Yesterday, June 25, 2018, was an exciting day for Tron Foundation; this is because the cryptocurrency scored its independence and became a ‘self-governed’ platform. Also yesterday, Tron celebrated its Independence Day, and Justin Sun stated on the official Tron Foundation Blog the events that were to commemorate and perhaps the most important of them all was the token burning event.

The burning of coins in the crypto-sphere ensures that the tokens left will be re-valued because most digital currencies have a finite average number. Furthermore, a coin burn can also be seen as a way of generating new tokens to destroy the tokens that were not sold.

Tron Foundation earlier disclosed that after the $1 billion worth of coin burn, it would conserve a substantial number of “locked” tokens to avoid an inflationary process and to protect the value of TRX tokens:

“The amount of TRX at the beginning of mainnet launch will be reduced to 99,000,000,000,000TRX, and the remaining 33,251,807,524 TRX held by TRON foundation will stay locked until January 1th, 2020.”

Tron’s coin burn marks the greatest in history as the most significant amount of currency burnt in a day in celebration of a historic moment, according to Tron Foundation.

It is important to note that Tron Foundation stated that the burning of tokens would begin from the foundation holdings making sure that token holders aren’t affected in any way. These events plus Tron’s MainNet (Odyssey) launch process will be the finale of all research and development works done by Tron Foundation and its users.

Nevertheless, Tron’s coin burn can be seen as a new phase for the blockchain platform. As this phase got actualized yesterday, new TRX tokens were distributed to exchanges, and also, wallets got swapped. It simply means that as a user of Tron (TRX), if you HODL the token, there is a high possibility that your wallet or exchange might be automatically swapped.

In addition, exchanges will decide when they would want to move their TRX tokens from ERC20 to Tron MainNet tokens. After TRX tokens have been moved to Tron MainNet tokens, users could withdraw their tokens and make deposits on the wallets supported by Tron and begin to vote for the first Super Representatives Election slated to hold on June 23, 2018. That’s all done.

Right now, the price of Tron (TRX) is in the red, and this is due to the current market situation. With Tron’s (TRX) coin burn and the migration of TRX tokens from ERC20 to Tron MainNet tokens, the price value of TRX has the ability change.

However, a change in the price value of TRX may not be actualized due to the market volatility and other factors that control the value of the tokens daily. Also, the tokens that got burned were not a part of the circulating supply, which means that the coin burn will not affect the market supply. So, it is not ‘must’ that the coin burn will affect Tron’s price dramatically. For now, let’s keep our fingers crossed and see how things unfold in the next few weeks!

As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible.  While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.  The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above.  In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country.  Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…
