In recent months, the twelfth most relevant virtual currency in the globe, Tron (TRX), with a market capitalization of about 2.2 billion US dollars has been taking center stage in the token-show frequently in recent weeks. Tron foundation, the much aspiring project aims to build a sturdy infrastructure for a true decentralized internet.
The coin of the hour, Tron (TRX) has been gaining a lot of backing because of their partnerships and proclamations after proclamations. Various exchanges have been showing Tron a lot of support in the recent past with the latest news creating a buzz in the crypto space is Tron’s collaboration with the adult site, Pornhub.
Tron (TRX) achievements so far
The highly anticipated launch of Tron’s new mainnet, Odyssey, was successfully done on 31st May this year without any glitches and hitches. In less than a year of existence, the Tron Foundation managed to grow its team to about 200 developers, release the roadmap to its “decentralized internet,” and amass more than 3 billion US dollars.
Currently, the Tron platform has 254 nodes in different locations in the world and boasts of having attributes like high-quality support, high availability that acts as the basis of all dApps on the platform, and its scalability.

Other significant Tron developments
The mainnet wallet, consensus protocol, and actual structure are the three pillars the Tron outfit is based on. Over the past few months, all three pillars have undergone tremendous modifications translating into additional value boost and efficiency to the digital coin’s worth.
Responses to bugs and cyber threats have witnessed outstanding and continuous assessments being done to make sure the platform is fool-proof of any bugs or potential cyber-attacks. Several problems were reported on the Tron RPC front, but the Tron development team has been able to iron out the problems without interfering with the network’s operations.
The consensus protocol has already gone through complete optimization with the swapping of the token taking place seamlessly during and after the launch of the MainNet.
The Super Representative Election
The community took to the polls on 25th June for the 27 Super Representatives that are meant to assist in the governance of the Tron platform. At the moment, 42 candidates are vying in the polls, but only 27 will make the cut to take the responsibility of a Super Representative. It is hard to tell as of now when the Tron elections will end, though.
Tron’s Secret Project
All lot of chatter has been going around concerning Tron’s secret project that was announced recently by CEO Justin Sun. At the moment, details concerning the project are still on lockdown with no hints on what the project is, what look it takes, or what the project might do. All we know about this secret project of Tron is the launch date; it’s going to be launched by the end of this month.
With so many things going on for Tron (TRX) simultaneously, one would think Justin Sun and Tron Foundation are hitting the deck too hard. The questions like, are the Tron foundation projects more than they can handle in recent times? Will the developments impact its future?
Well, the answer to all such concerns is, to me, Justin Sun is doing all he possibly can to make sure that his virtual currency succeeds. He is making use of his time, energy and resources at full, in the best way he can, which is a thing to praise if you’re an investor and not to point out. If Sun and Tron foundation keeps going like they have been lately, it certainly will help Tron (TRX) touch the skies sooner than many might be predicting.
At the time of writing, Tron (TRX) is valued at $0.03326 per coin which is still on the lower side of what the crypto community had expected, but a price surge is expected shortly.

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…
