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?

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

DEXes

While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
