For a lot of people within the crypto community, TRON (TRX) represents an example of how a cryptocurrency should develop. Indeed, in 2018 alone, TRON has gone from being an ERC20 token to launching its own MainNet, numerous projects, dApps, and even other tokens that were created on its own blockchain.

During that time, however, the coin’s value remained mostly unaffected, except when the bearish market would bring it further and further down. However, the coin’s value and its inactivity is only the surface situation. Underneath it, this is one of the busiest coins on the market.

Thanks to its “killer dApps”, TRON has managed to achieve new records when it comes to the number of transactions per day, week, or month. The coin’s trading volume has also reached quite impressive heights on occasion, even beating Ethereum. Furthermore, its market cap is currently at $951 million, which brings TRON very close to the $1 billion-club.

For now, the coin remains in 10th position on CoinMarketCap’s list of largest digital currencies, with Cardano (ADA) being only one step behind, and Bitcoin SV (BSV) standing in the way.

Many in the crypto community have criticized TRON’s creator, Justin Sun, for bringing too much hype to the coin through his constant tweets. According to them, Sun has built TRON on enthusiasm alone. Whether or not this is true is still a matter of debate within the community, but the fact is that TRON is advancing rapidly, especially in terms of projects and partnerships.

It already has a very popular betting dApp, a game that relies on TRX, as well as its own DEX. Furthermore, its mainnet currently has over 900,000 active users, according to Justin Sun’s recent announcement.

Despite the low price, TRON seems to be doing rather well in terms of popularity and usage, which is what is keeping the project among the top 10 cryptocurrencies. In fact, some even place it among the top performing coins of 2018. However, the matter of its actual value remains debatable.

According to predictions, TRON’s value is going to continue its gradual drop over the next few years. While these predictions are not accurate, they are based on the coin’s behavior so far. However, it should be noted that the crypto market still remains unstable and that the situation can change, for better or worse, at any time.

The fact remains that TRX remains among the most heavily-used coins, with a current daily trading volume of nearly $89 million. In combination with its 39 active dApps, TRON doesn’t seem like the project that will lose support anytime soon.

As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible.  While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.  The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above.  In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country.  Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

The market for cryptocurrencies started with the launch of Bitcoin in 2009, and since then, so many cryptocurrencies have been launched that it gets hard to keep track of them. The crypto market has seen massive growth in the past 3-4 years as it started gaining attention from mass media, which helped in this boom.

From the past 2-3 years, several new cryptocurrency projects were launching in the market. Amid all this, the social media giant – Facebook announced the launch of their cryptocurrency platform, and this news got viral like wildfire. The announcement came forward in June, and the upcoming cryptocurrency is known as Libra, and it’ll come with its dedicated wallet called Calibra.

What is Libra?

Libra is a permissioned blockchain-based digital currency which is being developed under the supervision of Facebook’s vice president, David A. Marcus. The cryptocurrency is under development in partnership with an independent, non-profit member Libra Association. Facebook is the second member of the project, and these companies aim to use Facebook’s user base for the promotion of the digital currency when it is launched.

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…
