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.

CoinFlip Scores Big with BRD Wallet Partnership
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.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity
While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle. Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance. One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess. That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS. These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there. While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.
What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?
In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount. There are several examples of this in our day to day lives. Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers. Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has. The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.
The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs. Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…
Hodium Presents a Compelling Opportunity for Outsized Investment Returns
I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018. It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants. Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse. The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.
As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha. In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets. I can remember trading during my high school days. It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom. Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard. Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.
Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques. The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft. That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…
