Just like everything in the current world, the way we transfer money across borders and how we make payments is evolving and changing. This is nothing new as this revolution process began nearly five years ago giving birth to cryptocurrencies. The development of cryptocurrencies continues every day to this very day, and even though they are not all equal; some are doing better than others.
Cryptocurrencies continue to gain acceptance in the world market as the future of money transactions, although they are in their infancy stages. They still have a long way to go before they are universally accepted as a mode of payment on a global level. As per different authentic sources, the number of virtual currencies is between 1600 to 1800 digital coins. Wow.
Tron (TRX) is a blockchain technology that focusses in the area of entertainment and creative content with the goal of changing the internet on a universal scale. Tron (TRX) intends to carve out a decentralized content entertainment environment; it is also an open-based universal digital entertainment protocol.
A few days ago, Tron (TRX) successfully launched its new Main Net, but like other cryptocurrencies in the market, TRX has not lived up to the expectations of many. However, focusing on Tron’s value at present is being short-sighted, rather the focus should be on what Tron as a blockchain can achieve in the long-run.
At the moment, an investor is supposed to focus on the vast opportunities the Tron blockchain and its application offers to the public. There is a wide array of industries showing interest in collaborating with Tron and driving up its value. One of the industries warming up to Tron includes the Gaming Industry (of course, sports sector is not to forget).
The gaming industry is a fortune industry approximated to be a multi-billion industry that is increasingly warming up to the idea of blockchain technology, Tron being on the forefront. The reason for Tron’s adoption in the gaming industry is because it meets all the technical requirements and standards for developing complex online games in a localized environment.
For example, game developers can make use of Tron’s platform to develop games at low costs, thanks to the blockchain’s zero fees. Also, the blockchain can accommodate transaction speeds of up to 10,000, making it the perfect platform any gaming developer would like to use and broadcast their efforts on a global scale.
Tron and the Gaming Industry
Tron has been able to widen its influence to the gaming market by partnering with a supreme gaming company, Game.com, Xu Le, and BitGuild (also a blockchain-based gaming firm). These partnerships are a great starting point for Tron’s intrusion into the gaming industry increasing its possibilities of regaining proprietorship in the virtual world of gaming.
Game developers are not wasting any time utilizing Tron’s stable platform launching games that have the potential of going viral and in turn, drive up the prices of TRX. A good example is this virtual farming game that allows players to grow crops, farm animals as well as purchase farm machinery by the name Cropbyte game. In this game, all victories are paid out in actual TRX currency.
Many other games are being launched in Tron’s platform; it’s just a matter of time they will start driving up its value.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
