Despite many crypto investors’ hopes, the start of 2019 did not bring a new rally, nor did the crypto market manage to shake off the bear grip which caused a tremendous price drop in the past year. In fact, the market continues to drop even now. In the past month, the total crypto market value lost around $27 billion, placing it to only $111 billion right now.

However, while nearly all coins are trading in the red, with their charts showing a continuous drop — TRON (TRX) is one of a very few obvious exceptions. In fact, while nearly every other crypto experiences losses, TRON managed to grow by around 100% in five weeks, starting with December 17th.

Before it started seeing gains, TRX price was at around $0.127. However, within only five weeks, TRX managed to climb to around $0.025, according to TradingView. While this is not much when compared to large cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin which move up and down by hundreds of dollars, it is still a huge move for TRX, whose value is still only a fraction of a dollar.

Why did TRON price grow?

One of the obvious questions right now is — why did it happen? After all, TRON went through an entire 2018, with countless partnerships, projects, and other new developments without its price being affected in any significant way. So, why now?

The reason is the recent launch of BitTorrent Token (BTT). BTT is to be native crypto of the BitTorrent’s own ecosystem, and it has been in the works ever since TRON purchased BitTorrent in mid-2018. A little over a week ago, BTT was launched on Binance Launchpad, an initiative that is supposed to launch one coin per month and expose it to millions of Binance’s users.

The response was extremely positive, but also quite unexpected, and the entire token sale was finished after only 18 minutes, even after the platform had issues due to a large number of interested investors.

The launch has seen the sale of 23.76 billion BTT coins which went to holders of Binance Coin (BNB), as well as another 35.64 billion BTT coins which were distributed to TRON holders.

The demand for BTT surprised everyone, although it was a positive surprise. However, it also had quite an impact on TRON’s growth and future development, as it can already be seen from the increase in TRX value.

Another thing to remember is that BitTorrent has millions of users, which is something that no dApp has managed to achieve so far. Despite there being multiple projects dedicated to the creation of smart contracts and dApps, such as Ethereum, EOS, and even TRON itself — not one of them managed to attract enough users to reach the popularity of BitTorrent.

According to TRON’s founder, Justin Sun, there are currently around 1 billion devices in the BitTorrent ecosystem. Due to the number of available BTT coins, that is only around 990 BTT per device, which is likely to allow BTT price to grow as well. The big question now is how many of those users are actually going to want to use BTT.

If it turns out that BTT complicates the use of BitTorrent, this may have negative consequences on the coin, at least when it comes to its adoption by BitTorrent users. Those who use BitTorrent only from time to time for casual file download might not be interested in going to exchanges, making accounts, and learning how to trade crypto just because they can.

Meanwhile, all those who do decide to use the coin will help increase TRON’s own ecosystem, with all of the transactions going through its blockchain network. While it is not clear how many users will opt to do so, it is likely that TRON will have to handle millions of additional requests, with many of them likely being made regularly.

However, TRON’s developers did have scalability in mind since the launch of the blockchain. As a result, it is possible that TRON’s blockchain will successfully handle the requests, in which case all that remains is to see how its price is going to behave.

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.

We are now halfway through 2019, and the situation in the crypto space is better than ever in the past year. Numerous cryptos are seeing large gains, often cut by brief periods of stagnation or small corrections, but the overall sentiment is obviously bullish.

Bitcoin sits way above the $8k mark, and while it struggles to go beyond $8,700, it is still trying to grow. Investors and analysts are quite bullish regarding the foreseeable future, and a lot of altcoins are expected to follow BTC in this regard. However, today, we would like to talk about one particular altcoin — TRON (TRX) — as well as why it is likely to go big in June.

TRON’s progress so far

As many people in and out of TRON community know, TRX is not a project that often sits still. It is rich with announcements, particularly when it comes to his CEO, Justin Sun, whose enthusiastic tweets often seem like hype building to many.

However, TRON made some massive progress in 2018, which was the worst year cryptocurrencies have ever seen. This is not something that can be achieved through hype alone, and the project needs to have true quality and value in order to see such massive development in the middle of the longest and harshest crypto winter in…

IOTA (MIOTA) Pending Update Might Bring Huge Gains in Days to Come

IOTA

The crypto space is erupting once again, and if popular predictions are correct — the growth is only starting. However, in the vast sea of altcoins that hold the massive potential to go big in the future, we would like to set IOTA aside as one of the coins that might blow up quite soon.

As always, there are no guarantees of this, as the crypto space still lacks regulations, and remains highly volatile. To see proof of this, all you need to do is look at Bitcoin, which goes up by $1,000 within a day, only to slowly drop by $700 in the following week, and then repeat the process. In other words, there is still a lot of uncertainty regarding any project, and that includes IOTA.

However, even with all of that in mind, many are quite optimistic about this particular project, especially after a recent announcement. The announcement in question indicates that IOTA is about to see a massive upgrade. In most cases, this would be more than enough of a reason to expect the coin to start performing better. But, in IOTA’s case, this is nearly a guarantee that it will.

The update is believed to carry a lot of fixes for a lot of problems that traders and investors have been reporting for a while. No crypto is perfect, and since IOTA is…
