TRON (TRX) founder’s recent tweet indicates that even the mysterious creator of Bitcoin (BTC), Satoshi Nakamoto, might be willing to join in on Project Atlas.

Bitcoin’s creator predicted project Atlas

TRON’s (TRX) recent moves are seen by many as very futuristic, and Justin Sun, the TRON’s creator, has called a man ahead of his time more than once. However, even that doesn’t even begin to describe the brilliance of Sun’s recent move to fuse TRON’s technology with the recently acquired BitTorrent in order to improve the coin’s availability and expose it to a colossal number of users.

While many have seen this move as nothing than pure genius, it would seem that even the mysterious figure behind the creation of Bitcoin approves of it. In a recent tweet, Sun confirmed that Satoshi Nakamoto himself might be interested in joining the new Project Atlas. This is due to one of the statements left by Satoshi Nakamoto as far back as in 2008.

In the statement, Nakamoto said that, in order for PoW tokens to have value, they need to have monetary worth. To achieve monetary value, they have to use a large network as their means of transfer. And what network did Nakamoto propose as an example? That’s right – BitTorrent itself.

TRON enters a new era of development

When Justin Sun purchased BitTorrent for TRON a couple of weeks ago, many believed that there might be a big plan to use this technology to help advance TRON’s goals. Soon after, a secret TRON project was announced and kept hidden until only days ago, when TRON launched its Virtual Machine on July 30. Following the launch of Tron VM, the Tron Foundation revealed that the secret project is called Project Atlas, and it will use BitTorrent’s technology to bring TRON to 100 million users.

There are currently not that many details released regarding the project, but those are expected to come by the end of August 2018. What is currently known is that the combination of these technologies is supposed to increase the lifespan of BitTorrent swarms, as well as to bring additional features to BitTorrent protocol with the help of TRX’s own tech.

Additionally, the Foundation’s CEO and founder stated that TRX is now entering a completely new phase of ecosystem expansion.

This comes as only the latest one in the entire series of new developments that have been surrounding TRON in the last several weeks. The next big move that TRON is planning is setting up a new office in the territory of India.

Recently, Sun has moved his office in Beijing, but the plans did not stop there. Currently, TRON’s creator is planning a large expansion, with India being the first to get the honor of being a host to TRON’s new office. Hopefully, the Supreme Court of India will also make a decision regarding the fate of crypto exchanges within the country, which is something that a lot of crypto enthusiasts have been waiting for for a long time.

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…
