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.

Cryptocurrencies – a term which has become incredibly prominent in the mainstream media during recent years due to the proliferation of Bitcoin millionaires. As a result, the new form of currency has earned an almost infamous status. However, as with any major step forward, there is still much confusion regarding the use of cryptocurrencies, what different types of innovative electronic cash exist and what they might mean for the future.

We’re putting all of this to rest as we explain what each of the leading cryptocurrencies can do.

Bitcoin

The most popular form of cryptocurrency, Bitcoin was first thought up in 2008 by the elusive and still unknown creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, who published the whitepaper online.

It took almost a decade for the cryptocurrency to reach its peak, but in December 2017 a single Bitcoin roughly exchanged for the price of $17,000, meaning anyone who held a substantial amount of the electronic cash became significantly wealthy.

In its early years, the cryptocurrency was strictly used as an alternative for cash transactions, and predominantly for trading goods and services. However as it has increased in popularity, its range of uses has also widened, now deployed for a variety of purposes including acting as collateral for investments at merchant banks, a direct debit for subscriptions services and most notably for sports betting.

New DoJ Ruling May Cripple Gambling dApps

A new decision made by the US Justice Department has expanded restrictions regarding online gambling in the US affecting gambling dApps. While the Federal Wire Act of 1961 prohibited online gambling regarding sports since 2011, the new decision expanded on this, and it now includes all forms of internet gambling. Unfortunately for many, this now also includes cryptocurrencies.

The new decision came due to considerable difficulties when it comes to guaranteeing that only interstate betting will take place and that payments will not be routed via different states.

The new announcement was explained in a 23-page-long opinion issued by the Department of Justice’s legal team, which pointed out that the 2011 decision misinterpreted the law. According to that decision, transferring funds was to be considered a violation, but data transfers were not included. By exploiting this oversight, it was possible for gamblers to turn to internet gambling. Unsurprisingly, many have realized this early on, including startups, as well as large, established firms. This, of course, also included cryptocurrency companies as well.
