We are now halfway through 2019, and the situation in the crypto space is better than ever in the past year. Numerous cryptos are seeing large gains, often cut by brief periods of stagnation or small corrections, but the overall sentiment is obviously bullish.
Bitcoin sits way above the $8k mark, and while it struggles to go beyond $8,700, it is still trying to grow. Investors and analysts are quite bullish regarding the foreseeable future, and a lot of altcoins are expected to follow BTC in this regard. However, today, we would like to talk about one particular altcoin — TRON (TRX) — as well as why it is likely to go big in June.
As many people in and out of TRON community know, TRX is not a project that often sits still. It is rich with announcements, particularly when it comes to his CEO, Justin Sun, whose enthusiastic tweets often seem like hype building to many.
However, TRON made some massive progress in 2018, which was the worst year cryptocurrencies have ever seen. This is not something that can be achieved through hype alone, and the project needs to have true quality and value in order to see such massive development in the middle of the longest and harshest crypto winter in the past decade.
During that time, TRON launched its’ TestNet and MainNet, it got supported and listed on countless exchanges, it migrated its tokens and held Super Representatives elections, and it even acquired BitTorrent, which led to its project Atlas. Earlier this year, the project launched BitTorrent token on Binance Launchpad, which was the most successful ICO in history up to that point. Not only that, but it actually managed to disrupt the platform, causing it to go down briefly, with nothing but a major demand.
The partnership and a close connection to Binance, which decided to openly support the project, brought even more attention to TRON. Meanwhile, the development of its blockchain continued, and its ecosystem saw a flood of new dApp and smart contract developers. In fact, it even managed to attract developers from other projects, such as Ethereum, EOS, and other dApp development platforms.
It also broke multiple records regarding the number of transactions, daily trading volume, and alike. China’s crypto rankings continue to move TRON up their list with each new report, and the project has hit countless new milestones, such as $1 billion in daily transactions.
It even got on the list of coins supported by the Opera browser. Then, it launched new privacy features, it continued its expansion into the gaming industry with a new partnership with SkyPeople, among others, and it recently revealed a BitTorrent file system. All of these are only the tip of the iceberg, which only serve to show that TRON is far from being all about hype, and the project sees constant progress, with massive new developments per each month.
Throughout its extremely successful history, TRON did have one issue, and that is its price, which failed to reflect the project’s progress time and time again. Whenever TRON achieved a successful milestone or announced a new partnership, project, update, or anything else — all eyes were on its price, which usually fails to react.
It did react in some instances, but not very often, and it still sits quite low compared to the heights many believe it should have seen by now. It is currently still struggling to enter the top 10 largest cryptocurrencies list, after being pushed out when Bitcoin SV re-emerged a few weeks ago. However, even while it is off the list, currently sitting at 11th spot, it still has a massive $2.43 billion market cap, which only shows how well the market is doing, compared to the year before.
With constant progress, new plans and updates, partnerships and projects — TRON is bound to see a surge sooner or later, and many believe that it might come quite soon. June is likely to see some positive movement of the price, as Justin Sun recently announced that ‘something amazing’ is coming. With that in mind, keeping a close eye on TRON in weeks to come is likely a good idea, as the crypto space still remains highly volatile, and you never know when the next major surge might unexpectedly hit.

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…
