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.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
