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.

DGB Price Prediction For 2018 and Beyond

DGB price prediction

With the crypto market being constantly bearish throughout this year, a lot of investors are having second thoughts about buying additional coins. While some large cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum can be considered safe investments, smaller coins like Digibyte (DGB) often receive a lot of doubt. This is why the DGB price prediction is necessary so that the investors can know what to expect.

DGB Price Prediction

DGB has had its ups and downs throughout this year, and at some point, it even went up by 70%. However, the constant bear market affected it just as much as numerous other cryptos. This has brought its value down to its current $0.025378 per coin. Some optimistic predictions from earlier dates saw the coin reaching as high a price as $9.20 by the year’s end. However, as we approach the date, it seems less and less likely that this DGB price prediction will come true.

The coin is generally seen as a profitable investment. As it is always the case with cryptocurrencies, they should be bought when their prices are down, so that a profit could be made when they spike up once more. Digibyte is no different, but it should be noted that investing in this coin means having patience. DGB is not among the coins that will make you rich overnight, and instead, it should be seen as a long-term investment.

Even though 2018 has been as…

Why ZCash (ZEC) Is Heading to $10k

Back in mid-May, the Winklevoss Twins made the headlines for embracing ZCash (ZEC) as one of its major digital assets on their groundbreaking Gemini exchange. When the announcement was made, ZEC rallied in the market by showing a 45% increment in value. The coin made it to $357 in a matter of hours.

Further assessing the currently available digital assets on the Gemini platform, we find that the exchange currently has USD pairings for only Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum and ZEC. There is also additional pairings of ETH/BTC, ZEC/BTC and ZEC/ETH with plans to onboard Litecoin in the coming days.

Another thing to note is that the exchange also provides custodial services for institutional investors thus giving ZEC the much-needed exposure to the firms on Wall Street. Custodial services provide a guarantee that all digital assets on the platform are stored by a licensed entity thus extinguishing any cybersecurity concerns. For an entity to be licensed in New York for custodial services, the proper due diligence and research have been done.

Another thing that makes the Gemini exchange attractive and appealing to institutional investors, is that all USD deposits are insured by the FDIC. The latter entity is the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation that provides insurance for USD deposits in American banks. This means that once again, the funds of individual and institutional investors are safe and insured, further making…

Ripple XRP Mega Breakout: What’s Next?

Ripple XRP mega breakout

The Ripple XRP mega breakout that we were calling for happened and happened much quicker than anyone expected. As we said yesterday:

Nonetheless, IF, Ripple is capable of going ‘topside’ of the .38 figure at any point in the days/weeks ahead, such development, should it occur, would likely trigger its next advance into the .42 – .47 zone, representing a 30-40% move from present levels. On the flip-side, the .25 – .26 area should offer short-term potential support.

XRP is now sitting at .51704  as we write this article this morning, representing gains of 61% since we alerted our readers and our Global Elite email newsletter members.

Ripple XRP Mega Breakout

The Ripple XRP mega breakout is significant because it’s the first time XRP has been above its 50-day moving average since May. Right now, the RSI is approaching 80, so we are in overbought territory and we expect the price to consolidate around the .42 to .47 level before resuming its uptrend.

While some are looking at this as an opportunity to short XRP, we are not of that camp. While some can book some profits and use a trailing stop, any integration of XRP with xRapid has the ability to create a tremendous move in XRP. As Travis Kling said this week on the Off the Chain podcast with Anthony Pompliano, XRP could be the quickest five-bagger investors…
