Tron is one of the biggest blockchain platforms in the market today. Through the dedication and hard work of Tron Foundation and its CEO, Justin Sun, it has become a renowned digital asset. Just a year ago, Tron was a conceptualized platform, but with lots of projects such as TVM, ‘Project Atlas,’ and Tronscan, it is set to take over the world.
Tron has achieved yet another success as its network has expanded. The fully decentralized-focused blockchain network account surpassed 400k mark just a couple of days ago, on 26th September 2018.
Before this announcement was made, it is important to note that Tron surpassed EOS network account and increased to more than 300,000 earlier on; now, Tron has even moved up and surpassed 400,000 mark. Following is a snapshot from Tronscan.org showing the number of accounts on the Tron network at the time of press.
Coming back to Tron leaving EOS behind, Justin Sun had earlier revealed that Tron would surpass EOS network which has about 333,970 network account, at the end of the third quarter of the year during the launch of Tron’s Virtual Machine (TVM). That’s already done now, as stated above.
Also, Tron has experienced an increase in its daily transactions. It is necessary to also note that at the beginning of this month, September, TRX daily transactions reached highs of more than 400,000. And now, as I write this, the last day transactions that Tronscan shows were 245124, which tells the network usage is multiplying.
Tron’s Virtual Machine got launched a couple of months ago, and during the launch, Sun said that Tron’s VM would be a lot faster and better than Ethereum’s. However, Sun’s statements have been actualized as considering the community’s reaction, Tron’s VM is 1000x quicker and compatible than Etheruem’s VM.
Sun also stated on his official Twitter page that Dapps developers should not build their Dapps on Ethereum’s network and that Tron has the capability and efficiency to give Dapps developers a better experience.
Tron’s Projects: Completed and Work in Progress
Tron’ network is growing with every day that passes, and this is due to its accomplishments. Just this year alone, Tron’s ICO was completed (within three days), its blockchain developed, 2000 TPS, ERC burned and now TRC, BitTorrent acquired, Blockchain.org acquired, MainNet launched, 27 Super Representatives elected, and TVM launched.
Sun recently released Tron’s weekly report to the world that covered all the completed projects and the ones still being worked on by Tron Foundation.
According to the report, there have been several signs of progress so far on Tron’s network which includes the addition of hardware information detection and datum test for nodes. In the last seven days, Tron has included a paging query function to its platform. For its wallet, an update with a completed account-system related to unit test has been done.
Several projects are still being worked on. Tron is also working to improve its TVM test cases. Also, a UPnP test has been done on its network alongside a complete multi-signature related unit test on its wallet.
At the time of writing, the price of TRX is $0.02264, after going up by 6.80% in the last 24 hours, with a market capitalization of $1,491,808,093. The blockchain occupies the market position NO.13, according to CoinMarketCap.

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…
