We all know how important it is to find the appropriate crypto to put our bets on. In fact, choosing the right coin may get us a considerable profit, and some other benefits that, of course, are worth to pay attention to.
Likewise, considering the conditions of the market as of now, it results crucial to find the right option among the whole repertory of cryptos that we can find in the market. Would it be Bitcoin (BTC) or Ethereum (ETH)? Are only these top two guns the safe bets? Nah, we actually have excellent reasons to believe that Tron (TRX), Ripple (XRP), and Verge (XVG) may be right candidates for us to select. Let’s see how it goes.
TRX, XRP, and XVG – What they have in common?
These three cryptocurrencies had a very notable thing in regards to their appreciation and position in the market during last year, 2017. Although this year may appear as a tough one for cryptocurrencies, this is only a true fact concerning volatility, which to say the least is an intrinsic characteristic of the market itself. But when it comes to regulations and the struggle with the FUD, most of the cryptocurrencies had difficult times last year, and that was precisely the time when TRX, XRP, and XVG were shining bright like a diamond.
The three coins managed to close the year being major cryptos in areas such as followers, partnerships, technological updates, adoption, and price; and this was maintained till February of this year when things started to crumble a little bit for the sector. So what are the cards under the sleeve for all three coins here?
What Ripple (XRP) and Tron TRX have to offer
We can all agree that Ripple has managed to obtain a lot of attention from the financial world. In fact, one could say XRP is the most primarily embraced crypto firm across the globe by financial institutions, the fact that the company has achieved with the development of its three products, xRapid, xCurrent, and xVia.
Most of the critiques that Ripple receives are centered on the fact that the company has partnered with several institutions through xVia, and xCurrent, and we all know the one that carries the XRP token is xRapid. However, even when only a few companies have embraced the liquidity solution created by Ripple labs, still the token has benefited a lot from this, making the price of the coin to gain stability and upsurges time-to-time.
As a matter of fact, the token recently received an endorsement by CNBC Fast Money that claims XRP is the crypto that has the most chances to become the next-to-be listed on Coinbase, the preferred wallet and exchange webpage of the community.
For its part, Tron (TRX) is characterized being one of the coins that (most often) tends to surprise us regarding innovation and benefits, and this without keeping into account the efforts that their CEO, Justin Sun, employs to be constantly in touch with its community.
Let’s recall that not so long ago the company managed to migrate from the Ethereum protocols successfully, and the same way, it constructed its very own blockchain, which of course, was made possible (the migration is still going on) with the collaboration of thousands of partners such as Binance.
Furthermore, Tron deployed its Super Representative Elections to build its very own self-governed community, and it was recently known that it acquired BitTorrent, a fact that has a large part of the community waiting for another announcement. Would it be this the ‘secret project’ that Sun announced? We will have to wait for Tron foundation to announce it publicly. In regards to Tron’s secret project, the announcement is going to be made in just a couple of days now.
What about XVG?
Verge (XVG) has a story a little different from XRP and TRX. In fact, the coin has been in a constant up and down ever since it was attacked and lost almost 100% of their value with the intrusion of the ‘51%’. However, it recently partnered with the cannabis company, Royal Queen Seeds, and as it seems it has surged an effect on the price of the coin that now trades at $0.02358 (went in red today with the market trend).
Any of this cryptos has excellent chances of shooting the sky anytime soon. Perhaps, it will be easier for Ripple (XRP) or Tron (TRX), but I’m quite confident that if Verge (XVG) manages to get an upturn, the results will be actually marvelous. So keep an eye on these tokens, they’re inevitably going to surprise us soon.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
