Cardano (ADA) Proposes a Partnership with TRON (TRX)

The entire crypto community, and especially TRON (TRX) and Cardano (ADA) enthusiasts were left completely speechless a few days ago when ADA’s co-founder proposed a cooperation between ADA and TRX. TRON did not immediately accept the proposal but has promised to look into it.

Charles Hoskinson makes an unexpected proposal

Despite the large shifts in the crypto market, that have mostly been negative towards the current situation of most cryptocurrencies, some of them still manage to advance. TRON (TRX) and Cardano (ADA) are among the few coins that are continuing to improve and score on business partnerships almost every other day. Because of this, most have seen them as rivals, which is why nobody saw Cardano’s proposal to TRON coming.

A few days ago, on June 25, Cardano’s co-founder, Charles Hoskinson, has made an unexpected move when he posted a tweet in which he addresses TRON’s founder, Justin Sun. Many were expecting to find some sort of TRON-bashing, which is why they were left speechless when Hoskinson wrote what it seems to be a legitimate business proposal between the coins.

The proposal was confusing, to say the least, and not many people dared to believe it at first. If true, many thought that this would have been an amazing opportunity to establish a strong partnership between the two. Not only would it be beneficial for both coins when it comes to stability, strength, and support, but would also help all crypto, since it would be a major step towards global adoption.

To combat the skepticism, Charles Hoskinson even confirmed that this is not irony and that he is completely serious. According to him, TRON’s use of Ethereum Java is holding this coin back, and Hoskinson has offered TRX to start using Cardano’s Mantis client. Mantis, according to Hoskinson, offers a much better code, security, as well as a DPoS-style protocol.

Sun doesn’t say no, but still doesn’t give an official response

Considering that TRON is currently still in the process of achieving total independence from Ethereum, this would allow it to make that extra step and completely turn its back to Ethereum’s network. Sun responded two days later, on June 27. He stated in a tweet that TRON is on its way to create the best possible blockchain and that the team will look into what Mantis has to offer.

Crypto experts and enthusiasts were basically holding their breath during this entire correspondence, wondering what will happen and how it might influence both cryptos. The idea itself was received with a lot of hype, and many see the benefits of such a partnership.

Both coins received support on social networks, Twitter especially. Others speculated what this might mean and whether or not will TRON actually accepts the partnership on Reddit. The strongest opinion is that agreeing to use Mantis would be the best possible decision by TRON at this point.

Mantis would allow TRON much more space and exposure, and through its use, it might finally be able to fully rival Ethereum. Still, it would appear that Sun is still thinking this idea over since no official statement has yet been released. The fact that TRON did not refuse is definitely reassuring, but both communities are anxious to hear the final verdict.

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…

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…
