when will TRON get to $1

TRON (TRX) has been one of the most promising crypto projects to date. Almost every other day, TRON is announcing new progress, new big projects, another partnership, and alike. Its creator, Justin Sun, has also managed to create one of the strongest and most supportive crypto communities around TRON.

With all of that taken into an account, TRON should be as huge as Bitcoin by now, right? Well, not quite. In fact, the coin’s value is only a fraction of a cent. However, there are multiple factors that have led to this, and the current situation is likely not going to remain forever. So, let’s take a closer look at the coin, and try to figure out when will TRON get to $1.

Why is TRON’s price so low?

In a lot of ways, the price of a cryptocurrency is one of its main representatives. This is especially true when it comes to newcomers to the crypto world, that are not yet aware of how to properly study a certain coin. With that in mind, TRON’s price would make you think that it is among the worst coins around. But why is its price so low, if the project has had so much success, especially now, in 2018?

Well, there are a few reasons. The obvious one is the bear market that has held a tight grip on the entire crypto world since January. This is old news by now, but in short, the losses were so great that a lot of coins managed to lose over 90%. Even the mighty Bitcoin is only valued at $6,400 at the time of writing, while in January its price came to $20,000.

Naturally, TRON was no exception, and the coin fell to some new lows. Another reason why its price is only $0.018648 right now is its huge circulating supply, as well as its, even larger, total supply.

When you look at Bitcoin, it’s price is dominant when compared to any other coin. No other coin even comes close, in truth. However, Bitcoin’s total supply is only 21 million BTC. Its circulating supply is barely over 17 million BTC. Now, compare that to TRON’s circulating supply of 65.7 billion TRX, and a total supply of 99 billion, and you get the idea why the coin’s value is as low as it is.

What can be done about it?

TRON has been one of the busiest cryptocurrencies around, and it has done a lot to improve its value. The value of the digital coin mostly comes from how useful it is, and TRON has made itself very useful. It did so through different partnerships, huge projects, personal expansion, and alike. However, likely due to the bear market, this was simply not enough.

The coin also tried to tackle its oversized supply through token burns. Ever since the launch of its MainNet, TRON has been transferring its coins to a new blockchain. The leftover coins that are still in form of ERC-20 tokens have been burned on several occasions so far. However, there is still too much TRX around to impact its price in any important way.

So, when will TRON get to $1?

This is a difficult question to answer, especially due to the market’s behavior. A lot of analysts have been predicting the coin reaching $1 before the end of 2018. However, that seems less and less likely to happen as we approach the date. It would take a huge change for such a jump to occur, and if nothing like that happens, the earliest that we can expect TRX to hit $1 is at some point in 2019.

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.

KaratGold Background

KaratGold Coin is a cryptocurrency developed by the reputable German company Karatbars International, which maintains a leading position in the market of small gold items and investments. The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
