As 2018 gets closer to its end, the so-called crypto winter continues, and many of the leading coins have lost a lot in terms of value and size. While there are those who believe that these coins will simply bounce back like many times before, there are others, who claim that the time has come for a new generation to take over the position of leading cryptocurrencies.
While there are many coins that show potential to actually take over, TRON in 2019 is one of those that are most likely to do so. Naturally, TRON itself also has supporters and non-believers, those who claim that it will bring forth web 3.0 and those that say that it is all just hype and clever marketing.
Looking at the evidence, it is more than possible that TRON will actually be among top coins of the third generation of crypto, if not its representative, just like Ethereum was for the second generation and Bitcoin for the first.
TRON in 2018
Like all coins, TRON has lost a lot of its value in January 2018 after the market crashed, and like every other crypto, it has yet to recover from this event. At the time of writing, its price is at $0.016643, while the coin itself holds the 11th position on CoinMarketCap’s list of largest cryptos.
Throughout the year, TRON has been announcing partnerships, new listings, projects such as its TestNet, MainNet, token swap, token burns, Representatives election, the purchase of BitTorrent, and finally, Project Atlas. While all of this only happened in a span of several months, this is only the tip of the iceberg of what has been going on for TRON throughout 2018.
Following the launch of its MainNet, the TRON ecosystem started to grow thanks to various dApps. Many of them are in development, with a few already being out. Many speculated that TRON might join projects such as EOS or NEO in attempting to overthrow Ethereum. However, TRON never had such plans. Its goal was, and is, decentralizing the network, and revolutionizing entertainment industry.
TRON in 2019
As 2019 approaches, the crypto market is in a bad shape. While there are all kinds of opinions regarding the future of crypto, the entire community still believes in some kind of a future and is interested in discovering what it might hold. Right now, TRON’s blockchain is making steps towards becoming a cryptographic asset platform, with numerous ambitious projects in the pipeline.
We have already mentioned project Atlas, undoubtedly the most exciting of all known plans that TRON is working on. It includes BitTorrent, which TRON obtained in June 2018. While only a small portion of BitTorrent users will actually interact with TRON in any way, it is still expected that a lot of new users will enter the ecosystem this way.
The project’s primary feature seems to be TRX rewards for seeding. Seeding is a process that happens after a file is downloaded by users. Users can choose to host said file and allow others to transfer data between each other. While there are many that were doing this already out of the sense of community, there are also many that chose not to do it. Now, thanks to TRX rewards, they might reconsider doing it once more.
What BitTorrent does is similar to what TRON aspires to become, and obtaining it was a big step in the right direction for TRON. BitTorrent also already started accepting BTC, TRX, and even BNB as payments for premium services. This has happened yesterday, on November 28th, and TRX is still growing by 32% at the time of writing, as a consequence.
Another use case of TRON is for paying a monthly membership on Pornhub. Most TRX tokens are used for the coin’s dApps, or in trading.
For now, TRON is expected to continue developing its projects, with a special focus on project Atlas, throughout 2019. As mentioned earlier, its ecosystem is getting more and more dApps, and experts believe that the real production of decentralized applications will start next year. As a result, the coin will get much more attention, and will likely experience a significant price surge.
Whether or not it will lead a bull run, or just participate in one, remains to be seen. However, many are optimistic regarding TRON’s future, its projects, and especially its token.

Lite.IM Dethrones Facebook After Integrating Crypto Wallet With Popular Messaging Platforms
With the crypto markets in turmoil, especially after news about a potential hack at Cryptopia, traders and investors need to turn their attention away from day trading. Instead, crypto traders really need to think long-term and identify projects that are sure to win in the long-term. In particular, one crypto company is making major headlines after winning an all-important technology battle against the mighty Facebook. That company is Zulu Republic (ZTX).
Zulu Republic Develops Lite.IM
Zulu Republic is an ecosystem of blockchain tools and platforms, designed as a place where people, businesses, and organizations can thrive on their own terms. And indeed, Zulu Republic has hit a grand slam with their development of Lite.IM.
Lite.IM is a crypto wallet that has been integrated with several of the most popular messaging platforms such as Facebook Messenger and Telegram. In addition, users in the U.S. and Canada can also exchange and manage crypto balances through SMS. Although not all cryptocurrencies are available, the team has selected four of the most popular currencies which include Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin (BTC), and the native currency of Zulu Republic (ZTX).
Telegram and Facebook Messenger are extremely popular platforms. But, potentially even more exciting news, is that the Lite.IM team plan to announce WhatsApp integration in the next 1-2 weeks. There is a reason why Facebook acquired WhatsApp in 2014, for…
Will 2019 be the Year of TRON (TRX)?
While even the best years cannot help sustain bad cryptocurrency projects, the good and strong ones can do much even when years are extremely bad for crypto. TRON (TRX) has proven this in 2018 by being one of the most active and most popular projects around.
Throughout the previous year, TRON has been making great progress, setting foundations for growth and expansion, which may eventually lead to its dominance over the crypto market. Now, 2019 has barely even started, and it already promises to be a year filled with potential and all kinds of different possibilities for this coin.
TRON in 2018
2018 has started with a market crash that has brought a lot of coins down from their all-time highs. This is true for TRON as well, and it did not manage to avoid being affected by bear market, no matter what its developers did. However, instead of trying to fight the market and its trends, they focused on expansion, development, partnerships, and future projects.
The first big step for TRON was the launch of its MainNet, with dozens of listings and partnerships being announced right before the final launch. After that, the coin transferred its tokens from Ethereum’s network, it had a Super Representative election, and it even managed to purchase BitTorrent, which was a part of a secret project back then.
The project was quickly…
