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 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.
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.

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…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
