TRON (TRX) Foundation came up with yet another community program that will keep this crypto’s enthusiasts busy. The new plan is called $20k Incentive Plan and is the latest one on the ever-expanding list of community engagement projects. Additionally, TRON is preparing for the token migration, with only a few hours left before the official coin lockdown.

$20k Incentive Plan

TRON (TRX) has become known as a cryptocurrency that keeps its community busy at all times. So far, the Tron Foundation organized several programs for the fans of the coin to participate in. Those included a bug bounty program, a programming contest, and even coreTronicss call-up. The new plan, called the $20k Incentive Plan, is designed to keep TRON’s community engaged, as well as to help them achieve a collaborative effort within the coin’s ecosystem.

Basically, the plan is to deliver a reward of $20,000 to the projects similar to TRON’s blockchain browsers and wallet. That way, the community will remain engaged, while their efforts will actually help the crypto’s ecosystem. And best of all, the projects will be rewarded instantly, and all the developers will have to do is wait for the tech committee to pass it.

By using the community’s efforts, TRON wishes to enhance the MainNet, and improve the user experience for the other users. According to the foundation, giving instant rewards is expected to inspire more developers to join in on the new program, as opposed to giving “loans” like they did during “TRON Acceleration Loan” program. This time, the developers will be inspired to create new and enhanced products and to do it as quickly as possible.

Token lockdown starts today

Another very important event for TRON is its token migration, which has finally come. It is scheduled in only a few hours when the coins will enter the state of lockdown after the exchanges close their wallets. The real migration will happen on June 24, which will be followed by the Super Representatives election on June 26.

TRON’s founder, Justin Sun, took this opportunity to remind users that around 30 crypto exchanges will support the migration, which means that those exchanges can be used for swapping the tokens. The exact time when the exchanges will stop receiving new tokens will depend on each individual exchange, but the users are advised to deposit their tokens as soon as possible, even in these final hours.

Another interesting development includes the long-awaited awakening of TRON’s market price. This is something that the users have been waiting for weeks now, and TRX has hit many milestones during that time. From the launch of the MainNet, through multiple partnerships with various exchanges, and now even the token migration is about to start – the value of TRX could not wait anymore. The increase is small, but the price is still rising.

The community knows that this rise will be slow and steady, but that it will be a long-term trend, which means that patience is the biggest virtue right now. With that in mind, the top levels which the coin might reach can only be speculated right now, especially with many more partnerships that TRON has planned.

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

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…

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…
