Tron will leave Ethereum’s blockchain technology (ERC20) behind as this month ends and will become entirely independent. Then their tokens will also migrate on June 25th once Tron’s Main Net is thoroughly tested. At that point, Tron’s TRX won’t rely on ERC-20 at all.
Tron’s CEO and founder, Mr. Justin Sun, started a countdown regarding the event. It’s been embraced by the crypto community and has brought Tron new attention, partners and listings the world over. So far, more than ten global exchanges have declared to support Tron’s migration (Binance included).
Tron’s team has made a point of keeping their community updated by creating a newsletter that they published recently, and no one else but Justin Sun himself authorized that.
The letter detailed all about the new upgrade process and the launch’s schedule. It even included previously unavailable information about a virtual machine that will come online six days before the net release.
Mr. Sun announced that TronVM v.0.1 is going to be released on May 25th, and he stated how excited he and the whole team are about this (they are not alone, the entire crypto-world is excited!). The new virtual machine will allow the old Tron dapps built for Ethereum initially, to work on the new Main Net without problems.
There are adapters that developers can make use of to migrate their apps smoothly from Ethereum to Tron. The VM is a run-time environment capable of creating smart contracts and carrying out transactions using Tron’s new blockchain. A reward program was also announced for developers who move from Ethereum network to Tron.
On the last weekend, May 12th, Tron tweeted regarding the update by posting:
TronVM v.0.1 will be launched on May 25. This version will be fully compatible with the Ethereum VM. All Ethereum developers will be able to use an adapter to migrate seamlessly from Ethereum dApp projects to #TRON . We will offer a reward program, stay tuned!

The whole Tron team is hoping for a seamless, hassle-free adaptation period in which tokenization will get unrestricted support from everybody. The exchanges that carry Tron have been very clear that users will face no inconvenience at all during the migration. Every transaction will be automatic, done by the exchanges and the Tron team, so there is just no looking back at this point.

These developments have helped Tron and its market performance for sure. It’s just been going through the roof. The number of Tron’s TRX holders went above a million which is nothing to laugh at.
The market hasn’t been so optimistic as it’s given TRX a $0.073 value after their highest $0.08. Tron’s has lost 10.4% over the last seven days, but Tron remains the tenth best coin and chances are it will go up again. Consequently, I must say that Tron more likely will throw more surprises on our way even before its Mainnet launch – as this crypto apparently loves surprises.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity
While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle. Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance. One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess. That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS. These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there. While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.
What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?
In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount. There are several examples of this in our day to day lives. Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers. Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has. The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.
The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs. Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…
Hodium Presents a Compelling Opportunity for Outsized Investment Returns
I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018. It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants. Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse. The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.
As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha. In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets. I can remember trading during my high school days. It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom. Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard. Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.
Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques. The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft. That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…
KaratGold Proves Its Business Model By Providing Official Documents
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 Coin is a cryptocurrency developed by the reputable German company Karatbars International, which maintains a leading position in the market of small gold items and investments. The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks. During the past few weeks, however, the KaratGold ecosystem has been a target of unsavory scam allegations.
Karatbars International and GSB Gold Standard Banking Corporation…
