Cryptocurrencies had been losing value just about a couple of weeks ago. Some of them even lost more than half their worth. A bit of panic had been going on. As news of Tether’s trouble with the authorities became public things became worse.
Is there an alt-coin that has been doing well in this hostile environment constantly? Yes. It’s called Tron (TRX). Even though China hasn’t popped up as the significant advocate of cryptocurrencies (they plan to create their very own, on the other side), but Tron’s usefulness probably has turned the country to add some ‘exception’ filters regarding cryptos. Tron has this connection with China, that’s probably what makes it a stable coin that could be a good bet in the long term. I’ll tell you why.
Tron’s CEO and Jack Ma
You should know by now that Jack Ma is the man behind Alibaba. He’s been known to support his former collaborators and/or former students. Here’s the kicker: Tron’s CEO, Justin Sun, is a former Jack Ma’s student and co-worker. It means that Alibaba’s power could soon support Tron’s efforts.
This piece of info is not that meaningful in terms of objective data. But if Mr. Ma decides to support Tron with all of Alibaba’s might, that could change the game for everybody. Just keep an observing eye on the market. That won’t just be about money, it will be about being viable in China. How do you beat that? Neo and Vechain seem to be also doing well under China’s government. But Tron could do just better. Keep watching.
Tron’s services are a great match for the Chinese market
Tron is not your standard cryptocurrency. They aim to become a means to decentralize web content. They believe every content creator should be in control of their own content.
Yes, the creators, not the corporations. This means that Tron’s users will not just be coin enthusiasts but content creators in the 18-35 demographic. You should keep in mind that Tron is playing the crypto game, but they are going after a different market as well (and they’re getting it). They want a free web.
China alone has 400 million users who have this profile. Which is why it’s a huge market for Tron and also why China could make Tron go all the way to the moon. In fact, if you consider the Chinese market alone, you could argue that Tron is undervalued at the present time. Which is a good reason to just go for it.
What’s good for Tron is good for China
No, we’re not exaggerating. China is one of the world’s biggest markets and Tron is intimately linked to China (and this connection will be even bigger if Mr. Jack Ma comes in support of Tron, as it’s expected). Tron’s interests are aligned with China’s.
If you do a bit of research you’ll find that China prefers to support those firms that give power to the Chinese people instead of multinationals. The crypto world has a name for that. It’s called Tron.
Tron will essentially get the content market away from Apple and Google and make it independent. This is in China’s interests and it will make the Tron’s coin a reliable and stable digital asset. It will make it work in the long-term.
Tron is good for China and vice-versa. This connection alone could make Tron explode this year, and way beyond. Keep an eye on it. Buy some Tron tokens while they’re cheap.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.
He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
Mr. Yamagata has been…
