Tron (TRX) wants you to join them and support Net Neutrality

From the very beginning, Tron has been a project with a mission. Just as Ripple’s objective is to make blockchain technology the tool around which all the international payments in the world are settled quickly, cheaply, safely, Tron (TRX) aims to use the blockchain so that the whole of the internet becomes decentralized.

Neutrality means that no single corporation or authority (Comcast, Google, AT&T, Verizon, Telmex, Microsoft, Facebook, and many others) is able to decide whether a packet of information is more important (or urgent) to deliver that some other packet. Your ISP should treat every information packet in a democratic, egalitarian way so that everybody gets the same services, whatever you’re doing with it.

Because of recent lobbying by big corporations in the US Congress, Net Neutrality is in danger these days and that worries Tron (as it should worry you, and everybody else).

Since Tron wants to decentralize the web via blockchain technology, neutrality in the web is a necessary condition. That’s why Tron has taken a public stand in defending net neutrality by donating $10,000.00 to the Donatefornetneutrality.com website.

Tron believes in upholding neutrality. It’s analog to freedom of speech, independence, and freedom in the digital world. It’s under siege by American politicians and Tron is inviting everybody to take a stand on this issue and support the fight for neutrality by donating to that same website.

This is not just about Tron’s ambition to decentralize the web, but it matters for all of us. Keeping neutrality alive is the only way we all have to make sure that the internet remains free and doesn’t become a kind of digital dictatorial regime in which the big corporations in telecom end up deciding everything that happens with every user in the world.

This is a controversial issue, of course. Many internet users think that fast internet connections should be more valuable than slow ones. That high-quality content should have more value. The problem here is, who is going to decide what high-quality is? It won’t be users, universities or scientists. It will be Google, or Youtube, or Facebook, or Microsoft.

The DonateForNetNeutrality website aims to raise $100,000.00 to fund the fight for net neutrality. They currently have $38,328.00, and every donation you make will be doubled by their sponsors. You can even make donations in cryptocurrencies.

The point in this campaign is to overrule the latest FCC ruling that killed net neutrality, only a few months ago. There is a mechanism called “Congressional Review Act” (CRA) which allows reversing previous decisions.

The problem is that time is running out and if this reversal doesn’t happen quickly, it could become permanent. That would make everything much harder to correct in the future. Making this happen will need to get the attention of some key lawmakers who are facing difficult races so that they start listening to their constituents.

  • This is what happens with the money you donate for this cause:
  • Congressmen and women get millions of calls, emails, tweets.
  • It finances crowdfunded billboards, newspaper ads, and online ads.
  • Organize local actions and events.

Keep this in mind: while Tron is not based in the US, the organization understands that lack of neutrality is going to affect every internet user around the world and, especially, the crypto verse in which decentralization and democracy are core values. Tron’s heart is in the right place. Let’s try and follow suit.

Cryptocurrency traders have enjoyed a Bitcoin moon shot during the past few months.  Those gains have created a much more enjoyable environment for crypto bulls.  Whether it’s a temporary or permanent increase remains to be seen but hitting the 10,000 level has put everyone in a better mood.  Unfortunately, altcoins have not had experienced the same type of gains and are lagging significantly behind Bitcoin.

I’ve written articles in the past year that there is at least a decent chance that many altcoins won’t survive the current environment.  The ones that do will do so because they created a platform that has real world usage.  After spending countless hours researching many of the existing altcoins, I’ve yet to see a company that is more promising than Encrypgen (DNA).

Encrypgen Background Information

Encrypgen is a genomic blockchain network that provides customers and partners with best-in-class, next generation, blockchain security for protecting, sharing and re-marketing genomic data. This creates a fair marketplace for a person’s DNA that can be stored privately and sold (if a person wishes to do that). A person’s DNA can also be shared privately and securely with their physician for their personalized care.

Typically, people can send their DNA off to a lab to find out who they are and where they come from. As fun as that might sound, there is a significant security problem…

Investors Beware: Another Large Bitcoin Crash Might Be Coming

Bitcoin crash

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…
