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.

As the global economy continues to deal with the economic fallout due to the ongoing pandemic, companies are coming to terms with the fact that normalcy may not return for quite a while.  Many economists are wondering how the business landscape will look a year or more from now.  It’s certainly possible that many businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, may be unable to survive the current downturn.  But while some businesses will falter, others will emerge stronger than ever.

Traditionally, when economies go through a severe downturn, companies adapt.  Those that maintain the status quo usually have great difficulty while those that adapt prosper and conquer.  One possible example of this is Lotto Nation.  Thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of Nils Thomson, the Founder and CEO of Lotto Nation, the company is attempting to completely modernize the traditional lottery industry.

Current Lottery Model is Severely Outdated

It’s safe to say that nearly every human that has ever walked the earth has fantasized about winning the massive jackpot that would completely change their life.  These dreams have turned the global lottery industry into a $302 billion market that is expected to reach $380 billion by 2025.  Despite this predicted growth, the industry suffers from a variety of problems that are preventing it from really exploding.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that traditional lotteries are centralized.  Because of…

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…

As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible.  While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.  The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above.  In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country.  Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

In early October, CoinFlip announced on its Twitter that it had officially partnered with BRD Wallet to re-introduce their crypto ATM map.  Now, BRD wallet users will be able to locate their nearest CoinFlip ATM and receive a 10% discount for both buys and sells.  BRD brand awareness is growing quickly within the crypto community thanks to its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit.  The team strongly believes in the value of financial freedom and independence, and want to empower people across the world by leveraging the possibilities that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies provide.
