Thursday, 4th October saw a mixed crypto market with some of the coins still caught-up in the bearish atmosphere while others are staying calm. Despite the boring market trends, some cryptocurrencies have seen surprise spikes. Talking about the top 15 digital coins, only Tron (TRX) is enjoying an accountable price increase today.
At the press time, Tron (TRX) shows a spike of 6% in the last 24 hours. The only other cryptocurrency accompanying it is EOS after surging by 2.47%. In comparison, EOS is moving up at a meager rate, and the only name that market can hear right now is TRX.
Tron has not shown a price increase in the last 24 hours only, but its last seven days average shows green numbers too. Talking about 7-day average, TRX has the second best being 2.63% in green after Binance Coin’s 3.41% (BNB is up by only 0.33% taking the last 24 hours in account). At the time of writing, Tron (TRX) trades at $0.02269 with a market cap of $1,498,620,309.
Tron’s claim to the fame is its aim of decentralizing the whole internet as its primary objective. The company’s USP is that it aims to make content creators reach their audiences and get paid directly, without any mediators like Youtube.
Over the last few months, Tron has been in the news (quite a lot) with numerous projects and announcements being tied to the blockchain company. It won’t be wrong to say that Tron has been the ‘center of inclination’ in the crypto-universe for the last few months. The MainNet launch, blockchain upgrade, token migration, BitTorrent acquisition and constant listings on top exchanges have played an excellent role in the growth of Tron (TRX).
The latest spike in the price of cryptocurrency is believed to have come from the success announcement of uTorrent Web, a service that Tron Foundation launched just about a month ago post their BitTorrent purchase.
The CEO of the company, Justin Sun, took to Twitter today where he announced the initial success of the uTorrent web. Mr. Sun affirmed that the service has reached 1000K daily active users already, which indeed is a great achievement given that it is merely a month of age.
µTorrent Web already surpassed 1,000,000 daily active users! This new product officially launched a month ago offers a #streaming and torrenting experience. You can download the #Windows version here https://t.co/Gs6XglgUrG
Mac version in the works, stay tuned ???? https://t.co/UTiMH30G5r

Apart from the uTorrent web success, another potential lifter for recent TRX price is the fact that Bitfinex announced fiat expansion for the cryptocurrency today, too. The newly added fiat pairs by the exchange include TRX/EUR, TRX/JPY, and TRX/GBP. Bitfinex tweeted:

Subsequently, Exodus, a widely-used crypto wallet announced its support for the TRX mainnet just yesterday. Thanks to the recent Exodus support, users can now exchange the cryptocurrency with almost fifty assets directly. Some of them include DGB, XLM, OMG, XRP, BTC, and ETH.
Good news thks for your hard work ????

Building Your Nest Egg Brick By Brick: Are Micro-Investments Here to Stay?
No matter what our goals are, sometimes just getting started can be the most difficult part of building our savings up. When it comes to investing, many of us are wary of parting with our money to generate more financial security in the future. But what if you can build significant savings without even noticing?
That’s the aim of the micro-investing apps that have come to dominate online stores across Android and iOS. Today, more fintech startups are working on delivering refined solutions that encourage minuscule investments at a more frequent rate.
Micro-Investing apps will look to make saving more accessible to young people – many of whom in the UK have little-to-no money tucked away for a rainy day.
However, the prevalence of money-saving technology and the disruptive chaos of the COVID-19 pandemic appears to have prompted a widespread increase in households saving more of their disposable income:
With micro-investing platforms playing a role in bringing UK household savings back up to five-year highs, is it fair to say that little-by-little investing is here to stay? Let’s take a look at how micro-investment platforms could revolutionise how we manage our finances:
What is Micro-Investing
Micro-investing, or sparse change investing, is a relatively new development in fintech. It effectively enables users to put away small amounts of money towards their long, or short, term goals. The idea…
