Here Is How Tron (TRX) Becomes a ‘Sh*t-Coin’ in A Good Way

Published

on

Tron

Sh*tcoin is a term that is used in the crypto-verse to describe a coin or token that is more or less worthless. The usual story is that they start off as revolutionary blockchain projects that claim to disrupt everything: banking, insurance, online identity et al. They raise funds and then the project fails and disappears into obscurity together with the value of the token or coin. Tron (TRX) was once referred to as a sh*tcoin but it has proved critics wrong with a working Mainnet, a loyal community and a bright future with BitTorrent being its golden goose.

So why is Tron (TRX) a Sh*t-coin in A Good Way?

The Tron foundation has recently announced a partnership wit MOSHROOM which is a leading portable smart toilet supplier in China. As weird as the partnership might sound, it is strategic in the sense that we have to use these facilities a few times a day. Justin Sun announced the partnership via Twitter as can be seen below:

Investigating further about the partnership, we find that they will work on blockchain technologies, especially cross-border settlements with cryptocurrencies. MOSHROOM has a track record of innovating some of the best smart toilets out there complete with renewable energy and vending machines.

Smart Toilet from MOSHROOM

Supported by the Chinese government, MOSHROOM has placed dozens of these portable toilets in the streets of Beijing thereby making this partnership with Tron quite significant. The cooperation will allow MOSHROOM to gain technical support for mobile payments, especially on the cross-border front.

Justin Sun is quoted as saying the following with regards to the partnership:

“TRON hopes to help MOSHROOM improve bathroom experience for more ordinary people in developing countries, with a focus on cross-border payment settlement. We would like to make sure that this project continues in an effective and healthy manner with a good business model.”

The aspect of cross-border transactions was further elaborated by the founder and CEO of MOSHROOM, Cosmos Wu:

“Since currency systems vary from country to country, it’s not an easy job to popularize our portable toilets around the world. Therefore, we are happy to work with TRON, one of the best in the blockchain community, and promote our project with the help of cryptocurrency.”

TRON and MOSHROOM will first promote portable toilets in Southeast Asia and India: regions with a considerably high population. The usage and payment of the toilets will be enabled by blockchain technologies.

So there you have it, ladies and gents. TRX is now a ‘sh*t-coin’ in a good way. The cryptocurrency will be advancing public health and sanitation as well as getting into a new industry of cross-border payments. One is tempted to remember that Justin Sun once worked for Ripple before starting his own project. Therefore, there is some hidden excitement in all this and as to what the final solution will be.

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?

Published

on

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…
