There’s no doubt that when it comes to crypto-related exchange platforms, Coinbase is the absolute leader. This platform has become the favorite among crypto enthusiasts in the whole world, managing to the moment even to have a market capitalization of 8 billion dollars. Both credibility and validation that Coinbase possesses and can grant are undeniable, and that’s for sure, one of the reasons why cryptocurrencies show best of interest in the network.
In this matter, one of the coins that consistently has been showing a great empathy towards the Coinbase net is Ripple, a token that excellently promises to link crypto and fiat currencies in the same spot. Yes, Ripple has created astonishing strategies to grow as a currency, and of course to gain validation as well, but the truth is others have replaced this coin more than once that somehow seem to be worthier of such validity.
Likewise, the current panorama doesn’t look that different as now the rumor that Tron (TRX) may be ahead of Ripple (XRP) in the sprint to gain the endorsement of Coinbase has become famous. We have reasons to believe this is actually true, let’s see how it goes!
Reasons to believe Tron (TRX) may dethrone Ripple (XRP) on the Coinbase race
Coinbase high trading volume preference
Coinbase manages a selection criterion with the tokens to get listed on its platform; one of this is the trading volume of the coin, which of course, the higher, the better.
Even though Tron (TRX) appears currently as the number 9th on the market charts, its volume is way better than the one of its main competitor Ripple. As a matter of fact, Tron (TRX) manages a trading volume of $784,214,000, a figure significantly bigger compared to the $251,503,000 of Ripple (XRP).
Besides, even when the market, as a whole, seems to be in a bearish behavior, Tron (TRX) continues its way to the top with a 10.9% increase in its value just in the last seven days (almost every other country has decreased in value, though).
Relocation of Tron offices
Being headquartered in the same place as the crypto exchange platform can be a very beneficial fact for a cryptocurrency, and that’s something Tron (TRX) is willing to exploit. It all appears like Tron (TRX) is planning to acquire an office in New York City, the place that surprisingly (not so much) happens to be the headquarter of Coinbase.
As the CEO himself, Justin Sun, has explained they are working tirelessly to cooperate with several renowned crypto exchanges among we can find Coinbase, Circle, and Gemini.
Feng Li relationship
Much has been said regarding the fact that Feng Li, one of the most critical investors of Tron (TRX) is one of the first investors of Coinbase too. Although nothing of this has been verified, there are strong reasons to believe it’s actually true, a fact that doubtlessly could put Tron (TRX) in an advantageous position before Ripple (XRP).
The Tron mainnet launch
The whole cryptosphere is anxiously waiting for the release of the long-awaited and announced Mainnet of Tron. Amongst other things, the mainnet launch will represent an incredible boost for Tron (TRX), experts prognostic it will not only increase the trading volume of the coin, but it will also as well shoot the price of the token to the very moon.
With the ambitious initiative, Tron will give crypto users a more secure and scalable platform, and of course, the desirable option for other cryptos to migrate from Ethereum protocols to Tron.
Still, it is early to determine whether this would be a warranty or not for Tron (TRX) to appear listed on Coinbase even sooner than Ripple (XRP). But what we know for a fact is that the current landscape of the token is more than bright.
All of the strategies seem to be well-deployed, and everything indicates Tron is on right track, so stay tuned! Tron (TRX) will definitely throw in more exciting news on our way very soon.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
