Why Hold Tron? Project Atlas and More

Why Hold Tron? The Tron Foundation has constantly shown why we believed in their vision one year ago when Justin Sun came out gun blazing to announce the ICO. Back then, decentralizing the web was just a concept on a piece of paper but it is slowly becoming a reality with the daily progress of the Tron project and its ecosystem.

Custom Token on BitTorrent

This then brings us to how BitTorrent will be integrated onto the Mainnet through Project Atlas. The project and the eventual product will bring the future of how content is distributed on the web. Anyone who has downloaded files via any Torrent knows that there are times when the downloads are not active due to lack of peers who are online for you to download from.

Now here is where the BitTorrent protocol will integrate a system of incentives on the blockchain through a custom token. This, in turn, means that users who participate will exchange tokens in return for resources and services on the BitTorrent platform to further aid in faster downloads and increasing the availability of torrents.

Tron Token Decentralized Exchange

The Custom token that will work on BitTorrent has yet to be named or created at the moment of writing this. But when it goes live, it should be available in the new Decentralized trading platform being created for custom tokens on the Tron network. Think of Ethereum and how we have IDEX or Ethfinex that cater to ERC20 tokens. The Tron Decentralized exchange will perform a similar service thus signaling a good Q4 for Tron.

Tron Virtual Machine and Future Updates

A Tron decentralized exchange brings us to the recent development that the Tron Virtual Machine will be activated around the 8th of October. The team at Tron made this announcement in their most recent development update that stated the following:

It’s expected that the TVM will be officially activated after the voting on October 8. By then, the 3 main features: the committee, the TVM and decentralized exchanges will be activated.

In addition, TRON plans on having one small upgrade and a big one for each quarter.

The small upgrade mainly focuses on performance enhancement. It’s optional based on what you need. This upgrade will be completely compatible with the previous version.

More Accounts than EOS and High Transaction Volume than ETH

It is with the above progress that it’s not surprising that the number of accounts on the Tron network has surpassed those on the EOS network in the number of active accounts. The network has also surpassed Ethereum’s average daily transaction volume.

Justin Sun made the announcement of the new benchmark via a tweet that stated the following:

1. 411,032 #TRON accounts, 20% more than #EOS, 13 times higher than that of #ETH

2. 440,135 peak number of single-day transaction volume, 49 times higher than #ETH

3. 146,041 average daily transaction volume, 29 times higher than that of #ETH

4. Physical decentralization

Similarities with ETH Path in 2017

To note is that the Ethereum network made it possible for ETH to skyrocket in the market due to the ICO boom and DApp creation on the network for the past 2 or so years. This then means that it is possible for TRX to experience similar gains moving forward. Earlier, we had calculated that ETH gained by 13,900% in one year to its peak value of $1,400. If TRX were to follow a similar trajectory, the digital asset will be valued at around $2.78 twelve months from now.

In conclusion, the Tron project has made major strides in the last one year. The above few fundamental reasons are why it is wise to keep holding Tron for the foreseeable future.

ICTE May Bring About Sweeping Changes for Cryptocurrency Exchanges

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…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

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…

Cryptocurrency traders have enjoyed a Bitcoin moon shot during the past few months.  Those gains have created a much more enjoyable environment for crypto bulls.  Whether it’s a temporary or permanent increase remains to be seen but hitting the 10,000 level has put everyone in a better mood.  Unfortunately, altcoins have not had experienced the same type of gains and are lagging significantly behind Bitcoin.

I’ve written articles in the past year that there is at least a decent chance that many altcoins won’t survive the current environment.  The ones that do will do so because they created a platform that has real world usage.  After spending countless hours researching many of the existing altcoins, I’ve yet to see a company that is more promising than Encrypgen (DNA).

Encrypgen Background Information

Encrypgen is a genomic blockchain network that provides customers and partners with best-in-class, next generation, blockchain security for protecting, sharing and re-marketing genomic data. This creates a fair marketplace for a person’s DNA that can be stored privately and sold (if a person wishes to do that). A person’s DNA can also be shared privately and securely with their physician for their personalized care.

Typically, people can send their DNA off to a lab to find out who they are and where they come from. As fun as that might sound, there is a significant security problem…
