TRON (TRX) is Making Its Way into the Gaming Industry

Published

on

gaming

As the market was falling down, with the market deep ending with the last week, TRON had something to look forward to. With a brand new partnership announced during the previous week, TRON is potentially looking towards having its value priced more in the market, which could on the long run help this currency blossom, slowly being recovered from the massive drop. Let’s see with whom TRON partnered up and what hidden potential does that partnership hold.

TRON and BitGuild

BitGuild is a gaming platform with thousands of users around the globe, but don’t be mistaken thinking BitGuild is just another average gaming platform as this network is far from having a traditional way of hosting a great number of users.

BitGuild is actually based on blockchain technology and unlike traditional gaming platforms; this platform has a unique plan for solving numerous various issues revolving around gaming companies and users. The platform is, of course, decentralized given the fact that it is operating on blockchain technology and as of March 16th, BitGuild released their own ICO under the ticker PLAT. PLAT will be available for token sale for the next 13 days until the end date of sale which will occur on April 5th.

BitGuild’s own CEO, Jared Psigoda, has announced a partnership with TRON in his statement given during the last week.

What BitGuild is planning on doing is to release and enable a whole new way of gaming, which will also provide a unique gaming experience. The tokens they have released on token sale in form of coin offerings will be used as ERC20 tokens on Ethereum. The purpose of BitGuild’s PLAT tokens will be purchasing in-game items.

The general idea behind this platform is to enable players to hold “shares” over their gaming items. So, that basically means that items you would own in a game would be owned by you in real life as well thanks to the blockchain technology. Moreover, that means that in case you have collected certain items while you were playing a game on BitGuild gaming platform, those collected items could be monetized in form of PLAT, so those items wouldn’t belong to developers of the game, it would belong to the gamer collecting the items.

There will be PLAT wallets, so all monetized values could be kept safe in form of PLAT. After establishing ownership through smart contracts, the owner can decide what to do with his valuables – whether to sell it, keep it, exchange it or use it in another game.

To make this system functional and among everything extremely reliable, BitGuild will have to start from scratch, building a unique set of games that would enable this sort of interaction.

That is how BitGuild’s CEO came to the idea of forming a partnership with TRON because as stressed out by BG’s CEO, blockchain technology will allow the gaming industry to embrace improvements and eventually evolve.

As BitGuild’s blockchain technology will allow users to own the items earned through playing games that will be specially designed for this occasion, this gaming platform will also focus on gaming companies and game developers, allowing them to still hold authority over their intellectual property, in this case, their own game and everything included.

That means that if a game developer of a game you are playing all of a sudden decides to ban you from the game under their ownership and development then you would lose all items related to the game that you have earned by far.

The main reason why BitGuild has decided to go into the partnership with TRON is a product of a long-time observation where BitGuild’s team had a chance of confirming that TRON has one of the most notable and engaging communities in the entire gaming industry.

Also, thanks to the partnership with TRON, all BitGuild gaming platform users that also own TRX should have special access to exclusive games with limited editions that would be enabled for playing and purchase on BitGuild.

Having that said, BG’s CEO also added that gamers around d the globe are usually the ones who would embrace new technological improvements pretty quickly and be the first in the line about it, so partnered up with TRON, both TRX and BitGuild could benefit greatly and change the map of the gaming industry together, hand in hand with blockchain technology.

How is TRON doing at the Current Moment?

Although there are no major signs of improvements in the price, TRX is somehow hovering around the value of 0.03$ per one unit.

After the latest change in the market that occurred in the last 24 hours, TRX dropped by -0.69% against the dollar.

However, given the fact that the drop wasn‘t significantly high, leading TRX to a new low, TRX traded up against BTC and ETH by 3.14% and 3.96%, which means that observed from another point of view, TRX is still trading in the green in a way.

TRON can currently be bought at the price of 0.035$ per one unit, which makes it a perfect investment for all crypto enthusiasts who are looking for neat bulk investments and gamers alike.

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?

Published

on

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…
