Lots of great news about Tron have been reported lately. They have been on the Lbank exchange for quite some time already, and the countdown for their main net lunch has started, which many experts are confident that’s going to work for the coin. Tron is on the move actively. Should you invest in it because of that? Not really; there are better reasons.

It would be good for you to understand that Tron adds a lot of value to the digital economy, and it is sustainable in the competitive world of cryptocurrencies. Tron is an outstanding coin, which is good news for you. It’s designed in a way that it can cope with many of the digital economy’s pending issues. Let’s have a look at some of them.

Net neutrality

Recently, the FCC decided to kill net neutrality. Washington State (home of Microsoft, big surprise) passed a regulation protecting it. But this is not as much about politics as it is about technology. It’s about creating a web that has no centralization at all. There is a name for decentralized technology right now, it’s called Tron.

Tron’s intent is a fully democratic web space in which every creator is in control over their content. We can all keep corporations away from controlling our control (they don’t create it, anyway, we do). Tron can help with that. That is the core mission of Tron, in their Web 4.0 statement. We all have a stake in the web economy. And that will make us all relevant, not just corporations like Comcast or AT&T.

Advertising

Having ads that run in-between content become a nightmare to you? You’re not alone, it’s been happening to all of us. That’s the web content’s business model and it’s not just your headache, it’s been the firm’s headache as well. They need to find a way to give you the content you want as well as the ads they need to run.

Tron knows how to deal with this so you can get the content you want without those annoying ads. Just monetize the comments section! People read through those comments after seeing each video (or reading an article). What if the top comment has some advertising value? This way you could see your whole video, uninterrupted. Tron could make this work because transactions costs for Tron are so low, fast and it allows micropayments.

So, all in all, Tron could revolutionize the advertising industry and make your life more enjoyable at the very same time. Watch out for it!

Music

No industry has complained more about the web and the internet streaming than the music industry. Guess what? Tron could also be the solution for them!

Streaming and downloads have hit them (all the people working in the Music industry) hard, even Taylor Swift had a bone to pick with internet users at a time. So, if Taylor Swift feels it, what’s next? The Beatles? Pink Floyd? How bad could it be for musicians who are not nearly that popular?

There is still money in music. Lots of money. That’s not the problem. It’s just that it flows into corporations instead of musicians. Tron can change this by giving every artist the opportunity to control their content and monetize it. This could change things in the music industry for forever.

So, you have nothing to lose here. Supporting Tron will get us the web 4.0, better content, more accessible music that is cheap for you and profitable for artists. Why are you waiting?

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…

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.

In early October, CoinFlip announced on its Twitter that it had officially partnered with BRD Wallet to re-introduce their crypto ATM map.  Now, BRD wallet users will be able to locate their nearest CoinFlip ATM and receive a 10% discount for both buys and sells.  BRD brand awareness is growing quickly within the crypto community thanks to its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit.  The team strongly believes in the value of financial freedom and independence, and want to empower people across the world by leveraging the possibilities that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies provide.

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…
