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 Outdated search engines do not really showcase the aggregate information needed due to the fact that the Traditional Internet is centralized – important information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.

However, come 2019, the US government shutdown dragged on, and the Bitcoin ETF request which had the most potential to see a grant got withdrawn by the very companies that submitted the application.

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos has made numerous headlines recently due to his overly-publicized divorce, which shows all signs of being one of the most expensive ones — if not THE most expensive one — in modern history. According to estimates, it might cost him as much as $70 billion, which will make his soon-to-be-ex-wife the richest woman in human history.

However, as the process continues to unfold, many have started wondering if things may have ended up differently for Bezos if he turned to Bitcoin for help.

Bitcoin as a divorce tool?

In the last several years — since Bitcoin and other cryptos hit fame — many have started turning to BTC during their divorce proceedings. In fact, it can even be said that using the largest cryptocurrency in this way has become a new trend. The trend has been gaining so much strength that numerous law companies started including advice on what to do in regards to Bitcoin as part of their websites.

However, while the trend has been picking up in recent years, it is nowhere near as easy as it might seem. For example, if there is even a suspicion of a spouse having undisclosed holdings appears during the divorce process, it might be enough to impact the final decision of the judge. In other words, even if there is a complete lack of evidence, but…

In recent years, digital cash systems known as cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Litecoin have exploded into the public eye. A blend of cash and stocks, their use and value has grown exponentially. In 2017, the IRS decided to focus great effort on taxing them. In theory, this should be as simple as calculating taxes on any other type of property, bond, or other assets. Cryptocurrency, however, presents a unique challenge. The full extent of one person’s crypto activity can stretch across dozens of platforms and take a variety of different forms. This makes it difficult to gather all of this information cohesively, much less begin the seemingly- complicated process of reporting it.

These three tips should help anyone looking to legally report their crypto activity to figure out where to start.

Documentation is key!

There are dozens of different “exchanges” individuals can use to change their cash into crypto. When the flat currency is changed into cryptocurrency at the exchange, you establish your cost basis. This makes this data crucial when you begin the process of reporting.  Those who have used a variety of different exchanges should keep detailed records of everywhere that they made trades. Once tax season arrives, most exchanges will allow users to view their entire trading history with that exchange. This information will be necessary later to complete taxes.
