TRON Independence Day is June 25th and is considered by many to be the biggest blockchain event of the year. Already a great day for all TRON HODLers, Justin Sun has also announced yet another event that is scheduled for the “post-Independence Day” era.

Apparently, with June 26th, only a day after officially entering the new phase with TRX, TRON will be organizing the election for Super Representatives where the total of 27 representatives will be chosen for these positions.

As presented by Justin Sun and team TRX, one of the candidates that will participate in the SR Election is Odyssey (OCN).

Independence Coin Burn to Introduce the Start of the Super Representative Election

Prior to the scheduled SR Election that should take place for the first time on June 26th, team TRX on the head with Justin Sun has announced that they will be having a massive burn of TRX units, while Justin Sun added that the initial coin burn will be the “greatest amount of money in the human history ever to be burned to celebrate a historical moment (Independence Day for TRON)”.

With this announcement, there will be 1 billion TRX burnt within this event, which is equal to 50 million USD.

The coin burn will consequently increase the value of the remaining coins, as after each coin burn, the market capitalization that was previously marked, sticks with the remaining circulating coins for a while.

However, to get back to the point of the story, only one day after the official proclamation of the Independence Day for TRON, the TRX community will be choosing the total of 27 Super Representatives with the first day of election starting on the mentioned date.

The group of the 27 SR will be representing all TRX users, holders and investors and users, while these members will play a crucial role in the further development of TRON network and main net.

As it has been previously stated in the official release from team TRON, anyone can apply to become a super representative and participate the election, while Justin Sun called out to all TRX holders to apply and vote for their favorite super representative that way assuring their Super Representatives taking their spot among the 27 of total SRs that are to be chosen for this role.

Justin Sun added that he will also be participating in the voting process starting from June 26th, stating that the stage Exodus will be ending with the SR election, while Odyssey is to follow up shortly after the 27 SR has been elected by the TRX holders and investors.

TRON and the Role of Super Representatives

The team representatives have stated that over 65 billion TRX will be joining the election of the super representatives for TRX network, while Justin Sun added that these SRs will play an integral part in the further life of the TRON network alongside with the further development of the upcoming stage Odyssey.

With his announcement, Sun also added that the 27 Representatives will be awarded the exact amount of 1,009,152,000 TRX being awarded to the Super Representatives.

The awarded TRX units will be distributed by TRON protocol that is set to award 32 TRX per every generated block, while there will be one block generated per single second.

As far as the role of the Super Representatives concerned, the TRX SRs will be working on providing the needed validation as well as the calculation for the network, while representing the community of millions of TRX users from across 100 different countries around the world.

The governance of the network will also belong to the 27 elected SRs, that way placing TRX currency as a highlight of the development of the network, alongside with presenting the will of the community members, that way making sure that crucial operations in the team TRX are transparent and in accordance with the need of TRON holders.

In general, 27 Super Representatives are to become the official guardians of the network, while working on bookkeeping, generating blocks, and other crucial operations that have the goal of creating a self-governing community while entering the next stage of development for TRON.

Odyssey (OCN) Appears as a Candidate for TRON SR Election

Odyssey has gone forward with announcing their candidacy for TRX SR election already back in April, with an official announcement being released on Medium on April 17th.

On this occasion, OCN team has stated that OCN is aiming at joining TRX by becoming an SR in order to create a “truly decentralized internet”.

Odyssey (OCN) already makes a strategic partner for TRON, so Justin Sun also introduced Odyssey as one of the SR election candidates.

Given the fact that OCN and TRX already share the same goals regarding the blockchain development, this blockchain project seems to have solid chances of taking one of the 27 spots that are reserved for TRX Super Representatives.

However, the votes of the TRX community will show whether OCN will be joining the SR team at end of the election, as “every TRX counts”.

TRON (TRX) Performance

TRX seems to have pushed IOTA down to the spot number 10, while now taking the spot of the 9th best coin in accordance with the global coin ranking list while having 2.8 billion dollars in its market cap.

However, although TRX is seen going up against ETH and BTC on June 23rd, only several days prior to Independence Day for TRON and the announced SR election, TRX is still going down against the dollar with the latest market trend, although the marked drop for today’s date seems to be lower in oppose to its crypto peers.

By dropping by -1.54% against the dollar, TRX can now be traded at the price of 0.043$.

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,…
