There’s not a doubt that TRON (TRX) has come a long way concerning its beginnings as an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) back in 2017. The company managed to surge to the top and become one of the most exciting projects in the industry in just a matter of months.
That’s a fact that is mainly attributed to the hard work of Justin Sun, a Chinese businessman considered to be one of the brightest minds in Asia and the whole world, not to mention that he is a former student of Alibaba’s Jack Ma.
Sun has characterized for being the closest with TRON’s community, or Tronics as he usually calls them. The CEO shares with Tronics all of the moves that involve the company regarding developments, partnerships, and upgrades.
And even though June 25th (when Tron got independence from Ethereum blockchain) seemed like the most important date for the company a few months ago, we understand now that this is just the beginning.
Despite the constant up and downs of the market, and the generalized downtrend of the year, it seems like TRON (TRX) is finally recovering from the blows that the crypto has received in the last months. Let’s discover the main facts as to why TRON is one of the best blockchain projects out there.
Mass adoption on the way
June 25th was the date the company finally got decouple from Ethereum protocols and launched its very own main net, Odyssey. Today, months later we realize that was actually not the ceiling for TRON. In fact, does TRON have a ceiling? Well, it doesn’t seem like, considering the post-mainnet projects, the TRON Virtual Machine, and The Super Representative Elections… And truth be told, it looks, Sun hasn’t even stopped there.
Not so long ago Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of Ethereum stated that the crypto verse doesn’t have space for a 1000 times growth anymore, a fact with which Sun clearly disagrees, he recently responded that all of the wealth was going to turn into cryptocurrencies very soon “like black hole and grow much bigger in the future”.
Like this, we can see how despite the downtrends of the market, Sun continues to have a positive sentiment regarding crypto, and that’s exactly what he shares as well with all of the Tronics out there.
He has continued developing projects to achieve its final goal of ‘decentralizing the internet’ and of course, to accomplish the ultimate goal for all of the cryptos which is mass adoption.
In this sense, one of the things that will help go to the masses is the latest addition of the TRX/USD pair by Bitrex which is going live on September 17th. This, along with the acquisition of BitTorrent, the biggest peer-to-peer Torrent platform in the world.
Sun plans to integrate both TRON and BitTorrent in a project dubbed Atlas that primarily seeks to reward everyone who uses the BitTorrent platform to share content with the 100 million users that the network has. The initiative will for sure increase flow of the crypto, and this will have a positive repercussion concerning prices.
As a matter of fact, the last days for TRON (TRX) has been pretty much positive being on the green with remarkable percentages of increase, an effect that has created a positive sentiment in the community. At the moment of writing, the TRX token prices at $0.019527, with a 2.73 percent of the increase in the last 24 hours.
Could TRON manage to maintain the hype? We can’t be sure about that, but the one thing we can count is that TRON continues to work towards achieving its goal, and the project remains focused on making it happen. So stay tuned.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
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…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
