There’s every reason to believe that Tron (TRX) is severely undervalued

Tron’s stream of achievements has been impressive since it was founded, and things have only been faster and more intense over the last month. And yet, the coin’s value keeps going down (0.020 USD at the time I write this, and that’s after 17% increase in value within the last 24 hours). 

There’s only one explanation for this: Tron’s price is currently not being determined by the project’s or the asset’s value but by perception and the recent bad run that has plagued Bitcoin. There are plenty of reasons to think this, and here they are.

The Testnet and the Main Net was a success


Project Genesis, Tron’s new Main Net, was launched on time and it performed flawlessly. No vulnerabilities, delays, bugs. This is not as common as you could think, EOS launched its own main net at the same time, more or less, and it was a complete disaster. 

And the Tron Foundation has a program that encourages (and pays prizes to) members of the Tron community to search and find problems in the project’s code. They’ve found none because there are none, which speaks very well of Tron’s developer team’s competence.

BitTorrent


BitTorrent was much in Justin Sun’s mind even as Tron was founded. The organization’s white paper mentions it eight times in total. And now, he owns it. Tron will bring together it’s main net and BitTorrent and calls them Project Atlas thus bringing 150 million new users into the Tron community.

Almost 1300% growth in price

Tron started at $0.0019 and is now at $0.020. That means that every investor that has been in since day one now has earned almost 1300% in returns which is nothing short of spectacular.

Pornhub is now taking TRX


Pornhub seems to be quite enthusiastic about digital assets. First, it partnered up with Verge, and now it will also be accepting TRX as a means of payment for subscriptions. This will give Tron’s token a lot more exposure, it will bring in new users, and it will create demand.

Coin burn and lock up


Oversupply has been in potential Tron investors from the beginning. To assuage those fears and worries, a billion tokens were burned right after the Main Net was launched to limit supply. Then the Tron Foundation locked up 33.25 Billion tokens, and they will remain out of circulation until the year 2020 begins. Tron is making sure the token is as scarce as reasonably possible to create a deflationary trend that drives prices up. It hasn’t worked yet, but it’s the right move nevertheless.

BitTorrent acquisition, BitBox listing, and blockchain.org purchase

The list of Tron (TRX) strides does not end, even though the things mentioned above are not that old but still, Tron is hitting the deck extremely hard that there are more recent things we need to discuss. Last month, it was confirmed that the blockchain project acquired the world’s best p2p platform, BitTorrent, which means it now has access to 100 million BitTorrent users.

Now, a couple of days ago, Tron went ahead and purchased blockchain.org domain with the intention to become Google of the blockchain world. And, then right after that, BitBox, a crypto exchange owned by Line (popular messaging platform), added TRX as its very first cryptocurrency on the platform.

In conclusion

Tron has more history in a single year than most blockchain projects have achieved in years. It’s finding adoption, applications, the leadership delivers on promises, and the technology is superior and flawless. 

There is a stark contrast in the way the project and the coin perform as one is outstanding and the other one is dismal. This can only mean that the TRX token value is undervalued as of now. The market owes Tronix a serious correction and, that will make the coin’s value soar. No worries, that’s probably coming.

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.

KaratGold Background

ICTE May Bring About Sweeping Changes for Cryptocurrency Exchanges

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
