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.
It's easier to hide behind a keyboard and call a genuine Project shit than acknowledge that they were wrong and accept defeat.

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.

Building Your Nest Egg Brick By Brick: Are Micro-Investments Here to Stay?
No matter what our goals are, sometimes just getting started can be the most difficult part of building our savings up. When it comes to investing, many of us are wary of parting with our money to generate more financial security in the future. But what if you can build significant savings without even noticing?
That’s the aim of the micro-investing apps that have come to dominate online stores across Android and iOS. Today, more fintech startups are working on delivering refined solutions that encourage minuscule investments at a more frequent rate.
Micro-Investing apps will look to make saving more accessible to young people – many of whom in the UK have little-to-no money tucked away for a rainy day.
However, the prevalence of money-saving technology and the disruptive chaos of the COVID-19 pandemic appears to have prompted a widespread increase in households saving more of their disposable income:
With micro-investing platforms playing a role in bringing UK household savings back up to five-year highs, is it fair to say that little-by-little investing is here to stay? Let’s take a look at how micro-investment platforms could revolutionise how we manage our finances:
What is Micro-Investing
Micro-investing, or sparse change investing, is a relatively new development in fintech. It effectively enables users to put away small amounts of money towards their long, or short, term goals. The idea…

When a claim is approved, stablecoins from the coverage pool goes…
