Tron (TRX) HODLers who are also users of the popular cryptocurrency exchange of Binance have been waiting patiently for the resumption of deposits and withdrawals of TRX on the platform ever since the token migration officially began on the 21st of June this year. Binance and the Tron Foundation have offered apologies for the delay and further stating that regular services on the exchange will resume sometime this week.
In the announcement via their medium page, the Tron Foundation stated that:
“The technical teams on both sides are working closely to push forward the migration. Deposit and withdrawal services are expected to be provided within the next week.
We would like to extend our sincerest apologies for keeping you waiting, but we are also kindly asking all TRON supporters and Binance users to remain patient. We are continuously working towards building a global ecosystem. Thank you for your support and understanding.”
So why is Binance key in breaking the current TRX price decline?
To begin, the value of TRX has plummeted since the Tron Independence Day. TRX is currently valued at $0.033 and down 9.33% in the last 24 hours (at the moment of writing this). TRX has also dropped from the number 9 spot on coinmarketcap.com to the number 12 slot. IOTA and NEO have zoomed passed TRX.
The TRX trading on Binance represents a total of approximately 20% of all the TRX traded globally. The number one spot goes to BitForex.com with the exchange handling 33% of all the TRX traded worldwide. BitForex has resumed TRX withdrawals and deposits, but the market response is still minimal. The extra liquidity of TRX brought about by Binance resuming deposits and withdrawals, will add to the demand of the coin in the crypto-verse. This means that with full functionality, Binance will assist TRX in regaining its number 9 spot on coinmarketcap.com and even facilitating at top 5 finish by the end of 2018.
A second reason why Binance is key to breaking the current TRX price decline is that the exchange is currently handling the highest daily trade volume of any exchange. Binance is handling a total of $1.124 Billion in trade volume at the moment of writing this. This means TRX will get more trade action once deposits and withdrawals resume. Binance has also instituted a TRX trading competition worth 10 Million in TRX to entice more TRX trading.
Lastly, the solid partnership between Binance and the Tron Foundation has resulted in the former guaranteeing permanent TRX token migration until the last TRX token is converted. This means once again, Binance is the focal point of TRX token migration after the Tron Independence Day.
Summing it all up, the crypto exchange of Binance will play a big role in TRX trading activities since the exchange announced it will support permanent token migration for the foreseeable future. With the resumption of TRX deposits and withdrawals sometime this week, the price of our favorite coin of TRX will no longer be as low as it is right now. Another way of viewing this is seeing the current low TRX value as an opportunity to get some more TRX in the crypto markets.

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…
