Here Is How The Tron (TRX) Token-Burn Will Affect The Price of TRX

In an announcement via the Tron (TRX) Foundation medium page, the team at Tron made it known that they will conduct a coin burn of 1 Billion TRX all at once, to commemorate the exciting event that is The Tron Independence Day. This amount in TRX roughly translates to $50 Million worth of the digital assets.

According to the announcement, this amount might set world records for the highest amount of money or its equivalent, destroyed in human history at one go. The amount of TRX at the beginning of the MainNet launch will be reduced to 99 Billion TRX with the remaining 33,251,807,524 TRX held by the TRON foundation will stay locked until January 1st, 2020.

So how does this affect the price of TRX?

Considering the fact that the Tron Foundation will burn TRX from the amount in its possession, this act only reduces the total supply of TRX and not the circulating supply of the digital asset. When calculating the price of a stock or cryptocurrency, it is the circulating supply that determines the supply and demand dynamics that determine the price of an asset.

This means that the coin burn will not directly affect the price of the digital asset. All it does is guarantee that there is 1 Billion less TRX possessed by the Tron Foundation. Perhaps what might drive the price up, is the guaranteed lockup of the remaining TRX by the Tron Foundation. This will give investors more confidence in the digital asset.

One can remember the market response of the Ripple camp locking up 55 Billion XRP in escrow. This guaranteed that the company would not ‘flood’ the digital asset in the markets. Investors were pleased and the value of XRP went up for a good while until mid-January.

So how else will the price of TRX go up?

As earlier demonstrated by Global Coin report, the increase in the price of TRX will be brought about by a stable and secure MainNet blockchain that will be the choice of the many DApp developers out there. With a solid product, comes the attention to the project and coin. This is a manner similar to how Ethereum managed to climb up the market cap ladder from mid last year to the current number two spot according to coinmarketcap.com.

There is also the transactional TRX coin burn that was highlighted by Justin Sun during the launch of the MainNet on the 31st of May. There will be a burn of 0.1 TRX when a new account on the platform is created and transfers cost 0.001 TRX. This means with time, the circulating supply of TRX will gradually decrease hence pushing the price of the future TRX coin up.

That said, the value of TRX has been affected by the general decline of the cryptocurrency markets. TRX is currently trading at $0.045 and down 6.21% in the last 24 hours. Perhaps as we inch closer to the Independence day that is less than 2 days away, the price of the Token will reflect the excitement of the Tron believers and HODLers.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

DEXes

While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
