Tron (TRX) has become one of the best well-positioned virtual coins in the current panorama for cryptocurrencies. This is a fact mainly attributed to amazingly deployed strategies of its head, Justin Sun, a businessman who parallel to Tron also runs the Peiwo APP, an equivalent to Snapchat in the Asian country, China.

Mr. Sun is one of the most widely acclaimed figures in the financial industry today, not only in China but the whole world. He managed to run a cryptocurrency just in times of severe regulations in Asia, and also he successfully achieved its positioning in the global market in a brief period. So what’s the key?

Well, it all seems to the point that Sun has a great entrepreneurial mindset, and his thoughts on expansion and innovations are just limitless. In this matter, the more recent idea of his is to somehow mix his cryptocurrency platform with the way torrents work, and everything seems to lead to the notion that he will soon acquire the giant of the sector, BitTorrent INC (the firm behind uTorrent, too).

Justin Sun’s acquisition of BitTorrent, Inc.

Justin Sun has set a vision with its cryptocurrency and platform which is to make the web space completely decentralized. So far he has implemented several strategies framed on this vision, including the latest creation and launch (occurring in 5 days) of Tron’s mainnet, one of the most awaited events in the crypto industry.

Along with this decentralization vision, Sun has established as well Tron’s interest in approaching somehow the Torrent industry, a fact that’s even mentioned on its whitepaper.

Apparently, the rapprochement occurred for the first time last year when he started negotiations with the BitTorrent inventor, Bram Cohen, but that’s something which actually didn’t result that well. The company which a year ago smoothly changed its name to Rainberry, seemingly incurred in a violation of a “No shop” clause arranged with TRON’s founder Justin Sun.

As a matter of fact, Sun took the case to the court alleging the now called Rainberry, told him they have had negotiations talks with other two companies that apparently offered a better deal. Regarding the case, the court dismissed the demand but as it seems Sun is not willing to let the opportunity go away.

Not so long ago, back in February of this year, the registration of a company called “Rainberry acquisition” was discovered, and the surprising part radicates in the fact that it was found to be registered in the name of no other than Justin Sun itself. Furthermore, the registration date casually matches the expiration date of exclusivity period established in the Letter of intent signed by the two parties previously.

This way, it all seems like Sun has not moved aside the idea of acquiring BitTorrent INC, a fact that even was confirmed by the disputed company in an interview for TorrentFreak.com. However, still nothing has been accepted by the CEO of TRON, hence in the meantime, we remain somewhat ‘expectatious’.

But as this stand right now, it all seems to point out to the fact that Mr. Sun is all set to acquire BitTorrent, Inc shortly. It will be interesting to see how both, BitTorrent and Tron TRX, go hand-in-hand once they are in the hands of the very same owner, Mr. Sun. And of course, even though, it’s still a rumor, the potential acquisition is going to enable the Tron’s TRX bull to keep charging further (alongside a decent number of other exciting news surrounding the coin lately).

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.

ICTE May Bring About Sweeping Changes for Cryptocurrency Exchanges

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
