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!

How is the Crypto Market Changing?

It has been around a month and a half since the start of 2019, and there are already some pretty obvious changes in the way the crypto market operates, especially when compared to the last year. Early 2018 was almost a complete opposite. The previous year started with cryptocurrencies at their strongest, only to see them crashing down after a few weeks. Back then, the ICO model was still quite strong, and so was the hype surrounding the crypto space. New investors kept entering the space, and new startups emerged with their tokens ready to be sold.

As the year progressed, things started to change. The prices continued to drop, the ICO model went down from around $1.4 billion in raised funds at the beginning of the year to only $100 million in the last month.

The ICO model lost investors’ trust, as many of the projects turned out to be either too weak to survive after the crypto winter struck, or scams which tricked investors out of their money and disappeared. Not to mention that the increase in ICOs popularity attracted the regulators who cracked down on them pretty hard, especially in the US.

With all of that happening, it is of a small surprise that the investors started giving up on ICOs, especially with the constant drops in prices which saw even the largest coins…

Cryptocurrencies – a term which has become incredibly prominent in the mainstream media during recent years due to the proliferation of Bitcoin millionaires. As a result, the new form of currency has earned an almost infamous status. However, as with any major step forward, there is still much confusion regarding the use of cryptocurrencies, what different types of innovative electronic cash exist and what they might mean for the future.

We’re putting all of this to rest as we explain what each of the leading cryptocurrencies can do.

Bitcoin

The most popular form of cryptocurrency, Bitcoin was first thought up in 2008 by the elusive and still unknown creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, who published the whitepaper online.

It took almost a decade for the cryptocurrency to reach its peak, but in December 2017 a single Bitcoin roughly exchanged for the price of $17,000, meaning anyone who held a substantial amount of the electronic cash became significantly wealthy.

In its early years, the cryptocurrency was strictly used as an alternative for cash transactions, and predominantly for trading goods and services. However as it has increased in popularity, its range of uses has also widened, now deployed for a variety of purposes including acting as collateral for investments at merchant banks, a direct debit for subscriptions services and most notably for sports betting.

New DoJ Ruling May Cripple Gambling dApps

A new decision made by the US Justice Department has expanded restrictions regarding online gambling in the US affecting gambling dApps. While the Federal Wire Act of 1961 prohibited online gambling regarding sports since 2011, the new decision expanded on this, and it now includes all forms of internet gambling. Unfortunately for many, this now also includes cryptocurrencies.

The new decision came due to considerable difficulties when it comes to guaranteeing that only interstate betting will take place and that payments will not be routed via different states.

The new announcement was explained in a 23-page-long opinion issued by the Department of Justice’s legal team, which pointed out that the 2011 decision misinterpreted the law. According to that decision, transferring funds was to be considered a violation, but data transfers were not included. By exploiting this oversight, it was possible for gamblers to turn to internet gambling. Unsurprisingly, many have realized this early on, including startups, as well as large, established firms. This, of course, also included cryptocurrency companies as well.
