Tron’s [TRX] Justin Sun says competing with Vitalik Buterin was good for cryptosphere

Mass adoption has been the cryptocurrency market’s key focus area for quite some time, with several proponents of the space reiterating the same as well. The most vocal luminaries of the cryptosphere have been Justin Sun, the CEO of the Tron Foundation, and Vitalik Buterin, the Co-founder of Ethereum. In a video uploaded by CNBC’s Cryptotrader, Ran NeuNer spoke about the Token 2049 conference that included seminars by Justin Sun, as well as Vitalik Buterin. Justin Sun spoke not only about the organisation’s plans to bring more users to its fold, but also about the Foundation’s future. The Tron CEO talked about his ongoing tussle with Vitalik Buterin, candidly admitting that the arguments between the two have produced good developments for the space. In his words, “The competition between the both of us is for the good of the space. We have also noticed that only good progress comes out of our talks.” Sun also revealed that the Tron Foundation had roped in 5000 developers this year, with many more in the pipeline. He was asked whether his company’s multiple updates was a marketing ploy, to which Justin Sun replied that it was not the case. He said, “The Tron blockchain has a better department, is faster and has a lot more users compared to the OMNI blockchain. You also have to understand that the transactions on the Tron blockchain are free.” Admitting that mass adoption was a challenge, Sun said that the arrival of BitTorrent was a major boost with its user base of more than a 100 million active users. According to Sun, the 100 million users in the BitTorrent ecosystem have been integrated into the Tron ecosystem. The Tron Foundation official added, “It is not just the number of user but it is also about the core developments that is happening in Tron. We have real TPS and real transactions with 3-5 DApps coming into the Tron blockchain everyday.” Tron’s DApp development was also elaborated about in the Tron weekly report recently, which said that the market favoured gambling apps, and the ROI Apps, a high risk application.

Tron [TRX]’s DApp dominance on display as Tron-based games steps on the podium

The race for superiority in the world of DApps has had three main competitors: Tron [TRX], Ethereum [ETH] and EOS. As per reports, Tron leads the race with several updates and developments coming in from the Justin Sun-led organization. These developments paid dividends after two new DApp games on the Tron blockchain, BlockchainCutie, and Chibi Fighters, got listed in the top 5 games by Crypto Gamers-egamers.io. The Foundation tweeted: “We’re thrilled to find that @BlockchainCutie and @ChibiFighters have made it to the top 5 list by @egamers_io! Both of these games are on the TRON blockchain. Check them out and let us know if you like playing them. Go $TRX #TRX!” Tron’s focus on DApps was made evident many times, with the Tron DApp Weekly Report expanding on the details. It said: “According to tron.app , as of this week, #TRON has over 187 #Dapps with more than 464 smart contracts. There are 10 decentralized exchanges (DEX) on TRON, 6 collection games, 40 tool Dapps and 4 candybox projects. #TRX $TRX” Other than leading in the DApp world, Tron also gained traction when the partnership and benefits of the Tron—Tether partnership were announced. The partnership, according to Sun, will leave Omni in the dust. Sun tweeted: “RC20 token is based on the smart contracts, so you can do lots of the deployment work on top of the USDT, which Omni blockchain cannot offer.” At the same, Jean-Louis der Velde, Tether’s CEO also commented: “We are pleased to announce this collaboration with the Tron Foundation. This integration underlines our commitment to furthering innovation within the cryptocurrency space as we continue to anticipate the needs and demands of the digital asset community.” The post Tron [TRX]’s DApp dominance on display as Tron-based games steps on the podium appeared first on AMBCrypto.

Tron’s [TRX] market volume tops combined volume of Ethereum [ETH] and EOS across two days

Tron [TRX] and Justin Sun, CEO and Founder of the Tron Foundation, have both made it a point to integrate the concept of mainstream adoption with every update and development from the Tron roster. This move seems to have paid dividends for the tenth-ranked cryptocurrency, according to a recent post by Justin Sun. A report from DApp Review showed that between March 3 and March 5, Tron’s transaction volume was more than the combined value of its two biggest rivals, EOS and Ethereum [ETH]. The value of Tron was a whopping $43.616 million, while EOS and Ethereum clocked $11.617 million and $4.408 million respectively. However, several critics of the cryptocurrency have disputed this claim. @rektkid, a Twitter user, was one of them. He tweeted, “EOS literally has 10x the trading volume of TRX though.” To this, another user retorted, “Because people are actually suing the Tron Foundation tokens instead of trading them.” The Foundation’s weekly DApp report further proved that Tron aimed to completely dominate the DApp market. The report stated: “According to tron.app , as of this week, #TRON has over 187 #Dapps with more than 464 smart contracts. There are 10 decentralized exchanges (DEX) on TRON, 6 collection games, 40 tool Dapps and 4 candybox projects. #TRX $TRX” Over the last week, the Foundation captured headlines with its partnership with Tether [USDT]. The tie-up between the TRC20 token and USDT claims to provide better interoperability and functionality on the Tron network. Justin Sun later stated that the partnership is likely to leave Omni in the dust. Sun further elucidated on the partnership, stating, “First of all, USDT Tron will offer the liquidity in Tron decentralized exchange. Second, USDT Tron will offer TRX holder, a new way of value storage. Third, USDT Tron will provide the DApp users, a new way to play DApps, which also minimize the risk of the cryptocurrency. Fourth, USDT Tron will give Tron blockchain new legitimacy and the increase the confidence of the institutional investor in that show.” The post Tron’s [TRX] market volume tops combined volume of Ethereum [ETH] and EOS across two days appeared first on AMBCrypto.

Tron’s Justin Sun: Tron-Tether partnership is going to leave Omni in the dust

Tron Foundation has always played a crucial role in maintaining the market sentiment in favor of their TRX token. Recently, Tron announced a partnership with Tether, the stable coin, that will launch USDT as a native token on the Tron blockchain in Q2 2019. Justin Sun, the Chief Executive Officer [CEO] and founder of Tron foundation, shared the news and said that having Tron’s own stablecoin will benefit their ecosystem and make it easier for institutions to access the Tron blockchain. In a recent interview released by the foundation, the CEO highlighted the reasons as to why the “Tron and Tether partnership is going to leave Omni in the dust”. Omni, a platform for creating and trading custom digital assets and cryptocurrencies, has been held as a standard by Justin Sun to influence the community. Sun explained that the pairing of Tron token with USDT [TRX/USDT] will minimize risk and volatility of the cryptocurrency market. Sun spoke about the value of USDT and added that the largest stablecoin in the industry has almost 2 billion assets on the USDT tether blockchain. The CEO also addressed the swift and instant transactions carried out on Tron blockchain, which was also free for users. However Omni, in comparison to Tron, takes hours to complete a transaction and charges about $1 to $10 as fees. The CEO also claimed that Tron’s blockchain was smarter than Omni. Tron stated: “TRC20 token is based on the smart contracts, so you can do lots of the deployment work on top of the USDT, which Omni blockchain cannot offer.” The founder of the Tron foundation then moved on to talk about the benefits of TRX/USDT pair and listed four advantages: “First of all, USDT Tron will offer the liquidity in Tron decentralized exchange. Second, USDT Tron will offer TRX holder, a new way of value storage. Third, USDT Tron will provide the DApp users, a new way to play DApps, which also minimize the risk of the cryptocurrency. Fourth, USDT Tron will give Tron blockchain new legitimacy and the increase the confidence of the institutional investor in that show.” The CEO concluded that these benefits would be helpful for both Tether and Tron communities, giving them more opportunity in the decentralized world of finance. Along with Sun, Jean-Louis der Velde, the CEO of Tether, also aimed to further innovation within the cryptocurrency space. The CEO was quoted saying: “We are pleased to announce this collaboration with the Tron Foundation. This integration underlines our commitment to furthering innovation within the cryptocurrency space as we continue to anticipate the needs and demands of the digital asset community.” The post Tron’s Justin Sun: Tron-Tether partnership is going to leave Omni in the dust appeared first on AMBCrypto.

Tether Will Issue TRC-20 USDT Tokens on Tron’s Blockchain

There are always peculiar developments in the cryptocurrency to take note of. Especially where stablecoins are concerned, there are plenty of things to take into consideration. Tether, the creators of the USDT stablecoin, are now bringing their popular token to the Tron network. This development further confirms the Tron blockchain is here to stay, as these tokens will be used for native dApps and protocols. Tether Sees Merit in TRC-20 Tokens It is always interesting to see how the demand for stablecoins is seemingly not slowing down. Despite numerous competitors launching their own USD-backed tokens and assets in the past year, it seems USDT is still the main solution in this ecosystem. As such, parent company Tether is always looking for ways to effectively improve its market position and tap into new markets at the same time. While most of the USDT tokens are issued on the OMNI protocol, there is also an Ethereum-based variant in the form of ERC-20 USDT tokens. That in itself has been a pretty interesting development, although it doesn’t seem to be making too much of an impact in the dApp scene just yet. With Tether now launching TRC-20 based USDT tokens for Tron’s dApps and protocols, it will be interesting to see if that venture is more successful in the long run. According to the company’s statement, this new token is designed to facilitate conversions from US Dollars to Tron-oriented currency. While this option could prove very useful, the collaboration between Tether and the Tron Foundation will also be considered to be controversial. Tether has been subjected to a lot of scrutiny in recent years, even though nothing has been proven ever since these “investigations” began. Although it remains a bit unclear when the new version of USDT will launch exactly, it should be somewhere in the next few months. This new currency will not replace the existing OMNI- and Ethereum-based supply in circulation, but merely serve as an addition specifically for the Tron ecosystem. It appears Tether sees a bright future ahead for Tron in this regard, as it currently boasts one of the largest dApp ecosystems in the industry. With this new development on the horizon, the future of cryptocurrency will look a bit different moving forward. More support for stablecoins linked to specific ecosystems makes some sort of sense. However, a lot of people expected currencies such as USDT to be blockchain-agnostic, instead of requiring their own version linked to specific blockchains. A cross-chain stablecoin would certainly be an improvement for the future. Until that becomes possible, this current approach will certainly check most of the right boxes. Regardless of how one feels about Tether, this development is a major deal for Tron. Its ecosystem continues to grow and expand at an accelerating pace in recent months. Following the launch of BitTorrent Token, the TRC-20 USDT tokens are another major addition. While the demand for such a token has yet to be determined at this stage, it is a potentially promising step in the right direction. Anything that can potentially make the crypto industry more robust is a positive turn of events. Disclaimer: This is not trading or investment advice.

Controversial Stablecoin Tether (USDT) to Launch on Tron Blockchain

Tether (USDT) has taken a step to further its prospects in the cryptocurrency industry by collaborating with Tron to launch the stablecoin on the Tron blockchain. This was announced on the Tether blog recently, saying the collaboration is meant to bring mass adoption to the stablecoin. Chief Executive Officer of Tether Jean-Louis der Velde said “We are pleased to announce this collaboration with the Tron Foundation. This integration underlines our commitment to furthering innovation within the cryptocurrency space as we continue to anticipate the needs and demands of the digital asset community.” Tether (USDT) is a USD pegged stablecoin that came into existence in 2014 on the Omni Layer Protocol. The value of each USDT is determined by a US Dollar in reserves of the company Tether Limited and redeemable through Tether platform. Stablecoins are generally cryptocurrencies that are more stable in value as the name implies. These were invented to allow users to pay for goods and services without having to worry about the volatility that characterizes conventional cryptocurrencies. Tether happens to be a controversial one because there has been skepticism about the reserves that back USDT. The stablecoin started with Bitcoin-based USD Tether issued via the Omni Layer Protocol, and later Ethereum-based Tether, compatible with the ERC20. The company is now expanding its reach by launching on the Tron blockchain which according to the company. The token “enables interoperability with TRON-based protocols and Decentralised Applications (DApps) whilst allowing users to transact and exchange fiat pegged currencies across the TRON Network.” Tron has been in several collaborations with many major players in the cryptocurrency industry. The new collaboration with Tether will definitely widen its user base as more users will patronize the project now that TRX can be used with the USDT stablecoin especially in the heat of this bear market. Indeed this collaboration couldn’t have come at a better time as the market is in the reds and at times like this, stablecoins are the only tokens that are in the greens as they are right now, including Tether USDT. this will be of great benefit to Tron and make TRX more useful for transactions.

Omni Bets on XRP and Ripple to Ensure Better Liquidity

CoinSpeaker Omni Bets on XRP and Ripple to Ensure Better Liquidity Ripple’s products as well as its native token XRP have already gained high popularity and are widely used by a number of different companies across various spheres. And it looks like it is just a beginning. Omni and XRP It is known that Omni, a US-based physical storage and online rental service provider that operates in Portland and San Francisco, is actively working with Ripple and XRP. According to the company’s co-founder and CEO, Thomas McLeod, the main reason for such collaboration is Omni’s desire to bring liquidity to its clients and to improve the sharing economy. McLeod stated: “By enabling XRP cash outs, we’re aiming to lower the barrier to entry for crypto-curious consumers and also reduce the risk because you still own the asset.” Thanks to Omni people can easily find some necessary things in their neighborhood or rent different items ranging from bicycles to air mattresses. The individual who is offering an item to be rented is still its full owner but there is a great opportunity for him to make a profit out of things that are not used at the moment. The users’ revenue will be split with the company at 50:50. The money they get can be moved to their Ripple (XRP) wallets. At the moment, Omni is considered to be a unique platform as thanks to it people can earn XRP without the involvement of a crypto exchange. Benefits of the Project According to Omni’s CEO, their goal is to connect the world with the help of simple things. McLeod explained: “So there’s a world in which everything that you have you should be able to connect with other people and other people should be able to use those things as well. So if you have a bike and you’re not using it, someone else can use it when you’re not using it. And now you also make money on top of that.” McLeod highlighted that their company greatly benefits from Ripple’s potential:  “It became very clear that this could be a great tool for both providing vast, rapid liquidity for sort of cashing out the capital that you make through the rental side as well as in the future connecting individuals quickly with those assets.” XRP Application Not only Omni believes in the capacities of Ripple, but also Ripple believes in the capacities of Omni. Earlier this year, Omni has become one of the first investment that Ripple has made in the framework of its Xpring initiative. Moreover, Omni is a good example of real-life use case for XRP. It’s also worth mentioning that XRP will be a base currency for a new Corda Settler app that will work on R3’s international blockchain and will make global crypto payments across enterprise blockchain networks easier.

New Wormhole Wallet Can Create Tokens and Crowdsales in Minutes

On Friday, Nov. 23, the developers behind the Wormhole project announced the launch of the Wormhole Cash wallet. The application allows users to store, send and receive BCH, WHC and any type of token created with the Wormhole software. Additionally, the new client allows users to burn BCH for WHC alongside the ability to crowdfund and create token assets. Also read: Content Creators Can Earn BCH Using the Honest Cash Platform Wormhole Developers Launch New Light Client for BCH, WHC and Tokens The Wormhole software developers recently released a beta version Wormhole Cash wallet for desktops and Android. The client allows users to safely store, send and receive bitcoin cash (BCH) and wormhole cash (WHC), as well as tokens created using the infrastructure. Wormhole.cash is a project that uses the BCH chain and a fork of the Omni Layer protocol to allow smart contract and representative token creation. The Wormhole Cash wallet beta version for desktops The beta version of the Wormhole Cash wallet has been designed to allow research and testing for those who are interested in the technology. Over time the developers will polish the open source software and periodically upgrade the client. “The wormhole wallet is an open source project, we’re trying our best to contribute for the whole BCH ecosystem,” explained the Wormhole development team. The Wormhole Cash wallet is also available for Android. This Saturday, news.Bitcoin.com took a look at both the Android and desktop versions of the Wormhole Cash wallet interface to give our readers an inside glimpse of this beta platform. When signing up for the desktop wallet, the user is asked to tether a valid email and password to their newly created Wormhole account. This creates a whole new wallet and the wallet identifier is sent to the registrants’ email address. With the Android version, users can import an existing wallet or create a new one after launching the application for the first time. After creating a new set of keys, the Wormhole Cash client provides a 12-word mnemonic phrase to write down and makes the user enter the string of words to verify that they were recorded correctly. Wormhole Cash wallet users can also burn BCH for WHC at an exchange rate of 1 BCH – 100 WHC. Tokens, Crowdsales and Proof-of-Burn The Android and desktop versions of the wallet give the user a fresh BCH address to store, send and receive BCH and WHC. The wallet can also hold and create WHC and store and launch an assortment of Wormhole-based tokens. Essentially, Wormhole Cash wallet users can burn BCH for WHC at an exchange rate of 1:100 using the Wormhole proof-of-burn mechanism. WHC is used to crowdfund and purchase utility tokens, and wallet users can create their own with the client. Tokens can represent anything the creator desires and can be used for novel features like loyalty points. Users can set crowdsale specifications. For instance, after a user creates a token they can use the wallet to conduct an initial coin offering (ICO). Once a Wormhole node validates the crowdsale, the sale becomes active. Users interested in purchasing from the crowdsale use WHC. The ICO creators can manually shut down the sale or close it automatically when it sells out or reaches a certain time or block height. Wormhole smart property settings Moreover, users can create an airdrop for specified holders as long as they pay a fee in WHC. Wormhole Cash wallet users can also browse ongoing crowdsale events hosted on the blockchain and buy tokens with WHC. Users can create and revoke their own fixed number of tokens and also change the existing token issuer within the Wormhole system. Users can create an airdrop with the Wormhole Cash wallet. Wormhole developers have detailed that the protocol will become more robust and permissionless down the road. The ability to create a decentralized exchange supported on the protocol, a virtual machine, and smart contracts will come during the project’s “Exophere” phase. In addition to the latest desktop and Android Wormhole Cash wallets, the project’s programmers plan to release an iOS version of the client in the near future.

Ruling on XRP’s status as a security unlikely until late 2020

Disclaimer: These summaries are provided for educational purposes only by Stephen Palley. They are not legal advice. These are our opinions only, aren’t authorized by any past, present or future client or employer. Also we might change our minds. We contain multitudes. A consolidated class action in federal court in Oakland may one day lead a court to rule on (1) whether Ripple violated U.S. Securities laws by creating the XRP token and (2) whether XRP is a security. That day will not be in 2019, judging from a scheduling order entered by the Court on March 18. The Order sets forth a schedule for roughly the next twelve months. Here's what's going to happen: By March 20, Plaintiffs will publish a notice under federal law that verifies that they read the complaint, authorized its filing, didn't buy XRP in oder to become plaintiffs, and a number of other things that are set forth in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act (a law that was passed purportedly to prevent abuses class action practice. [related id=1]In 60 days, any member of the "purported class" can ask the court to be appointed as lead plaintiff and to approve selection of their counsel. This is a big deal from a financial standpoint for the lawyers, because the class lead will almost certainly earn more if there's a favorable result. As a result, you will see some litigation over this in about two months (we had a taste of that in the Tezos class action litigation, if you've followed that case). 45 days after the Court chooses the lead plaintiff, they will file a new complaint, which will replace all of the other complaints that the different plaintiffs filed. (As a reminder, this particular lawsuit consolidates or brings together a bunch of separately filed suits against Ripple). 45 days after the new complaint is filed, Defendants have to respond. Instead of answering, it is a virtual guarantee that they will file motions to dismiss. The parties will have 30 days to reply to the motion. All of the cases are ordered consolidated for pretrial purposes, which means that depositions, written discovery and motions will all be handled in this one case by this particular judge. If we build in time for the Court to rule and for some potential delay in the class rep designation process, it's possible that the Court will rule on Motions to Dismiss by the end of this year. It's also possible that this will role into next year. It's a dicey proposition to speculate on motions that haven't been filed yet, but if we assume that the motion to dismiss is denied -- which is usually the case if a Complaint is reasonably well pleaded -- we'd probably see an answer on file in early 2020. Discovery, class certification motions, and dispositive motions will likely take place in 2020 and 2021. It's possible that when the Court rules on the likely Motion to Dismiss we will see an indication as to whether or not the Court thinks a security is at issue, but Motions to Dismiss generally speaking don't address the merits of a case -- they assume that the facts stated are true for purposes of ruling, and will only look at whether or not a viable claim was pleaded. In short, I wouldn't expect to see a ruling on XRP's status as a security until late 2020 at the earliest.

IOTA / USD Technical Analysis: Game Changer

IOTA is bullish in the short-term, with the cryptocurrency trading well above its 200-period moving average The medium-term outlook remains bearish for the IOTA / USD pair, with the cryptocurrency still trading below its 200-day moving average Both time frames show potential inverted head and shoulders patterns building IOTA / USD Short-term price analysis In the short-term, IOTA has a bullish trading bias, with the cryptocurrency trading well above its 200-period moving average of the four-hour time frame. The four-hour time frame shows multiple inverted head and shoulders patterns, with price trading close to the neckline of the bullish patterns. If an upside breakout does occur, the larger bullish pattern’s overall bullish objective will likely be the November 15th trading high from last year.     IOTA / USD H4 Chart                                                                         (Source: TradingvView)     Pattern Watch Traders should note the target of the smaller bullish inverted head and shoulders pattern on the four-hour time frame will likely be the current 2019 trading high. MACD Indicator The MACD indicator on the four-hour time frame remains bullish, with the MACD signal line crossing higher. Relative Strength Index The RSI indicator on the four-hour time frame is bullish, although downside pressures are building. IOTA / USD Medium-term price analysis IOTA remains bearish in the medium-term, with the cryptocurrency still unable to move above its key 200-day moving average. The daily time frame clearly shows two potential inverted head and shoulders patterns that could start to take shape over the medium-term. The upside projection of the smaller inverted head and shoulders pattern would take the IOTA / USD pair towards levels not seen since October 2018. Technical indicators on the daily time frame remain bullish and continue to signal further gains ahead.     IOTA / USD Daily Chart                                                 (Source: TradingView)     Pattern Watch It is worth noting that the IOTA / USD pair’s 200-day moving average is located just below the neckline of the smaller inverted head and shoulders pattern. MACD Indicator The MACD indicator on the daily time frame is bullish and generating a buy signal. Relative Strength Index The RSI indicator is bullish on the daily time frame, although it is starting to correct lower. Conclusion The presence of multiple inverted head and shoulders patterns on the four-hour time frame highlights that the IOTA / USD pair has scope to trade much higher over the short-term.

Adoption: Customers can now pay with IOTA in Stores that Accept Apple Pay and Samsung Pay following Zeux Integration

As a means of encouraging wider use, Payments and banking services app Zeux has integrated IOTA (MIOTA) for crypto payments in stores for retailers in a collaboration with IOTA Foundation. This is to be fully available in a few weeks time according to an announcement by the Zeux team on Medium. According to founder and co-chairman of IOTA Foundation David Sønstebø, this partnership is a major step for the company that will make IOTA use more convenient. “This partnership with Zeux will provide a significant convenience benefit for IOTA ecosystem. We are very excited about this. Now IOTA digital currency can be used as payment with merchants that accept Apple Pay and Samsung Pay. By combining existing technology with another form of currency, this is a big step forward towards the adoption of crypto for the masses.’’ Speaking on the partnership, Founder and CEO of Zeux Frank Zhou said it is an avenue to increase the adoption of the digital asset and is just the first step to giving IOTA users more financial freedom. Meanwhile, IOTA has gained over 5% since the announcement of its integration with Zeux. this is an indication of the potential adoption this cryptocurrency stands to gain as a result of the integration which will bring it to thousands if not millions of users worldwide. Zeux is an app of the UK origin that provides payment services. The app is to be launched in April and made available in Europe within the year and America in 2020. Its integration of IOTA is a win-win as the CEO described IOTA’s Tangle as an ideal platform for them to build their customer data Dapp. Tangle is a specialized distributed ledger technology that is specifically meant for the internet of things, which the IOTA Foundation’s primary mission is to support. Apart from fee-less real-time payments, the Tangle is also an open-source protocol that facilitates secure data transfer and the collection and dissemination of sensor-based and other data. Zeux mission is to bring crypto as well as fiat micropayments to retail stores around the world through facilitating fee-less real-time payment as well as enabling integration of banking and investment services with it in one, making it a convenient way to do everything with funds without going out of the app. The post Adoption: Customers can now pay with IOTA in Stores that Accept Apple Pay and Samsung Pay following Zeux Integration appeared first on ZyCrypto.
