As the 11th largest cryptocurrency in the world, Tron (TRX) has been making headways and headlines in the cryptocurrency sphere for some time now. Tron (TRX) recently launched its new Mainnet platform assisting the blockchain technology company get significant media attention and market penetration after the launch.

After launching it mainnet project, Tron (TRX) also launched its Virtual Machine project with some other ongoing projects in the pipeline, that is to include Tron’s Super Representative election.

Over the past few months, Tron (TRX) has managed to secure a lot of significant listings and partnerships, launching its official TronWallet recently for its Android users. Information from Tron (TRX) tells us that a similar mobile wallet will soon be available to iOS users.

Proof-of-Stake (POS) Vs. Proof-of-Work

One of the areas this article will try and shed more light on is the highly contentious consensus validation methods within the virtual currency ecosystem. For the longest period, there was a simple contradiction between Proof-of-Work and Proof-of-Stake better known as POS.

While the later is known for being more flexible and scalable, the former is said to be more expensive and difficult to execute. But as PoS technology continues to grow and evolve becoming more and more enhanced, the virtual currency community began to request that PoS upgrades its systems to a more secure platform to become the preferred automatic transaction authentication blockchain method.

Conceding from the community’s pressure, PoS upgraded their systems to a more secure level ensuring they were safe from simple attacks and vulnerability on their platform.

And just like the requirement that was given by the crypto community, PoS started converting many institutions and companies to their Proof-of-Stake platform to grow and emerge as the most operational validation network available on the blockchain environment.

But as time goes by, the competitive landscape is changing as well. It is no longer a battle between PoS and PoW, rather a new crop of verification networks is emerging to give institutions newer avenues and platforms to validate transactions and settlements on the blockchain.

More specifically, the emergence of Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) into the validation method space has not only changed the playing field but has added introduced democracy as a new factor into the equation.

Recently, Tron Foundation came clear of their intentions to dump PoS for DPoS. PoS has been the prior default validation method used by the Tron blockchain.

The decision to shift to DPoS has caught many by surprise in the cryptocurrency world with reports telling us that the decision to undertake this iconic move was influenced by the in-depth study of the advantages and differences between the two validation methods.

It was on the weekend that Tron foundation disclosed to the world through their Twitter page that the DPoS network would be good for them as it would allow Tron community members to cast their vote in the incoming SR elections.

PoS, like Tron’s (TRX) previous default protocol, miners used to use their own tokens on a block if they wanted to verify the settlements associated with the block. Depending on the length of the transaction and the amount involved, they would then choose one miner to verify the transaction using sophisticated methods to come to that conclusion.

The decision by Tron (TRX) to adopt DPoS is expected to have a weighty and positive effect on the blockchain technology and the public’s perception of the entire consensus validation procedure.

The Crypto Space Once Again Divided Over Bitcoin SV

Bitcoin SV

The crypto community is a strong one, one that managed to bring digital currencies from nothing to an industry worth hundreds of billions of dollars. However, while its strength in this regard is undeniable, the crypto community can be just as fragile given the appropriate conditions. With that in mind, the conditions seem to have been set for a new divide, although the cause is once again the same — Dr. Craig Wright and his Bitcoin SV (BSV).

Craig Wright vs. the (crypto) world

Dr. Craig Wright, the chief scientist at nChain, and the creator of Bitcoin SV. has been a well-known and very controversial figure in the crypto industry. Wright was suspected of being Bitcoin’s creator several years ago, which is possible because no one knows who is behind the name ‘Satoshi Nakamoto.’

Wright was believed to be him, and one theory claimed that he and his friend were responsible for giving life to BTC. However, the theory quickly died out, but not before Wright seemingly liked the idea of assuming the mantle of Nakamoto. He himself started claiming to be Bitcoin’s mysterious creator ever since.

Of course, he managed to gather up some followers, but the majority of the crypto community — while confused — did not believe him. Luckily, there is no need for trust, and Wright should easily be able to prove that he…

Are XRP and Ripple Going to Be Worth Anything by the End of 2019?

One surprise recently was when XRP took over Ethereum’s long-held second place in the Market Cap leaderboards. It quickly went back to its traditional and respectable third place behind Ethereum, but it could be a sign of things to come.

XRP has a lot of clout in the market because of the platform it is based on, which is Ripple. A coin that is used for a very specific purpose and with a long term goal in mind is always going to fare better than others. Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and others have come about because of disagreements in Bitcoin. Therefore they offer nothing except an alternative to Bitcoin as a pure cryptocurrency, while Ripple (and XRP along with it) has something tangible behind it.

Big Banks Back Ripple

Ripple was created in 2012 for a specific reason. It aimed to become a faster and more efficient method to transfer value between banks and countries. This value can be almost anything from currencies to other instruments. While initially, banks were cautious about investing in the company, recently they have been lining up. The crypto winter has helped with innovation int he industry and Ripple has benefitted immensely for it.

The various payment solutions based on Ripple such as xRapid and xCurrent are seeing a large uptake, and this is having an amazing effect on XRP as a whole.…
