TRON Celebrates Burning Over Half a Billion Tokens

TRON (TRX) torched another round of its old tokens, bound to Ethereum’s network. Additionally, its new wallet finally got on the iOS App Store.

TRON team celebrates new progress

TRON (TRX) has become known for two things — making significant progress, and for burning significant amounts of its ERC-20 leftover coins. Right now, TRX has done both, almost at the same time. They just torched more than half a billion (670,045,551) tokens, but they did so in celebration of having their TronWallet finally appear on the App Store.

This usually wouldn’t be a cause for that much celebration, right? After all, the TRON team is nothing if not experienced and professional, so why is it that a wallet launch requires celebration and attention?

The team started the wallet’s development with a goal of publishing it for both, Android and iOS. Soon after that, they started running into obstacles that eventually led them to a crossroad. As their Medium post says, the team had to make a compromise — either to go down the multi-platform road as planned, or they would have to give up on these early goals and focus on the faster release.

Eventually, they chose to go with the latter, and the TronWallet was created for Android first. In the meanwhile, the team was trying to figure out how to fix the issues with iOS, so that the wallet can become available for Apple users as well.

Soon enough, the 1.0 release for the App Store was ready, although it was only a reduced version of the wallet created for Android. This was all back in July of this year, with the submission finally happening on July 22. This is when the second large issue emerged. The team had to wait for 30 days to have their app reviewed and possibly accepted. This was very discouraging, especially since all of their previous app publications were reviewed and approved much faster. Needless to say, the team was anxiously awaiting the news, hoping that they would be good ones.

The app was finally approved

A month later, Apple finally cleared the wallet and posted it to the App Store. However, the story does not end there, and the team continued to work on improving the app. As of right now, the iOS version of TronWallet will no longer be a reduced copy of what Android has to offer. Instead, it will be it’s equal and will offer numerous features.

Those will include the elimination of the need for signups and logins, local secret encryption with an addition of a PIN, the support for all TRON network operations (minus the ‘create token’ one), the possibility of multiple accounts, push notifications, and more.

Obviously, the team he put a lot of work into trying to please Apple, not to mention that the entire previous month was a nervous one, due to the extended approval period. However, the app went through, the team made it better, and the Apple users now have everything that Android users have. With all of that put together, it is clear why TRON believes that this development is a cause for celebration.

The crypto winter ended and Bitcoin is breaking through the $5000 resistance barrier and leading a general charge in bullishness among cryptocurrencies has seen more positivity in the market than ever before. However, before any talk of a crypto spring should start, we need to look at what happened during the winter.

Many different platforms were either fully released or improved upon significantly. There has been a surge of innovation and the crystallization of ideas. The market isn’t just about crypto trading or bitcoin trading; it has become more about what businesses will leverage blockchain in the best way. Investors need to look at what a coin offers beyond just being a cryptocurrency. What partners does it have, what is the long term plan and is it liquid enough?

Investing in altcoins has never been a better option than right now. The volatility index shows that the market is growing without having to rely on Bitcoin. While Bitcoin still determines and up or down trend, the altcoins do not follow this trend exactly. More and more tokens and coins are surviving and thriving on their own merits rather than riding in Bitcoin’s wake.

The four coins to follow are our pick for the top 4 cryptocurrencies most likely to give you substantial returns by the end of 2019.

2019 Will Be a Big Year for Luxcore

Luxcore

With the recent surge of Bitcoin in the last few weeks, many traders are hoping for a more profitable year than 2018.  Even if that comes to fruition, my advice over the past year remains the same.  Traders must look for companies and projects that offer blockchain solutions with real-world use and complete transparency.  One company that meets both of those requirements is Luxcore (LUX).

What is Luxcore?

Luxcore is a blockchain solutions and services ecosystem that focuses on developing security and privacy products.  The Luxcore platform utilizes the PHI2 algorithm powered blockchain to build a wide variety of product offerings.  One of the platform’s primary goals is to help close the gap between regular consumers and enterprise users by introducing specific use-cases for each group of users.

Exciting Roadmap for 2019

As mentioned earlier, one of the absolute requirements of building a successful blockchain project is to be fully and completely transparent.  Luxcore certainly meets that requirement with the introduction of their most recent roadmap.

The roadmap does a great job of showing which projects are in development, how far along each project is, and the expected completion date of each project.  With this, LUX traders and potentially interested consumers can follow along and monitor the status of projects that they are especially interested in.

Since many crypto projects have inevitably disappointed the market, offering…

Can XRP Break Out of the Falling Wedge?

XRP is the third largest cryptocurrency by market cap, which currently sits at around $13.5 billion. The coin also has a price of $0.325316 at the time of writing, after seeing a significant price correction of 4% in the last 24 hours.

Just like many other cryptocurrencies, XRP has seen massive losses during the 2018 bear market. However, this falling wedge seems to have seen a real breakout in 2019, as the crypto winter started to let go, and a lot of coins saw significant price recoveries.

XRP’s falling wedge was much more difficult to stop, which can be seen on its long-term chart. But, the recent bull runs allowed numerous cryptocurrencies to finally see growth, and XRP is definitely one of them. The charts also show that the coin’s falling wedge has seen a breakout, which is an excellent thing for the future of XRP’s price.

However, for the coin’s price to truly turn and stay bullish, XRP needs to see larger volumes. The experts believe that this is the key for a new rally, one which would allow XRP to reach true recovery.

XRP price performance and predictions

As mentioned, XRP had struggled to start growing even when most other cryptocurrencies were drawn in a number of bull runs. While the coin has been acting the same as others until mid-February, it is clear that the…
