Yet again, during a tweet by the CEO of Tron, Justin Sun, the Tron foundation announced the burn of ERC-20 tokens. It is important to know that this will be the 5th set of ERC20 TRX tokens that have been burnt by Tron after the launch of its MainNet. According to Sun’s tweet, the ERC tokens burnt was roughly 4.9 billion – the coin burn occurred last week, on Thursday, Sept 13.

Tron’s Token Burn

Tron’s MainNet was launched on July 25th, and since then, Tron has continued to burn some of its old tokens.  According to Tron Foundation, the coin burn is regarded as the final phase of the Tron’s complete migration from Ethereum’s protocol.

As mentioned earlier, the 5th set of TRX tokens have been burned; the first set of tokens burned during Tron’s mainNet launch was approximately $50 million.

Due to the fact that about 4,917,487,036.059613 ERC20 TRX tokens have burned recently, Tron Foundation stated this in a blog post:

Currently, TRON mainnet runs smoothly, there are 1058 nodes around the world, block height: 2309162 (As of 18:45, September, 13, SGT), token migration is still in process, meanwhile TRON will keep Tronics informed, thank you for your support.”

Nevertheless, the Foundation didn’t fail to state the reason why another token was burned, which is to decrease and control the number of TRX tokens in circulation, to avoid mix-ups and increase the value of TRX in the crypto market.

Tron’s community on their part expressed their feelings and opinions, which weren’t positive enough as they weren’t excited with the recent token burn.

Moving forward, after the launch of Tron’s MainNet, the blockchain firm has increasingly been supported by different FinTech companies and Exchanges – as, it succeeded in getting featured on Wallets such as SatoWallet, Cobinhood, etc.

Tron Continues to Grow Riding on its Recent Developments

Not too long ago, Sun announced that Tron (TRX) had achieved greater heights as the number of accounts on its MainNet has exceeded those on EOS MaiNet, despite EOS MaiNNet being in the game for a while now.

Lots of crypto enthusiasts have noticed that the main reason why Tron has been able to surpass its predecessors and get lots of accounts on its MainNet was that it permitted Twitter and other social network users to send TRX within themselves.

Let’s not forget that Tron (TRX) got listed on ChangeHero and Instant crypto exchange platform, just recently. Nonetheless, Tron’s daily transaction has reached nearly one-third of Ethereum’s transaction. A tweet by TRX Colony reads,

TRX stared Aug. with only 30,100 transactions a day. By the end of the month, the average of daily transactions was nearly 1/3 that of Ethereum. Tron is the fastest growing coin; this rocket ain’t stopping for anyone.”

Subsequently, as it’s no secret to anyone, Tron has also acquired BitTorrent, which is often regarded as one of the greatest achievements in the crypto space. The blockchain firm has also optimized its feat with the launch of its Virtual Machine. The CEO of Tron, Justin Sun stated this during the launch of its Virtual Machine:

TRON is 80 times faster than Ethereum. With 14 years of experience, BitTorrent is providing world-class service to 100 million users in 138 countries. Add the two together, and you get the largest and most advanced peer-to-peer network in the world!”

Tron TRX Price Overview

There has been a slight improvement in the price of TRX after the coin burn. At the time of writing, TRX price has increased to $0.0195, after it saw a slight increase of 1.2% in its worth in the last 24-hours.

As the global economy continues to deal with the economic fallout due to the ongoing pandemic, companies are coming to terms with the fact that normalcy may not return for quite a while.  Many economists are wondering how the business landscape will look a year or more from now.  It’s certainly possible that many businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, may be unable to survive the current downturn.  But while some businesses will falter, others will emerge stronger than ever.

Traditionally, when economies go through a severe downturn, companies adapt.  Those that maintain the status quo usually have great difficulty while those that adapt prosper and conquer.  One possible example of this is Lotto Nation.  Thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of Nils Thomson, the Founder and CEO of Lotto Nation, the company is attempting to completely modernize the traditional lottery industry.

Current Lottery Model is Severely Outdated

It’s safe to say that nearly every human that has ever walked the earth has fantasized about winning the massive jackpot that would completely change their life.  These dreams have turned the global lottery industry into a $302 billion market that is expected to reach $380 billion by 2025.  Despite this predicted growth, the industry suffers from a variety of problems that are preventing it from really exploding.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that traditional lotteries are centralized.  Because of…

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…

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.
