TRON’s First DEX Goes Live on TronScan

Published

on

TronScan

The eleventh largest cryptocurrency by market cap, TRON (TRX), has recently announced plans to launch a decentralized exchange (DEX) on TronScan. According to the new announcement posted by TRON’s CEO, Justin Sun, the team kept its word, and TRON’s first DEX is now live.

The need for decentralized exchanges

TRON’s goal to decentralize the web has caused this project and the team behind it to make multiple large moves, most of which were in 2018. The project already launched a MainNet, transferred all of its tokens, entered numerous partnerships, and has also announced big plans for the future.

However, while TRON managed to remain decentralized, the same cannot be said for most cryptocurrency exchanges. In fact, the centralization of exchanges goes against everything that cryptocurrencies stand for. In the past, cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology were still new and underdeveloped. The need for exchanges appeared, and centralized institutions took over.

In recent years, however, this technology matured enough for decentralized exchanges to start appearing. While still flawed, many investors decided to support them, in hope of reaching true decentralization. Now, TRON joined this move by launching its own DEX.

Tron’s first DEX

Thanks to projects such as several dApps that have already grown popular, as well as TRON’s new DEX, TRX has seen quite an increase in daily trading volume. In fact, it is now rare for this currency to have a volume lower than $100 million per day. It even managed to break the record previously held by Ethereum.

Many have taken this as proof that TRON’s DEX is already quite busy, especially considering that the exchange is currently offering 10 different tokens, all of which are paired with TRX. These include:

  1. dice/TRX
  2. ton/TRX
  3. IGG/TRX
  4. WIN/TRX
  5. CryptoDivaFund/TRX
  6. TWX/TRX
  7. TronWatchMarket/TRX
  8. SEDD/TRX
  9. CryptoGuyInZA/TRX
  10. CryptoChain/TRX

The exchange has attracted a lot of attention, and supporters of the listed tokens have taken to trading on TRON’s platform as well. In the meanwhile, Sun has invited the TRX community to come up with additional tokens and projects for the purpose of expanding the TRON ecosystem further.

At the time of writing, cryptocurrencies (TRON included) are experiencing another severe drop that has interrupted the recent period of recovery. Because of this, TRON price has dropped significantly, and the coin has experienced a 14.49% fall in the last 24 hours. It is currently priced at $0.018284, although many believe that this is a short-term incident and that the price will soon grow back up.

3 Reasons Why WISE Token Could Be a Massive Winner in 2021

WISE token

After working in proprietary trading for over a decade, I decided to transition to crypto in early 2017.  Although crypto is significantly different from traditional capital markets, I managed to successfully find a niche for successful and opportunistic trading.  While 2017 was the perfect time to get involved, the past few years have proven to be a bit more challenging as far as generating ROI.

Cryptocurrency traders have spent the past several years searching far and wide for the next big winner.  While the market as a whole hasn’t been very bull friendly, one specific area that appears to be gaining traction is decentralized finance, more commonly known as DeFi.  This area generally refers to the digital assets and financial smart contracts, protocols, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum.  The reason why so many crypto entrepreneurs are flocking to this space is that it allows them to create traditional financial vehicles in a decentralized network, outside the meddlesome control of foreign governments.

One extremely popular DeFi project is Chainlink (LINK) which is a decentralized oracle network that provides real-world data to smart contracts on the blockchain.  Chainlink has seen its token price increase by more than 300% year-to-date.    Another impressive project in the space is Kyber Network (KNC) which has seen its token soar from $0.20 at the start of the year to more than $1.60 at present.  Kyber Network’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized tokens swaps to be…

Lotto Nation is Revolutionizing the Traditional Lottery Industry

Published

Lotto Nation

As the global economy continues to deal with the economic fallout due to the ongoing pandemic, companies are coming to terms with the fact that normalcy may not return for quite a while.  Many economists are wondering how the business landscape will look a year or more from now.  It’s certainly possible that many businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, may be unable to survive the current downturn.  But while some businesses will falter, others will emerge stronger than ever.

Traditionally, when economies go through a severe downturn, companies adapt.  Those that maintain the status quo usually have great difficulty while those that adapt prosper and conquer.  One possible example of this is Lotto Nation.  Thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of Nils Thomson, the Founder and CEO of Lotto Nation, the company is attempting to completely modernize the traditional lottery industry.

Current Lottery Model is Severely Outdated

It’s safe to say that nearly every human that has ever walked the earth has fantasized about winning the massive jackpot that would completely change their life.  These dreams have turned the global lottery industry into a $302 billion market that is expected to reach $380 billion by 2025.  Despite this predicted growth, the industry suffers from a variety of problems that are preventing it from really exploding.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that traditional lotteries are centralized.  Because of this, there is essentially no oversight on what a lottery provider…

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors

Aluna.Social

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve, unlock their full potential, and improve trading performance.  Cryptocurrency trading can…
