Justin Sun News Boosts TRON (TRX) Once More

Published

on

TRON

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.

GDA Capital in Conversation About the Future of Digital Assets at Global Family Office Summit

Published

on

GDA Capital organized the quarterly Global Family Office Summit this week. The event was held virtually with a number of technology leaders and high net worth investors who discussed issues such as education, trust and responsibility to give back. Among these were insightful conversations with Dubai-based Dalma Capital’s CEO Zachari Cefaratti, Holt Fintech Accelerator founder Brendan Hold Dunn, Global Data Sentinel CEO and White City Ventures Chairman of the Board Shahal Khan, and Elitium CEO Raoul Milhado, among others. Participants were also given access to off-market opportunities to invest in novel technologies.

Will Bartlett, GDA Capital’s Director of Research, headlined the event by focusing on tech in the modern economy, and identifying six sectors where new technologies can make a lasting impact: robotics, space, biotech, machine learning, quantum computing, and blockchain. In the context of blockchain, he discussed how digital assets are a hedge against traditional financial markets. “Cryptocurrencies have no exposure to stock market returns, macroeconomic factors, or returns of currencies and commodities,” Bartlett said.

More so, Bartlett believes that new models for digital assets such as DigitalBits’ branded stablecoins are key to the development of the field. These currencies replace traditional rewards and loyalty point systems that are commonly used by household brands by porting them to the blockchain. Meanwhile, they rely on brand…

Chainwire Launches Blockchain-Focused Automated Press Release Distribution Service

Published

on

TEL AVIV, Israel, 13th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

MarketAcross, a world leader in blockchain public relations and marketing services, is pleased to announce the launch of Chainwire, an automated press release distribution service which provides guaranteed coverage and in-depth reports. Chainwire will be a one-stop-shop for the distribution of press releases in the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector. The launch marks the first time that advertisers can reach leading publications in the crypto media with the click of a button. 

While most industries have some kind of PR newswire service, the cryptocurrency sector has become a victim of its own rapid pace of growth over recent years. Since the ICO boom of 2017, there has been a proliferation of blockchain and crypto-focused projects, exchanges, investment firms, and marketing agencies, along with niche news and informational content sites. 

However, the infrastructure to connect this complex ecosystem has been slow to come up to speed, meaning that existing newswire services don’t reach their target audience. It’s estimated that one in five people own cryptocurrencies, so there is currently a significant missed opportunity to reach a massive global readership. 

As a newswire service dedicated to the crypto and blockchain space, Chainwire aims to address this gap. Press releases are distributed to leading publications, offering guaranteed coverage to reach audiences worldwide. The system is integrated with publishers and blogs, enabling accurate reporting via a user-friendly dashboard. It also…

As a participant, DigitalBits governing body, the XDB Foundation will be providing regular updates and commit to transparency. The DigitalBits blockchain was built to support consumer digital assets – branded currencies.  As the company stated, “a global, legacy digital asset class, branded currencies play a vital role in consumer-brand interactions, and account for billions of dollars in value.  Branded currencies issued on the DigitalBits blockchain will also be included within the Messari Registry.”

This registry would address issues consumers face when determining the legitimacy of branded currencies and their respective organizations,” the announcement said today.  The goal is to provide a standardized framework for organizations leveraging branded currencies, certifying asset legitimacy, and clearly outlining characteristics including but not limited to asset issuance and organization identity.
