You think Tron (TRX) looks good? It’s even better

It’s barely a year since Justin Sun started the Tron Foundation and the project is already one of the most significant in the cryptosphere. This year has been critical.

The Main Net was launched successfully a few months ago, and it seems it was the only missing ingredient in a three-star dish. The Main Net unleashed Tron’s prestige and power, even if the Tronix price remains low.

Once Tron’s new Main Net came online, Tron completed the SR (Super Representative) elections, then it released its virtual machine TVM (Tron Virtual Machine), and its wallet is now fully workable in both iOS and Android.

Those are incredible achievements, especially for a project that is so young, but they’re just a few good things happening around Tron lately. There’s a lot more. What else is happening?

Tron is offering its platform for ICOs, and, according to many neutral observers, it could take that market away from Ethereum which has been the standard for years. This has to do with Mr. Sun’s insistence on Tron’s superior features, as compared with Ethereum, and it seems that the cryptosphere has been listening.

Tron could turn out to be the next big thing for the upcoming ICOs, and we’ll explain to you why in this article. Tron aims to be the future for web decentralization and content management, but it could also become the future for all new digital assets.

Have you heard about TronWatchMarket? It’s one of Tron’s many new projects. It is a new decentralized exchange for tokens. So far, almost half a million new accounts have been created, showing there is a lot of interest in using Tron’s platform to launch new token sales, and it’s been the first platform to actualize Tronix coins.

Then there’s TronLink. It’s a Tron community project in the form of a chrome add-on. The blockchain foundation tweet in July:

Tron: The good stuff

ICOs used to be exciting. Not anymore, especially after they were declared securities. Tron has come to realized that, as well as participants. They’re tedious unless you’re an expert who knows how to deal with Ethereum’s smart contracts.

It’s even weirder that some Ethereum-based ICOs don’t award their participants with tokens in exchange for their money right away, which is entirely beside the point of an ICO.

That kind of ICO needs trust from participants, and the whole point in blockchain technology is to do away with the need for confidence in transactions. Tron can fix this, right here, right now and make ICOs true to the blockchain spirit.

It’s so easy to create new tokens over Tron’s Main Net that it’s becoming a problem. It takes only $20 to create a new token. This has seen the creation of several fake tokens that end up being scams which, in turn, become a challenge for wallets that have to distinguish between authentic and false projects. This may not be great news, but we all should keep this in mind: true democracy is always messy.

Tron: The great stuff

Tron is a very efficient blockchain. So much so that the transaction fees are incredibly cheap (0.1 TRX or $0.002). This makes bandwidth very affordable for all users, but it still prevents hackers and spammers to get in the way of the community. These prices make the network both safe and inclusive. You don’t need to be rich to join it, but you can’t mess around with spam either.

Tron Foundation tweeted:

At the time we write this, Tron trades at $0.0262, which means it’s risen by about 2.57% over the last 24 hours from now. It’s ranked 11th at CoinMarketCap (was at 13th a couple of days ago), and its trade volume is at 333 million for the last day. Tron is a project to watch closely. And we, at GlobalCoinReport, will keep you informed every day.

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…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
