Tron (TRX) keeps getting ‘support in mass’ for its Main Net release



Tron TRX support

Mr. Justin Sun, Tron’s CEO and founder, likes to shake things up every time the project is about to complete a milestone. The next one is, of course, the launch of Tron’s own Main Net, which will see them become a fully autonomous blockchain (and coin) independent from Ethereum and the ECR-20 blockchain as well as an app developing platform. This is coupled with strong rumors about a Coinbase listing.

So the foundation is doing several things to mark the occasion. A huge giveaway was announced, and the foundation’s website was completely re-designed. This has given community members motivation to join the team to make the cryptocurrency’s environment more successful. Current TRX market capitalization is at $4,653,519,846, and it trades at $0.07 at the time of press.

A tweet from Mr. Sun recently announced the release of a Tron virtual machine coming Friday, just after a couple of days now,  on May 25th. The Main Net is scheduled for May 31st. There’s a very visible countdown in the new website (which weirdly enough wasn’t working correctly at the time I tried to see it at first, a couple of days ago, works fine for me now).

Then the token migration will happen on June 21st, according to plans. Five days later, on the 26th, twenty-seven super representatives will hold a vote on Tron’s future. 

The vote aims to guarantee that the Tron organization will be a democratic, self-government community, with free elections and “overarching legitimacy” according to the letter published by Mr. Justin Sun this April in which he explained his own commitment to individual rights and why democracy and transparency are essential for the Tron Foundation.

More cryptocurrency exchanges have announced they will support Tron’s new blockchain, platform, and token migration. Among them are China‘s RightBTC, and Bixin.

Users must buy twenty ERC-20 based tokens in RightBTC so they can start doing business, but this is common practice in most exchanges around the world. Bixin’s pool mining model is unique. It privileges openness and transparency. Also, it allows for instant transfers with OTC Trading, Escrow Trading, and Market Stats which makes trades easier for its users.

Upbit, IDAX, Bithumb, Liqui, and Dragonex joined in to support Tron’s migration too, just recently.

There are also plenty of souvenirs and merchandise around. U disk products, caps, notebooks, a TRX commemorative coin, hats, t-shirts, handbags among other things. Even the hashtag TRONICS is currently trending on Twitter. The man himself was using his Twitter account to promote the items:

The Tron community is very optimistic which you can see in comments such as “45 cents by this time next year.”

While Tron and its coin are still not among the crypto world main players (not in top 5 yet), a lot is expected from them because of Mr. Sun’s previous successes as an entrepreneur. 

It bears saying that the fantastic growth Tron has achieved has taken them less than a year’s time since the project started which was only last July. Keep an eye out for Tron and Tronix. It seems great things are happening for them and the token is still cheap enough that you can buy it in bulk, and see it grow.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes




While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto Billionaire Predicts Massive Price Growth by 2021



crypto billionaire

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

TokenRoll (TKR) Platform Will Take Online Casinos to the Next Level




Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
