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.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

DEXes

While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
