As cryptocurrencies struggle to shake off the bearish grip that has been holding tight ever since January 2018, many of the coins have come close to their next area of resistance, attempting to break it. For TRON (TRX), this resistance sits at $0.032, which is the value that the coin recently approached.

On January 27th, TRX value increased to $0.030467, which gave hope to TRON supporters that the coin might break the next area of resistance and potentially start a new rally. However, on this occasion, it did not happen, and the coin experienced a minor drop in the following hours, which continued during the next few days.

At the time of writing, TRX value has dropped to $0.026446, after experiencing a 1.43% drop in the last 24 hours. This is just above the coin’s first support line, which sits at $0.027. While there is still no indication that the coin will break the support line and continue the drop, its value still appears to be under the bearish influence.

At the time of writing, TRX is the only coin among the top ten largest cryptocurrencies by market cap to trade in the red, while other coins, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, and even Bitcoin SV are currently seeing minor gains.

The second largest coin by market cap, XRP, is seeing the largest growth at the moment, with an increase of over 9% in the last 24 hours.

According to analysts, TRON’s price is not expected to change much in following days, with most of the predictions claiming that the coin has found a type of balance between its first support ($0.027) and first resistance ($0.032). Minor fluctuations between the two are possible and even expected, but the coin will likely not venture far into either direction soon.

As always, there is a chance that a new development or breakthrough might impact the coin’s price in an unpredictable way, and a large market rally or a drop could also impact the coin and lead it up or down. However, if no outside force affects the coin, the situation right now is expected to remain unchanged.

TRON in 2018

TRON has been through a lot in 2018, just like every other cryptocurrency. While the project managed to become one of the most popular ones due to its constant technological and business advances, its price remained unaffected, and most of its movements were downward trends that impacted the entire market.

Meanwhile, TRON paid no attention to the drop in crypto value, and it continued reporting project after project, partnership after partnership. It also managed to beat Ethereum’s record regarding the daily number of transactions — a feat that was possible thanks to its popular new dApps.

At the moment, the coin’s largest project, Project Atlas, revolves around BitTorrent, which TRON purchased in mid-2018. The project is expected to further increase awareness and popularity of TRON by providing rewards for BitTorrent users who continue “seeding” files, thus making them available for a larger number of people. While it is not expected that the entire BitTorrent community will jump to the chance to earn a bit of TRX, the move will still be one of TRON’s largest steps towards decentralizing the web to date.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

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.
