Why isn’t Tron (TRX) price picking-up despite notable 2018 attainments?




Who knew that Tron could have an unexpected price decline right when it was becoming known for the achievements one could only ask for? This is a million dollar question for any enthusiast who is continuously tracking the accomplishments that the firm had in recent times.

In the last 24 hours, indeed, the market has been a little kind to many cryptocurrencies concerning their price index, which was not the case for them the day before when they had a short-term dip in their prices, including Bitcoin which the compass of the digital market.

Alongside the rest, Tron (TRX) has not been left out, like other major currencies it also faced decline to some extent even though the users have been anticipated high expectations for the price surge because of its invaluable successes throughout the year.

The closing days of October proved to be quite incomprehensible for the Tron lovers, as we know the fact that the company has had major accomplishments during the month, but it didn’t really help TRX regarding price, but instead, it lost its price up to 14%.

This digital currency has been declining in price for a while now. Recently the company has made progress concerning its TVM making it a leader complementing dApps and smart contracts to elevate the price index and to make the digital currency stable in the market. The move of the company led by Justin Sun, the founder, made Tron overtake EThereum in its daily transaction size in the market at a certain point.

Tron (TRX) Price Slump

Bitcoin is termed as the leader in crypto-market, and its value movements usually lead observers to identify the upcoming pattern for other Altcoins concerning their prices index. Tron is not an exception to that pattern (at least as of now) as it also has been struggling alongside the market.

Till yesterday, Tron has faced a set back against the US dollar (the cryptocurrency stands in green at the press time). TRX status and patterns suggest that the digital currency might take long to bounce back to its all-time high. In reality, as like all other altcoins, Tron would have to rely on the positive price of Bitcoin heavily. But with no signs of any substantial gains in the market recently, the situation might not materialize for some time as seen considering the above statistics.

Hope and potential are always there for the Sun-led crypto, as they have had a few significant developments recently which are working well in its favor. It got listed on AltcoinTrader just recently, which is a growing exchange in South Africa.

Additionally, a recent report revealed that Tron’s massive technological progress within the year is creating a lot of encouraging information in the market.

The Tron virtual machine, used in the development of dApps is still being optimized, which more likely will lead to an even more efficient system when the optimization concludes. All this are good news as the evolution of the virtual machine is still under development. A couple of games are also being developed on Tron smart contracts.

Consequently, with the high expectations of dApps users in the market, Tron makes the development applications on the same platform as spending money with other platforms. The virtual machine is just expectations of the users, but the real dApps is yet to be seen to fulfill the user’s expectations.

In conclusion, it seems that despite the accountable achievements of Tron in 2018 so far, the price is yet to be appreciated because the whole market has been in bear-hug. Now, as more and more exchanges keep adding TRX (JOYSO did that just yesterday) and its network keeps expanding (remember developers are turning to it in bulk), the price might capture positive effects.

Still, as the crypto is pledged to Bitcoin on all of the exchanges (almost), it won’t go up until the crypto-king gets on the bull. It is still early to judge if that is actually the case, but one thing is for sure, this month might be the turning point not only for Tron but the whole cryptocurrency market.

The Crucial Role of Cryptocurrencies & Blockchain in Modernising The Telco Industry




Blockchain has caused quite a stir in recent years. In fact, there’s a school of thought that firmly believes the digital ledger technology will prove to be the 21st Century’s biggest innovation

There are a great many industries braced for the disruptive force of blockchain, and the sweeping benefits it can bring to telecommunications can’t be underestimated. 

A blockchain is a decentralised, distributed, public digital ledger that’s fundamentally used to record transactions online. Every transaction that takes place is recorded across an extensive array of computers in a way that ensures that any individual record within the chain can’t be tampered with or retroactively modified. 

Because of the virtually impregnable security associated with blockchain and the efficiency that comes with a fully decentralised ledger, there’s plenty of potential for the technology within the telco industry in particular – especially given the financial flexibility that comes with cryptocurrency transactions beyond borders. 

Let’s take a deeper look at the important role that both blockchain and its associated cryptocurrencies can play in modernising and securing the telco industry:

Unprecedented security

The arrival of blockchain is causing a stir at Deloitte. The professional services giant has contributed tens of thousands of words on blockchain within its ‘insights’ network, and there are…

Can Libra help the crypto industry to reach new heights?



Libra is motivated and determined to change the face of payment procedures across the globe and make the blockchain-based project the leaders of payments.

The market for cryptocurrencies started with the launch of Bitcoin in 2009, and since then, so many cryptocurrencies have been launched that it gets hard to keep track of them. The crypto market has seen massive growth in the past 3-4 years as it started gaining attention from mass media, which helped in this boom.

From the past 2-3 years, several new cryptocurrency projects were launching in the market. Amid all this, the social media giant – Facebook announced the launch of their cryptocurrency platform, and this news got viral like wildfire. The announcement came forward in June, and the upcoming cryptocurrency is known as Libra, and it’ll come with its dedicated wallet called Calibra.

What is Libra?

Libra is a permissioned blockchain-based digital currency which is being developed under the supervision of Facebook’s vice president, David A. Marcus. The cryptocurrency is under development in partnership with an independent, non-profit member Libra Association. Facebook is the second member of the project, and these companies aim to use Facebook’s user base for the promotion of the digital currency when it is launched. The transactions and the cryptocurrency will be managed and cryptographically entrusted by the Libra Association.

Note: Libra Association was established by Facebook to look after the cryptocurrency and the transactions, and it was founded in Geneva, Switzerland.

Why Blockchain Projects Keep Failing




If you’ve been keeping up with news coming out of the blockchain community over the past year, you’ve probably heard countless projects hyped as the next best thing—only for them to fall off completely off the map a few months later. While some of these projects offered no practical solutions and seemed destined to fail, others creatively used blockchain technology to enhance the way we perform day-to-day tasks.

So, What’s the Problem?

For starters, many of these founders have no real experience running a business or managing finances. Instead, teams are usually comprised of programmers and tech geeks with the ability to develop blockchain-driven apps, but have no clue about project management, allocating resources, effective team building or marketing.

What’s more, when you look at the average blockchain start-up’s website, you’ll probably find a list of team members with accolades a mile long. And many of these “achievements” are in similar blockchain projects that have yet to take off. This makes it hard to distinguish between what is hype and what is credible information, which scares off all but the high-risk investor.

Project Success Starts at the Team Level

The sudden interest in cryptocurrency and blockchain technology can be compared to the California Gold Rush. Everyone wants to get in on the ground floor so that they can make as much money as possible.

Unfortunately, this mentality isn’t just…
