The price of IOTA increased drastically by 39% in the last seven days after Fujitsu – a Japanese IT tech giant partnered with it. Before that happened, IOTA, TRON (TRX), and Monero had decreased in value following a big market dip that hit most cryptocurrencies in the crypto sphere.

IOTA fell out of its position – moving to the 11th spot, while TRON had moved down further to the 13th spot. But Ethereum Classic moved up to the 10th position immediately.

Following the recent growth on Monday, the price of IOTA got corrected and it moved to its no. 10th spot; Monero to 11th spot; Tron moved back to its normal position (12th spot) after getting a 6% increase on Monday.

MIOTA’s Current Price

MIOTA is the main token of IOTA blockchain; it surged on Monday, but in the last 24 hours, alongside almost of other cryptocurrencies, it has dropped to $0.69. The thing worth noting is, the token reached a peak of $0.7.234 on Monday – which the highest peak price it has attained in the month of August.

It is important to know that MIOTA was trading at $0.52862 on Sunday night, but on Monday morning (10:30 UTC), it peaked at 18%. MIOTA has been increasing by considerable percentages lately. As it seems, IOTA is trying to recover from its slip in the first week of August (of course, last 24 hours have changed the game again a bit).

At the time of writing, MIOTA has a market cap of $1,943,543,650, placing it at the number 10th position in the cryptocurrency market today. Additionally, MIOTA’s trading volume has reached $$77,403,494 so far (even after a 6% drop in the last 24 hours).

Nevertheless, even though MIOTA seems to have recovered, it dropped more than 30% this month (August), thus, making it one of the worst-performing cryptos in the cryptocurrency market. For a coin formally trading near $0.400 on August 11th and $0.468 on August 22nd, MIOTA has increased by a good value. Although, its low prices at those times were due to the overall market performance – and according to a news report, the price manipulation on Bitfnex may have caused it also.

Technology Giants, Fujitsu, decides to back IOTA

Fujitsu, a company based in Japan, has decided to make use of IOTA as its “new protocol standard” for its new services.

Leopold Sternberg, a program manager at Fujitsu, stated:

Fujitsu is well-equipped to help roll out IOTA as the new protocol standard as we are experts in both IT services and the manufacturing of IT products. Product quality is a critical success factor for the Manufacturing Industry. Assembled products can consist of hundreds of components and their production is based on complex processes. For audit trails in industrial production environments and supply chains, IOTA provides a single source of truth.”

IOTA has been dedicated to making sure its currency stays top. Even though IOTA has gotten lots of collaborations with top companies in the world today, it has also dealt with little controversies of its own.

IOTA aims to move higher than its current position and recently, it released the beta version of its Trinity Wallet. Consequently, IOTA’s Trinity Wallet enables users to have more than one account and it is compatible with PC’s and mobile devices.

Cryptocurrency traders have enjoyed a Bitcoin moon shot during the past few months.  Those gains have created a much more enjoyable environment for crypto bulls.  Whether it’s a temporary or permanent increase remains to be seen but hitting the 10,000 level has put everyone in a better mood.  Unfortunately, altcoins have not had experienced the same type of gains and are lagging significantly behind Bitcoin.

I’ve written articles in the past year that there is at least a decent chance that many altcoins won’t survive the current environment.  The ones that do will do so because they created a platform that has real world usage.  After spending countless hours researching many of the existing altcoins, I’ve yet to see a company that is more promising than Encrypgen (DNA).

Encrypgen Background Information

Encrypgen is a genomic blockchain network that provides customers and partners with best-in-class, next generation, blockchain security for protecting, sharing and re-marketing genomic data. This creates a fair marketplace for a person’s DNA that can be stored privately and sold (if a person wishes to do that). A person’s DNA can also be shared privately and securely with their physician for their personalized care.

Typically, people can send their DNA off to a lab to find out who they are and where they come from. As fun as that might sound, there is a significant security problem…

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.

1. TRON (TRX)

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…

We are now halfway through 2019, and the situation in the crypto space is better than ever in the past year. Numerous cryptos are seeing large gains, often cut by brief periods of stagnation or small corrections, but the overall sentiment is obviously bullish.

Bitcoin sits way above the $8k mark, and while it struggles to go beyond $8,700, it is still trying to grow. Investors and analysts are quite bullish regarding the foreseeable future, and a lot of altcoins are expected to follow BTC in this regard. However, today, we would like to talk about one particular altcoin — TRON (TRX) — as well as why it is likely to go big in June.

TRON’s progress so far

As many people in and out of TRON community know, TRX is not a project that often sits still. It is rich with announcements, particularly when it comes to his CEO, Justin Sun, whose enthusiastic tweets often seem like hype building to many.

However, TRON made some massive progress in 2018, which was the worst year cryptocurrencies have ever seen. This is not something that can be achieved through hype alone, and the project needs to have true quality and value in order to see such massive development in the middle of the longest and harshest crypto winter in…
