Tron’s (Trx) Rapid Development Hints at the Project’s Full Potential

It has been less than a year since TRON (TRX) launched its MainNet, but during this short period, the project has seen a massive amount of success. Not only did it partner up with countless exchanges and other projects, but it also went through a token migration, token burns, and a Super Representatives election.

Then, it acquired BitTorrent and announced Project Atlas, which later led to the launch of the BitTorrent token (BTT). In addition, it launched its own DEX, its ecosystem exploded with dApps and smart contracts, and it even managed to beat several records regarding the number of transactions per day and week.

While all of this already seems like more than a project should be able to achieve in less than a year — it is only the tip of the iceberg in TRON’s case. Misha Lederman, who has been elected as an advisor to the dApp Evolution Ecosystem, and who is deeply respected within the TRON community, often points out TRON’s achievements.

He recently noted that TRON’s number of dApp users exceeded 88,928 on April 30th, while the project had over 407 active dApps at the time. In addition, TRON is nearing its 1,000th smart contract, which proves that developers are favoring the ecosystem more than ever.

While the project is young, it is extremely innovative, brimming with enthusiasm, creativity, and has a rapidly-growing user base. There is proof of this as well, as the project already has over two million addresses.

With all of this in mind, it is clear that TRON is slowly, but surely, becoming one of the most popular platforms in the world of blockchain. The project has managed to avoid controversies and scandals, unlike other coins, particularly Tether (USDT). Meanwhile, TRON’s dApp number is growing as well, with new ones getting launched all the time. With a situation like that, it would not be surprising if TRON surpassed EOS in terms of dApp innovation, and become the so-called ‘Ethereum Killer.’

TRON vs EOS and Ethereum

While TRON may be at the 11th spot in terms of market cap, it is only third when it comes to dApps. EOS still holds the second place, while Ethereum leads. However, this situation might change in weeks to come, if TRON’s development continues at this pace.

Ethereum will be a much more difficult project to surpass, as it already has over 1700 dApps, where TRON still has just a bit over 400. However, it is also important to note that Ethereum has been developing dApps for nearly four years now, while TRON had less than one. In addition, the speed at which TRON dApps are coming out is increasing, while Ethereum’s developers appear to be migrating away in favor of EOS and TRON.

Finally, as proof that the perspective does matter, there is CCID (Chinese Ministry of Industry and Technology Development), which made its own list of best projects. On their list, EOS currently leads as the best one, while TRON is a close second. However, this list does not focus on the number of dApps, but instead on creativity, innovative ideas, the applicability of an asset, and essential technological ability.

TRON is certainly deserving of the high rank, and it is likely only a matter of time before it surpasses EOS. As for Ethereum, it is still one of the most important projects ever to be developed, and that will never change. However, Ethereum’s focus is on smart contracts, rather than the coin or dApps, which is still an area where the project dominates, and that is unlikely to change anytime soon.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
