Tron is almost a year old, and so far the project has achieved much in the crypto sphere. When it comes to transaction speed, it has surpassed cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum and Bitcoin due to the innovative team behind it. Its CEO, Justin Sun, has been ambitious on his goal to make sure Tron (TRX) is one of the top traded cryptocurrencies in the world.

At the time of writing, TRX is priced at $0.020 after increasing in value by 13.9% in the last 24 hours as a result of being listed by BITBOX. In its quest to become a global coin, the Tron Foundation recently announced that it had gotten its own domain name blockchain.org.

We do know the essence of a domain name to a company or a brand, and this is a significant achievement for Tron. Tron plans to enable its site into a search engine that will provide services for other new establishments in the crypto domain world.

Tron’s recently purchased domain will also provide lots of other services such as info search, project assessment, analysis, and others. Also, the domain website would provide lots of valuable information that would be beneficial for people gearing to change the cryptocurrency world.

Tron Live stated this:

We can truly see Justin and his team’s determination to build a solid TRON platform in the blockchain field. We believe with the integration of TRON Virtual Machine (TVM) and BitTorrent; it will take TRON further in the blockchain world. The future is indeed exciting for TRON.”

The blockchain era is rising by the day, but during its inception, the industry itself had issues with getting and distributing information. Outdated search engines do not really showcase the aggregate information needed due to the fact that the Traditional Internet is centralized – important information tends to get missing or concealed. Also, the industry earlier had snags in getting its own information for the public.

Nevertheless, with the acquisition of Blockchain.org, Tron Foundation has shown it is poised to eliminate the hitches facing the blockchain industry, thus, making a “decentralized internet” to serve all projects. It is important to know that Tron Foundation intends not to get any profit from this achievement. Justin Sun said,

The success of the project should not be measured by its profit or its user base. What really matters is that if it makes an effort to make improvements for the entire industry.”

Right now, there is no content on the website for now as it is in its early stages, all you would see is this: “Search Engine of the blockchain World + Big Data Platform.”  As time goes on, the website will offer a lot to the blockchain world. That’s for sure.

A domain name is highly vital to any brand. We can see that with Monaco (a company that aims to develop debit cards that are powered by cryptocurrency), it acquired the Crypto.com domain name last month. Although the crypto-cards company didn’t disclose the buying price but a domain such as Crypto.com could be of $10 million worth, at least.

With that, anyone can see how important a domain name is, and for Tron (TRX), this will ensure its goal to create a highly decentralized internet for the world turns into a reality quicker than many might be thinking. The ‘blockchain‘ is the primary word we all use for the industry, and with this keyword under their wings, Tron team looks capable enough to carry the touch and become Google of the blockchain sector in real. Let’s see how things evolve here.

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.

Mission Statement

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,…

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.

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…
