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.

However, come 2019, the US government shutdown dragged on, and the Bitcoin ETF request which had the most potential to see a grant got withdrawn by the very companies that submitted the application.

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos has made numerous headlines recently due to his overly-publicized divorce, which shows all signs of being one of the most expensive ones — if not THE most expensive one — in modern history. According to estimates, it might cost him as much as $70 billion, which will make his soon-to-be-ex-wife the richest woman in human history.

However, as the process continues to unfold, many have started wondering if things may have ended up differently for Bezos if he turned to Bitcoin for help.

Bitcoin as a divorce tool?

In the last several years — since Bitcoin and other cryptos hit fame — many have started turning to BTC during their divorce proceedings. In fact, it can even be said that using the largest cryptocurrency in this way has become a new trend. The trend has been gaining so much strength that numerous law companies started including advice on what to do in regards to Bitcoin as part of their websites.

However, while the trend has been picking up in recent years, it is nowhere near as easy as it might seem. For example, if there is even a suspicion of a spouse having undisclosed holdings appears during the divorce process, it might be enough to impact the final decision of the judge. In other words, even if there is a complete lack of evidence, but…

In recent years, digital cash systems known as cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Litecoin have exploded into the public eye. A blend of cash and stocks, their use and value has grown exponentially. In 2017, the IRS decided to focus great effort on taxing them. In theory, this should be as simple as calculating taxes on any other type of property, bond, or other assets. Cryptocurrency, however, presents a unique challenge. The full extent of one person’s crypto activity can stretch across dozens of platforms and take a variety of different forms. This makes it difficult to gather all of this information cohesively, much less begin the seemingly- complicated process of reporting it.

These three tips should help anyone looking to legally report their crypto activity to figure out where to start.

Documentation is key!

There are dozens of different “exchanges” individuals can use to change their cash into crypto. When the flat currency is changed into cryptocurrency at the exchange, you establish your cost basis. This makes this data crucial when you begin the process of reporting.  Those who have used a variety of different exchanges should keep detailed records of everywhere that they made trades. Once tax season arrives, most exchanges will allow users to view their entire trading history with that exchange. This information will be necessary later to complete taxes.
