TRON (TRX) Expectations for 2019

Published

on

TRON

Even though it was not in the top 10 largest coins for the most part of 2018, TRON (TRX) was undoubtedly one of the most productive coins of the past year. It has already made a name for itself in the crypto community, and it achieved so much in 2018 that it is impossible to list and explain all of its achievements properly.

Indeed, TRX supporters are highly optimistic regarding this coin. Despite all the difficulties that cryptos had to go through in the previous year, the crypto community remains convinced that cryptocurrencies will eventually bounce back, no matter how long it takes. There may be significant changes in the structure of the market when this occurs, that much is not being questioned.

A lot of coins that are currently still active will likely disappear in the process, especially if they are weak projects with no proper support or plans for the future. However, there is a lot of people who firmly believe that TRON will not be among them and that this coin has excellent chances of being one of the most dominant cryptos in the future. The evidence certainly indicates that this way of thinking may be correct and that TRX has a lot of potentials to become one of the top coins of the third generation of cryptos.

TRON events and performance in 2018

Similarly to every other cryptocurrency out there, TRON has experienced significant losses in January 2018, after the market crash which eventually ended up taking away as much as 90% of most coins’ value. Not a single crypto has recovered from the event to this very day, and it will likely not happen for a long time to come.

However, while its value may be low, TRON has made a lot of progress regarding pretty much everything else. There was a time when the coin was announcing new partnerships, listings, and similar types of support pretty much on a daily basis. Even now, its creator, Justin Sun, regularly posts updates regarding new listings, projects, events, and development details regarding the TRON ecosystem.

In 2018, TRON also managed to launch its TestNet, followed by MainNet, a token swap, several token burns, the election of Representatives, and finally — the purchase of BitTorrent, which led to its Project Atlas. Of course, this did not all come at once, and it actually took months of preparation, planning, and negotiating for everything to happen the way it did. However, this still doesn’t make it any less impressive.

After its MainNet launch, TRON also started seeing a lot of development on its new blockchain, especially when it comes to dApps. While there are many projects that are dedicated to dApp creation — such as Ethereum, which started it all, EOS, NEO, and others — TRON appears to have something that other projects lack, something that makes its dApps much more successful.

It is because of this special ingredient that TRON dApp usage led to the coin breaking records in regards to daily transaction volumes. It still has only a few finished dApps, although many others are being created right now, and most of them will likely be completed at some point in 2019. Meanwhile, TRON’s goals have not changed, and it still aims to revolutionize the entertainment industry and decentralize the web, with Project Atlas being its first big step on the road to achieve this.

What to expect from TRON in 2019?

Due to the crypto-unfriendliness of 2018, not a lot of people in the crypto community were sorry to see this year end. So far, 2019 is mostly viewed as the year of opportunities and untapped potential. The crypto market is not in great shape at the moment, especially when compared to the situation it was in late December 2017 and early January 2018.

However, while many have started rethinking their involvement with crypto, there are also those who firmly believe that things will get better. In TRON’s case, the coin has had losses in 2018, as mentioned, and that much is true. However, it also used the year to set strong foundations and make preparations for a large takeoff, which might take it to the stars when proper conditions are met.

The project’s current efforts mostly focus on developing its platform, building different projects (including Atlas), improving its DEX, and more. A lot of people see Project Atlas as TRON’s biggest announcement of 2018, as well as the most important thing that coin’s developers are currently working on.

As mentioned, it includes BitTorrent, which is the biggest reason why developers obtained it back in June 2018. The plan is to use BitTorrent’s network to improve TRON’s own reach, but also to help a lot of new crypto users enter the space by providing rewards for seeding content. While not a lot of people are expected to actually interact in TRX via BitTorrent, it will still reveal the possibilities of doing so to many.

It appears that TRON’s moves mostly focus around building a community, expanding it, bettering it, and providing it ways to survive through rewards and similar forms of incentive. In addition, BitTorrent already started accepting payments in crypto, including TRX itself, BTC, and BNB. Not only that but it also just launched its own native, TRON-based token— BitTorrent (BTT).

The coin can be used for improving the speed of downloads and the entire network, in general, which is yet another way in which TRON plans to tokenize content sharing in its ecosystem. Considering the fact that BitTorrent supposedly has around 100 million users, many see cooperation with BitTorrent (and the entire Project Atlas) as the best decision TRON has made to this day.

For now, TRON is expected to continue development of its platform and its larger projects, with smaller ones also being expected from time to time. However, there is never much certainty when it comes to TRX, and a new big announcement might be just around the corner at any time.

3 Reasons Why WISE Token Could Be a Massive Winner in 2021

Published

WISE token

After working in proprietary trading for over a decade, I decided to transition to crypto in early 2017.  Although crypto is significantly different from traditional capital markets, I managed to successfully find a niche for successful and opportunistic trading.  While 2017 was the perfect time to get involved, the past few years have proven to be a bit more challenging as far as generating ROI.

Cryptocurrency traders have spent the past several years searching far and wide for the next big winner.  While the market as a whole hasn’t been very bull friendly, one specific area that appears to be gaining traction is decentralized finance, more commonly known as DeFi.  This area generally refers to the digital assets and financial smart contracts, protocols, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum.  The reason why so many crypto entrepreneurs are flocking to this space is that it allows them to create traditional financial vehicles in a decentralized network, outside the meddlesome control of foreign governments.

One extremely popular DeFi project is Chainlink (LINK) which is a decentralized oracle network that provides real-world data to smart contracts on the blockchain.  Chainlink has seen its token price increase by more than 300% year-to-date.    Another impressive project in the space is Kyber Network (KNC) which has seen its token soar from $0.20 at the start of the year to more than $1.60 at present.  Kyber Network’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized tokens swaps to be…

Lotto Nation is Revolutionizing the Traditional Lottery Industry

Lotto Nation

As the global economy continues to deal with the economic fallout due to the ongoing pandemic, companies are coming to terms with the fact that normalcy may not return for quite a while.  Many economists are wondering how the business landscape will look a year or more from now.  It’s certainly possible that many businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, may be unable to survive the current downturn.  But while some businesses will falter, others will emerge stronger than ever.

Traditionally, when economies go through a severe downturn, companies adapt.  Those that maintain the status quo usually have great difficulty while those that adapt prosper and conquer.  One possible example of this is Lotto Nation.  Thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of Nils Thomson, the Founder and CEO of Lotto Nation, the company is attempting to completely modernize the traditional lottery industry.

Current Lottery Model is Severely Outdated

It’s safe to say that nearly every human that has ever walked the earth has fantasized about winning the massive jackpot that would completely change their life.  These dreams have turned the global lottery industry into a $302 billion market that is expected to reach $380 billion by 2025.  Despite this predicted growth, the industry suffers from a variety of problems that are preventing it from really exploding.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that traditional lotteries are centralized.  Because of this, there is essentially no oversight on what a lottery provider…

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors

Aluna.Social

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, unlock their full potential, and improve trading performance.  Cryptocurrency trading can…
