Tron is more than your average successful cryptocurrency. Driven by Justin Sun‘s vision of a fully decentralized web, it’s also an entertainment content distribution platform built upon the blockchain and peer-to-peer technology. Users can store and build apps using this platform to host and distribute their own content instead of requiring such service from a third party host (which is usually a centralized service).
The Tron brand and currency belong to the Tron foundation, a non-profit institution started and led by CEO Justin Sun (who formerly founded Peiwo). Mr. Sun is very well known as a former Jack Ma (Alibaba’s founder) student and protegé, and Peiwo’s success, as well as Tron’s spectacular rise (it’s worth three and a half billion dollars, and it only started last July), has turned him into a global business celebrity.
Some analysts even expect him to surpass his protector and become the next Jack Ma. Because of both moguls’ close relationship, there’s the rumor running around that Tron and Alibaba could partner up in spite of the fact that, while Mr. Ma is a big fan of the blockchain technology (more blockchain patents were awarded to Alibaba last year than to any other private company in the world) he’s been very outspoken about his skepticism about cryptocurrencies.
It’s still only a rumor, anyway. Nobody knows for sure so far, except for Mr. Sun and Mr. Ma, and they are not saying anything. It is evident, nevertheless, that Mr. Ma has very high expectations from both Mr. Sun and the blockchain tech, and they are close friends. So if Alibaba is going to partner up with any player in the crypto universe, it would only be natural for that partner to be Tron.
A recent tweet by Mr. Sun made the whole Tron community excited. In that post, he talked about a possible announcement for a new partnership. According to Mr. Sun, it would be the biggest ever partner to join forces with Tron.
Hupan University is located at Hangzhou, China. It was founded by Mr. Jack Ma, who is the principal and still teaches there. He personally invited Mr. Sun to join his entrepreneurial education program, along with only forty other students. That’s how they both became close, and Mr. Sun was the first ever millennial to graduate from Hupan. So they go some way back.
At the time Tron launched its ICO, it was trading at a fraction of a cent. Then it went up all the way to thirty-one cents, which remains its all-time peak. It’s been fluctuating ever since, and Coinmarket has it at $0.070 at the time I write this. It’s still a tremendous growth rate, among the top ones of today’s alt-coins.
Taking into account that Tron’s Main Net is only a few days from being launched now, the current price is an obvious opportunity. The Main Net means that Tron will stop being a currency based on the Ethereum ECR-20 blockchain to become a fully autonomous blockchain and currency.
More than that, it will become a platform for decentralized applications development. The new platform promises to surpass Ethereum’s characteristics dramatically in terms of speed and versatility.
For Tron, it’s not about the coin only but about providing developers with an environment in which apps can be deployed and used. Remember: Tron’s game is to decentralize the web, so Tronix is not the whole dish but only one of the recipe’s ingredients.
The recent trend in the crypto market is bullish. Numbers have been green for most currencies for most of the month (it all started to go down a couple of days again though, Bitcoin lost a lot, but Tron hasn’t been in the Red majorly though), and Tron is the spearhead. It’s expected to reach $0.08 soon, and some market observers think it could even reach $3.00 before the year ends.
Mr. Sun is famously quite adept at marketing. He’s conducted a thorough campaign that hails Tronix as the investor’s choice, and it’s worked. It’s bolstering the coin even as of now. The low price Tronix (TRX) still has just proves the notion that the future looks bright for it.
Cryptocurrency traders anticipate a rebound to happen soon (maybe even today) for the market in general, but some keen watchers think that TRX will presently undergo an eruption that will leave a lot of the competition behind.
Bixin recently declared its support for Tron’s blockchain independence and token migration (the token migration is scheduled for next month). This news came in as the new Tron virtual machine was just about to go live in a couple of days, which went live today. Bixin is one of the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchanges.

Additionally, RightBTC, the first Dubai digital exchange recently included Tron and many other exchange sites, and platforms keep joining in support of Tron’s upgrade to the Main Net and token migration.
The Tron Foundation claims that no fewer than twenty startups are already working hard to develop decentralized apps for the new Tron Main Net. A lot of them will be released next June 5th.
April was a very good month for the cryptocurrency market, and it seems that May has brought about the solidification of those gains. As Bitcoin keeps being increasingly adopted everywhere; even though it’s trading below $7500, the analysts believe that this May will be the last time its value will remain this low. Even in a market, this hot, Tron remains a serious contender to become the year’s most profitable coin (last year was Ripple’s XRP).
The Tron leadership and community are very transparent, they usually deliver on promises, and the coin has performed spectacularly since it hit the market. Mark my words, Tron is set to grow at an exponential rate, watch out for a ‘big bull’ charging this way!

What Changes May the Crypto Space Experience in 2019
After the crypto hype of 2017, a lot of newly-arrived crypto enthusiasts were caught off-guard by the price crash and bear market that took over in 2018. One month after another, investors were waiting for things to change, and for another bull run to take place. Unfortunately, this did not happen in 2018, and while the year’s final days were seemingly stable, the rally everyone wanted to see has failed to arrive.
However, crypto investors remain optimistic, with many of them hoping to see some changes arrive in 2019. There are rather great expectations of this year, especially since the last one failed to deliver. However, many are interested in what exactly is to be expected in this year, which is what we will talk about today.
Bitcoin ETF approval
The US SEC’s decision regarding Bitcoin ETFs was one of the most anticipated events throughout 2018. Sadly, the decision constantly got delayed, and the SEC never actually provided an answer. The last delay has pushed the decision into 2019, and it is now expected to arrive on February 27.
Historically, the SEC was never ready to approve Bitcoin ETF, and many believe that the delays came due to the fact that the market was not ready for then in 2018. This is backed by the fact that the SEC rejected multiple application throughout the year. VanEck and SolidX…
Reasons Why 2019 May Be A Great Year For Crypto
The new year was always considered to be a time of new beginnings, where people can reflect on the past and learn from their mistakes in order to be better in the future. The same is true for the world of crypto, and investors around the world are hoping for 2019 to be better, more profitable, and to have more success than 2018.
The hope for the future is even more important when we consider all the negative development in 2018. There were numerous high-profile hacking attacks, two market crashes, with a strong bear market in between. Not to mention that some of the biggest projects that may have brightened the year a bit ended up being delayed.
With that in mind, it is understandable why investors are looking forward to the new year and all the potential development that it may bring. In fact, there are several reasons why they should be excited about 2019.
1) Bearish market to loosen its grip
The first reason why 2019 can be a good year digital currencies is that it may finally break free of the bearish grip that has been felt ever since last January. Following the first market crash, the bears settled in, and the prices kept falling for an entire year. The market attempted to shake off the negativity on several occasions, with the biggest one being…
3 Coins with the Largest Potential in 2019
2018 has been a pretty bad year for digital coins, and after the initial market crash that occurred a year ago, everyone was expecting a bull run that will fix things. Obviously, it never arrived, and instead of that, all that crypto market experienced was an entire bearish year and another crash in mid-November.
Now, however, it is a brand new year, and attempts to shake off the bears’ grip can be seen even in these first two weeks. The market is still struggling and mostly losing value, rather than gaining, with most coins being in trouble once more. Still, a lot can happen in a year, and most investors remain optimistic regarding 2019. Here are some of the coins that are believed to have tremendous potential, and to be the hope of this year.
Of course, Bitcoin comes first. This is the first cryptocurrency which is still dominating the market, with no other coin being even close to its market cap or price. BTC is the coin that has reached the most prominent heights, and it also lost the most in the previous year. However, there is still hope, as there are several projects and events scheduled for this year that might turn things around for the number one coin.
One thing that is expected is the approval of Bitcoin ETFs…
