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.

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

CoinFlip Scores Big with BRD Wallet Partnership
As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible. While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.

In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country. Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

The crypto market has seen massive growth in the past 3-4 years as it started gaining attention from mass media, which helped in this boom.
From the past 2-3 years, several new cryptocurrency projects were launching in the market. Amid all this, the social media giant – Facebook announced the launch of their cryptocurrency platform, and this news got viral like wildfire. The announcement came forward in June, and the upcoming cryptocurrency is known as Libra, and it’ll come with its dedicated wallet called Calibra.
What is Libra?
Libra is a permissioned blockchain-based digital currency which is being developed under the supervision of Facebook’s vice president, David A. Marcus. The cryptocurrency is under development in partnership with an independent, non-profit member Libra Association. Facebook is the second member of the project, and these companies aim to use Facebook’s user base for the promotion of the digital currency when it is launched. The transactions and the cryptocurrency will be managed and cryptographically entrusted by the Libra Association.
