Tron (TRX): A massive price spike is imminent

Tron (TRX) is fighting to pull itself up from the price deprecation it encountered for some time as it trails other cryptocurrencies. Currently, the market is performing dismally swimming in the red sea (again) as virtual currencies recording trading lows that can only be compared to the lows of October and September 2017.

The cryptocurrency selloff that began in the first days of August has gone viral and looks unstoppable. Going by last weekends trading, the market showed signs of recovery with the consolidation of the losses that had been encountered. However, virtual assets took yet another fall this week and the better part of trading on Tuesday 14.

For instance, Ripple (XRP) declined 3.77 percent to trade at 0.26 US dollars early this week with Ethereum (ETH) prices falling below the 300 US dollar mark to find a new support level at 250 US dollars.

Bitcoin Cash was also not spared, as it fell to exchange below the 500 US dollar mark to exchange at 497 US dollars. Bitcoin Cash now embraces a new support level of 480 US dollars. This negative market trend reflects on a majority of virtual coins and altcoins in the crypto ecosystem.

However, for the prices of any virtual currency to skyrocket, it needs to increase its circulation in the market and Tron (TRX) has been doing a great job in putting itself out there increasing its chances of real-life usage. And following the current trends Tron (TRX) has been showing, it is safe to say that the digital coin is going to experience a significant price surge shortly.

But what are some of the factors that might lead to Tron’s upwards movement, you might ask. The following are some of the reasons we think might positively impact the virtual currency in the coming few days, weeks, and months.

The Acquisition of BitTorrent

Early this month, the crypto community woke up to the news that Tron (TRX) had successfully obtained BitTorrent plus the positive launch of its mainnet platform aiding in increasing the coins transaction volumes. The move according to many shows Tron’s positive maturity although recent price movements are yet to reflect this good news.

BitTorrent continues to offer high-quality peer-to-peer services to over 100 million customers all over the world as the acquisition of the company was aligned with Tron’s mission of decentralizing the internet.

The challenge remains that BitTorrent mostly deals with pirated contents and its users are used to using BitTorrent’s services for free. How Tron intends to profit from this remains unclear. But one thing is certain, if Tron manages to take advantage of 100 million users of BitTorrent, its price might hit the tallest mountain in our world if not the moon.

Tron’s Acquisition of BlockChain.org

Following the purchase of BitTorrent, Tron (TRX) went ahead to acquire, Blockchain.org, a top-level domain name that many consider as one of the significant acquisitions ever made in the blockchain industry.

And the plans Tron intends to do with the domain name is to make it a decentralized Google for the crypto community members and the entire blockchain industry as the default search engines usually lack complete information about the industry.

Tron will not benefit from this venture in any direct monetary way as the project is categorized as a non-profit venture, but it will surely have some indirect positive influence in its prices as it will assist in increasing consumer confidence in Tron (TRX) as a blockchain and a currency.

Consequently, the above two are just a couple of reasons among many to believe we could witness a huge Tron (TRX) price surge in the near future. Of course, for that to happen, the market needs to have a nice rally, as well as Tron, needs to make use of its user-base in a way that turns the table for the cryptocurrency.

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…
