Here Is Why Tron (TRX) Won’t Be This Cheap Much Longer

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.

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…
