Tron (TRX) made a huge step in expanding its network by acquiring BitTorrent in July. Since then, everything has been underneath if we talk about official declarations. But now, for the first time, the foundation has unveiled a master plan of building a trusted decentralized internet.

Project Atlas is a detailed summary of the firm plans that will flag the future of content issuance. In other words, the project describes how the two systems will combine to create a content sharing platform. The system created will use TRON tokens as the native currency.

According to Justin Sun, CEO of Tron, the Tron protocol will be merged into the file-sharing platform. The features of the product will have no mining, backward compatibility, faster downloads, and more seeds.

The ultimate goal of the project is to allow all content creators and their followers connect directly, and eliminate third-party (mediators). In the end, content creators will distribute content to users directly.

How Will “Project Atlas” Function?

At the start of “Project Atlas,” BitTorrent peers will spend tokens to motivate users to obtain special services and features. Some of which include faster downloading speed. Other activities like seeding downloads that support the ecosystem will be paid with TRX tokens.

For subscribers who are interested in mining, TRON (TRX) utilizes a Delegated Proof of Stake system. That means users who take part will exchange tokens based on resources provided not mining.

On the other hand, BitTorrent is bringing out the features as a set of backward-compatible protocol add-on. In other words, torrent clients will pursue working flawlessly regardless of if a user decided to download or seed/from the new generation of the user or if a subscriber is operating a torrent system other than BitTorrent or uTorrent.

Still, BitTorrent will apply this evolution of the protocol on both desktop and mobile versions. Later, it will explain the performance to the developer community and encourage other torrent followers to follow the lead and enhance the infrastructure for everyone. The company will, however, continue offering services at no cost. Today, Justin tweeted a video too, which highlights all that Project Atlas is after, nicely.

Subsequently, a more thorough explanation of the latest features meant for the network will be live in a Youtube presentation scheduled on 28th September.

Can Blockchain Revolutionize Content Distribution?

The affiliation of TRON and BitTorrent together with other blockchain-based content distribution infrastructure has been termed as an avenue that will modify the way that various forms of media are today consumed and paid for.

For instance, a good number of decentralized streaming services are emerging just like platforms that pay users with tokens in exchange for using the content. ”Bitcache,” Kim Dotcom’s business will mesh Bitcoin micropayments that will facilitate users to share content with one another; Ta Ta Tu refunds its users for the content they use.

In summary, Tron is optimistic to benefit from the integration of more than 100 million subscribers the torrent platform, BitTorrent, boasts.

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

We are now halfway through 2019, and the situation in the crypto space is better than ever in the past year. Numerous cryptos are seeing large gains, often cut by brief periods of stagnation or small corrections, but the overall sentiment is obviously bullish.

Bitcoin sits way above the $8k mark, and while it struggles to go beyond $8,700, it is still trying to grow. Investors and analysts are quite bullish regarding the foreseeable future, and a lot of altcoins are expected to follow BTC in this regard. However, today, we would like to talk about one particular altcoin — TRON (TRX) — as well as why it is likely to go big in June.

TRON’s progress so far

As many people in and out of TRON community know, TRX is not a project that often sits still. It is rich with announcements, particularly when it comes to his CEO, Justin Sun, whose enthusiastic tweets often seem like hype building to many.

However, TRON made some massive progress in 2018, which was the worst year cryptocurrencies have ever seen. This is not something that can be achieved through hype alone, and the project needs to have true quality and value in order to see such massive development in the middle of the longest and harshest crypto winter in…

IOTA

The crypto space is erupting once again, and if popular predictions are correct — the growth is only starting. However, in the vast sea of altcoins that hold the massive potential to go big in the future, we would like to set IOTA aside as one of the coins that might blow up quite soon.

As always, there are no guarantees of this, as the crypto space still lacks regulations, and remains highly volatile. To see proof of this, all you need to do is look at Bitcoin, which goes up by $1,000 within a day, only to slowly drop by $700 in the following week, and then repeat the process. In other words, there is still a lot of uncertainty regarding any project, and that includes IOTA.

However, even with all of that in mind, many are quite optimistic about this particular project, especially after a recent announcement. The announcement in question indicates that IOTA is about to see a massive upgrade. In most cases, this would be more than enough of a reason to expect the coin to start performing better. But, in IOTA’s case, this is nearly a guarantee that it will.

The update is believed to carry a lot of fixes for a lot of problems that traders and investors have been reporting for a while. No crypto is perfect, and since IOTA is…
