Trading Markets around the world are starting to be dominated by Cryptocurrency trading. Currently, there is an excess of over 1800 cryptocurrencies and blockchain related projects in the world at the moment, and TRON (TRX) is just one of them.

TRON or TRX was developed on the blockchain network as a decentralized ledger protocol, capable of building an entertainment framework for free content distribution around the world. Like many other projects, it uses the decentralized distributed ledger system, where users can publish, store and own data.  A user can also choose to distribute content in an autonomous decentralized form. As of 19/03/2018, TRON is ranked 15th according to Coinmarketcap, with a total market cap of $2,058,589,056 USD With a total supply of 100,000,000,000 TRX Tokens.

Current Market Scenario of TRON

The Cryptocurrency market, on the whole, is very volatile in nature, with investor sentiments taking precedence over other price movement factors. Thus it comes as no surprise, that TRON, just like the majority of cryptocurrencies have experienced torrid times recently. The market, on the whole, is recovering from a major slump which saw most cryptocurrencies depreciating in value by about 50%. This came after the Cryptocurrency market reached all-time highs during December 2017. This year, however, saw the introduction of fears of regulations which negatively impacted investor sentiments. Thus, even though TRON reached a value of $0.30 in January, its value nose-dived till it hit rock bottom recently at $0.03. However, at the time of writing, the future prospects are looking bright for TRON. This is fuelled by the announcement of four events which are slated to take place around 31st March.

The value of TRON has seen a positive climb after some recent positive events. TRX Tokens got listed on both Bittrex and the Upbit Exchange recently, followed by TRX listings on 6 additional crypto-exchanges around the world. This certainly had a positive impact on TRX prices, which bumped up to $ 16,752,047,709 on January 05th of this year, following the above announcements.

Predicted Rise Due to Slated Events

As shown above, positive news relating to the coin has a definite positive impact on price levels. The team behind TRON have confirmed about four events that are scheduled to take place on March 31st.  The news of this event can be considered a positive gesture in the crypto-community and can help push price levels up again. The four events are discussed in brief below.

  1. First Beta Launch: It was announced that on March 3st, TRON would unveil the first beta version of EXODUS, which is set to offer more advantages as compared to any existing blockchain systems.  One of the highlights of the release is expected to be the fast transaction processing speeds, with Exodus being able to process 1,000 transactions per second, which in turn lowers transaction fees.  This release is also expected to include the TRON Virtual Machine, a tool that enables small smart contracts to be created in various programming languages along with several monitoring tools.
  2. Mainnet Launch: As announced before, TRON’s Mainnet Launch is scheduled for a May 1 release. TRON holders everywhere are thus advised to hold on to their tokens as the mainnet will separate TRON from Ethereum. As a result, the lower costs are expected to fuel the adaptability of TRON around the world and many businesses are expected to partner with TRON in the near future. Scalability on the TRON network will be infinite, as TRX trading volumes on exchanges increase.
  3. Test Net launch: Before the Mainnet launch, however, the TRON test net launch is slated for March 31st. The test net is expected to open new avenues for running a full node, as well as allowing the deployment of customized digital assets. As the test net is expected to bear all the functions of a basic blockchain, including data checking, it will enable sending and receiving of transactions as well as voting.
  4. Coin Burn: TRON Coin Burn is slated to happen around March 31st. As TRON works on the principle of “Proof-of-Burn”, coin burning is required. The consensus algorithm requires every miner on the network to provide proof of these coin burns. This is done by sending the coins to a verifiable and unsuspendable wallet and does not consume any resources besides the actual “burning” of tokens.  Holders do not lose any coins. However, the degree of scarcity experienced by users after the coin burn is the main driving force behind increasing the value of the coin.

Final Thoughts

As highlighted earlier, the Dev team behind TRON aims for the TRX tokens to be a valuable asset in the Cryptocurrency industry by increasing the ability to develop more smart contracts. The aforementioned events certainly will have a positive impact on price levels. Thus in spite of the fact that TRX price levels have decreased enormously since the beginning of the new year, TRON holders are still advised to hold on to their tokens to gain from future price bursts.

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…

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…

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.
