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!

Why You Should Hodl Stellar (XLM)

The crypto market is rich with hundreds, and even thousands of different projects at this point, and separating valuable ones from those that are destined to slowly fade away can be tricky. However, even the biggest skeptics believe that Stellar is a coin that is here to stay.

XLM was first launched in 2014, and for a long time now, it has been among the top 10 cryptos by market cap. It is an open-source, decentralized protocol that allows users to send fiat currencies by using cryptocurrency as a method of transport. In a lot of ways, it is very similar to XRP. However, the biggest difference is that Stellar aims to offer its services to regular people, while XRP is more interested in working with banks and financial institutions.

The application requesting that VanExk SolidX BTC fund get s listed on Cboe BZx Exchange that was published on July 2nd needs to be given order by the commission within 180 days. Originally, the deadline for doing so was December 29th. However, the SEC decided to extend the period for another 60 days, effectively moving it to February 27th.

The SEC stated that designating a longer period for making a decision was found appropriate, as more time is needed in order to properly consider the rule change.

Cryptocurrencies need a sufficient monitoring mechanism, claims SEC chairman

Recent reports claim that the SEC received over 1,600 comments after requesting the public opinion regarding the ETF applications issue. In the past, the SEC rejected many such applications, some of which were even submitted by SolidX itself. In addition, they also rejected the applications submitted by Gemini, the exchange owned by Winklevoss twins. Brothers were attempting to gain ETF approval ever since 2013, although to no avail.

Other applications were also submitted by Direxion, ProShares, as well as GraniteShares. The SEC rejected them…
