Whether you are a crypto investor or just an enthusiast, one of the most common things to observe in the cryptosphere is how certain coins move up and down on the lists. Also, how they continually seek to get the remarkable status of being a top crypto, a denomination because of which many coins fight closely with the deployment of different strategies to improve their performance, and with it, their market value.

We can all agree in this matter, that the market is definitely ruled by Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), but still, there are a few spots available for other coins to occupy, and that is precisely what many tokens intend to do. Among them, we can count for sure Tron (TRX) and NEO, two relatively new cryptocurrencies that seem to be relentless when it comes to strategically designing a plan that may guarantee the traction they need to escalate a little upper in the charts. Let’s see how it goes.

NEO and TRX ambitions

It results clear that the main intentions of these two cryptos are to design a better option than the one that Ethereum provides when it comes to the creation of DApps, a field in which developers are with tied hands somehow. In this sense, although Ethereum definitely has the lead with almost 2000 decentralized applications on its platform, still both of them are making great progress in the development of specific applications of this kind.

So far NEO has 60 decentralized applications in the oven, including Red Pulse, THEKEY, and AdEx. For its part, Tron has a minimum of 9 in development and a bounty program to call for the attention of developers.

NEO and Tron projects

One of the things that these two cryptos have in common is that they have been very outspoken when it comes to announcing their projects. In this sense, NEO recently announced on its Twitter account that the company is currently working on the 3.0 version of their platform.

Tron (TRX) on the other side has announced the strategic partnership with China’s smart toilet giant, MOSHROOM. Tron launched its Virtual Machine on July 31st too, in addition to the revelation of its secret project, Project Atlas. So, clearly, more things are happening for Tron (TRX) compared to NEO.

Current performances of NEO and Tron

At the time of writing, NEO is the crypto number 15th (was on the 11th spot not too long ago) in the market with a value of $21.17 per token, a trading volume of $53,587,145, and a decrease of 4% in price within the last 24 hours. Tron (TRX), on the other hand, now holds three positions above NEO with a price of $0.024, a trading volume of $134,959,748, and a lower decrease of 0.12% in the last 24 hours.

Both Tron and NEO are looking forward to becoming the next top 10 of the market, and truth be told, both have great chances of making this a reality with the exciting projects on development and the expansion of DApps opportunities. Tron is leading the way currently, no doubt, but this was the case with NEO just a couple of weeks ago (was ahead of the Tronix). It is just a matter of time before any of them manage to make it to the top. So stay tuned!

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
