Despite the fact that the crypto market was far from perfect in 2018, and has actually suffered huge losses, investors have really tested their support for certain cryptos in the last month. Ever since November 14th, the entire market was nosediving into new lows, most of which were not seen in well over a year. Only a few days ago, on December 17th, did the situation start to change, and multiple coins started trading in the green again.

However, the situation was noticeably different for WAVES coin, which started seeing an increase in early days of December. Since then, the coin has seen a surge of several hundred percents, which has made it one of the most well-performing coins this month.

After hitting the lowest point of $0.97 on November 27th, Waves coin started growing. It peaked at $4.43 on December 19th, which is when it experienced a slight drop once again.

At the time of writing, Waves has a price of $3.32 per coin, after experiencing a 10% drop in the last 24 hours. However, the question that has had investors and analysts puzzled is — why did Waves start growing out of nowhere?

Why did Waves coin grow?

The first thing to understand about Waves is that it is a platform created for developing an ecosystem for business. With it, anyone can create their own project, and run an ICO. Additionally, any platform member can use it for sending, storing, and exchanging crypto.

Thanks to the use of blockchain technology, the project is decentralized, anonymous, and independent. The platform was clearly created with a web developer generation in mind, which has brought it to the attention of many in the crypto community.

However, like any other good crypto project, Waves coin has continued to develop and improve, enter new partnerships, and more. This has also led to the creation of its mobile wallet, which was recently improved, and the secret of Waves’ growth might be tightly connected to it. The improvement revolves around the wallet now allowing credit card purchase of Waves coins, that can later be exchanged for BTC or another crypto.

So far, the app has seen over 100,000 installs from Google Play Store alone. The app is also much more than just a wallet, as it offers popular features which crypto traders and investors might find very useful. This includes trading on DEX, different tools, charts, access to fiat and crypto gateways, the ability to deposit, withdraw, store, or trade assets, and more.

Unfortunately, US users will not be able to enter the crypto market by using their credit cards in this app, which leaves Coinbase as the best option for them. The reason for this is the fact that the wallet uses Indacoin, which is not available in the US.

Analysts now believe that the changes made to the wallet might be the reason why Waves is seeing more usage, as well as why its price has spiked so suddenly in a period where every other coin was experiencing losses. However, this is not the only reason why this project deserves the attention of traders and investors.

In addition to its mobile app, Waves coin has shown to be quite successful in providing an ecosystem for token development. While it has already had a few good ones, numerous others are still in the works and are expected to arrive at some point in the future.

3 Altcoins That Are Outperforming Bitcoin and Will Likely Face Consequences

The crypto market is going through a period of massive recovery in the past few months, which has caused the investors’ optimism to return. While all eyes are on Bitcoin (BTC), as usual, the largest coin seems to be struggling with a major resistance level at $8,000 at the moment. While this level was breached a few times now, every breach resulted in a correction.

At the time of writing, BTC is approaching this level yet again, with its current price being at $7,985,79, and rising further. The price managed to grow by 1.06% in the last 24 hours, and will undoubtedly hit $8,000 in a matter of hours, if not sooner.

However, while Bitcoin continues to remain volatile and struggles with waves of growth and decline, there are some altcoins that are not following its path. Of course, most of them are performing in pretty much the same manner as BTC, as they always had. But, a few coins have actually managed to outperform Bitcoin in recent months.

While optimists believe that this might lead to decoupling from Bitcoin — something that only Binance Coin (BNB) managed to pull off up to this point — it is likely that there will be consequences for these cryptos. This likely means that a price drop for these specific coins awaits somewhere in the near future, as outperforming BTC…

Why Binance May Be Crucial for Tron (Trx) to Reach $1

TRON

TRON (TRX) has been one of the most popular crypto projects in the past year. The coin has received a lot of attention from the entire crypto community, and although the impressions may differ —  the fact is that TRX is one of the most talked-about coins, even today.

However, while the project managed to achieve a lot in less than a year — launch its MainNet, start multiple massive projects, launch dozens of dApps, hundreds of smart contracts, its own DEX, new token, and more — its price remains quite low. Undoubtedly, one of the reasons for this is its massive supply. TRX circulating supply is over 66 billion coins, while the total supply is over 99 billion.

Even so, the coin is believed to be massively undervalued, with its current price sitting at $0.028129, according to TradingView. This price, together with a market cap of $1.88 billion, pushed the coin out of the list of top 10 largest cryptocurrencies, and it currently sits at 11th spot. But, many believe that this is not a permanent position for TRON. In fact, its community believes that it is only a matter of time before TRON rises through the ranks, and its price hits $1. And, the way for the coin to achieve this is believed to be through Binance.

TRON (TRX) has been one of the most popular cryptocurrencies in recent years. The project has achieved a tremendous amount of success in less than a year, and while the first birthday of its MainNet is approaching, TRON certainly continues to impress to this day.

With that said, its price is still noticeably low, and many would agree that the project is heavily undervalued. The low price even allowed other projects to push it out of the top 10 list, with TRX currently being the 11th largest cryptocurrency by market cap. However, it is likely that TRON will not remain undervalued forever, and that its price might soon see a surge that its entire community has been waiting for, for a long time now.

Why TRX might see growth soon

As many undoubtedly know, TRON is a lot more than just a cryptocurrency. It has developed a massive ecosystem, which offers a development platform for coins, smart contracts, and dApps. It also acquired BitTorrent last year for its Project Atlas, which will allow torrent users to earn crypto through participation in content sharing.

For this purpose, it also launched BitTorrent (BTT) token, which saw its launch on January 28, 2019 on Binance Launchpad. This was dubbed the most successful ICO in history at the time, although several coins launched since then have broken its record.

In addition,…
