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.

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…

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…
