Having secured its place back in the top ten cryptocurrencies by market cap, Tron (TRX) has doubled in value recently, giving the hodlers of this rising crypto-star a welcome boost to their portfolios. Awaiting the release of the TRX main net and subsequent migration of the ERC 20 token from various exchanges, the multitudes of investors cheering the recent price increase are now awaiting the date that this exciting news becomes fully realized.
And while they wait, hodlers must also endure the slight fall-back in value all coins experience after the hype surrounding their favorite altcoin fades. With an insatiable need for instant gratification, a number of weak-hands who rode the currency’s recent wave have abandoned ship before it sets sail. And while this laughable setback may seem disheartening to recent buyers, keen investors regard the current drop in value as a welcome opportunity to add to their stacks in anticipation of the inevitable moonshot.
For many, May 31st, the date set for the main net release may still seem an eternity away. But the countdown has started and before we know it, the 10,000 transactions per second (or more) promised by this exploding entertainment platform will turn the entire crypto-industry on its head, upending the likes of Ethereum (ETH) and supercharging the wallets of believers around the world once again.
Until then, however, we must search untiringly for news-worthy tidbits to keep us entertained.
A recent airdrop to the Ethereum (ETH) community stole the crypto-community’s attention for a short while. The large number of transactions (releasing 30 Million TRX to Ethereum (ETH) investors) was seen as a thoughtful nod to the original smart-contract blockchain platform, without which the TRX dream could not be fulfilled. However, in a twist not foreseen by Vitalik Buterin and his ‘sharding’ followers, delays reported by consumers waiting to receive their tokens only served to highlight the need for a newer, more robust blockchain.
Tron (TRX) will be happy to fulfill that need soon.
Among the reasons to remain excited is the foundation’s commitment to decentralization. Keeping the Tron (TRX) platform decentralized has always been the goal of the founder, Justin Sun. Having released his graduate thesis on decentralization, we can now see that the Tron (TRX) main net is but a step in the direction of decentralizing not just the currency, but the internet as a whole. Having graduated from Hupan University (the prestigious university founded by Jack Ma) Justin Sun will now focus his attention solely on this dream.
Accordingly, exchanges trading the ERC 20 token are showing their support for the coming migration, assuring the market that their coins will be transferred to the main net without the need for consumers to act. Gate.io, among the world’s leading exchange platforms, is showing their support. Binance and Bitfinex are in as well. And as the exchanges of the crypto-universe continue showering support on this blockchain concept, consumers are beginning to feel much more relaxed about leaving their TRX on their favorite exchange, to be transferred automatically in the coming weeks.
The day nears when the world’s TRX is no longer confined to the Ethereum blockchain. And starting on that day, the real value of this incredible crypto-product will begin to be truly realized. By user base alone, Tron’s main net will prove the largest blockchain currency available. By transaction speed, it will prove the fastest. And with the hardest working founder announcing the platform’s accomplishments from the top of his lungs (thanks Twitter), the world will soon be forced to reckon with a brand new blockchain.
