Correlation Between Gaming and Blockchain Technology
The idea of collaboration between Gaming and blockchain technology have stirred the gaming market. Cryptocurrencies have fuelled gamers’ enthusiasm by offering means to buy in-game items using digital tokens. The option or feature of buying in-game items with real money has been there for quite some time but due to its risky nature, a huge number of alert gamers have avoided it. This flaw formed due to the duplicators, scammers have long attracted blockchain enthusiasts. With the help of blockchain, users can retain ownership of in-game items and through transparently secure transactions, blockchain could perfect the feature completely.
- Direct Advantages of the Partnership
In this scenario, TRON has accelerated the revolution by announcing a strategic partnership with BitGuild which is in the blockchain gaming industry. It’s owned by gaming and cryptocurrency expert Jared, the founder of gaming platform ‘Reality Squared Games’ and live video game streaming platform ‘Livestar’ (in the year of 2016). Jared has been a dedicated virtual currency and gaming aficionado since 2009 when he founded the first virtual currency consulting firm called ‘Niubility’ in 2009. Through this daring partnership, TRON has made a concrete standing in the entertainment world through online gaming territory.
- The Aim of the Collaboration
The aim is to provide freedom to the entertainment industry from the influence of middleman who exists between a gaming artist and player whilst transference of digital assets. This new team-up between TRON and BitGuild is supposed to allow gamers buy in-game items with TRONix(TRX) safely and get back the ownership of its use in game worlds however they please. Now, it’s possible for a user to receive an epic item/loot in the game and then either transfer it to some other user or keep it saved if they wish so that TRON’s blockchain technology will eliminate even the remote chances of fraud, misuse, and scams.
- About TRON and BitGuild
According to TRON’s founder and CEO, Justin Sun, “the company has always prioritized online gaming at the core of online development” and it became evident when they declared the upcoming blockchain projects in cooperation with BitGuild. TRON has always been in the limelight owing to its stable and incessant growth. The currency is ranked as 15th top digital currency in the market according to Coinmarketcap.com and its total market cap is nearly $3.4 Billion while it’s total circulating supply rests at 66 Billion TRX as per the Coinmarketcap data at the time of writing this article. (16th March 2018)
- TRON’s Aim
TRON’s blockchain based protocol is all set to create an independent content entertainment system with the aid of its unique distributed storage technology. The former chief representative for Greater China of Ripple, Justin Sun is smartly transforming TRON’s goals from whitepaper to real events. With their recent Main net launch update dubbed as ‘Exodus’, the company has cleared their target of becoming one of the most formidable digital currency in the market ruled by Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple.
- What to Expect from TRON and BitGuild?
Through this partnership, BitGuild is about to offer exclusive in-game assets to the TRON community as limited edition set. These assets can be purchased by TRX and thus represent TRON brand. At the instant of purchase, the items will be directly sent to the player’s digital wallet using blockchain technology and finish a completely secure digital transaction. But it’s different from traditional exchanges and blockchain solutions such as DMarket according to BitGuild’s founder Jared Psigoda. In his own words; “The current real money trade websites allow gamers to purchase the ‘right to use an item’ and not the item itself. There’s no tokenization of the item taking place on blockchain which gives way to frauds and scams to sneak in. But with the application of blockchain, we can reverse the volatility of in-game resources at present”. BitGuild recently announced its ICO that’s slated for April during which users can buy The BitGuild token called PLAT.
- Closing Thoughts
By teaming up with the gaming-veteran team of BitGuild, TRON expects to turn gears in today’s excessively bearish cryptocurrency market. It is safe to say that both TRON and BitGuild expect to broaden the horizons of blockchain online gaming platform via this partnership. Although being a volatile digital asset that is subjected to market risks, TRX is experiencing a slant at present when its total market cap has come to $1.9. Therefore, it is immature to comment on how this collaboration will reflect on the days to come.

CoinFlip Scores Big with BRD Wallet Partnership
As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible. While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not. The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above. In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country. Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.
In early October, CoinFlip announced on its Twitter that it had officially partnered with BRD Wallet to re-introduce their crypto ATM map. Now, BRD wallet users will be able to locate their nearest CoinFlip ATM and receive a 10% discount for both buys and sells. BRD brand awareness is growing quickly within the crypto community thanks to its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity
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…
Hodium Presents a Compelling Opportunity for Outsized Investment Returns
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…
