Tron (TRX), one of the substantial blockchain based operating system and top 10 cryptocurrencies in the world launched their Main Net yesterday without any hitches or glitches. The migration of Tron’s network from Ethereum’s blockchain to its resident blockchain has been the most talked about event inside the cryptocurrency community. Right after the Main Net launch, Justin Sun, the founder of Tron, announced compensation for anyone who will be able to find any security hole in the Main Net.
Posting on his Twitter account, Justin revealed a huge reward to anyone in the general public or from the developer’s community who will find any erroneous coding in their Main Net. With the migration set to take place on 25th June, everyone is encouraged to take part in the reward program that will end on 25th June.
Justin Sun tweeted:

By doing this, Tron will be able to detect and fix issues if any is found. This smart move from the founder and the management is to deploy a proper firewall that will prevent future hitches and glitches in the Tron system.
Tron is not taking any chances with its new blockchain and is investing big money in ensuring their Main Net is safe and secure unlike EOS, who offered a $10,000 bounty for any critical bug that has the potential of risking their main net launch on June 2.
Some bugs could be small, pose no risk, easy to solve, and does not directly affect the network entirety. However, if you manage to spot a huge error that might allow hackers to take advantage of the loophole to steal big amounts of TRX coins, this is worth the bounty payment of $10 million ($10,000,000).
Justin’s Personal Invitation
Tron’s CEO personally invited all interested parties in joining the crypto’s Independence by downloading the Odyssey V2.0, Tron’s main net, on GitHub. It is also an exceptional time for any developer who wants to prove their skills are worth $100K. In retrospect, it only demands a few days of sitting in front of your pc and going through a bunch of codes.

It seems Justin Sun learned a lot from the trouble Ethereum faced with the EOS case where glitches in Ethereum’s smart contracts got around 600,000 ETH of user funds frozen in the Parity Wallet platform. This was discovered last year.
The entire Tron foundation, management, and Justin Sun can be lauded for a job well done for successfully launching the Main Net without any technical difficulties and going even ahead to invite computer geeks to tinker with their system in a show of confidence in their new blockchain.
What’s next for Tron?
At present, Tron (TRX) is trading at $0.057, a 5.51% decrease in last 24 hours. So, Tron is still on its losing trajectory in a market that either is not moving upwards as of now. Either way, experts are predicting an upsurge of value shortly after the Main Net settles down. It is just a matter of time before we see this happens.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor. But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.
Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace. The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information. Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed. Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?
While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.
Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors. The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…
CoinFlip Scores Big with BRD Wallet Partnership
As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible. While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not. The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above. In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country. Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.
In early October, CoinFlip announced on its Twitter that it had officially partnered with BRD Wallet to re-introduce their crypto ATM map. Now, BRD wallet users will be able to locate their nearest CoinFlip ATM and receive a 10% discount for both buys and sells. BRD brand awareness is growing quickly within the crypto community thanks to its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit. The team strongly believes in the value of financial freedom and independence, and want to empower people across the world by leveraging the possibilities that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies provide.

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…
