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:
Check out Tronlink, the Chrome extension built by @TronWatch! Developers will now be able to create and interact with DApps from a browser, a major step before our Virtual Machine Testnet launch on July 30! Stay tuned https://t.co/4BuNDvPDTX

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.

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.

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…
XENO starts VIP NFT trading service and collaborates with contemporary artist Hiro Yamagata
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 24th December, 2020, // ChainWire //
The XENO NFT Hub (https://xno.live) will provide a crypto-powered digital items and collectables trading platform allowing users to create, buy, and sell NFTs. Additionally it will support auction based listings, governance and voting mechanisms, trade history tracking, user rating and other advanced features.
As a first step towards its fully comprehensive service, XENO NFT Hub launched a recent VIP service to select users and early adopters in December 2020 with plans for a full Public Beta to open in June 2021.
“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…
