Following up on the assurance of releasing a secret project at the end of last month, Tron Foundation and CEO Justin Sun announced yesterday the release of the much awaited, publicised and well-kept secret system. The system is designed to fortify the foundations of Tron (TRX) and make the digital token more efficient in consideration of the new BitTorrent merger.
The entire Tron ecosystem has been eagerly awaiting the release of the secret project with many of them airing their views about the project as well.
Project Atlas is created to be an integration of the Tron platform and BitTorrent with the Tron management working tirelessly to make sure that the initial computing and updated blueprint for the next three months were complete before the announcement. Further details about when Project Atlas will be working and when it’s going to be officially launched are going to be released by the end of August.
Tron Foundation is currently exploring ways to improve BitTorrent’s protocol with the aid of Tron’s protocol with the intention to make the protocol and its operations efficient lengthening the lifespan of BitTorrent’s swarms.
Project Atlas also seeks to improve BitTorrent’s altruistic culture of being a free service provider that allows uploading, downloading, and seeding for its users. Project Atlas seeks to improve this culture by offering incentives and rewards to users who seed torrents that consent to more resources being deployed into the torrenting ecology.
The new Tron service integrated with BitTorrent will offer users global settlements and online content distribution without intermediaries or content brokers revolutionizing the entertainment industry on a worldwide scale.
BitTorrent users are expected not to see much change with the current services being offered by the p2p company as Tron (TRX) is only interested in improving the current interface to make it more rewarding to users and capable.
Tron Virtual Machine
The Tron Virtual Machine has been created as a Turing complete VM that aids in the expansion of the Tron platform. The initial release of the system intends to facilitate the global community of developers with fully customized blockchain settings that are user-friendly, efficient, easy to optimize, secure, and stable.
According to announcements made by Tron Foundation, the Virtual Machine will be fully compatible with Ethereum to add efficiency while reducing costs and tariffs.
Also, the creation and development of Decentralized applications (DApps) on the platform will be made easier with development tools such as Truffle, Remix, browser wallet plug-ins, besides, Web3.js will be more accessible to users and developers.
The more stable and final version of the VM will be released on August 30th offering more stability and security to users. In a recent blog post, Tron Foundation noted that it was going to optimize the instruction set further as the mainnet continues to take shape.
Also, as the mainnet continues to upgrade accommodating the TVM, Tron Foundation believes that more comprehensive development tools, developer team building activities and game engine building efforts will have to be deployed to ensure operations are more straightforward and easy to navigate on the powerful ecosystem.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.
He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
