The late Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs, was meticulous and particular about how Apple products would look and function. Some had even branded him as a perfectionist with an eye for innovation. He was also a visionary and believed that creativity should not be curtailed in the development of a consumer product. The same visionary characteristic can be seen in the CEO of the Tron (TRX) project, Justin Sun. During the launch of Tron’s Testnets and Mainnet, we saw how he was keen on every detail of the project including constant updates to the Tron fans in a relaxed manner via social media.

It is with such a brief background of the late Legendary Steve Jobs and the Apple company he built, that one can also compare the Tron (TRX) Project to a young Apple company in the late 80s and 90s. Back then, the Apple company was not reinventing the wheel with the Macintosh computer, but rather, they improved on an already existing concept and personalized it for the user. The machine had color graphics as well as developer capability.

Looking at the Tron Mainnet and the about to be released Tron Virtual Machine, we see that it is a bud of the Ethereum platform. There is nothing much different apart from the fact that the Mainnet has 2,000 transactions per second and that transactions on the Tron Mainnet will be free to a certain degree. Any user or DApps that wishes to use the bandwidth of the network that exceeds the ‘free zone’, will be charged extra.

Once the Tron Mainnet and the Tron Virtual Machine are adopted by smart contract developers, here is where the next stage of the Tron Project will begin: massive adoption. The massive adoption will include preferring the Tron Network for DApps and possibly ICOs as well as the yet to materialize concept of decentralizing the web. The possibilities of the Tron project are endless the same way the Apple company has stayed afloat for over 30 years through the release of revolutionary consumer-friendly products.

Apple has continually exceeded expectations by releasing hit product after hit product. Signature products of the company include the iPod, iPhone, Macbook, iPad, just to name a few. The Tron project is sure to release numerous DApps in the future as well as utilize BitTorrent in the grand scheme of things. There is also the added question as to how the adult industry – through Pornhub – will take the Tron Mainnet to a higher level.

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.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
