As the focus and attention with respect to the Tron (TRX) project are all on the Independence Day, many TRX believers know that the next step will be the Super Representative Elections on the 26th of June. The activity will be carried out by TRX holders who will stake their coins on the TRON Wallet that was released only a few days ago. Staking involves having your coins or tokens locked up during a voting period. The same was seen when the EOS network was having its own elections.

Each TRX holder has the right to participate in the management of decentralized projects on the Tron Network. There will be 100 Super Representative (S.R) candidates that will be reduced through voting, to the 27 that is needed for the Tron Community. The S.Rs play a key role in governing the TRON community by ensuring that basic functions such as block generation and bookkeeping are carried out on the network.

They will be rewarded for every new block generated at the rate of 32 TRX. S.Rs, therefore, stand to gain once elected. But this means that they should provide incentives for their voters such as developing worthy DApps. This is why the votes are important. They will promote decentralization on the Tron Network. The current nodes on the TRON network number 148 and span all the continents of the world.

The full list of Super Representative candidates can be found on the Tron Website. Users are advised to scrutinize each including their elections manifestos. The TRON Foundation has since revised the requirements to make it as a Super Representative on the network. This is due to the fact that they want only the best candidates for the Tron Network.

So what are the new criteria for a Super Representative on the TRON network?

The initial requirements were 8, but Justin Sun and the Tron Foundation realized that the criteria needed to be expanded as follows:

  1. Official Site – each S.R candidate must have a working website that matches the information provided to TRON
  2. Team info – All information must be correct
  3. Social Media Influence – provide links to social media and have over 500 fans
  4. Annual Community support plan – Candidates should make their own plans to support the community
  5. List of team members and pictures
  6. Team introductions
  7. Livestream – Screenshots or website links of live stream promotion should be submitted to comment area of SR Forum
  8. Meet Up – Photos or relevant news reports links to MEET UPs should be submitted to the comment area of SR Forum
  9. Community promotion efforts – Screenshots of the discussion about the super representative election in its own community should be provided
  10. Testable Nodes – Candidates need to build their own test network node and open the RPC port
  11. Provide plans for hardware expansion
  12. Server location information
  13. Server configuration information
  14. Server type information
  15. Budget expenses

More information about the Super Representative requirements can be found on the Tron medium page. The next few days will surely be an exciting time for the Tron Network.

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…

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.

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…
