The crypto market is looking good at the moment (the market has started to turn on its head in last 24 hours though, in red again), and transactions with Tron (TRX) have increased in the past few days. The price of TRX has been on a low at $0.035 for the past few months, but right now, the price has moved upward.

The recent surge in the price of TRX was due to the increase in the share of USDT Trading. It is important to note that Tron increased by 31% in USDT Trading share. Although there may be short-term booms due to the USDT trade on Binance and recent market trend, still now, Tron is a matured digital asset and gains can be acquired on a long run – TRX will remain at this state for a while till its network starts distributing its products.

Moving forward, Tron’s election did not occur on June 26 as it was due to the fact that Bittrex and Binance had little doubts about the stability of Tron’s mainnet – and users may have to wait a little longer till the new Tron Wallet can be used.

The Super Representative elections of Tron has begun, but it seems the election is facing a glitch. As it stands, there is no specified date to the end of Tron Super representative elections. TRX tokens have been migrated to different exchanges, but exchanges such as Binance doesn’t permit withdrawals yet as a result of maintenance.

So, Tron’s mainnet was launched on June 25. Before that date, Tron scheduled its launch to be at the end of May, but the cryptocurrency faced some issues at that time. The mainnet has been launched, but it hasn’t lived up to expectations as yet.

Due to the fact that Tron’s mainnet hasn’t produced the right outcome in the past few days, it can’t be counted in the league of the most-traded coins in the crypto sphere. Quite remarkably, it has carved a niche for itself and topped the charts for the most searched on Google – as stated by Tron’s CEO, Justin Sun on his official Twitter page.

It is necessary to note that Tron’s mainnet pledges to offer a platform for distributed apps that will be much better than EOS – we will know if the prototype can stand the test of time as the day goes by.

During Tron’s mainnet, 1 billion tokens were burned and 99 billion new TRX tokens were circulated. Also, Tron foundation will have 33 billion TRX tokens locked till 2020 to maintain its value.

Furthermore, July 31st is the day set by Tron to launch its TVM (Tron Virtual Machine), and this TVM will enable Ethereum developers to migrate their projects into it as it is faster and more efficient.

Tron (TRX) price looks attractive at the moment if you take last seven days into the account (token went in red in last 24 hours following the market trend), but the digital currency is looking for ways to keep up with the current price trend.

There are bizarre forecasts that once Tron’s ecosystem starts functioning, its price will further increase. Well, let’s hope these forecasts are accurate, but in the meantime, let’s keep our fingers crossed and see how things unfold with the cryptocurrency.

As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible.  While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.  The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above.  In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country.  Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…
