Tron (TRX) has been giving the most solid steps towards becoming a top crypto in the market, and at the same time, towards continuing in the path of achieving its goal of making the internet fully decentralized. In this sense, we need to recall that Tron launched its Test net a few months ago now, and shortly after successfully deployed its migration to its own blockchain.
Afterward, Tron’s Virtual Machine was announced, and parallel to that, the Super Representative Elections of Tron, the elections in which a self-governed community would be elected with the purpose of becoming the first democratic crypto of the market.
Concerning this, the CEO of the company, Justin Sun, has already announced 24 of the candidates that will participate in the elections, and a couple of days ago, he declared as well the integration of two new members to the panel. Let’s see all the details behind the new addition and the characteristics of these members.
The new candidates
Justin Sun made the announcement through his official Twitter account in two different Tweets. In this sense, the first member announced was TRX Market, the Tweet read:
TRXMarket will run for #TRONSR. TRXMarket is a decentralized exchange based on the #TRON network. It aims to provide decentralized exchange services for the TRON community.#TRX $TRX https://t.co/1fT8bsJGps
— Justin Sun???? (@justinsuntron) August 17, 2018
In addition to this, one could say that TRX Market is a platform that aims to serve as an exchange service for Tron users, it actually aims to ensure that TRX holders have access to a decentralized network in which seamless transitions are deployed.
A few minutes later, another Tweet came on announcing the other candidate, which is nothing less than EtherPoker, the Tweet read:
EtherPoker will run for #TRONSR. EtherPoker is a data prediction blockchain game channel. Currently, EtherPoker is developing a predictive game channel to provide services to the users of the #TRON community. #TRX $TRX https://t.co/KPd0t2iNbn
— Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) August 17, 2018
The main goal for EtherPoker is to make the blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, and all of the related, more mainstream instrument for TRX enthusiasts and investors.
The role of the SR community
As Justin Sun himself defines it, the Super Representative community has a crucial role in the upcoming days of the TRX token. He expressed that the Super Representatives to be elected have a great responsibility as they will shape “the network’s safety and reliability,” and at the same time, they have the task to “embrace and advance the idea of decentralization.”
Sun also commented that he always believed an election of this kind was more than necessary to create a democratic and trustworthy community that supports the growth of the crypto and the market. Sun’s words:
“I am running this project on the side of my role of CEO and I’m trying to share updates as frequently as possible”
He concluded by highlighting the massive responsibility that all of the Tron SR candidates will have in the coming days, as well as mentioning his joy by knowing they are a step closer towards becoming democratic decentralized crypto.

NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
