TRON (TRX) has recently seen a significant increase in value, after an entire series of positive news regarding the coin’s progress that was posted by its founder, Justin Sun.

TRON (TRX) has always been known as the coin with one of the strongest communities in the crypto world. This time, the community really came through, once again being led by the TRX founder. In a recent series of tweets listing all the positives that have happened to the TRON project in the last few weeks, Justin Sun seemingly inspired another price surge that has seen TRON go up by no less than 11%.

TRON has done a lot in a very short time, which is an impressive feat by itself. It is even more impressive when we consider how bad this year was for the crypto world, with more than half a year of a bear market. So, what positives has Sun mentioned? What has happened to inspire such a big value increase just by reminding the community about it? Let’s take a look.

TRON gets on KuCoin

KuCoin is a pretty big exchange, currently holding the 53rd spot on the list of exchanges regarding the daily trading volume. Around $17 million worth of different coins go through KuCoin each day, which will mean a lot to TRX, especially since it is paired with both Bitcoin and Ethereum. TRON officially went live on August 28th, only days before the launch of TRON Virtual Machine.

Another large token burn

TRON has recently also held another big token burn, with around $670 million of the remaining ERC-20 tokens being burnt. This is also not the first time that the coin has done this, but is, in fact, the fourth such event in its history.

The launch of TronChat

TronChat has been something that TRON’s community has been waiting for for a while now. It was imagined to be a competition for multiple other social media apps, including YouTube, Instagram, and even Facebook itself. The best thing about it is that it will allow users to earn TRX coins, in addition to being a new large social network.

Its creation was inspired by the flaws and errors that so many other social networks suffer from. Facebook, for example, was criticized for poor protection of the users’ privacy, which is what caused a lot of consumers to lose trust in this and similar platforms.

TronChat aims to fix this and provide users with a new and improved network, that will also be completely trustworthy.

TRON Virtual Machine launch

Let’s not forget the launch of TVM, which was highly anticipated by the entire community for months. The TVM was said to make TRON one of the biggest names in the development of dApps, which will definitely pose a big issue for Ethereum. Ethereum has almost single-handedly started the rise of ICOs thanks to its dApp development platform. For a long time, it was the top player in this field, with no other project even coming close to it. Now, thanks to TVM, TRON will come uncomfortably near, and maybe even completely surpass it.

All in all, TRON has been making a lot of progress in numerous directions. Because of that, it is of a small surprise that piling up all of these achievements inspired a new price surge.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

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.
