How Tron’s new Mainnet is boosting mass TRX adoption already

Before I start explaining how Tron (TRX) Mainnet, Odyssey, is enhancing the chances of Tron adoption already, I need to explain some crucial thoughts with you. That’s, the whole cryptocurrency experience is still in its initial stages. Take fiat currencies as an example: the US Dollar or the Euro do not need a fan base. Lots of people use them because they are accepted and considered to be stable currencies by everybody in the world. That’s because they are very well established and backed by several governments in the world and by users as a default.

Crypto coins are different. No government backs them up, and the general public is either ignorant on the subject or distrustful, and no cryptocurrency in the cryptosphere so far (not even Bitcoin) is so well established. That means that every digital asset needs a user base that makes it relevant. Also, the more a coin is used, the more its demand increases thus performing better in trades and exchanges.

In other words, every crypto coin’s success starts with its users and community members buying tokens and using them for digital transactions. If this doesn’t happen, that project or currency can never take off. That’s why it’s been quite impressive to see how Tron’s Tronix (TRX) fans and believers have been at the forefront in letting the world know that Tron’s new Main Net and new autonomous coins have turned some very high expectations into reality. At this point, Tron’s network is faster and cheaper than any other (except Ripplenet and XRP) so it seems that Justin Sun is delivering on the very bold promises he made before the launch.

Justin Sun himself was proud to retweet something by a user called @Kev_TRX_4_Life who wanted to share with the world how quickly he could do a Binance to TRX transaction. He quoted delivery times and prices. Three and a half minutes for TRX to be delivered into his wallet from Binance, at the cost of 0.1 TRX which is equivalent to a thousandth of a USD cent. Sending XRP back to Binance took two minutes. That’s indeed quite fast and cheap.

Some other users used the chance and the general euphoria to remind and explain to other users about the coin burn. Haven’t heard about it? Ok, let me tell you. For every transaction that is done using the Tronix token some of the TRX supply will be burnt (which means it will be withdrawn from the market permanently thus diminishing supply and increasing demand.)

It will work like this. Every time a new account is created over the Tron Main Net, 0.1 TRX will get burned; every single transaction will burn 0.001 TRX. The apparent consequence is that the more Tron users there are, and the more users that run Dapps over Tron, the more TRX tokens will be burned. So in Tron’s basic economics the success in expanding the project’s user base brings the supply down thus keeping prices high.

Tron has shown to have a very loyal and excited user base. They seem to be quite happy with Tron’s new environment and are supporting it to death and screaming it to the world. They are indeed adopting the cryptocurrency, using it and trading it, and this is a sign that both the Tron foundation and Tron’s users understand the mechanics in cryptocurrencies and they’re getting the fundamentals correctly.

This all promises a great future (and mass adoption in real-world shortly) for the project, the cryptocurrency, and the community.

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.

KaratGold Background

KaratGold Coin is a cryptocurrency developed by the reputable German company Karatbars International, which maintains a leading position in the market of small gold items and investments. The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks.

ICTE May Bring About Sweeping Changes for Cryptocurrency Exchanges

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…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

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…
