TRON is one of those rare cryptocurrencies that have been executing nearly everything according to plan since the very moment of introduction to this gargantuan cryptocurrency market. Even before TRON was tokenized in September 2017, the TRX team had published a comprehensive whitepaper where they discussed the plans of this currency in the next few years to minuscule details. This transparency is, de facto, one of the most prominent reasons behind its meteoric rise as the traders across the globe are always aware of what is currently going on with this coin. This feature invariably makes this cryptocurrency a much safer option to invest rather than the capricious coins like Bitcoin.

From the very beginning, TRON team has been making various technical developments incessantly for the convenience of their users in accessing various entertainment contents with ease form any corner of the world. TRX is currently in its Odyssey2 phase after the ceremonious Mainnet launch on 31st May of this year. Here, you would find out the latest developments that occurred in the past week and how it would impact the future of TRX holders.

Major Technical Developments:

TRON’s development team constantly works on the three specific entities of its technical architecture and make changes accordingly. As per the last weekly report that covered the events from the 2nd to the 8th of June, 2018, quite a few upgrades have been successfully implemented in TRON’s structure, consensus, and wallet.

  • Structural Updates: The RPC (Remote Procedure Call) interface has been causing some problems inside TRON’s structure by consuming too much resource. Last week, this interface was successfully removed without any undesirable consequence which effectively reduced the inordinate consumption of a valuable resource. The team is currently working on the transaction duplicate check procedure for the storage layer along with the development of Hot-standby function. Furthermore, the incessant debugging and stress test process are in progress as well.
  • Consensus Updates: The entire consensus paradigm underwent a few conspicuous changes in the past week for the overall improvement of the system. One of the major notable additions to the consensus is the successful implementation of multiple payment methods. The newly designed consensus is likely to be more user-friendly and convenient to the TRX holders around the world. Also, the team is currently working tirelessly on a few more projects such as keeping track of the voting time during the maintenance period and ameliorating the relevant documents.
  • Wallet Updates: TRON wallet underwent some major changes during the previous week. The wallet key store that the development team had been working on for quite a few weeks was finally tested and supported on the TRON ecosystem without causing any predicament. Besides this, the work on the optimization function of browser wallets is still in progress. Notably, the debugging process of the wallet is not mentioned in this week’s report which bespeaks that all the compilation error issues had been taken care of permanently.

Major Community Updates:

After the mainnet launch, TRON Super Representative Election seems to have taken the center stage. Many companies and organizations across the globe have been enlisting themselves for several weeks to take part in this election. The last week was not an exception as well. The major organizations that have included their names in the past week include:

  • Infinity Stones: A silicon valley based company that specializes in offering cloud management services along with various security solutions for blockchain protocols. The core team of this company consists of people with veritably strong academic background with degrees from renowned institutions. The team also consists of employees who previously worked for Google. This company was enlisted on the 2nd of June.

  • Community Node: A cloud-based node that focuses on reliability and uptime. Community Node made their announcement on the 3rd of June.

Besides these organizations, Charity Compassion, D2F, and many others are running for this election which is about to take place shortly.

Acquiring Ownership of BitTorrent:

When it comes to entertainment, Torrent websites have a considerable impact on the global entertainment contents. On June 11, software company BitTorrent Inc. was officially sold to the CEO of TRON, Justin Sun. Speculators are expecting a stark rise in TRON’s price after this phenomenon.

Current State of TRON:

As of 12th June 2018, TRON holds the 10th position on Coinmarketcap with a market capitalization of approximately 3.1 billion and a price nearly equivalent to $0.048. As per the price chart for the past 24 hours, the trend is discernably upward.

Final Thoughts:

TRON has been one of the best performing coins since the beginning of this year and with continuous developments, this coin now has an even stronger influence on the cryptocurrency market. So, if this coin is able to justify its whitepaper in its actions, TRX holders can expect a secure and lucrative future.

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.
