Ever since cryptocurrencies exploded as a trend back in late 2017, numerous new altcoins started emerging on the market. While some of them disappeared very quickly, many still managed to survive. However, not a lot of them can say that they are making as much progress as GoChain (GO).
GoChain is a very young coin and has only been a part of the crypto world for a few months. However, during that time, it achieved a lot, and it is currently among the most popular coins to talk about.
GoChain was launched in May 2018, which was a peculiar period, when even the top cryptocurrencies had a difficult time staying relevant. The last thing that anyone expected was that a new altcoin will appear during this time, and its chances of surviving it were slim, at best. However, GoChain managed it, and since then, it only picked up the pace.
Its rise to popularity started with a mission of reaching as many big digital currency exchanges as possible. So far, it managed to reach Bittrex, Upbit, Binance, KuCoin, and Bilaxy. While it still has no trading pairs against the USD or any other fiat currency, it can still be bought via Bitcoin or Ethereum.
Its total supply is a bit over 1 billion coins, while only 625,412,261 GO is currently in circulation. However, GoChain remains highly popular, with a trading volume of nearly $40 million in the last 24 hours.
GoChain: Winner of Binance’s Coin of the Month contest
In recent days, GoChain started experiencing a significant price surge, which has brought double-digit gains. Its current price is $0.068145, with a 14.18% increase in the last 24 hours. While this is still not enough for GoChain to enter the top 100 largest coins by market cap, investors remain optimistic, believing that it will get there eventually. At the time of writing, GoChain is ranked as a 125th largest coin on CoinMarketCap.
The new price surge is believed to be inspired by the fact that GO managed to win Binance’s competition. Each month, Binance reviews multiple unlisted coins, and if one of them satisfies certain criteria, the coin gains free listing. It appears that Binance was impressed with GoChain, as it chose it as a winner last month.
As a result, GO attracted a lot more attention, and its community continues to grow. In a recent Tweet, GoChain announced that their Telegram community now counts 10,000 real members.
We want to thank the community for helping us reach a milestone over on telegram! We now have 10,000 real members over there! RT & share with your friends to help us continue growing the community! 😁🎉 https://t.co/olljGfBg0T pic.twitter.com/wORasBWt0u

Following the Binance listing, GoChain’s value increased by over 40%. Many expected that this development might trigger a bull run, although now it would seem that this is unlikely to happen. Regardless, GO is still growing in value, with a current increase of 14%. This is still noteworthy, considering that most of the other cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin included, are currently experiencing losses.

Lite.IM Dethrones Facebook After Integrating Crypto Wallet With Popular Messaging Platforms
With the crypto markets in turmoil, especially after news about a potential hack at Cryptopia, traders and investors need to turn their attention away from day trading. Instead, crypto traders really need to think long-term and identify projects that are sure to win in the long-term. In particular, one crypto company is making major headlines after winning an all-important technology battle against the mighty Facebook. That company is Zulu Republic (ZTX).
Zulu Republic Develops Lite.IM
Zulu Republic is an ecosystem of blockchain tools and platforms, designed as a place where people, businesses, and organizations can thrive on their own terms. And indeed, Zulu Republic has hit a grand slam with their development of Lite.IM.
Lite.IM is a crypto wallet that has been integrated with several of the most popular messaging platforms such as Facebook Messenger and Telegram. In addition, users in the U.S. and Canada can also exchange and manage crypto balances through SMS. Although not all cryptocurrencies are available, the team has selected four of the most popular currencies which include Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin (BTC), and the native currency of Zulu Republic (ZTX).
Telegram and Facebook Messenger are extremely popular platforms. But, potentially even more exciting news, is that the Lite.IM team plan to announce WhatsApp integration in the next 1-2 weeks. There is a reason why Facebook acquired WhatsApp in 2014, for…
Will 2019 be the Year of TRON (TRX)?
While even the best years cannot help sustain bad cryptocurrency projects, the good and strong ones can do much even when years are extremely bad for crypto. TRON (TRX) has proven this in 2018 by being one of the most active and most popular projects around.
Throughout the previous year, TRON has been making great progress, setting foundations for growth and expansion, which may eventually lead to its dominance over the crypto market. Now, 2019 has barely even started, and it already promises to be a year filled with potential and all kinds of different possibilities for this coin.
TRON in 2018
2018 has started with a market crash that has brought a lot of coins down from their all-time highs. This is true for TRON as well, and it did not manage to avoid being affected by bear market, no matter what its developers did. However, instead of trying to fight the market and its trends, they focused on expansion, development, partnerships, and future projects.
The first big step for TRON was the launch of its MainNet, with dozens of listings and partnerships being announced right before the final launch. After that, the coin transferred its tokens from Ethereum’s network, it had a Super Representative election, and it even managed to purchase BitTorrent, which was a part of a secret project back then.
The project was quickly…
