Even though the bear market has yet to let go of the crypto space, there are several signs that it is weakening when compared to its strength in 2018. Everyone was hoping to hear the positive news in 2019, and while this may not be a rally such as the one in the second half of 2017, it is certainly a very good start.
One of the best examples that the bear market is slowly losing its grip is TRON (TRX). The coin is known for blowing up in 2018, at least when it comes to popularity, awareness, and development. Meanwhile, the Tron price continued to drop since January 2018, which has only started to change recently, and rather discreetly.
The TRON rally
As mentioned, TRON has been losing value since January 2018, and no matter how successful it became throughout the same year — nothing was affecting its price in a positive way. An argument can be made that TRX value would have dropped even further down if the coin did not have such a successful year, but that is something that cannot be known with certainty at this point.
However, things started to change for TRX in late November, especially around November 27th. This was when TRX hit its lowest point in the year, with its value dropping to $0.011394. After that point, however, TRX started experiencing a discreet rally, which still lasts to this day.
The increase was not a straight line, and it spans over nearly three months, but it is clearly visible when looking at TRX performance. Slight drops followed periodically, but they were always replaced by an even bigger growth. Only a single month after its lowest point, TRX was back up to $0.020282.
Two weeks after that, on January 10th, TRX hit its highest point since mid-August by climbing up to $0.031726. Its price sharply corrected itself by dropping to $0.021 only days later, but immediately after that, it started surging again, until TRX reached $0.0303 only two days ago, on January 27th.
Right now, TRX is experiencing slight drops once again, and it is not alone. The entire market has been losing value in the last two days, with the price of TRON currently being at $0.026393, after a 4% drop in the last 24 hours.
Will the TRX surge continue?
There is no clear answer to this at this point, as there is still little certainty when it comes to predicting the behavior of cryptocurrencies. TRON has been making progress when it comes to its development and projects, that much is known already. It had a lot of success when it comes to the development of its dApps, with many more expected to come in the future.
Meanwhile, TRON’s team, led by the coin’s creator, Justin Sun, continues with the development of Project Atlas which is centered around BitTorrent. Apart from this, TRX has had numerous other successful moves in 2018, and it launched a TestNet, a MainNet, it moved its tokens from Ethereum network to its own, native blockchain, and it entered more partnerships with wallets, exchanges, and companies than anyone can remember.
However, in 2018, its price failed to reflect the coin’s success, as the bear market did not allow it. It is possible that the situation is changing and that TRX is maturing right now. Its growth was certainly slow and steady, filled with ups and downs, instead of a quick rise to the top followed by an equally quick drop as seen in late 2017 and early 2018.
Whether this will continue or not remains to be seen, but considering TRON’s behavior in recent months, its price will likely continue its steady growth that long-term investors have been waiting for.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor. But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.
Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace. The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information. Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed. Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?
While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.
Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors. The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…
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.

Can Libra help the crypto industry to reach new heights?
The market for cryptocurrencies started with the launch of Bitcoin in 2009, and since then, so many cryptocurrencies have been launched that it gets hard to keep track of them. The crypto market has seen massive growth in the past 3-4 years as it started gaining attention from mass media, which helped in this boom.
From the past 2-3 years, several new cryptocurrency projects were launching in the market. Amid all this, the social media giant – Facebook announced the launch of their cryptocurrency platform, and this news got viral like wildfire. The announcement came forward in June, and the upcoming cryptocurrency is known as Libra, and it’ll come with its dedicated wallet called Calibra.
What is Libra?
Libra is a permissioned blockchain-based digital currency which is being developed under the supervision of Facebook’s vice president, David A. Marcus. The cryptocurrency is under development in partnership with an independent, non-profit member Libra Association. Facebook is the second member of the project, and these companies aim to use Facebook’s user base for the promotion of the digital currency when it is launched. The transactions and the cryptocurrency will be managed and cryptographically entrusted by the Libra Association.
Note: Libra Association was established by Facebook to look after the cryptocurrency and the transactions, and it was founded in Geneva, Switzerland.
