The word on the crypto-verse is that the Tron (TRX) token migration is going along smoothly with some exchanges already releasing the new coins to HODLers. Some owners have even staked their coins for the Super Representative elections. It is these activities that have been responsible for the price stagnation of the coin. I believe it is time we started referring to TRX as a coin for it is on its own blockchain.
With the two reasons why TRX is going through a price stagnation, we find that the coin is currently valued at the relatively cheap price of $0.04 and up 7.75%. This figure is bound to increase in value as I shall elaborate below.
To begin with, the Tron Foundation recently confirmed the lockup of 33.25 Billion TRX in 1,000 accounts on the Tron MainNet. This move is similar to how the Ripple team locked up 55 Billion XRP in Escrow to guarantee that the supply of the coin would not suddenly increase by the company’s action of suddenly liquidating the coins it owned. This is so similar to what the Tron Foundation has just done. This means that once investors notice this, the price of TRX will most likely skyrocket like XRP did back in December when it locked up the coins in Escrow.
Secondly, Coinbase recently launched a new product for its institutional investors. This new product goes by the name of CoinBase Custody. What this service does, is provide a secure storage service for the digital assets of high net individuals as well as institutional investors. This means that Coinbase has solved the issue of crypto security for these individuals and firms who will in turn bring int the Billions, or even Trillions, of dollars into the crypto markets. Knowing how many investors think like Warren Buffett, they love a cheap buy. TRX is cheap right now. (Buffett vows not to touch crypto, but he might warm up to the thought when he sees ‘the fireworks display’ that is coming.)
A third reason why TRX will not be this cheap much longer, is that the MainNet has been working flawlessly since it went live with the Genesis block on the 25th of June. This means that all the ICOs that are coming up in the second half of 2018, will have a new option on the table. Knowing how ICO founders think, they love a new blockchain platform they can use to promote their ICO on. They go with the tide of what blockchain platform is hot.
2017 was the year for Ethereum. This year will be a tug of war between Tron, EOS, VEN and Zilliqa. May the best blockchain project with the best marketing strategy to succeed in wooing the best ICO projects. However, Tron seems to be ahead of the curve with this regard. Even Pornhub loves TRX.

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…
