Bitcoin is a top-notch cryptocurrency and the most widely traded cryptocurrency in the crypto sphere. It occupies the No.1 position on CoinMarketCap today. And now, the crypto-king has declared its dominance once again as it becomes the coin that’s used the most on Bitcoin Superstore, a platform that allows users to shop online using cryptocurrencies from 200K stores worldwide (including the likes of Starbucks and Amazon).
Shockingly, the second and third largest cryptos, Ethereum and Ripple’s XRP respectively are not that popular on the platform. Bitcoin Superstore lists out Bitcoin, Nano, Tron, and Litecoin as the ‘most used’ digital currencies in the past ten days or so. Recently, the biggest (in fact, only prominent one at the moment) online crypto superstore said this on its Twitter page:
— Bitcoin Superstore (@BitcoinSuperst1) September 8, 2018
As noted in the tweet, Nano, which occupies No.30 in the cryptocurrency market is the second most used cryptocurrency on 200+ online stores taking about 20%; Tron at 17%; Litecoin holding 8%.
It is important to know that Bitcoin Superstore happens to be the only cryptocurrency store that allows any customer to buy from nearly any online trader with the top 10 cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin Superstore states that within the last ten days, these cryptocurrencies have been used the most.
Litecoin was created as a ‘fork of Bitcoin;’ it is also regarded as the silver to Bitcoin. LTC was created in 2011 and was seen as a big alternative to Bitcoin. It is one of the largest altcoins in the crypto sphere. It occupies the NO.7 position in the crypto sphere and overall, its performance has been ‘just okay’ lately.
Tron is one of the favorite cryptocurrencies today. Lately, Tron has partnered with lots of companies including Twitter. The cryptocurrency recently got listed on ChangeHero and unveiled its new project named: Project Atlas.
Additionally, it has received further attention as the blockchain firm launched SeedGerminator – an accelerator for the developers who wish to create tokens, Dapps (Decentralized Applications), and technology on the Tron protocol. Overall, Tron is doing quite well and occupies the No.13 position in the crypto market today.
Nano occupies the No.35 position in the crypto market and the cryptocurrency came into limelight in December 2017 at the time when investors were looking for better cryptocurrencies with the potential to perform better than Bitcoin.
Nano also had a big rise last year but decreased alongside other altcoins in the crypto sphere. Nano’s meteoritic growth just before the market dipped left its investors with nothing but deficits. Going in some flash-backs, Bitgrail owner Francesco Firano had even blamed Nano for the hack that made Nano dipped and slipped from its position to what it is now.
Overall, Nano is still doing quite well. Though, its blockchain structure had major problems such as that it may be vulnerable; but none of these problems have been found so far. In recent weeks, Nano has been performing better than many big altcoins.
As it is clearly seen, Bitcoin is the most traded coin in the world of crypto. Bitcoin was created in 2008. And one important thing is that no one knows who created Bitcoin or its whitepaper. We just know a name, Satoshi Nakamoto, and have seen an ‘unconfirmed’ headshot till the date.
Bitcoin had a meteoritic rise to $20,000 last year, before the big crash and now it is traded below $6500 mark. On a technical level, Bitcoin is still doing very well, and its performance tends to affect other altcoins in the crypto sphere. It also has the largest market capitalization of $108,682,214,552.

Lite.IM Dethrones Facebook After Integrating Crypto Wallet With Popular Messaging Platforms
With the crypto markets in turmoil, especially after news about a potential hack at Cryptopia, traders and investors need to turn their attention away from day trading. Instead, crypto traders really need to think long-term and identify projects that are sure to win in the long-term. In particular, one crypto company is making major headlines after winning an all-important technology battle against the mighty Facebook. That company is Zulu Republic (ZTX).
Zulu Republic Develops Lite.IM
Zulu Republic is an ecosystem of blockchain tools and platforms, designed as a place where people, businesses, and organizations can thrive on their own terms. And indeed, Zulu Republic has hit a grand slam with their development of Lite.IM.
Lite.IM is a crypto wallet that has been integrated with several of the most popular messaging platforms such as Facebook Messenger and Telegram. In addition, users in the U.S. and Canada can also exchange and manage crypto balances through SMS. Although not all cryptocurrencies are available, the team has selected four of the most popular currencies which include Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin (BTC), and the native currency of Zulu Republic (ZTX).
Telegram and Facebook Messenger are extremely popular platforms. But, potentially even more exciting news, is that the Lite.IM team plan to announce WhatsApp integration in the next 1-2 weeks. There is a reason why Facebook acquired WhatsApp in 2014, for…
Will 2019 be the Year of TRON (TRX)?
While even the best years cannot help sustain bad cryptocurrency projects, the good and strong ones can do much even when years are extremely bad for crypto. TRON (TRX) has proven this in 2018 by being one of the most active and most popular projects around.
Throughout the previous year, TRON has been making great progress, setting foundations for growth and expansion, which may eventually lead to its dominance over the crypto market. Now, 2019 has barely even started, and it already promises to be a year filled with potential and all kinds of different possibilities for this coin.
TRON in 2018
2018 has started with a market crash that has brought a lot of coins down from their all-time highs. This is true for TRON as well, and it did not manage to avoid being affected by bear market, no matter what its developers did. However, instead of trying to fight the market and its trends, they focused on expansion, development, partnerships, and future projects.
The first big step for TRON was the launch of its MainNet, with dozens of listings and partnerships being announced right before the final launch. After that, the coin transferred its tokens from Ethereum’s network, it had a Super Representative election, and it even managed to purchase BitTorrent, which was a part of a secret project back then.
The project was quickly…
