Indonesia Exchange Indodax Partners Up with TRON (TRX)




TRON (TRX) continues to progress, and its latest partnership includes Indonesia’s largest crypto exchange – Indodax. This will help TRON expand even more, while the exchange is expecting more users to join up, now that they are offering yet another crypto.

TRON enters yet another partnership

Despite the fact that TRON (TRX) has just launched its MainNet, this crypto still doesn’t show any signs of stopping. Instead, it continues on its way to conquer the crypto world, and its newest development includes a partnership with Indonesia’s largest crypto exchange, Indodax.

TRON has had several large expansions recently, the biggest ones being the expansion to Malta’s market, as well as its enlistment in Binance. Now, Indonesia also decided to open up to this crypto, which will help spread TRON’s influence in Asia. Starting today, June 4, the official TRX/rupiah pair will become the new trading possibility.

Indodax is an exchange that has been around for a while, now. It was created back in 2013, and until March of this year, it was called Bitcoin Indonesia. The exchange is currently processing over $20 million in various available cryptos per day, and with the addition of TRON, this amount may soon become even bigger. The exchange numbers around 1.14 million users, and according to estimations, over 3,000 new users are choosing to join in on daily basis.

The trading activities are expected to start tomorrow, June 5, and the exchange cannot be more excited to welcome TRON under its fold. Until now, Indodax was only offering a select few cryptos, including Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and Ripple (XRP). Its only trading pair so far was Bitcoin and Rupiah. According to the CoinMarketCap, the exchange’s total market cap right now is at around $23.4 billion, and the platform’s top cryptos are Storiqa, Bitcoin, and Tokenomy.

TRON’s team shares the excitement

The excitement about the enlistment of TRON is also shared by its founder, Justin Sun, which can be seen in the great number of tweets dedicated to this expansion.

So far, TRX has become a part of 98 exchanges across the globe, and Indodax is only the latest one to accept it. Still, it will not be the last one, and Sun has also mentioned this on his Twitter account, where he hinted at many more partnerships that this crypto is planning to enter in the future.

The enlistment of TRON is seen as a very positive development for Indonesia, especially since the Bank of Indonesia’s Governor, Agus Martowardojo, announced a total ban on all cryptos back in December 2017. The legislation which was enforced at the time prohibits the use of cryptos as a payment option. However, the legislation does not include activities like crypto mining or trading, which still allows exchanges of this country to continue functioning as usual.

As for TRON, its current price is at $0.059, and it remains the top trading coin in exchanges like Binance, Upbit, and Bithumb. A lot of TRX supporters have also noticed the slight increase in its price recently, as well as the market turning green, which brings high hopes for this, as well as various other cryptos.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on 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 Billionaire Predicts Massive Price Growth by 2021



crypto billionaire

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…

TokenRoll (TKR) Platform Will Take Online Casinos to the Next Level




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…
