Tron (TRX): Why Should I Hold Tron?



why should I hold Tron

Every Tron (TRX) HODLer keeps asking the same question, why should I hold Tron? We believe HODLers should focus not on the present, but the future.

We are jumping the gun a bit and time traveling to the fourth quarter of the year. The reason for doing so is that when we dwell too much on the current happenings in the crypto markets, we will most likely lose our focus and forget to remember the main reason we believe in our favorite crypto projects such as Tron (TRX). Many of us believe that these projects are the future, so let us head there and postulate how things will be in the crypto verse with a fully functional Tron Mainnet. The latter platform would have integrated BitTorrent into its network by this time.

Pornhub Is A Golden Goose

From a realistic point of view, the adult film industry is loathed as well as loved by many. So, let us put on our business hats and forget our morals for a bit. The adult film industry is worth $97 Billion annually. Pornhub and Traffic Junky – both of whom accept TRX as a form of payment on their platforms – are the industry leaders when it comes to online content in this industry. They are the Amazon and Apple of Porn and Tron is tagging along seated in the passenger’s seat of a very bright future.

Pornhub currently has a service where amateur performers can upload their content and be paid according to how many views their videos get. With time, this content will be too massive to store on Pornhub’s IT servers and this is where Tron and BitTorrent come in.


The exact method of how the Tron foundation plans on integrating the BitTorrent platform is somewhat vague to many. But Justin Sun stated the following after the acquisition of the peer-to-peer file sharing platform.

“The project is in collaboration with BitTorrent, and will extend the lifespan of their torrents’ swarms, offer rewards to peers who seed torrents, infuse resources into the torrent ecosystem, and establish financial rewards in return. The project will transform the way people share and consume content, helping to re-shape the industry for the better.”

The seeds, or machines with the partial files on BitTorrent, can also store the content from Pornhub that is in excess for their local servers to manage.  TRX will be the standard form of payment of incentivizing the peers to keep their machines connected so content on Pornhub can be accessed quickly.

There is also the likelihood of decentralizing the music industry. Imagine paying for the next Kanye West or Eminem track using TRX.

Decentralized Applications

The Tron project has entered the most crucial stage after the launch of the Tron Virtual Machine. This phase is the DApp phase where the network will truly be used for applications. This means that the over 10 Million users on Peiwo and other Tron-centric apps, will eventually be migrated onto the network. There is the other 150 Million active users of BitTorrent who will also play a part in all this according to Project Atlas.

In conclusion, the current decline of TRX in the crypto markets should not be a cause for alarm for the many HODLers out there. The current value of TRX at $0.0195 is gut-wrenching given all the updates and developments evident with the project in the short time period of 1 year since its ICO. But with the future is looking bright as described above. Q4 of 2018 and 2019 will be a good time period for TRX in the markets. The project is on course towards solving the real-life problem of decentralizing the web. This should answer the question “why should I hold Tron?”

Top 4 Cryptocurrencies to Bet on in 2019



top 4 cryptocurrencies

The crypto winter ended and Bitcoin is breaking through the $5000 resistance barrier and leading a general charge in bullishness among cryptocurrencies has seen more positivity in the market than ever before. However, before any talk of a crypto spring should start, we need to look at what happened during the winter.

Many different platforms were either fully released or improved upon significantly. There has been a surge of innovation and the crystallization of ideas. The market isn’t just about crypto trading or bitcoin trading; it has become more about what businesses will leverage blockchain in the best way. Investors need to look at what a coin offers beyond just being a cryptocurrency. What partners does it have, what is the long term plan and is it liquid enough?

Investing in altcoins has never been a better option than right now. The volatility index shows that the market is growing without having to rely on Bitcoin. While Bitcoin still determines and up or down trend, the altcoins do not follow this trend exactly. More and more tokens and coins are surviving and thriving on their own merits rather than riding in Bitcoin’s wake.

The four coins to follow are our pick for the top 4 cryptocurrencies most likely to give you substantial returns by the end of 2019.

2019 Will Be a Big Year for Luxcore




With the recent surge of Bitcoin in the last few weeks, many traders are hoping for a more profitable year than 2018.  Even if that comes to fruition, my advice over the past year remains the same.  Traders must look for companies and projects that offer blockchain solutions with real-world use and complete transparency.  One company that meets both of those requirements is Luxcore (LUX).

What is Luxcore?

Luxcore is a blockchain solutions and services ecosystem that focuses on developing security and privacy products.  The Luxcore platform utilizes the PHI2 algorithm powered blockchain to build a wide variety of product offerings.  One of the platform’s primary goals is to help close the gap between regular consumers and enterprise users by introducing specific use-cases for each group of users.

Exciting Roadmap for 2019

As mentioned earlier, one of the absolute requirements of building a successful blockchain project is to be fully and completely transparent.  Luxcore certainly meets that requirement with the introduction of their most recent roadmap.

The roadmap does a great job of showing which projects are in development, how far along each project is, and the expected completion date of each project.  With this, LUX traders and potentially interested consumers can follow along and monitor the status of projects that they are especially interested in.

Since many crypto projects have inevitably disappointed the market, offering…

Can XRP Break Out of the Falling Wedge?




XRP is the third largest cryptocurrency by market cap, which currently sits at around $13.5 billion. The coin also has a price of $0.325316 at the time of writing, after seeing a significant price correction of 4% in the last 24 hours.

Just like many other cryptocurrencies, XRP has seen massive losses during the 2018 bear market. However, this falling wedge seems to have seen a real breakout in 2019, as the crypto winter started to let go, and a lot of coins saw significant price recoveries.

XRP’s falling wedge was much more difficult to stop, which can be seen on its long-term chart. But, the recent bull runs allowed numerous cryptocurrencies to finally see growth, and XRP is definitely one of them. The charts also show that the coin’s falling wedge has seen a breakout, which is an excellent thing for the future of XRP’s price.

However, for the coin’s price to truly turn and stay bullish, XRP needs to see larger volumes. The experts believe that this is the key for a new rally, one which would allow XRP to reach true recovery.

XRP price performance and predictions

As mentioned, XRP had struggled to start growing even when most other cryptocurrencies were drawn in a number of bull runs. While the coin has been acting the same as others until mid-February, it is clear that the…
