Tron (TRX) is riding the wave at the moment, and it has attracted the attention of big FinTech companies in the world today. The blockchain has also paved the way for innovations and, it is becoming the fastest growing cryptocurrency in the market today. Tron has acquired and produced numerous projects not only to benefit its ecosystem but its community too.

And now, a recent report by Diar says that project squads for the top 5 crypto organizations posses about 2.6 billion USD in their token holdings. The list includes IOTA, Cardano (ADA), Tron (TRX), NEO, and Tezos.

It is important to note that recently, the fifth set of TRX was burnt – about 1 billion ERC20 TRX tokens. After that, Tron CEO Justin Sun even decided to lock 33 billion TRX tokens until 2020.

According to the report by Diar, it has been noted that lots of Initial Coin Offerings that got created this year alone are struggling. The report notes,

While Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) have to date raised double in 2018 what they did last year, the controversial fund-raising vehicle is seeing its popularity diminish to select projects. Diar number crunching shows that 70% of tokens are now valued at less than what was raised during their ICO. And with tokens having no equity representation, markets have shrugged off cash-on-hand as part of an enterprise valuation

Diar has also summarized that the activities of ICOs are to be tamed till the end of this year, with only seventeen of crypto projects finalizing their fundraising in August this year.

Tron Mass Adoption Rate Increases

A new open-source wallet that is built on Tron’s network known as TronWalletMe has just been released. The company that has produced this wallet also decided to run for Tron’s Super Representative. The firm made the following announcement through its official Twitter page:

We are very excited to announce that TronWalletMe is running for Super Representative on the network of Tron (TRX).”

According to the company, “TronWallet is open-source beautiful, secure, simple, and powerful peer-to-peer digital currency wallet for Tron (TRX).” The wallet can now be used to send, receive, and vote on Tron’s network effectively.

Not too long ago, Tron also got adopted by a gaming platform which also runs on the Tron network: Intergalactic Gaming.

Tron (TRX) Recent Listings

Tron recently got succeeded to get two new trading pairs added to its ecosystem. Furthermore, Binance recently annexed TRX/USD on its platform, and TRX/BNB trading pairs will also begin on the platform.

Subsequently, as GlobalCoinReport reported recently, Bittrex Exchange also listed Tron by adding USD/TRX and USD/LTC pairs on its platform.

Tron has been listed on Kucoin, and TRX/USD trading pairs have also commenced on the platform.

Additionally, another famous crypto exchange BitBay listed Tron on its exchange platform, too. It is important to also note that BitBay boasts more than 80k users worldwide and it has now become the 3rd largest exchange in the crypto market. BitBay will now resume the withdrawals, deposits, and exchange of these trading pairs: TRX/EUR. TRX/USD. TRX/PLN, and TRX/BTC.

Tron is flourishing at the moment as it enjoys more usage and adoption from FinTech companies and notable exchanges in the crypto market.

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…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
