Tron (TRX) eyes top 10 spot with 14% price surge as others keep quiet



Tron TRX

The crypto-market rests in the red-corner at the moment (mostly) as there aren’t too many activities lately. Although one cryptocurrency that has gained lots of attention in the last 24 hours is Tron (TRX) as it has gained more than 14%; most traders didn’t see this coming.

While other altcoins aren’t doing well in the crypto-sphere lately, there may be some changes soon. However, as it stands now, Tron (TRX) looks to be in stiff competition with Monero for the top 10 position in the crypto-market.

Tron’s Performance in the Crypto-market

Last week, Tron’s price was falling below par as it couldn’t go beyond 23 cents. Surprisingly in the last 24 hours, TRX increased more than 14%, trading at $0.027 with a market capitalization of $1.79 billion. Much of its increase has been somewhat due to the rise in the trading volume of TRX/BTC, even though Bitcoin itself hasn’t still recovered.

At the time of writing, TRX has further increased, and it is on the green by just a bit above 14%, and hence the Justin Sun led crypto is tracking Monero which is down by 0.30%.

Subsequently, we could see a higher price surge with Tron as it now has a large trading volume compared to what the coin had last week. It is necessary to also keep in mind that if this trend continues on TRX, it could displace Monero at the number 10th position shortly – although, Monero looks to be coming back to life gradually at these crucial times.

Even though we have seen a good surge in the price of Tron, it still hasn’t reached its peak yet. But on the other hand, some Tron enthusiasts didn’t fail to express their confidence in holding TRX.

Also, a Tron enthusiast, Mr. Skittlebutt, expressed his confidence that Tron’s value will be at a multi-dollar span even though the price and value of TRX don’t seem like it despite its surge.

Another Tron holder who goes by the Twitter handler @CryptoMento said this:

“The people calling $trx a shitcoin are the same people who are rekt because they don’t do any research. Open your eyes people”

As in any case, there still are people who are not convinced yet even after the recent Tron price spike. A user said it’s all just because of the marketing by team Tron, the tweet reads:

“Their ploy worked. they donated money and people are talking about it. if people are talking about it, their marketing scheme worked. like i said, they are master marketers, but thats it imo.”

In other news, today is the official activation of Tron’s Virtual Machine. Tron’s Virtual Machine is pivotal to Tron’s network as it will help Dapps developers install Dapps on Tron’s system and Tron’s Super Representatives nodes.

An official statement released by Tron Foundation included,

“It’s expected that the TVM will be officially activated after the voting on October 8. By then, the 3 main features: the committee, the TVM, and decentralized exchanges will be activated” 

Indeed, it is expected Tron’s Virtual Machine will attract lots of Dapps developers. It has also been said that if more developers install their Dapps on Tron’s network that will positively affect the price of TRX in the future.

Can Libra help the crypto industry to reach new heights?



Libra is motivated and determined to change the face of payment procedures across the globe and make the blockchain-based project the leaders of payments.

The market for cryptocurrencies started with the launch of Bitcoin in 2009, and since then, so many cryptocurrencies have been launched that it gets hard to keep track of them. The crypto market has seen massive growth in the past 3-4 years as it started gaining attention from mass media, which helped in this boom.

From the past 2-3 years, several new cryptocurrency projects were launching in the market. Amid all this, the social media giant – Facebook announced the launch of their cryptocurrency platform, and this news got viral like wildfire. The announcement came forward in June, and the upcoming cryptocurrency is known as Libra, and it’ll come with its dedicated wallet called Calibra.

What is Libra?

Libra is a permissioned blockchain-based digital currency which is being developed under the supervision of Facebook’s vice president, David A. Marcus. The cryptocurrency is under development in partnership with an independent, non-profit member Libra Association. Facebook is the second member of the project, and these companies aim to use Facebook’s user base for the promotion of the digital currency when it is launched. The transactions and the cryptocurrency will be managed and cryptographically entrusted by the Libra Association.

Note: Libra Association was established by Facebook to look after the cryptocurrency and the transactions, and it was founded in Geneva, Switzerland.

Why Blockchain Projects Keep Failing




If you’ve been keeping up with news coming out of the blockchain community over the past year, you’ve probably heard countless projects hyped as the next best thing—only for them to fall off completely off the map a few months later. While some of these projects offered no practical solutions and seemed destined to fail, others creatively used blockchain technology to enhance the way we perform day-to-day tasks.

So, What’s the Problem?

For starters, many of these founders have no real experience running a business or managing finances. Instead, teams are usually comprised of programmers and tech geeks with the ability to develop blockchain-driven apps, but have no clue about project management, allocating resources, effective team building or marketing.

What’s more, when you look at the average blockchain start-up’s website, you’ll probably find a list of team members with accolades a mile long. And many of these “achievements” are in similar blockchain projects that have yet to take off. This makes it hard to distinguish between what is hype and what is credible information, which scares off all but the high-risk investor.

Project Success Starts at the Team Level

The sudden interest in cryptocurrency and blockchain technology can be compared to the California Gold Rush. Everyone wants to get in on the ground floor so that they can make as much money as possible.

Unfortunately, this mentality isn’t just…

Has Steemit seen its glory days run dry? There have been many rumors that the CEO Ned Scott has pushed the company to the blockchain focus that he forgot about Steem being a social media platform. Now, these are just things some of the former employees have been heard saying, but it is a rather interesting take as to what is going on. Give the following video a watch where I break down what is happening with Steem. I also give my thoughts on what may happen to other large ICOs and how we may see this trend continue as we have seen with ConsenSys laying off 10% of their workforce.

If the big name projects are starting to do this will it also have a trickle-down effect on other ICO’s which have no products and are running out of cash? I definitely think so, and I also see this negatively affecting Ethereum for the mid-term. The question many have been asking is just how long can the bottom 1800 projects last with the current market conditions? How many ICOs did not liquidate their Ethereum and now are stuck with 1/10th the cash flow or more in some cases, how will they pay to continue operations? What about the growing number of projects laying off employees like…
