After months of waiting, TRON Virtual Machine (TVM) is finally live. Recent announcements by TRON’s founder, Justin Sun, informed TRX enthusiasts of the new development via Twitter and urged them to enjoy TRON’s groundbreaking new product.

Despite the fact that TVM came a bit later than it was supposed to due to issues with a particular block, Sun’s team managed to resolve everything quickly. As a result, the platform launched TVM, giving the team, as well as TRX community, a reason to celebrate.
Thanks to Tron VM, an entirely new Smart Contracts Era arrived at TRON, which will now be 200 times faster than Ethereum, as well as 100 times cheaper than EOS. Additionally, due to the fact that smart contracts are crucial for the creation of a decentralized web, this marks another step that TRON has made on its way to achieve its goals.
What changes will TRON VM bring?
The importance of TVM lies in the fact that it represents a test environment for dApp creation. With it, developers can easily test and modify their smart contracts and dApps and discover any flaw before they deploy them to TRON MainNet.
TRON VM brings four crucial features — Compatibility with Ethereum, an energy consumption model that is entirely user-friendly, unique virtual memory, and distinct resources manager.
At the moment, developers can create dApps and smart contracts by using Solidity. However, thanks to new Ethereum compatibility, TVM can easily become compatible with other blockchains as well, at some point in its future. As expected, TRON VM is to be governed by TRON’s Super Representatives, which were previously elected by TRX holders through a voting process.
Due to its new virtual memory mechanism, TVM will also reduce the usage of physical memory. This will also reduce the cost of dApps. As for the resource management model, it will enable the sharing of CPU usage and memory alike. As such, it will additionally improve the efficiency of the entire system.
TVM is a project that has been announced a long time ago, and it represents one of TRON’s first truly big steps toward its way to decentralize the web. With a goal that huge ahead of it, it is not surprising that TRX enthusiasts were thrilled that TVM is finally live. The move also reflected on TRON’s price, which is something that only a handful of this coin’s previous achievements managed to do.
Granted, most of TRON’s advances happened during extremely bearish periods of 2018, when the market simply refused to allow TRX price to grow. Even so, it is encouraging to see TRX price surge by more than 5% only two days after a major price crash that has brought down even the largest altcoins. At the time of writing, TRON’s price is at $0.023298, with 5.60% increase in the last 24 hours. Whether this is a short-term surge or a beginning of a new bull run remains to be seen. For now, however, TRON seems to be doing pretty well.

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…
