Tron (TRX) is one of the biggest cryptocurrencies in the crypto market (and stays in the spotlight, always). The worth of the digital asset increased by 2000% in mid-December 2017 to early January 2018. As one can imagine, Tron’s 2000% growth made it attract lots of crypto investors in the crypto sphere.
Today, everyone around the world has heard of Tron (TRX) – in one way or the other. But in this article, let’s find out what makes this cryptocurrency extremely promising. Without much ado, let’s take a look at Tron (TRX).
Tron (TRX) in brief
Tron is a decentralized network that focuses more on the entertainment industry. This platform ensures P2P technology and makes use of blockchain technology to share and receive contents globally; let’s just say it’s the future of the entertainment industry (yes, it is safe to say that).
The main coin of Tron is Tronix or TRX, and the easiest way to TRX is by sharing contents through the platform.
Moving forward to Tron’s market overview, Tron’s current price sits at $0.03336 (at the time of writing), its market capitalization is $2,193,034,839, and the 24-hour trading volume is $175,410,000 – according to CoinMarketCap. An important fact about Tron is, TRX is not mineable, unlike Bitcoin.
The reason why Tron wants to revolutionize the entertainment industry
In today’s world, content sharing and creation can only be done through Facebook, Netflix, YouTube, Apple, and Spotify mainly. However, if you are the type that would love to make huge bucks through blogging, music, videos, and so on, then you need to go through one of these middlemen (YouTube and the likes) to reach your target audience.
Here is where Tron comes in – Tron is a platform that wants to eliminate the use of middlemen before contents can be shared. Facebook, YouTube, Apple, Netflix, etc., always take a certain percentage of the revenue that your contents generate. In fact, these platforms will own a right on the revenue that you make. They also have the authority to get your contents censored. and there is nothing you can do about that.
However, problems like these will not surface if content providers use a platform like Tron (TRX). Tron’s dream (we would rather say purpose) to revolutionize the industry is huge and the platform is seen as the future.
If a user makes use of Tron’s protocol, he/she has the ability to create, share, and upload contents to the blockchain network. Once done, the user can get paid based on the number of views that he/she receives without having to pay fees to any third-party.
Moreover, it is important to know that Tron’s community decides the success of your contents. This means that your contents can’t be censored or controlled by anyone at any time.
The Tron’s Foundation
Tron Foundation is headed by Justin Sun and it is a non-profit company that is based in Beijing, China. The aim of the foundation is to ensure that its platform works with all fairness and transparency.
The Tron Foundation is under the regulation of the Accounting and Regulatory Authority of the company and the Company Law of China.
Justin Sun, the CEO of Tron Foundation, has had an astonishing career and he was listed in “Forbes 30 under 30 in Asia.” His application, Peiwo, has more than 15 million subscribers worldwide and it is the first application that streams and accepts cryptocurrencies.
Even though Sun has been recognized as the protégé of Jack Ma (the founder and CEO of Alibaba, I don’t think there was a need to mention this but I did anyway), he was also been known to be dedicated and diligent during his study days at Hupan University. Justin Sun also graduated from the University of Pennsylvania.
Tron’s collaboration with top financial companies
Tron (TRX) has bagged lots of partnerships with different companies in the Financial Industry and some of them include Bitman, oBike, and Zag S&W. Of course, financial entities are not the only ones Tron (TRX) has partnerships with. The company has vSport, Game.com, OBike, PornHub, Gifto, and UPlive in its partnership bucket too. And yes, there also is a secret Tron project (possibly partnership) that is going to be announced at the mont of this month. Tron partnerships with all these mega means that the coin is not just a hype, it has a bright future ahead.
What makes Tron distinct and promising?
Apart from Tron’s partnership with top companies in the world, there are few things that make Tron different and promising.
- Tron empowers content providers to own their contents
The fact that Tron gives content providers the ability to own their contents makes the platform a good choice. Considering this, crypto enthusiasts believe that Tron (TRX) is taking the lead on the advent of the third web.
- Ability to build smart contracts
For developers, Tron (TRX) provides a platform that allows the building of smart contracts using any programing language.
The interoperability level of Tron (TRX) is quite remarkable. For instance, let’s say you are using a car-sharing application that operates on Tron’s network. Every time you want to rent a car using the app, you are compensated with tokens by the car-sharing company. You also have the ability to use your coins to buy-back free rental bikes later on. With Tron, you can also use these coins in exchange for goods that are free, if the goods chain is built on Tron’s network.
There are lots of good things present around Tron (TRX); big partnerships with top companies, third-party Dapps, and its futuristic ambitions. Although the network has had lots of controversies, it still thrives to maintain its goals in the crypto world. No hype here, buddies. When the facts are this good there is no need for embellishment. Be patient, you will encounter big Tron bull soon.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes
While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.
During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.
Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.
1. True ownership of your coins
The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges…
Crypto Billionaire Predicts Massive Price Growth by 2021
Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.
Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.
He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.
However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…
TokenRoll (TKR) Platform Will Take Online Casinos to the Next Level
Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world. Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon. This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs. One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos. TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.
Problems with Centralized Casinos
The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model. And online casinos are no different. It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling. The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative. But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.
A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:
- Little to no transparency
- Consumer lack of confidence
- Privacy concerns
- 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals
These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market. Casinos need to…
