Tron’s (TRX) Growing Popularity Through Airdrop



Tron TRX Airdrop

As Tron (TRX) prepares to go live with its MainNet launch that’s scheduled for May 31st, CEO, and founder of Tron, Justin Sun is building coverage and interest by rewarding the TRX society with what he calls ‘TRX candies.’ The TRX airdrops or candies are received by individuals who invite friends to the Tron Telegram Channel. With the TRX airdrop giveaway currently ongoing, what you need to do to become a beneficiary of this giveaway is follow the link allocated and enter your appropriate ETH wallet details.

Insignificant Payout, Significant Marketing Gains

Everyone undoubtedly welcomed the airdrop giveaway as a generous gesture meant to appreciate Ethereum for providing the essential assistance for the ERC20 complaint before the inauguration of the upcoming MainNet. However, it’s the message, and attention the ‘TRX candies’ giveaway draws, the marketing advantage Tron currently enjoys ahead of the crucial launch of MainNet.

At the time of writing, TRX is trading at $0.063 with a total market capitalization of approximately $5.5 billion. A decrease of 1.63% in just 24 hours. This puts the total worth of the airdrop to an estimate of $2.5 million. The popularity of the coin and investor confidence is set to get a boost following South Korea’s decision to make ICOs legal.

However, it’s evident that young people who are getting into the market are standing on the sideline of virtual currency, waiting for the hype to die down. The older generation investors are the ones consuming the Wall Street advice; they have limited understanding of how cryptocurrency works.

Tron’s Hype Machine

With every other Altcoin in the cryptocurrency ecosystem competing against Ethereum (ETH), any positive price change on ETH creates a lot of anxiety and talk among investors. This is because its one of the strongest and stable coin in the market at the moment, and as its normal for critics, they choose to look more at the flaws rather than the gains.

Following the completion of Tron’s airdrop to Ethereum user base, cryptocurrency enthusiasts are anxiously waiting to see whether Ethereum’s worth and prices are maintained or the recent appreciation was attributed to the airdrop. Tron has been and is still gaining impetus, and a bull run looks to be in the offing.

It’s never easy distinguishing fact from fiction when it comes to Tron. Tron’s blockchain has many people excited about the future of online content creation and distribution. However, an infringed whitepaper and rumors that Justin Sun had sold more than 5 billion TRX coins have made some investors uncomfortable with the blockchain.

The investors voiced their displeasure over Tron’s marketing strategies and controversies. They argued that the blockchain should allow its platform to speak for itself and avoid marketing gimmicks like the recent TRX giveaway as empty, propaganda-based marketing that takes away more than it contributes towards the MainNet launch. Even so, what the protestors fail to consider is that there is nothing like bad publicity.

Tron continues to generate commendable recognition for its growing acquisitions and strategic partnerships with barely a month, and just recently, Tron announcing they would be partnering with vSport in creating a prediction platform for this years FIFA World Cup. Right on the money!

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes




While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto Billionaire Predicts Massive Price Growth by 2021



crypto billionaire

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
