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.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor. But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.
Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace. The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information. Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed. Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?
While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.
Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors. The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…
CoinFlip Scores Big with BRD Wallet Partnership
As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible. While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not. The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above. In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country. Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.
In early October, CoinFlip announced on its Twitter that it had officially partnered with BRD Wallet to re-introduce their crypto ATM map. Now, BRD wallet users will be able to locate their nearest CoinFlip ATM and receive a 10% discount for both buys and sells. BRD brand awareness is growing quickly within the crypto community thanks to its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit. The team strongly believes in the value of financial freedom and independence, and want to empower people across the world by leveraging the possibilities that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies provide.
Cryptocurrencies are already making a huge difference around the world. Citizens of Venezuela, a country devastated by rampant inflation, have been using several cryptocurrencies…
Can Libra help the crypto industry to reach new heights?
The market for cryptocurrencies started with the launch of Bitcoin in 2009, and since then, so many cryptocurrencies have been launched that it gets hard to keep track of them. The crypto market has seen massive growth in the past 3-4 years as it started gaining attention from mass media, which helped in this boom.
From the past 2-3 years, several new cryptocurrency projects were launching in the market. Amid all this, the social media giant – Facebook announced the launch of their cryptocurrency platform, and this news got viral like wildfire. The announcement came forward in June, and the upcoming cryptocurrency is known as Libra, and it’ll come with its dedicated wallet called Calibra.
What is Libra?
Libra is a permissioned blockchain-based digital currency which is being developed under the supervision of Facebook’s vice president, David A. Marcus. The cryptocurrency is under development in partnership with an independent, non-profit member Libra Association. Facebook is the second member of the project, and these companies aim to use Facebook’s user base for the promotion of the digital currency when it is launched. The transactions and the cryptocurrency will be managed and cryptographically entrusted by the Libra Association.
Note: Libra Association was established by Facebook to look after the cryptocurrency and the transactions, and it was founded in Geneva, Switzerland.
