A new statement by the TRON Foundation and TRON’s creator, Justin Sun, announced a new airdrop event for TRON’s community. The event will be a collaboration between TRON (TRX) and a known cryptocurrency exchange called Bitbox.
Additionally, the event will serve as a way of welcoming the LINE corporation into the cryptocurrency community.
Glad to see more leading companies adopting #blockchain and its technologies! We welcome @LINE_Global's commitment and look forward to working closely with their team on further product integration. Enjoy $TRX airdrop on @bitbox_official! https://t.co/nreKPouUmT

New Tron airdrop to celebrate LINK’s listing on Bitbox
LINE has recently launched its own digital currency called LINK (LN). Furthermore, the event will be a type of celebration of LINK being listed on Bitbox. Upon being listed, LINK is to be paired with several other digital currencies, including Bitcoin (BTC), Tether (USDT), and Ethereum (ETH).
Soon after the announcement of LINK’s listing on Bitbox, TRON confirmed its participation and partnership in an airdrop event hosted by Bitbox.
At the moment, LINK’s use cases are relatively limited to single utilization, which will include dApps. However, it is expected that the coin will soon become available on additional channels, which will bring numerous additional use cases.
The new announcement by Justin Sun came just after the last week’s statement that TRON is working on a new secret partnership. At the time, Sun’s announcement that came via Twitter received a lot of attention. The entire crypto community started speculating regarding the identity of the unnamed company.
Sun’s statement did not provide a lot of clues to go on, except for the fact that the company is very large, and that its worth includes tens of billions of dollars. This has caused many to assume that the company he was referring to is none other than Baidu, a large Chinese browser, often compared to Google itself.
So far, neither TRON nor Baidu confirmed that this is the case, however, and the announcement still puzzles the crypto community to date. If true, this would likely be the most important partnership that TRON has entered so far. Experts believe that TRON’s price would skyrocket as soon as the Baidu partnership receives an official confirmation.
As for LINE, the fact that its own token will officially be listed on Bitbox marks a significant milestone in the company’s implementation of a token economy. LINE CEO, Takeshi Idezawa, commented on the move by saying that it is a major step forward in company’s plans, which include the creation of a token economy that will reward participation.
Additionally, the airdrop that is to be held on Bitbox is supposed to only be the first of many. As mentioned, this one will only involve TRON (TRX). As for future events on Bitbox, there are already plans such as discounts on LINK in cases where the coin is used for paying trading fees.

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. One of the ways to have a successful trading…
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.”
Mr. Yamagata has been…
