TRON (TRX), one of the most popular cryptocurrencies around, has just announced two big moves that will likely make it even more popular. These TRX coin news include a launch of the first TRON blockchain-based game, as well as plans for rewarding rewards for BitTorrent file sharing.

TRX coin news announces a new blockchain-based game

TRON has made a lot of members of the gaming community really happy with a recent announcement posted by Justin Sun. According to him, a company called BitGuild has been using TRON blockchain for creating the first idle blockchain-based game in the world — Magic Academy.

The game will revolve around the creation of wizards, and especially various upgrade items that will increase their power. Additionally, players will have an in-game currency — Jade — which is based on the TRC20 token. By buying additional warriors and increasing their battle power, players will also be able to attack others and steal their Jade. Not only that, but the game will also offer unique items that will be based on TRC721.

Finally, Magic Academy is written through the use of Solidity programming language, which is also compatible with TRON MainNet via TVM.

BitTorrent users to be rewarded for seeding with TRX

In another announcement, Justin Sun stated that BitTorrent is about to receive a new update. In this TRX coin news, it was announced that users who decide to seed content will be rewarded for file-sharing with TRX coins.

Until now, sharing content was free. Content providers, or seeders, allowed others (leechers) to download it due to their wish to help the BitTorrent community. Other than that, seeders had no greater incentive to save the content or to keep it available for others. Now, however, this is likely to change.

The statement came after the one that announced TRON’s new Project Atlas. The innovation is seen as one of TRON’s first bigger moves on the road to transforming the industry of content distribution.

According to Justin Sun, the new way of content distribution is what Project Atlas is all about. It will also improve the download speed, and it will provide more seeds. Additionally, there will be no mining, and the project will also introduce backward compatibility. This backward compatibility will allow BitTorrent users to enjoy the same services with no regard to their choice of Torrent client.

Seeders will also be able to receive payments from other users for providing additional bandwidth to their equipment. This is how download speed will be increased, while both sides will have a reason to become TRX owners.

According to Sun, the move will eventually empower content creators, as well as their communities. It will also eliminate the middleman, and content creators will be able to reach their communities directly.

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…
