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:

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 (LTC)

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 (TRX)

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 (NANO)

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.

Bitcoin (BTC)

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.

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).

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…

We are now halfway through 2019, and the situation in the crypto space is better than ever in the past year. Numerous cryptos are seeing large gains, often cut by brief periods of stagnation or small corrections, but the overall sentiment is obviously bullish.

Bitcoin sits way above the $8k mark, and while it struggles to go beyond $8,700, it is still trying to grow. Investors and analysts are quite bullish regarding the foreseeable future, and a lot of altcoins are expected to follow BTC in this regard. However, today, we would like to talk about one particular altcoin — TRON (TRX) — as well as why it is likely to go big in June.

TRON’s progress so far

As many people in and out of TRON community know, TRX is not a project that often sits still. It is rich with announcements, particularly when it comes to his CEO, Justin Sun, whose enthusiastic tweets often seem like hype building to many.

However, TRON made some massive progress in 2018, which was the worst year cryptocurrencies have ever seen. This is not something that can be achieved through hype alone, and the project needs to have true quality and value in order to see such massive development in the middle of the longest and harshest crypto winter in…
