TRON (TRX) Main Net Launch is Ahead of Schedule

Justin Sun, Tron’s CEO and the public face of the cryptocurrency, just announced an acceleration of their main net release. Although details are sparse, this is great news for investors. The sooner that Tron releases their proprietary cryptocurrency platform, the better. Despite multiple baseless smear campaigns, consistent progress and high-profile partnerships have kept the public engaged.

The launch of a functional main net will allow Tron to begin porting their TRX token over from the ERC-20 Ethereum standard. Fully breaking away from the Ethereum blockchain will grant Tron several advantages. Chief among them is rapid transactions and low fees – two things that are currently burdening Ethereum.

Main Net Acceleration

A more detailed explanation of the main net advancement is expected soon. Meanwhile, several inferences can be made from previous quotes. First, the test net launch will continue on schedule; beginning March 31st. However, the first release of the full main net platform will start on May 31st, over a month earlier than they had originally anticipated. This is a major win for the cryptocurrency. Once the main net stabilizes, they will be free of the ERC-20 blockchain. From there, they can prove what Tron is truly capable of.

Sun has remarked that their blockchain will be capable of 1,000 transactions per second – more than almost all of their competition. Only Ripple is faster among the top cryptocurrencies. Further, their fees will drop to a negligible fraction of a cent – making transactions on the blockchain effectively free. These two factors combine to make Tron an incredibly attractive location for the creation of decentralized media and applications. Dapps are extremely reliant on a free flow of data within a blockchain, and making that system free of any friction is paramount. Many of Tron’s announced partners intend to use the platform for just these reasons.

The Upcoming Exodus

Both the test net and main net launches are part of the proposed ‘Exodus’ phase of Tron’s roadmap. The first of six phases, Exodus is arguably the most critical component of the entire process. Before Exodus, Tron has no proof of concept technology to showcase. Their ambitious roadmap and all-star team go a long way towards making up for that, and it shows in their market cap. When they have publicly released software and the ability for early adopters to start development, we may very well see that market cap explode.

Their second phase, ‘Odyssey’, will pivot the focus from initial development to early adoption. It’s hard to believe that they could increase the pace of partnerships, given Justin Sun’s near-constant acquisitions. Yet, that’s exactly what they intend to do – and that ultimately depends on the success of the Exodus phase. Once they have a fully functioning product, pulling in more content creators should be easy, comparatively.

A New Platform for Decentralized Gaming

We’ve already seen the rollout of several cryptocurrency based games – including Ethereum’s CryptoKitties and Tron’s own TRX Dogs. Both games have gathered a large user base, despite their relatively primitive features. Once the Tron main net goes live, we’ll see a true renaissance in blockchain based gaming. Where mobile gaming is currently one of the fastest growing aspects of the industry, decentralized applications offer an entirely new avenue.

Mobile games are at the forefront of the micro-transaction economy, but the possibilities are endless inside of the TRX blockchain. Fiat currency powers the mobile market, and money spent in one game is effectively taken out of the system. Decentralized gaming can unify virtual currencies – allowing the transfer of TRX from one gaming app to another. This opens up the possibility of earning currency in one game, only to spend it in another – monetizing the user’s play and driving them to invest more time. When players feel they are gaining real rewards, they are more likely to stay engaged.

Scalability and the Rise of Tron

Investors have seen what cryptocurrency gaming is capable of – but they’ve also seen the drawbacks. Long transaction times and high fees have made some of the earliest games decreasingly feasible. The smart developers haven’t seen this as a sign of decentralized gaming not being viable – they are just waiting for the proper platform to exist. Tron’s expressed abilities are exactly what they’ve been waiting for, and the completion of the Exodus phase will prove that to those waiting in the wings.

People are expecting great things from the Tron blockchain, and Justin Sun is eager to deliver. In the past two weeks, we’ve seen a 10% increase in the price per unit of the TRX token – and that’s just based on announcements alone. The release of the test net will give everyone a taste of what Tron can do. It will also give investors the chance to be an early adopter – before the main net rolls out, and the price point of entry rises significantly to match.

The Crypto Space Once Again Divided Over Bitcoin SV

Bitcoin SV

The crypto community is a strong one, one that managed to bring digital currencies from nothing to an industry worth hundreds of billions of dollars. However, while its strength in this regard is undeniable, the crypto community can be just as fragile given the appropriate conditions. With that in mind, the conditions seem to have been set for a new divide, although the cause is once again the same — Dr. Craig Wright and his Bitcoin SV (BSV).

Craig Wright vs. the (crypto) world

Dr. Craig Wright, the chief scientist at nChain, and the creator of Bitcoin SV. has been a well-known and very controversial figure in the crypto industry. Wright was suspected of being Bitcoin’s creator several years ago, which is possible because no one knows who is behind the name ‘Satoshi Nakamoto.’

Wright was believed to be him, and one theory claimed that he and his friend were responsible for giving life to BTC. However, the theory quickly died out, but not before Wright seemingly liked the idea of assuming the mantle of Nakamoto. He himself started claiming to be Bitcoin’s mysterious creator ever since.

Of course, he managed to gather up some followers, but the majority of the crypto community — while confused — did not believe him. Luckily, there is no need for trust, and Wright should easily be able to prove that he…

Are XRP and Ripple Going to Be Worth Anything by the End of 2019?

Ripple

One surprise recently was when XRP took over Ethereum’s long-held second place in the Market Cap leaderboards. It quickly went back to its traditional and respectable third place behind Ethereum, but it could be a sign of things to come.

XRP has a lot of clout in the market because of the platform it is based on, which is Ripple. A coin that is used for a very specific purpose and with a long term goal in mind is always going to fare better than others. Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and others have come about because of disagreements in Bitcoin. Therefore they offer nothing except an alternative to Bitcoin as a pure cryptocurrency, while Ripple (and XRP along with it) has something tangible behind it.

Big Banks Back Ripple

Ripple was created in 2012 for a specific reason. It aimed to become a faster and more efficient method to transfer value between banks and countries. This value can be almost anything from currencies to other instruments. While initially, banks were cautious about investing in the company, recently they have been lining up. The crypto winter has helped with innovation int he industry and Ripple has benefitted immensely for it.

The various payment solutions based on Ripple such as xRapid and xCurrent are seeing a large uptake, and this is having an amazing effect on XRP as a whole.…

From what we have gathered, 94 digital coins amongst the leading 100 cryptocurrencies are also experiencing the rise in price. This information is according to what TradingView published in April 2019.

According to them also, other cryptocurrencies gained in value while others declined. From their calculations, six digital currencies advanced while ninety-four was on the decline. Also, another information shows that the increase in Bitcoin price has reduced the value of other assets such as bonds and stocks.
