The second quarter of 2018 is a beehive of activity for the crypto-verse with a handful of projects showing tremendous progress in terms of releasing their MainNet versions of their blockchains. Tron (TRX) tops the list with its MainNet launch scheduled for the 31st of May which is less than three weeks away. As a matter of fact, there is an official countdown on the Tron Website specifically tailored for the MainNet launch. It currently reads 20 days 13 hours and 10 minutes at the moment of writing this.

This launch has been anticipated by the entire Tron Community that was revealed by Justin Sun, to number 1.08 Million enthusiastic HODLers. In the May 9th tweet, Justin said the following:

#TRON Good news for us, by the time of 2018 May 9(UTC+8), the Holders of #TRX $TRX exceeded 1.08 million, let’s keep moving

And indeed the Tron project is moving. The most recent exchange to be announced as supporting the token migration that starts on the 21st of June is Binance. The announcement was made on the Binance twitter page and had this to say about the migration.

#Binance Will Support #Tron $TRX MainNet Token Swap. When the swap occurs, we will handle all technical requirements involved for all users holding #TRX.

The major take away from the Tron token migration event is that all the owners have to do, is transfer their tokens to an exchange that supports the migration. When in the exchange, everything will be automatic starting June 21st to June 25th. HODLers have up until the 24th of the same month to transfer their tokens to an exchange. The other option is to wait till after the event, for the Tron foundation to announce a permanent token-exchange counter to do the token migration at a later date.

Other notable exchanges that will support the migration include Bitfinex and Bittrex. Bitfinex only added the token on its exchange on the 24th of January together with 6 other tokens. TRX is now tradable on Bitfinex against Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and the USD.

The current market analysis puts TRX at a value of $0.08 and up less than a percent in the last 24 hours. The token has maintained the number 10 position and seems to have marked its permanent entry into the big leagues of coins and tokens on coinmarketcap.com. TRX had recently grabbed the number 9 spot from IOTA only to lose it when the latter made several announcements including partnerships with German startup AutoBahn, Porsche and having the Chief Digital Officer (CDO) of Schindler joining its project advisory board.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

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 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…

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…
