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 Outdated search engines do not really showcase the aggregate information needed due to the fact that the Traditional Internet is centralized – important information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

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.

ICTE May Bring About Sweeping Changes for Cryptocurrency Exchanges

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…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

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…
