As for the moment the crypto world is going through one of the toughest times regarding price movements. In fact, at the time of writing the market capitalization has decreased to the point of having a value of  $193,719,360,631, a number that is to be worried about if we consider the heights the market has reached before with market caps touching the 800 billion dollars level.

In this sense, we all wonder how is it possible for the market, and specifically, for our favorite coins to give a U-turn and get back to decent prices where we can feel safe again.

TRON (TRX) is definitely one of those coins about whom we question the most. As it seems, Tron is one of the most solid projects that exist out there, and additionally, counts with one of the greatest teams in the industry, starting with the presence of Justin Sun as the CEO and leader of the group.

Tron has given us some of the most exciting initiatives ever since it was created, but for some reason, this hasn’t been translating that much into the price. So what can we expect in the long run for the TRX token? Let’s see all the details on a long-term price prediction for the coin.

Long-term price of Tron

Truth be told, things have not been going the way we expected with the TRX token. In fact, after the main net launch, the Super Representative Elections, the Tron Virtual Machine, and other outstanding projects, we were hoping to see a skyrocket that didn’t occur.

Instead of that, we’ve seen how the price has been slumping down, even moving the coin out of the prestigious spot of the top ten cryptocurrencies.

At the moment of writing, TRON places at the 13th position of the charts according to Coinmarketcap. The crypto has a current price of USD 0.0193 per coin, a trading volume of $101,406,132, and it has decreased by 1.42 percent in the last 24 hours. In this sense, it just seems like the landscape is not rosy for the coin, but how do we know that the price will rise soon?

Well, recessions are actually quite frequent in the finance sector. In fact, back in 2008, the finance world had one of the toughest times ever with a pronounced recession that broke several banking institutions and made disappear a bunch of them.

For instance, we can name the case of Lehman Brothers, a reputed financial institution that was forced to apply for bankruptcy in lights of the hard scenario of the day. Back then it was actually common to wake up and see futures reflected of 400 or 500 point downs.

About this, the influence that news and social media has on this type of business is crucial. Most of the times, the community takes decisions because of the information in which is exposed, but when price stops having a relationship with all the news around, that’s when we can expect a real increase in the coming months.

When news of this kind don’t affect the price or don’t make the price to go lower, that’s an indicator of a ‘soon coming’ reversal. Like this, Tron may give an upturn in the following months, but to see this happening it would need both events and market support.

Concerning events, TRON has definitely characterized for creating the best initiatives to fulfill its mission of ‘decentralizing the internet,’ and that’s precisely another of the reasons why Tron will manage to surge, as it has one of the most robust fundamentals of the sector. But for the market support, it would need the boost of a market increase to skyrocket its prices.

Like this, we could be speaking of getting to a mark of $4 or even higher in the long-run (3-5 years), depending on the market conditions. But what we can be sure of, is that the current conditions of the sector are no longer affecting the price of token that much, so we at least can expect an upturn to happen in the following months. Stay tuned.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
