Tron CEO explains project Atlas after the TVM launch, in detail

Published

Tron Project Atlas

The whole world has been anticipating and wanting some explanation concerning Tron’s new project known as Project Atlas ever since the Tron Foundation announced it.

Tron (TRX) recently launched its Virtual Machine (August 31st), and during the launch, Sun used the opportunity to explain Project Atlas to the Tron community in detail. The CEO stated that the project would help Tron network to incorporate BitTorrent at its best.

Before we dig deeper as per how Mr.Sun explained Project Atlas, it’s worth noting that the procurement of BitTorrent is now regarded as the best in the crypto world and it has been recognized by profound cryptocurrency owners and enthusiasts today.

The ‘Project Atlas’

Project Atlas is a new plan that aims to link “BitTorrent’s  p2p (peer-to-peer) network and Tron blockchain.” The project also focuses on rewarding peers that seed torrents and to create a token ecosystem that’s in-client. The project will also solve the problem of cross-border payments and content distribution.

BitTorrent announced a recent statement on the fallout of about five of its staff after its acquisition by Tron Foundation. Nevertheless, BitTorrent also added that it has increased in the number of employees and that the company is experiencing massive growth at the moment.

Subsequently, during the launch of TVM (Tron Virtual Machine), Justin stated:

after the BitTorrent acquisition, we have identified a strong work ethic that embodies the spirit of technology and innovation. Since the end of June, 16 outstanding colleagues have joined us. Half of them are former engineers at Facebook, Google, Tencent, Alibaba, Airbnb, and other top internet companies. They will work on Project Atlas.”

Moving forward, Sun stated the theory of Project Atlas from Satoshi Nakamoto’s declarations on BitTorrent acquisition as a model of his Bitcoin’s Peer to Peer Cryptography Mailing List in 2008.

The model of the Bitcoin progenitor further expatiated on the website of Project Atlas as:

For transferable proof of work tokens to have value, they must have monetary value. To have monetary value, they must be transferred within a very large network – for example a file-trading network akin to BitTorrent.”

It is important to know that Project Atlas will make use of BitTorrent’s protocol extensions together with a custom token. This system, as stated by Tron CEO, will help revolutionize the world.

Also, the ‘Project Atlas’ does not make use of a mining system or whatsoever; instead, users participate in exchanging available tokens within themselves. Concerning that, Justin said:

The Tron blockchain is safeguarded by the dedicated proof of stake system along side of the project atlas token economy.”

This secret Tron project (yes, the Foundation has had kept Project Atlas as the secret for quite sometime before its launch) will reward users just for file uploads, thus encouraging them to seed files even after they have been downloaded.  Additionally, storage space will be incorporated into the Torrent system and raise Torrent’s accessibility.

Sun further expressed that Project Atlas will be backward-compatible with all BitTorrent users.

Meanwhile, during the launch of TVM, Tron increased by 4 percent. But at the time of writing, Tron (TRX) has slipped from its NO. 12th position to 13th after being overtaken by Monero (XMR) and DASH. Currently, the coin is priced at $0.02493 despite the successful launch of its TVM.

3 Reasons Why WISE Token Could Be a Massive Winner in 2021

WISE token

After working in proprietary trading for over a decade, I decided to transition to crypto in early 2017.  Although crypto is significantly different from traditional capital markets, I managed to successfully find a niche for successful and opportunistic trading.  While 2017 was the perfect time to get involved, the past few years have proven to be a bit more challenging as far as generating ROI.

Cryptocurrency traders have spent the past several years searching far and wide for the next big winner.  While the market as a whole hasn’t been very bull friendly, one specific area that appears to be gaining traction is decentralized finance, more commonly known as DeFi.  This area generally refers to the digital assets and financial smart contracts, protocols, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum.  The reason why so many crypto entrepreneurs are flocking to this space is that it allows them to create traditional financial vehicles in a decentralized network, outside the meddlesome control of foreign governments.

One extremely popular DeFi project is Chainlink (LINK) which is a decentralized oracle network that provides real-world data to smart contracts on the blockchain.  Chainlink has seen its token price increase by more than 300% year-to-date.    Another impressive project in the space is Kyber Network (KNC) which has seen its token soar from $0.20 at the start of the year to more than $1.60 at present.  Kyber Network’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized tokens swaps to be…

Lotto Nation is Revolutionizing the Traditional Lottery Industry

Lotto Nation

As the global economy continues to deal with the economic fallout due to the ongoing pandemic, companies are coming to terms with the fact that normalcy may not return for quite a while.  Many economists are wondering how the business landscape will look a year or more from now.  It’s certainly possible that many businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, may be unable to survive the current downturn.  But while some businesses will falter, others will emerge stronger than ever.

Traditionally, when economies go through a severe downturn, companies adapt.  Those that maintain the status quo usually have great difficulty while those that adapt prosper and conquer.  One possible example of this is Lotto Nation.  Thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of Nils Thomson, the Founder and CEO of Lotto Nation, the company is attempting to completely modernize the traditional lottery industry.

Current Lottery Model is Severely Outdated

It’s safe to say that nearly every human that has ever walked the earth has fantasized about winning the massive jackpot that would completely change their life.  These dreams have turned the global lottery industry into a $302 billion market that is expected to reach $380 billion by 2025.  Despite this predicted growth, the industry suffers from a variety of problems that are preventing it from really exploding.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that traditional lotteries are centralized.  Because of this, there is essentially no oversight on what a lottery provider…

Aluna.Social

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve, unlock their full potential, and improve trading performance.  Cryptocurrency trading can…
