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.

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.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
