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).

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 Billionaire Predicts Massive Price Growth by 2021

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…
