Justin Sun, the CEO and founder of Tron Foundation, has told developers to shift to the Tron blockchain instead of utilizing dApps on the Ethereum blockchain.
A developer by the name of Afri Schoedon had tweeted that the Ethereum network was at full capacity, and Sun was responding to this tweet.
Yes! Please stop deploying d-apps to Ethereum and migrate to #TRON network immediately! We are 100x faster than #ETH and fully compatible with #ethereum. We 100% guarantee better user experience! #TRX $TRX https://t.co/gRCtOC0rIS
— Justin Sun???? (@justinsuntron) September 24, 2018
Specifically, he urged the cryptocurrency developer community to move to use “$ETC, or $POA,” although, clearly, Justin Sun used it as an opportunity to endorse his very own project.
Mr. Schoedon’s statement could be verified by concerning, which monitors blockchain activity worldwide, and confirmed that there were almost a staggering 60,000 transactions on the ethereum blockchain.
The co-founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, countered that there are Dapps that could undergo gas utilization optimization to combat this.
It goes without saying that this is clearly a self-serving statement, considering Buterin helped to create ethereum, which like most cryptocurrencies – including Tron (TRX) – has decreased tremendously in terms of market capitalization this year.
This all is in the keeping of Justin Sun trumpeting his Tron Virtual Machine as a new tool for developers, pointing out that it is completely compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine.
During the launch, he had boasted that developers could move the projects to the TVM (Tron Virtual Machine) for “almost free” and believed that this was a milestone for the Tron ecosystem, which would help bring massive value to the Tron project and the cryptocurrency sector in general.
It is also important to note that this isn’t the first time that Sun has been tried to boast about his project while pointing out the flaws of another.
However, the last time that this happened it could be argued that the Twitter feud between Justin Sun and Charlie Lee (creator of Litecoin) started with Charlie Lee.
Mr. Lee coyly referred to the movie “Tron” and gave his opinion on the movie, stating that people “kept asking his opinion about it,” although clearly, people were more interested in knowing about his opinion about the Justin Sun-led project. He jabbed the project, by stating that it was “extremely hyped without a lot of substance.”
Although he walked back with the statement, by stating that he did not know a lot about the project, many believed that his statement was clear. Mr. Sun responded that he “loved” Charlie Lee and Litecoin, and that it was a pity that he had sold all of his litecoin, referencing Lee’s controversial decision to sell his personal Litecoin holdings.
He also pointed out that he had “locked up all $TRX until 2020” and pointed out that this is because he was wholly confident in the project, a clear indication that Sun thought Lee had stopped believing in Litecoin when he sold it.

What else #TRONICS

With regards to this latest comparison – there are critics of Tron that still believe that Tron is nowhere near as scalable or secure as Ethereum, and thus will never indeed be a project with as much value as its competitor.
Others believe that TRX is destined to be one of the most important coins in cryptocurrency and that its climb to a top 10 market capitalization is all but inevitable. Time will tell whether Mr. Sun will ultimately be able to deliver on his promises and whether the project could eventually surpass ethereum.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.
He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
Mr. Yamagata has been…
