The creator of TRON (TRX) Justin Sun has hinted recently that TRON will have another project soon, starting on July 30th. There is currently no information on what Sun calls the ‘secret project’, which has led many to wonder – what is Sun planning next?

TRON’s many achievements

Even after all of the successful projects that TRON has had in the recent months, this cryptocurrency still doesn’t show any signs of stopping. And there were many, many victories for this crypto recently, and if we were to only talk what TRON has managed to do in June alone, it would take us a long while.

Apart from achieving a lot recently, TRON has also promised a lot. Following the launch of the MainNet, TORN has spent weeks uncovering new features that the MainNet will offer. Additionally, there was even an announcement by Tronics University, which is a platform based on TRON’s MainNet that will focus on offering education regarding cryptocurrencies and the blockchain technology.

The announcement did not really offer a lot of detail, but the post did allow the idea that the students might be incentivized to learn.

It’s important to mention that Tronics University is not truly a TRON-backed project. Instead, it belongs to Team Tronics, who was participating in the election for TRON’s Super Representatives.

Justin Sun mentions a secret project

Nearly two weeks back, when Justin Sun decided to commemorate TRON’s Independence Day by speaking in a live stream, he mentioned something that has caught the attention as well as the imagination of many of TRON users. He first congratulated the team for managing to meet all the deadlines and follow TRON roadmap with extreme precision. He reflected on all that the crypto has managed to accomplish so far, and has stated that the next important milestone will be July 30.

Not only that, but Sun also mentioned that this is the date when TRON’s new secret project will start, or at least be revealed. Finally, he promised that this will also be the date when TRON Virtual Machine will be delivered.

This has left the coin’s community quite astounded, and everyone is (im)patiently awaiting the end of July.

TRON Virtual Machine is coming soon

This mentioning of the TRON Virtual Machine is, of course, nothing new, and the team has already launched the project’s alpha version on May 25. The Virtual machine’s purpose is to help MainNet developers to make their very own versions of the blockchain. That would directly allow coin creation, as well as the use of smart contracts.

Sun has described this new blockchain as convenient, scalable, efficient, and secure. This might be a big game-changer for TRON, considering how most of the smart contracts were being created on Ethereum. However, TRON’s decision to enter this field has brought several advantages to those who decide to go for TRX instead of ETH.

One of the biggest advantages is the fact that the Virtual Machine is going to be free for operating both smart contracts, as well as performing transactions. TRON’s goal is to deliver a product that will make the developers’ jobs easier and more economical, which will lower the entry barrier for new MainNet developers.

Obviously, TRON is no more only a cryptocurrency at this point. Instead, it is trying to completely change the online entertainment world, and it plans to do so through the use of the decentralized network. Of course, TRX is still an important part of this plan, since it acts as MainNet’s backbone. It can and will be used for pretty much anything, from gaming to academic portals.

As for the secret project that Sun has mentioned in his speech, both the TRON enthusiasts, as well as the rest of the crypto world, can only speculate on what it might be about. At least until June 30th, when Sun has promised to unveil where TRON is planning to go next.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

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 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…

Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

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…
