period of time, it has managed to become the 9th largest cryptocurrency in existence, with a trading volume at the moment of writing of $168,396,000. In addition, Tron (TRX) has achieved to appear listed in more than 30 crypto exchanges in the world, and more than 100 trading pairs are offered for the token holders.
Advantages that Tron brings to the table
Tron (TRX) uses one of the most advanced technologies in the cryptosphere, and this is something that has granted the crypto with a variety of advantages against other coins in the market.
For starters, the TPOS algorithm makes possible for Tron (TRX) to perform transactions faster than many other tokens in the sector, including Ethereum (ETH). The same way, because of the bandwidth system that is applied to transactions, TRX is almost free of fee charges, which is an incredible advantage compared to others.
Furthermore, the token has recently launched its own virtual machine on May 25th (the testing phase and migration are just about to get done) and is a pioneer in the industry with respect to reward programs and features.
An influential founder
One of the masterpieces of the TRX token is undoubtedly its founder, the businessman, Justin Sun. The entrepreneur is one of the most influential figures in the financial industry, who is even expected to beat his old mentor, the CEO and founder of the giant retailer, Alibaba.

Sun has managed to make his own name in the industry, and besides being the head behind the TRX token, he has collaborated with other companies of the sector and owns its own version of a social network in China. He was formerly the Chief Representative of the third largest cryptocurrency, Ripple (XRP), and parallel to that runs his own social network, Peiwo.
MainNet Launch and TRX migration
Tron (TRX) was initially based on the ERC-20 protocol of Ethereum. However, this year the token has started its migration to its own blockchain, a movement that began back on March 31st when the Testnet was launched. The results with this launch were highly astonishing; in fact, the crypto started to climb in the charts by gaining a remarkable momentum.
A little later, specifically in April, the coin started a bearish move, which was mainly originated by the banning activity in the social network, Facebook. It was expected that after the Mainnet launch at the end of May this event would be overpassed, but unfortunately, it also matched with the general dip of the sector.
But now, the migration of the TRX tokens based on Ethereum is just about to finish, and as the users settle on its MainNet, Odyssey, without reporting any issues in coming few days, the token is expected to regain its momentum.
Fiat pairs and listings
One of the strategies TRX has deployed in order to overcome the recent bearish performances is working on different relationships with influential organizations of the sector. Like this, it has managed to partner with at least 30 different exchanges including OKEx, Bithumb, Binance, Upbit, Coinegg, Bit-Z, Coinflip, and the most recent one, Coindelta.
In addition, the coin has added liquidity to its token by offering fiat trading options such as TRX/USDT, an initiative that seeks to decouple Tron (TRX) from BTC while trading with the coin.
Tron is giving the most solid steps in order to continue its climbing in the industry. With all the partnering activity, the liquidity injected to the coin, and the developments the company is doing, one of the most certain things to happen in the short term is that the token reaches its ambitioned top 5 status.

And Tron’s Super Representatives’ move is worth noting too. But, as of now, nothing guarantees that the coin will join top 5 cryptos list, it will majorly depend on how the new MainNet of Tron works out and how well the company keeps pushing forward. So stay tuned!

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…
TokenRoll (TKR) Platform Will Take Online Casinos to the Next Level
Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world. Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon. This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs. 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…
