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.

In their search for the next great investment opportunity, people often tend to run into Basic Attention Token (BAT). A lot of investors have developed a significant interest in the coin, and are wondering if things are truly as good as they seem.

With so many scams and fake coins out there, as well as bad investments that seem good at first, it is a good idea to be skeptical. However, in the case of BAT, many agree that the coin is an excellent investment that should not be missed or overlooked. So, today, we will discuss why this is, and why you should add BAT to your investment portfolio.

1. The project’s goal

BAT has a goal to solve a problem that all of us are already very familiar with, and that is the issue of online ads. For a lot of people, ads are annoying, often irrelevant, and they tend to pop up in all the wrong moments. No to mention that they are intrusive, advertisers steal or buy your private data in order to process it and target you with more appropriate ads, and more.

Most people choose to deal with this by installing ad block extensions. However, what if there is a better way to go around it?

This is where BAT comes in. The project uses its technology to solve this problem by blocking ads unless users decide to interact with them by…

How and when Electroneum (ETN) mass adoption will catch fire

Before we talk about how Electroneum is thriving towards mass adoption, let’s take on some basics. What is the meaning of “mass adoption” and what cryptocurrencies could really achieve it? The answer to these two questions will ultimately determine the destiny of the cryptoverse.

Sooner or later some tokens will become useful (and used by) a lot of people in the real world. That will create demand for those tokens and that demand will bring its value up. It will be the point at which the crypto market becomes mature, one that answers to real economic forces (such as supply and demand) instead of being a toy for speculators as it still is today.

So let’s start at the beginning. Mass adoption means that, given any kind of technology, product or commodity, at least seven out of ten people know what it and what they can do with it. This definition doesn’t take into account if they actually use it, only if they know about it. Think about Facebook, for instance. Not everybody you know has an active account there.

But chances are almost everybody you know understands what it is and that they could start using it anytime they wanted (if they’re not using it already) at a rate higher than 70%. Maybe a more explicit example is coffee. The percentage of coffee drinkers in the US is about 83% which is enough to ensure it’s mass-adopted. And everybody…

Stellar Lumens and XLM: All you need to know

Stellar

Stellar Lumens is a blockchain project that includes the XLM token. It’s meant to connect banks, payments, and people. How? By making money transfers around the world quicker, safer, more efficient, available to people that are usually outside the banking system at a cost so low that it’s almost free.

Millions of people are using Stellar already. It’s considered to be the closest project to Ripple (hence, its main competitor). But Stellar has found more use cases than Ripple so far and a strategic alliance with IBM. Those two things will end up determining Stellar’s success in the long run.

Stellar’s leadership, staff, and the team have raised a few doubts in the past. This project was founded by Jed McCaleb who also founded Ripple and eDonkey. The network’s governance and centralization could improve regarding transparency as well.

That being said, Stellar’s adoption and development have grown exponentially in a short time. It’s become one of the leaders regarding blockchain structure. And it’s been in the crypto verse’s spotlight for several reasons.

With all those successes, Stellar Lumens could do a better job when it comes to decentralized apps. In third-generation blockchain projects, smart contracts and dApps are crucial. This could allow competitors like Tron, Ripple or EOS to gain advantages over Stellar.

But Stellar’s versatility is such that it might disrupt many different markets. As a payment tool, it can affect the virtual (and the real-world)…
