Award-winning 0xWarriors is coming to TRON!

Tron’s investment of $100 million in its Tron Arcade could be deemed as a good investment, since a lot of gaming, entertainment firms and developers are attracted to the Tron blockchain through it.

The current addition is OxGames, an investment firm based in Cyprus that helps in the development of games. Tron blockchain is one of the fastest blockchains with high scalability which is the reason for their choice.

One of its games OxWarriors will be launched in Tron’s blockchain even though that its Beta version is already available on the blockchain. The game enables gamers to trade items like bludgeons and swords which are used in the game by fighters to win and participate in events within the platform.

In a tweet, Tron Arcade wrote:

“The 0xGames team has now set its sights on using TRON’s technology to improve their decentralized gaming experiences.”

Commenting on this development, CEO of OxGames, Sergey Kopov said that:

“Apps based on blockchain that could boast really high popularity haven’t been released yet. What we’ve seen over the recent months is that trading and mining enjoyed less demand due to the cryptocurrencies’ downward trends, however, decentralized games have certainly been on the rise. They are likely to become the driver behind mass blockchain adoption in the future.”

This addition follows the migration of the largest gaming platform in Ethereum, EtherGoo to the Tron blockchain. Presently, Tron blockchain is the most active blockchain ahead of EOS and Ethereum.

Guess what? Reviews on cryptocurrency exchange are useful again!

Guess what? Reviews on cryptocurrency exchange are useful again!

Reviews on cryptocurrency exchanges have gone from being non-existent, to being filled with CPM-triggering banners, to now – actually being useful. To being something that every interested cryptocurrency investor should read before investing somewhere. This article will describe the development.

Back when the first cryptocurrency exchanges opened up shop, in 2011, there were no competition on the market. As the cryptocurrency exchanges essentially provided a then unique service (buying/selling crypto), there was no need for them to have competitive consumer friendly trading fees. The people using the services should just be happy about the services existing at all! As there were no real competition on the market, there weren’t that many reviews either. The main purpose reviews is to compare the item of review with another item, to see which item is the right for you. If there aren’t any other items for you to choose from, then why should anyone else bother preparing a review?

Eventually, the cryptocurrency market expanded a bit and so did the cryptocurrency exchanges. Between 2011-2014, numerous new exchanges opened up shop. Mt. Gox was the biggest one until February 2014. Actually, as much as 65% of the Bitcoin trading around the world took place at this single cryptocurrency exchange. Now, as there were more cryptocurrency exchanges, there was a greater need for comparisons. Mt. Gox charged 0.60% as flat fees for trading (there was definitely some room for improvement there). New exchanges entered the market with lower trading fees and suddenly a need for cryptocurrency exchange reviews had arisen. Problem at this time however, was that many of the reviewing sites focused more on driving traffic to their banners in order to make advertising money, than what they focused on providing valuable content to its visitors/readers. There are a few review sites that still have banner traffic as their main ambition. Take a look at this site for instance:

Banners everywhere…

But every market must evolve, and so also the market of providing unbiased independent information to prospective cryptocurrency investors searching for the right cryptocurrency exchange.

So, today, the review sites are generally much more sophisticated. They are actually more about what they should be – providing guidance and help to the people in need of the review: cryptocurrency traders. Also, as the cryptocurrency exchange market has become much more competitive, there is a race to the bottom between cryptocurrency exchanges. Each exchange offering lower trading fees than the other, all in order to entice customers.

The best review sites address the things most important to readers, such as trading fees, deposit methods, available cryptocurrencies, security etc. The current industry leader when it comes to cryptocurrency exchanges and reviews of them is the company Cryptowisser.

On cryptowisser.com, they operate the world’s largest list of cryptocurrency exchanges, listing more than 400 exchanges with individual well-written reviews for each and every one of them.

A few of their reviews that you can access through the hyperlinks below are the:

Bittrex review; the

Changelly review; the

Binance review; and the

Bitsane review.

Needless to say, the review culture has come a long way since 2011 and now really serves a purpose – to help, guide and warn cryptocurrency traders in their choice of cryptocurrency exchange.

Binance Cryptocurrency Exchange Considers Launch of Its Stablecoin

Binance Cryptocurrency Exchange Considers Launch of Its Stablecoin

The CEO of Binance Changpeng Zhao in a response to a Twitter user who suggested the exchange should launch a stablecoin suggests he is considering launching one. The Twitter user said a stablecoin from Binance would become a major token on the Binance blockchain and there is no reason why the exchange shouldn’t launch one.

Binance launched its cryptocurrency Binance Coin (BNB) in 2017 and the coin has been largely successful. BNB was referred to as the new Bitcoin at some point because it was determining market direction i.e the market fell or rose as its price changed.

Binance is also the largest crypto exchange by adjusted transaction volume and has maintained that position for a long time. Changpeng Zhao’s influence in the cryptocurrency industry is so great that other exchanges could delist a token that his exchange delisted first.

This is why a stablecoin launched by the exchange can have a significant impact and probably grow faster than other stablecoins have. The recent event concerning Tether, however, may have reduced the popularity of stablecoins in the industry.

Stablecoins are cryptocurrencies just like Bitcoin and XRP, only they are backed by some more stable currency such as the U.S Dollar. Tether was said to be backed by the USD thus giving it a stable value so that users can pay for goods and services without having to worry about value fluctuation. However it was discovered during the court case following the suit that only 74% of USDT is backed by the USD.

This has sent chills down the spines of cryptocurrency users when it comes to stablecoins and it might take a while for that to go away. Launching a new stablecoin at this time therefore may not be a good idea but who is to say what possibilities lie ahead of Binance’s possible new stablecoin?

The whole cryptocurrency market is just recovering from the problems caused by Tether USDT. Bitcoin is over $5,400 and Ethereum is over $160 while XRP is in the reds with Binance Coin and of course Tether USDT among the top ten cryptocurrencies. But if Binance will launch a stablecoin that brings more good to the ecosystem that bad, why not?
