Here is why Jack Ma’s Alibaba needs to be serious about partnering with TRON




The TRX community is not new to speculation and predictions. Whether it be about the price movements of TRX or future partnerships, that much can be said especially with the recent rumors of a possible partnership between TRON and Alibaba group (the E-commerce giant of the East).

What you need to know about the Rumour

Well, if this comes as a surprise to you, here is a brief recap. The whole situation actually started when the founder of TRON, Justin Sun mentioned in a post on tweeter about the possible exciting partnership announcement between the now top ten ranked cryptocurrency and its ‘biggest partner ever’. With that single post, the whole community was abuzz with excitement that has lasted a couple of weeks.

Tron has been growing over the past few months with a current team of over 100 members in its Beijing headquarters plus plans for increasing the team to a full house of 400 members working on the platform. If Tron’s founder Justin Sun is able to achieve this by the end of the year, he will comfortably be on track to beat top organizations like Ethereum that boast of over a thousand members on its team.

With this kind of workforce, the speed of development on TRON runaway will obviously increase and with that comes more partnerships with leading firms and entities. But with that being said, the one partnership that TRON enthusiasts are waiting for with baited breaths is the partnership with Jack Ma’s Alibaba Group.

Already there have been speculation and perdition that the planned partnership is set to happen somewhere in the middle of this month. So far, however, TRON is still on course to the launch of its Mainnet with an ongoing super representative election and ranking that Mr.Sun has been talking about on his twitter handle.

Taking a closer look at the possibilities

However, looking at Jack Ma’s philosophy of building the future of e-commerce and allowing the young generation to take up leading positions, there is an absolute reason to the rampant speculation of a possible partnership between Alibaba and TRON. Granted, Jack Ma has publicly stated his dislike for Bitcoin, however, he also believes that the Blockchain is a promising technology. In fact, Justin Sun has previously mentioned his close ties with the founder of Alibaba group not to mention Sun’s achievements as the best graduate apprentice from Hupan University which Mr.Ma happens to be involved.

How Alibaba will benefit

Although these rumors have been ongoing for weeks it would not only be great for TRON to bag such a huge partnership but it would also serve the Alibaba group well if they managed to work with TRON especially now that the platform is growing with a young team of developers and a series of advancements set for later this month on TRON’s Blockchain network.

With the launch of the Mainnet TRON is set to pave the way for a truly decentralized internet 4.0 that Alibaba’s e-commerce empire can thrive upon. Recent tests by the TRON team on the network ended up being successful.

Tron is focused on making it easy for creators to sell their content online while also facilitating efficiency for consumers looking to buy content. If Alibaba is ever to partner with Tron, it will be able to go head to head with other e-commerce giants such as Amazon that is expanding their reach into the entertainment industry.

Investors Beware: Another Large Bitcoin Crash Might Be Coming



Bitcoin crash

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Top 3 Coins to Buy Before They Go Big




Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.


Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

Can Crypto Credit Cards Disrupt the Fight Against Financial Crime?



crypto credit cards

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
