Feng Li is one of the crypto-coin world main players and investors. He played a crucial role in funding Ripple‘s start in 2013 (and has a seat on the board of directors) by investing $32.9 million. But even before that, he was the very first investor to put money into Coinbase.
Now, according to recent rumors going on Reddit and Twitter, it could be the case that Mr. Li also is involved with Tron.
While this has not been confirmed at all yet, the mere possibility, given Mr. Li’s connections and experience in the alt-coin environment would make Tron’s credibility surge as it could get listed on Coinbase.
One among many Tron investors thrilled by the idea is Reddit user with the username Mlrtist, who wrote:
Twitter users are excited as well about the prospect:
The Coinbase Element
Coinbase is a digital currency exchange based in San Francisco, California. It boasts over thirteen million users. It trades all the big digital currencies in the market, and it’s earned a reputation for being the factor that can either make or break an alt-coin.
Litecon, for instance, went up by 57% just five days after Coinbase adopted it on May 3rd last year. It was even more spectacular for Bitcoin Cash, which surged by 300% in a single day. That’s exactly what Coinbase could do for Tron’s performance if it decides to include it which is why Mr. Feng Li’s ties to Tron (if they turn out to be real) could put it right there, playing with the big boys.
Tron is about to leave the Ethereum network by releasing their own TRX proprietary technology called Main Net. This is scheduled to happen by this month’s end. This event has been rising expectations and increasing the rumors for inclusion in Coinbase as Tron TRX becomes an autonomous currency.
Is there any actual evidence?
Well, not really. At least not right now. Mr. Li’s name is not listed anymore on the Tron website, and there is no information on the amount of money he came up with for Tron. Only his picture is still around, and it is on an address that’s linked to Tron.
Mr. Li’s information on social media sites like Linkedin or Crunchbase is also silent on the subject. But this lack of information only fuels further expectations and makes the rumor even more tantalizing.
Let’s be clear on something. This could all be hearsay in the end. But you should pay attention to the buzz because, if it’s true, it would surely make Tron one of the most successful coins available.

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…
