New TRON Rumor Hints At Potential Partnership With Baidu

While TRON has made some game-changing moves throughout 2018, it seems that this coin is still not done with shocking announcements. According to a recent statement by its founder, Justin Sun, TRON might be about to enter its biggest partnership yet. This time, the popular coin is targeting an unnamed company worth tens of billions of dollars.

As soon as this announcement was published, the entire crypto community started speculating regarding the company’s identity. While still unconfirmed, many seem certain that the mysterious giant is none other than one of China’s largest IT firms — Baidu.

Baidu is among the largest companies in China, and many tend to call it Chinese Google. The company holds control over 66% of all internet searches. In fact, its closest competitor holds only a quarter of this amount.

What does this mean for TRON?

As mentioned, TRON has managed to make a huge amount of progress throughout 2018, which was mostly bearish up to this point. Not only did TRON managed to launch its MainNet and purchased BitTorrent, announced numerous projects, entered more partnership than anyone can count and has started bringing games to the blockchain.

While pretty amazing, all of these feats might become lesser achievements when compared to partnering up with Baidu. Many expect that this move will launch TRON to the moon, and quite possibly start a bull run that everyone has been waiting for since January 2018.

Baidu itself is a huge and rich company, and it even expressed interest in blockchain technology in its white paper published in September. If it were to partner up with TRON, this cryptocurrency would definitely deserve it. Its recent accomplishments have proven that TRON’s blockchain is faster and cheaper than pretty much any other.

While the bear market impacted its price and market cap so much that TRON still cannot enter the top 10 cryptocurrencies, a partnership like this will definitely improve its situation. Right now, TRON’s value is at $0.024646, with an increase of 1.61% in the last 24 hours.

However, this is nowhere near its full potential, or even its all-time high of $0.25 that it reached in January. While TRON’s highest price is only a quarter of $1, many believe that TRX could hit a lot higher after all that it managed to accomplish during 2018. With that in mind, the entire crypto community expects this partnership to pave the way for TRON in 2019. All that the coin needs now is for this partnership to be confirmed. When and if it does, investors expect that TRON will skyrocket like never before.

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.
