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.

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.
