Ever since it was launched, TRON TRX cryptocurrency has had large plans for changing the web as we know it. Even in its initial whitepaper, TRON was planning to decentralize and revolutionize the entire entertainment industry. Since those initial plans were published, TRON TRX has had a long journey ahead of it, before it could even think to start making these plans into reality.
Despite numerous obstacles, however, everything that TRON TRX did so far was dedicated to making this goal possible. The first step was its expansion and reaching as many exchanges and partners as possible. Next, TRX had to leave Ethereum’s network and settle in on its native blockchain. After that came its Super Representative election, as well as numerous other projects, such as the launch of TRON VM, purchase of BitTorrent, and the announcement of Project Atlas.
With most of these goals either already being completed, or well on their way to completion, TRON TRX can finally begin its mission to change the entertainment industry. Naturally, this also includes games, as the gaming industry managed to grow to the unbelievable proportions in the last decade.
TRON TRX plans to bring games to blockchain
While PC and console gaming are booming with each new game release, mobile gaming is not far behind. With that in mind, TRON has put a lot of effort into entering partnerships with gaming companies, promising them a unique method of bringing new games — on its own blockchain.
At first, many were wondering if this project has a future, and is it even possible to think that big. However, in time, TRON started fulfilling its promise, and the first blockchain game — BitGuild’s “Magic Academy” — has already been announced. This is only a first step for TRON TRX, however, as it is now obvious that its blockchain has the potential to expand the gaming industry in an entirely new way.
One of TRON’s biggest and most important partners is Game.com, which is a partnership that TRON has nourished for almost a year now. Game.com is an online gaming platform that centers on blockchain game content, and their cooperation with TRON is bound to bring even more blockchain-based games. These games will allow gamers to use cryptocurrencies to make microtransactions, trade and sell unique items, but also to mine new coins, and make a profit during their gaming sessions.
Thanks to its advanced technology, high speeds, low fees, and a professional team, TRON TRX is in a perfect position to allow new games to enter blockchain. However, while TRON is making some game-changing moves right now, this is still only the first step on its way to fulfilling its goal. Apart from gaming, TRON also has plans to revolutionize data-sharing processes, as well as the rest of the entertainment industry.

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…

“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.
He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
