Tron (TRX) Testnet Surprises the World




Justin Sun, the CEO of TRON, surprised the world by introducing TRON’s testnet. TRON has depended on the ERC20 TRONix token or the Ethereum network all this while. However, TRON’s success story seems to be beginning now as they transfer all their 100 million users to their brand new central system which will be launched in June.

TRON is helping content creators establish a direct network to their customers, making sure that there are no intermediaries. The process will make sure that the user data is protected as well.

Impact of the Testnet

Although the company expected a positive outcome from this new decision that they have made, it looks like TRON is not really meeting such an expected outcome.

The projects market cap has fallen to $900 million as of yesterday. However, this could also be a result of the fall in the overall crypto market. Over the last few days, the market is witnessing a downgrade as most of the prices seem to be going down.

This launch of the Testnet will be very helpful as it gives the project enough data to perform such a transfer. Some predict that although TRON has seen a massive dip earlier this year, there are chances that the price will go up by the month of May.

With this new launch, the company also announces that TRON will make sure to meet its 2018 goals. According to users, the 26-year-old CEO might also be aiming at TRONs potential success as the most substantial Blockchain dApp platform. This new plan regarding the migration will be released within this month.


In a pursuit to meet the expected goal, TRON is also starting a campaign in order to have a global look. This way they will be achieving a global reach and can also get listed in the significant cryptocurrency exchanges. The company expects to be listed on Coinbase as this will help the value to go up a lot more than it is now.

Many investors have been quite critical of TRON’s market impact. Nevertheless, the company is sure to make some difference because they are hoping to get nearly a hundred members in order to make sure there is a smooth operation after Testnet is proved successful. They are also looking to get team members from their partners such as Alibaba.

Since there are many other coins of high-demand, it is not very easy for TRON to make such a massive impact at once. The problems that affect the blockchain technology and digital currency will eventually play a negative role in all the other coins. At this moment even the top coins like Bitcoin is facing a huge crisis.  And so the growth of other coins is likely to be impacted as well

Although the launch of Testnet was a considerable surprise to the digital currency market, this transfer is only a Testnet. The impact of this new move is yet to be witnessed. We will soon know whether TRON will become successful or not. At this moment only predictions can be made.

Ripple XRP Mega Breakout: What’s Next?



Ripple XRP mega breakout

The Ripple XRP mega breakout that we were calling for happened and happened much quicker than anyone expected. As we said yesterday:

Nonetheless, IF, Ripple is capable of going ‘topside’ of the .38 figure at any point in the days/weeks ahead, such development, should it occur, would likely trigger its next advance into the .42 – .47 zone, representing a 30-40% move from present levels. On the flip-side, the .25 – .26 area should offer short-term potential support.

XRP is now sitting at .51704  as we write this article this morning, representing gains of 61% since we alerted our readers and our Global Elite email newsletter members.

Ripple XRP Mega Breakout

The Ripple XRP mega breakout is significant because it’s the first time XRP has been above its 50-day moving average since May. Right now, the RSI is approaching 80, so we are in overbought territory and we expect the price to consolidate around the .42 to .47 level before resuming its uptrend.

While some are looking at this as an opportunity to short XRP, we are not of that camp. While some can book some profits and use a trailing stop, any integration of XRP with xRapid has the ability to create a tremendous move in XRP. As Travis Kling said this week on the Off the Chain podcast with Anthony Pompliano, XRP could be the quickest five-bagger investors…

Litecoin Cash (LCC): The potential mover?



Litecoin Cash

Litecoin underwent a hard fork in the past, and that is what led to the creation of Litecoin Cash. Bitcoin has also experienced a hard fork, which has led to the creation of Bitcoin Cash, so this trend is not necessarily brand new.

Forks have occurred pretty often now in the cryptocurrency community, and the perception is that it probably will continue to, as long as the need (forks are often created to overcome issues faced by the originals) remains there.

While the market has been bearish for most of the year, it has been showing some definite signs of life, especially when we look at the kind of price action that has been happening with Ripple recently. Litecoin is also rising in anticipating of its hard fork, which is to be expected.

For those who are unaware, Litecoin Cash was created earlier this year. 10 Litecoin Cash was given to every investor who had 1 Litecoin – and that one move, it’s easy to see, was very massive concerning value.

Charlie Lee, the founder of Litecoin, has come out against LiteCoin Cash, calling it a scam. Many cryptocurrency influencers have come out against Litecoin cash, although there are still others that believe that this is only because the project threatens them.

The Stage is Set for Stellar XLM vs XRP




The digital asset of XRP, did something spectacular on the 18th of September when it shocked the crypto-markets by rising in value by 21%. In a time period that was less than 5 hours, XRP spiked from levels of $0.273 to those of $0.332 and has continued rising. The digital asset is currently valued at $0.36.

xRapid Factor

The reason for the sharp increment in value of XRP was news that the Ripple company was going to launch xRapid in the next month or so. This was after the firm’s head of Regulatory relations for Asia-Pacific and the Middle East, Sagar Sarabhai, made the following comments during a CNBC interview on the 17th of September:

“I am very confident that in the next one month or so you will see some good news coming in where we launch the product live in production.”

Stellar’s Cross-Border Payments

The news of Ripple launching xRapid has come 2 weeks after the Stellar project and IBM, announced that they were entering the industry of cross-border payments through their new service known as IBM Blockchain World-Wire. The new payment settlement service has been quoted as being ‘near instant’ meaning that it will probably rival the transactions time seen in the xRapid pilot tests of 2 – 3 minutes earlier on in the year.
