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.

TokenPay (TPAY), Litecoin, and Verge (XVG) alliance about to transpire
Ever since the cryptocurrency sphere was met with the news of the partnership between Litecoin Foundation, TokenPay, and Verge (XVG), the idea of them coming together has been among the most controversial news to ever surface in the cryptocurrency world.
The collaboration managed to even draw the attention of one of the most renowned crypto-influencer and bitcoin campaigner, Tone Vays. In his usual style, Tone took to Twitter handle on hearing the news, tweeting and expressing his disapproval while criticizing the creators of the three cryptocurrencies for allowing such a move to occur.
In retaliation to the attacks from Tone, Charlie Lee, the MD, and founder of Litecoin (LTC) posted his clarification on Reddit on the 17th July in regards to the partnership. Litecoin’s CEO started by explaining the dissimilarities between Litecoin as a currency and Litecoin as a company.
In his remarks, he said that Litecoin as a blockchain and crypto network is a decentralized network, whereas Litecoin Foundation as a company is a centralized non-profit institution whose goal is to ensure Litecoin (LTC) is developed, adopted, and used. Charlie also mentioned that Litecoin’s cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies did not require his direct services at the moment hence his concentration on Litecoin Foundation.
Charlie Lee made his remarks known saying:
“If Litecoin Foundation (LF) is exposed to not doing a good job, nothing should prevent another organisation to step in and do a better job. This is…
Here’s Why This Coin Still Has Wings (WINGS)
WINGS, a decentralized crowdfunding platform based on the Ethereum blockchain, has had a great run over the past two months. Culminating in a peak of US $.23 just a few days ago, the currency behind the product has more than doubled since it’s lows of early September.
Despite the slight downturn WINGS is currently experiencing, this crypto-favorite may not be done running up the green candles on your favorite exchange just yet. A small drop like we had today was actually expected and could be considered healthy by long-term investors. These dips are also appreciated by those of us waiting to get in on a project we feel has real potential. WINGS has shown us that potential and is now presenting a great buying opportunity for speculators and traders looking for the next wave of support to lift this coin into the stratosphere.
What is WINGS?
WINGS was created to nurture project proposals via the Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) model. Using blockchain networks and smart contracts, the platform allows the WINGS community to promote proposals with the greatest chance of positive returns. WINGS, in essence, is a decentralized forecasting ecosystem, where token holders are given an incentive to make choices concerning projects on the platform.
The DAO is a popular concept for crypto-projects that want to remain entirely on the web. Using the peer-to-peer technology of blockchain and smart contracts to enforce the rules of participation is…
4 Things That Will Make An Altcoin Successful
Since the crypto craze began, there have been hundreds of altcoins that have emerged and attempted to take over the world of crypto with their advanced and innovative ideas. While these days there are well over 2,000 individual coins, there have been many more to emerge and disappear, all within the last 10 years.
Clearly, having an idea and launching the coin itself is not enough. While it is by no means easy to do so, there are additional measures and rules that you, as an altcoin creator, need to consider if you want your coin to remain relevant. Clearly, not every idea can succeed, and after 10 years, it is quite difficult to present something new. However, cryptos are still a new technology, which is why there are still many unexplored possibilities that may allow you to reach success.
Secrets to altcoin success
1. Capturing the attention
As mentioned earlier, there is not a lot of things that are simple when it comes to creating altcoins. However, while your plan and idea make sense to you, no matter how complex they end up being, this will not be the case with potential investors. Many of them might give up on getting involved if they do not understand what the coin is all about, or if the road ahead seems too complicated and unclear.
This is why having an idea is not enough. What you need to…
