At the time of writing, Tron (TRX) is priced at $0.03669 (went up by 6.08% in last 24 hours) with a market capitalization of about $2.3 Billion, according to CoinMarketCap. The digital asset has been trending due to its recent activities. It is worth noting that Tron (TRX) stands No.1 out of the top 10 most mentioned cryptocurrencies on Twitter. Others are BTC, ETH, LTC, XRP, XVG, DGB, BCH, ADA, and EOS, according to CoinTrendz.com. It seems Tron’s CEO, Justin Sun is making sure Tron is on a futuristic path for mass adoption.

Why is Tron (TRX) trending globally on social networks such as Twitter? It is because of its goals to transit the world to a decentralized future.

Tron’s BitTorrent acquisition is not an ordinary thing

Tron is a blockchain platform that uses the decentralized technology for content creators to create and share contents. The blockchain platform also enables content creators to own their data without restrictions. As mentioned above, the blockchain protocol went ahead to acquire BitTorrent.

After the launch of Tron’s mainnet, the co-founder of BitTorrent recently declared that Tron has purchased BitTorrent for $140 million USD. Although, this acquisition hasn’t been confirmed by Sun yet.

Wondering how this all started? Well, there have been speculations that Tron will acquire BitTorrent since last year due to the fact that Tron Foundation was interested in the company. During that time, Sun placed a restraining order on BitTorrent to prevent the company from seeking other buyers during the time of bidding. After some time, Sun removed his restraining order and went on to buy the company.+

BitTorrent is a company that had raised millions even ten years ago in the entertainment industry with its P2P network, but along the way, their goals weren’t able to pull through and as a result, they decided to lay off some staff, and change the way services are rendered.

Later onwards, the company recorded a huge success and began to get more than 100 million users every month as a result of its P2P services. Tron’s acquisition of BitTorrent is a major step by the platform to decentralize the world and change the entertainment industry once and for all.

Tron wants to create its own free content platform by making use of its blockchain technology. Tron’s acquisition of BitTorrent will enable its users to create, distribute, and store data without being charged a dime. This feat will also enable people to create a decentralized platform for sharing contents.

Over the years, the sharing of contents for entertainment can only be done on platforms like Facebook, YouTube, Stream, etc. But with Tron’s recent acquisition and its goals to decentralize the world, there could be a big change and a revolution in the entertainment industry very soon.

It is important to note that major exchanges have resumed the deposit and withdrawal of TRX after Tron first moved its tokens from ERC20 to its mainnet tokens. Exchanges such as BitFinex, CoinEgg, and Binance have stated their support for the digital asset.

There are lots of good things surrounding Tron and its future – but currently, the digital asset is planning to improve its services and lead the way in decentralizing and changing the world for good.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
