Among the top cryptocurrencies in the world, Tron (TRX) and Cardano (ADA) have been two of the most dynamic altcoins dominating the news headlines. Many crypto analysts defer about these two virtual currencies as to which is the next dominant player in the cryptocurrency sphere.
Truth be told, ever since virtual currencies emerged in the financial world, digital assets have become a fertile source of venture and investment, although that was not the initial purpose as to why they were developed.
However, in the current world, that is exactly what they are used for, as an investment asset. So, it is prudent to be aware of those virtual currencies whose attributes and features represent the best alternatives to investments.
In this case, two of the most resounding virtual assets in the crypto market at the moment is Cardano (ADA) and Tron (TRX). Let us have a look at the main features of these virtual assets and why I think they are the preferred options to invest as the crypto market continues to grow.
Tron (TRX) is one of the most celebrated and popular virtual currencies in the crypto market at the moment, thanks to the major recent steps it has taken towards mainstream usage and mass adoption, led by its visionary leader and founder Justin Sun.
Tron (TRX) has been one of the leading virtual currencies with the most positive developments throughout the year. Apart from managing to launch TestNet successfully, Tron successfully launched its new MainNet, went ahead with its token migration, where Tron’s coins separated from Ethereum’s network and migrated to Tron’s blockchain platform.
Tron has done so much this year, the digital coin also launched its Virtual Machine (still in beta, it will get launched for the public tomorrow) and managed to purchase BitTorrent, which has become a significant pillar of Tron’s new Project Atlas.
Under its portfolio, Tron has managed to enter into more agreements with big companies than we can count, resulting to the blockchain’s default currency, TRX, becoming the official payment currency for some partner companies.
Most recently, Tron Foundation announced the inclusion and listing of Tron (TRX) on LINE’s exchange, Bitcoin Superstore, and BITBOX, which has allowed its users and holders to buy goods and services from over 200,000 e-commerce shops.
Tron foundation ultimate mission is to lead the wave of decentralizing the internet by revolutionizing the entertainment and creative content industry, and from the look of things, Justin Sun is leading from the front in realizing this dream.
After all, from what we have seen the cryptocurrency is capable of doing, it is Tron alone as a platform that has the capability of achieving this fete.
Although being one of the youngest cryptocurrencies in the crypto market, Cardano (ADA) has managed to record significant growths in multiple ways this year leading to a pile of opportunities for cryptocurrencies.
When it comes to the question of what makes the digital coin so special, first, we must acknowledge that Charles Hoskinson created it.
An astute businessman on his right who formerly was Ethereum’s (ETH) and Ethereum Classic’s (ETC) co-founder. Due to his reasons, Charles left both projects to start his blockchain technology and cryptocurrency to create the optimal digital currency he had in mind.
One of the facts that make Cardano (ADA) stand out is that it was developed by a multi-disciplinary which has an extensive background in the crypto domain. Hence, every decision made during the development of the digital coin was well-calculated and executed. Cardano as a blockchain company expects to get global recognition and adoption as its mainnet becomes fully operational soon.
For me, it’s very tough to pick one from the two, both have targets of solving real-life problems, and of course, the leading heads behind both are nothing short than ‘real visionary.’ Not an investment advice, but as things stand currently, I’d like to invest in both Tron (TRX) and Cardano (only the amount I can afford to lose if things get worse).

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…
