What do the cryptocurrencies of XRP (XRP), Stellar (XLM) and Tron (TRX) have in common right now?
Firstly, they are all reasonably priced at under half a dollar in this terrible bear market. XRP is currently trading at $0.44 at the moment of writing this and down 2.53% in the last 24 hours. Stellar (XLM) is currently priced at $0.18 and down 3% in the last 24 hours. Tron (TRX) has also not been doing too well and is valued at $0.032 and down 3.27% in the last 24 hours.
The current low price of these three digital assets is one reason why they are the future of crypto investing. There has never been a better time to get any digital asset at its cheapest than this present moment. We all remember how the lucky buyers of Litecoin (LTC) at $4 early in 2017, are still patting themselves on the shoulder for believing in the digital asset that is now valued at $75 a year later and in a bear market. This is a 1,775% increment in 12 months.
Secondly, these three coins are backed by wonderful blockchain technologies. XRP has its own ledger and utility in the Ripple company’s product of xRapid to source instant liquidity for cross-border transactions. The Ripple company has clearly stated it is a software solutions company that coincidentally uses XRP. Therefore, as the Ripple company expands, so shall the use of XRP in banks.
With respect to Stellar (XLM), the foundation has partnered with IBM which has in-turn partnered with the Australian government for the development of blockchain technology, A.I (artificial intelligence) and quantum computing in the country. This means that the Stellar blockchain and XLM will probably be used by the Australian government along the way.
Tron, on the other hand, has one of the fastest Mainnet platforms that can handle 2,000 transactions per second. This number is 80 times the capability of Ethereum’s network. For TRON, the future of DApps is for the taking when we look at it this way. Even Zilliqa cannot edge out TRON. The Tron foundation has done a stellar job marketing the platform that switching to Zilliqa will be as hard as defying gravity.
In conclusion, the three coins of XRP, XLM, and TRX are the future of crypto investments as well as blockchain technology. The current bear market is a good time to grab a few of these digital assets for the future is bright for crypto with the institutional money destined to come in any time now. There is also the fact that each of these coins have great blockchain platforms to further push their individual platforms into the future.

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…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
