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.

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

We are now halfway through 2019, and the situation in the crypto space is better than ever in the past year. Numerous cryptos are seeing large gains, often cut by brief periods of stagnation or small corrections, but the overall sentiment is obviously bullish.

Bitcoin sits way above the $8k mark, and while it struggles to go beyond $8,700, it is still trying to grow. Investors and analysts are quite bullish regarding the foreseeable future, and a lot of altcoins are expected to follow BTC in this regard. However, today, we would like to talk about one particular altcoin — TRON (TRX) — as well as why it is likely to go big in June.

TRON’s progress so far

As many people in and out of TRON community know, TRX is not a project that often sits still. It is rich with announcements, particularly when it comes to his CEO, Justin Sun, whose enthusiastic tweets often seem like hype building to many.

However, TRON made some massive progress in 2018, which was the worst year cryptocurrencies have ever seen. This is not something that can be achieved through hype alone, and the project needs to have true quality and value in order to see such massive development in the middle of the longest and harshest crypto winter in…

IOTA (MIOTA) Pending Update Might Bring Huge Gains in Days to Come

IOTA

The crypto space is erupting once again, and if popular predictions are correct — the growth is only starting. However, in the vast sea of altcoins that hold the massive potential to go big in the future, we would like to set IOTA aside as one of the coins that might blow up quite soon.

As always, there are no guarantees of this, as the crypto space still lacks regulations, and remains highly volatile. To see proof of this, all you need to do is look at Bitcoin, which goes up by $1,000 within a day, only to slowly drop by $700 in the following week, and then repeat the process. In other words, there is still a lot of uncertainty regarding any project, and that includes IOTA.

However, even with all of that in mind, many are quite optimistic about this particular project, especially after a recent announcement. The announcement in question indicates that IOTA is about to see a massive upgrade. In most cases, this would be more than enough of a reason to expect the coin to start performing better. But, in IOTA’s case, this is nearly a guarantee that it will.

The update is believed to carry a lot of fixes for a lot of problems that traders and investors have been reporting for a while. No crypto is perfect, and since IOTA is…
