Tron has launched an airdrop for the Ethereum network community; the digital asset is still being tested and will be distributed to the Ethereum users soon. The TRX tokens airdrop will introduce 30M TRX project and show the advantages that people using the Ethereum network will get from the project.

If we recall, the Ethereum community has been very supportive to TRON during the ERC20 phase, and the company wishes to show their appreciation to the users by airdropping 30M TRX to them.

However, there is a catch — not an unfair one, though. The beneficially of this offer will be all active users of Ethereum network who will be having a balance of over 1E after 1st January 2018. The 30M TRX is worthy approximately USD$ 1.7M.

Advantages of TRON over Ethereum

Ethereum network has some challenges and limitations that TRON aims at rectifying. The new technology comes at a point when there has been a rivalry between Justin sun and Vitalik Buterin. Justin Sun, the founder of TRON, has recently been quoted claiming that TRON is way much better than Ethereum, but on the other hand, Vitalik Buterin feels that TRON does not have any creativity and is just an idea copied from Ethereum.

Diving into TRON’s 30m TRX airdrop deeper

It is projected that TRON will carry out more transactions than Ethereum, although some people feel that the features of TRON makes it easier and faster but do not take to account the efficiency of transactions. Subsequently, coming back to the TRON airdrop, all distribution of 30M TRX will be done automatically to the users of Etherium, and the customers will not be required to pay or provide any pin — now that’s a hint to users that they must not get trapped by scammers with this news later. The rewards given to the customers will range between 10 to 100 TRX tokens, which users could get converted to primary net tokens later.

Around 600,000 users will benefit from this rewards; this means that a significant portion of the outstanding 65 billion TRX tokens will remain unused. Subsequently, the owners of TRX tokens will have the right to participate in the various decision-making process such as voting of delegates and multiple types of nodes, although it is not entirely clear if the token owners will have interest in this project.

TRX at the moment

In regards to TRX’s current value, the news about the airdrop did not change the recovery of TRX market price much. There is recovery, but the recovery is still quite slow.

Currently, the market price of TRX is just above $0.05 (ranked 13th), but it is predicted that by the end of this year, the amount might rise as high as $1, which is a logic rate that has previously been attained by other projects such as Cardano (ADA) and Stellar (XLM). Indeed, if TRX can achieve the projected price of $ 1, considering it contains 65 billion tokens, it might displace Ripple (XRP). And become even the more successful project than Ethereum; now that’s way too far, right?

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

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…

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
