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)

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.

Cardano (ADA)

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).

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.

KaratGold Background

KaratGold Coin is a cryptocurrency developed by the reputable German company Karatbars International, which maintains a leading position in the market of small gold items and investments. The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
