In a recent tweet, Justin Sun, the Founder and CEO of TRON Foundation announced that TRX has now been listed on the cross-chain wallet app, SwftCoin.

TRON recently answered a few of TNW’s questions pertaining to Project Atlas. Here’s one such question-answer pair:

TNW: A few months back, TRON made headlines when it acquired BitTorrent for $126 million. Why BitTorrent and not another peer-to-peer technology provider?
TRON: Quite simply, we share the same vision. You’re seeing all kinds of content increasingly being walled off – whether it’s Netflix, Disney, YouTube, or whoever. Both BitTorrent and TRON believe the internet shouldn’t be controlled by centralized, for-profit companies and should be in the hands of the people across a global, borderless economy.”

Here’s another one:

TNW: How did the acquisition come together, and what role does the acquisition play in TRON’s mission to take blockchain to the masses?
TRON: Prior to the acquisition, BitTorrent was looking for ways to incentivize its users. The opportunity to join forces with TRON arrived at the perfect time. Now, we’re combining an already successful peer-to-peer network with new blockchain technology to give content creators the freedom to distribute that content directly to users – eliminating middlemen who control what’s seen and how much they make from their content.”

Here’s yet another one:

TNW: As part of Project Atlas, there are plans to migrate BitTorrent’s 100 million users to TRON’s network. Factoring in the notorious scalability issues associated with blockchain, how is TRON going to ensure that its network can handle 100 million users?
TRON: There’s really no limitations on the number of users or people in a blockchain community. If you’re asking about transaction processing speed that’s crucial to efficiency in the marketplace, tests have shown our TPS is far superior to most networks. With a technology that advances every day and constant investment in R&D, we are convinced our network will have the capacity to handle our current and future audience.”

There’s still a lot of questions left! Here comes another pair:

TNW: How is TRON going to ensure its network stays decentralized, while also welcoming millions of new users?
TRON: Decentralization is at the core of what TRON and BitTorrent are about. We have teams around the world who understand this is priority one, and who are working to maintain the same great standards both companies have been known for. On the technical side, we use Designated Proof of Stake (DPoS) that allows users and superdelegates to monitor the community regardless of size so that it stays decentralized. We welcome more individuals and companies to join the network governance and together accelerate the decentralization of the internet. New programs like TRON Accelerator, a $1 million USD developer program, will also ensure that the network stays decentralized and open to innovation coming from the developer community.”

Moving on to the next pair:

TNW: What role will the native TRX token play in BitTorrent’s migration to the TRON network? What mechanisms have TRON prepared to ensure that users will benefit from using TRX along with BitTorrent?
TRON: The TRX token will be central to the integration of BitTorrent and TRON technology. We’ll be talking more about this in coming months, but as a teaser consider the idea that BitTorrent users will be incentivized to seed more content into the network, create an economy of goods and services within the network and, if they choose to, withdraw money out of the network.”

The cryptocurrency’s community has been quite positive about all of the recent changes made to the network and it wouldn’t come as a surprise if TRX makes it into the top 5.

According to a recent tweet, Ripple CEO, Brad Garlinghouse, would be participating in an AMA on 18th December. The AMA would be the last one the company would be participating in this year. Monica Long, the SVP Marketing at Ripple, would be joining Garlinghouse in the AMA.

Our final AMA of 2018 featuring @bgarlinghouse and @MonicaLongSF is next week, 12/18 at 10:30am PST. Mark your calendars and share your questions via reply! pic.twitter.com/YbmAwIuq7e

— Ripple (@Ripple) December 12, 2018

The questions have already started rolling in. As always, we have a mix of important and not even remotely important questions. While at one end of the spectrum, we have questions about the scope of XRP and xRapid, at the other end of the spectrum, we have questions about Brad’s breakfast.

Recently, the Ripple team interviewed Kevin Werbach, the Professor of Legal Studies and Business Ethics at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and the author of The Blockchain and the New Architecture of Trust.

Diving right into the questions and answers, here’s the first pair:

Team Ripple: Can you preview any key takeaways from your new book, The Blockchain and the New Architecture of Trust?
Werbach: Blockchain isn’t an alternative to trust; it’s a new form of trust that tries to remove dependence on specific entities. For cryptocurrencies and blockchain-based systems to reach their potential, they themselves must be trustworthy. And that means much more than the formal security of consensus on a distributed ledger. We need to examine more closely what kinds of problems blockchain can address, and the trust landscapes of those domains. And, counter-intuitively for some, law will largely be a force that helps the blockchain ecosystem. Law, regulation and governance are mechanisms of trust. We need to look at how they can be employed to promote trust in blockchain-based solutions, and how blockchain and legal trust interact.”

Moving on to the next one:

Team Ripple: Did you encounter use cases that are more ideal than others for digital assets blockchain technology?
Werbach: Certainly! I start one chapter of my book by talking about the Whoppercoin — an ICO that was essentially just a loyalty point system for Burger King customers in Russia. There was no reason whatsoever why a blockchain was needed. It was all probably a humorous marketing campaign, but the scary thing was that, during the boom last year, you really couldn’t tell. In general, you always need to ask, “Is this a real and substantial problem to be solved,” and “why won’t a traditional technology solve the problem just as well, if not better?” The best use cases are ones where either the cost of trust (typically in the form of layers or intermediaries) is a problem, or where there is a “trust gap” among coordinating entities. The first explains most cryptocurrency or digital asset uses, while the second represents the enterprise applications. Payments, where Ripple is active, have aspects of both.”

Another question-answer pair was:

Team Ripple: Where do you see the most traction in using digital assets and blockchain technology to solve real problems in business today?
Werbach: As I wrote on Medium over the summer, I see three largely separate uses emerging. The first is cryptocurrencies. There the low hanging fruit is clearly payments, where there are serious inefficiencies moving money between silos and jurisdiction, as well as financial inclusion opportunities where we’re starting to see adoption. Down the road, cryptocurrencies will be the foundation for decentralized applications. Those have tremendous potential, but aren’t yet ready for prime time. The second use is distributed ledgers for tracking assets, or what I call translucent collaboration. This is particularly important in financial services and in supply chain, where there are multi-trillion dollar problems because no on has a unified view across the entire system. Second-order features like provenance (such as Walmart’s system to track leafy greens for food safety and Eveledger’s work in the diamond industry) as well as trade finance, where massive capital could be unlocked, are quickly coming into play. And finally, there is regulated cryptoasset trading, through security token offering and crypto-derivatives. The prospect of a secure, programmable, native-digital token that represents assets or intangibles is a Wall Street dream, which that community is racing to turn into a reality.”

In a recent Ripple Insights article, the company discussed the introduction of Cross in Thailand and the Philippines by Coinone Transfer.

Also Read: Ripple Interviews Author Kevin Werbach

The article starts off with the company introducing Cross:

“This month Coinone Transfer, a payments business and a subsidiary of Coinone, introduced South Korea’s first blockchain-powered remittance mobile app and web service called Cross — offering faster, lower cost payments to Thailand and the Philippines.
Unlike other remittance options in South Korea, Cross does not rely on traditional banking rails. Rather, it provides a safe alternative for those with or without a bank account, and the increased payment transparency and reliability inherent to Ripple’s advanced blockchain technology.”

Talking about Coinone Transfer’s expansion plans, the article said:

“With plans to aggressively expand across the region over the coming months, Coinone Transfer quickly rolled out the service through new financial institutions using RippleNet — connections formed with Siam Commercial Bank (SCB) in Thailand and Cebuana Lhuillier in the Philippines.
Coinone Transfer’s partnership with SCB also will soon offer Cross customers a direct link to PromptPay, which enables any recipient with a bank account in Thailand to receive a payment directly and instantly.”

Talking about the South Korean market, the article said:

“With an estimated two million immigrant workers living in South Korea — more than 3.4% of the overall population — the need for improved remittance services like Cross has never been greater.”

Talking about it further:

“According to a 2017 government report, Thai immigrant workers number more than 153,000 and are the third-largest immigrant population in the country. The Filipino immigrant population is not far behind with approximately 58,000 people working in South Korea today.”

Adding to it:

“Not surprisingly, the rate of remittances into and out of the country is skyrocketing — with the World Bank estimating approximately $17 billion in remittance last year alone.”

Talking about the pain points of the customers in South Korea, the article said:

“In the past, remittance options in South Korea were limited. For those sending smaller sums of money overseas, the cost of sending a payment was often too high to justify. Tracing payment history was extremely complex — customers didn’t know the exact date or time for the delivery of the funds nor were they able to cancel a payment request once it was in progress.”

Moving on to the introduction of Cross in South Korea and how that changed the existing situation:

“In July 2017, the South Korean government began offering Global Remittance Licenses to non-bank businesses operating remittance services in the country. This combined with the introduction of the new Cross service finally provides these customers with a better way to send money abroad — options that are less costly, faster and more reliable than traditional options.
One of the primary benefits of RippleNet is that it enables banks and payment providers to join together and provide a better experience for all their end users.”

To explain just how global this problem is, the article said:

“Friction in global payments is felt universally — from people who want to send money to loved ones but face high costs and slow times, to growing businesses that need to send payments internationally in order scale.
This is particularly true in countries across the Association of South Eastern Asian Nations (ASEAN) region that lack a reliable and comprehensive network of correspondent banks, and therefore, face extreme inefficiencies and costs for cross-border payments.”

Moving on to how RippleNet is changing the market, the article said:

“In the past year, RippleNet has helped enable a multitude of new services aimed at addressing this problem, including a new “multi-hop” feature on RippleNet pioneered by SCB, access to Latam and Europe for InstaReM’s remittance customers across the region and The Japan Bank Consortium’s MoneyTap mobile app.
While the market opportunity for these industry innovators is huge, the value of services and technology they’re deploying is is even greater — it has the potential to change lives for millions of people working and living abroad in ASEAN.”

After getting Proposal 7 successfully approved by the community, Justin Sun, the Founder and CEO of TRON Foundation, has submitted Proposal 9.

Proposal 9 is aimed at reducing the fee of 1 energy to 0.00001 TRX. Sun announced his proposal in a recent tweet which is getting a positive reaction from the users.

I have submitted Proposal 9 to reduce #TRON energy cost from 20 sun to 10 sun, which will dramatically decrease the cost of smart contract and creat a developer friendly environment. Please vote for Proposal 9! #TRX $TRX https://t.co/SaIfXXjDbr

— Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) December 10, 2018

It is quite likely that the proposal would be voted for in agreement by the community soon since lowering the energy costs would benefit everyone carrying out transactions on the network.

TRON recently answered a few of TNW’s questions pertaining to Project Atlas. Starting with those question-answer pairs:

TNW: A few months back, TRON made headlines when it acquired BitTorrent for $126 million. Why BitTorrent and not another peer-to-peer technology provider?
TRON: Quite simply, we share the same vision. You’re seeing all kinds of content increasingly being walled off – whether it’s Netflix, Disney, YouTube, or whoever. Both BitTorrent and TRON believe the internet shouldn’t be controlled by centralized, for-profit companies and should be in the hands of the people across a global, borderless economy.”

Moving on to the next one:

TNW: How did the acquisition come together, and what role does the acquisition play in TRON’s mission to take blockchain to the masses?
TRON: Prior to the acquisition, BitTorrent was looking for ways to incentivize its users. The opportunity to join forces with TRON arrived at the perfect time. Now, we’re combining an already successful peer-to-peer network with new blockchain technology to give content creators the freedom to distribute that content directly to users – eliminating middlemen who control what’s seen and how much they make from their content.”

Here’s another one:

TNW: As part of Project Atlas, there are plans to migrate BitTorrent’s 100 million users to TRON’s network. Factoring in the notorious scalability issues associated with blockchain, how is TRON going to ensure that its network can handle 100 million users?
TRON: There’s really no limitations on the number of users or people in a blockchain community. If you’re asking about transaction processing speed that’s crucial to efficiency in the marketplace, tests have shown our TPS is far superior to most networks. With a technology that advances every day and constant investment in R&D, we are convinced our network will have the capacity to handle our current and future audience.”

Here’s yet another one:

TNW: How is TRON going to ensure its network stays decentralized, while also welcoming millions of new users?
TRON: Decentralization is at the core of what TRON and BitTorrent are about. We have teams around the world who understand this is priority one, and who are working to maintain the same great standards both companies have been known for. On the technical side, we use Designated Proof of Stake (DPoS) that allows users and superdelegates to monitor the community regardless of size so that it stays decentralized. We welcome more individuals and companies to join the network governance and together accelerate the decentralization of the internet. New programs like TRON Accelerator, a $1 million USD developer program, will also ensure that the network stays decentralized and open to innovation coming from the developer community.”

Moving on to the next pair:

TNW: What role will the native TRX token play in BitTorrent’s migration to the TRON network? What mechanisms have TRON prepared to ensure that users will benefit from using TRX along with BitTorrent?
TRON: The TRX token will be central to the integration of BitTorrent and TRON technology. We’ll be talking more about this in coming months, but as a teaser consider the idea that BitTorrent users will be incentivized to seed more content into the network, create an economy of goods and services within the network and, if they choose to, withdraw money out of the network.”

According to a recent tweet by, Justin Sun, the CEO and Founder of TRON Foundation, the community has approved Proposal 7.

Proposal 7 is approved by #TRON community. We will expect 500% increase of #DApp activities after the activation of Proposal 7. #TRX $TRX https://t.co/Ksejv8UVsj

— Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) December 9, 2018

The proposal was created by Sun on December 7 and took merely two days to be approved by the community.

I have created Proposal 7 to increase our energy limit and support #TRON developers. This proposal allows them to have lower fee and cost with better experience! Plz vote for Proposal 7! #TRX $TRX https://t.co/kAW4SBlBHd

— Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) December 7, 2018

The proposal aims for the network to increase the energy limit to 250 billion and also to support the developers working on the network. With this proposal, the developers would have lower fees and costs with a much better experience.

In a recent Medium article, Sesameseed talked about how there is quite a potential for the SEED/TRX pair to be removed from TRON DEX.

Also Read: TRON Answers Questions About Project Atlas

Talking about SEED’s time on TRON DEX and the new liquidity and listing requirements, the article said:

“In the past few weeks, the Sesameseed community has enjoyed the first listing of SEED token on an Decentralized Exchange, the Tronscan DEX.
We have been in contact with the TRON team regarding the SEED token listing on this Bancor-style exchange. Based on feedback gathered from the TRON community, TRON has announced new liquidity and listing requirements for pairings to be listed on Tronscan.”

Talking about the unavailability of funds for the listing, the article said:

“As has been discussed in our Telegram channels, no Sesameseed funds were used to provide the required liquidity pool in the current TRX/SEED listing pair. The current pairing on the DEX was funded by the Sesameseed team using personal funds, in the interest of allowing our community access to another option to trade SEED. The recently released listing and liquidity requirements for the DEX will require an amount of TRX and SEED not available through that current funding method.”

Talking about its unique token model and the likeliness of the trading pair, the article said:

“Sesameseed has a unique token model which has allowed us to provide the community a SEED token with great utility. Part of that model requires every SEED in circulation to be backed 1:1 with TRX. Locking up the amount of TRX and SEED tokens required to list a TRX/SEED pairing on the DEX is not consistent with Sesameseed’s model. One of the primary considerations would be any TRX locked in this pairing would not be eligible to vote causing the number of votes per SEED to decrease, reducing the voting rewards per SEED to our community. This is one of several reasons why Sesameseed has decided not to provide TRX and SEED to maintain the TRX/SEED pairing on the Tronscan DEX. Our expectation is that as a result of this decision, the TRON DEX will likely remove the current TRX/SEED pairing. We do not know when this may happen.”

Appreciating TRON, the article said:

“It is important to remember the TRON ecosystem is just getting started and evolution is not only to be expected, but it is healthy. We support TRON in their effort to make the TRON DEX the best project it can be.
All other available trading methods for SEED should not be affected by this event.”

In conclusion, the article said:

“Lastly, it is important to note that the Tronscan DEX utilizes the network layer of the Bancor listing. This same listing can be referenced by any other exchange that utilizes this network layer, as several exchanges do today, these would be unaffected by any decisions made by Tronscan.”

TRON recently answered a few of TNW’s questions pertaining to Project Atlas. One of the questions and the answer to that question was:

TNW: How is TRON going to ensure its network stays decentralized, while also welcoming millions of new users?
TRON: Decentralization is at the core of what TRON and BitTorrent are about. We have teams around the world who understand this is priority one, and who are working to maintain the same great standards both companies have been known for.

With less than a week left for Hard Fork Decentralized, TRON answered a few of TNW’s questions pertaining to Project Atlas.

Also Read: TRON (TRX) is Back in the Top 10

Earlier this year, TRON Foundation launched Project Atlas. The foundation has, since then, educated people a lot about the project. So let’s dig into those questions and answers! The first question asked was:

TNW: A few months back, TRON made headlines when it acquired BitTorrent for $126 million. Why BitTorrent and not another peer-to-peer technology provider?
TRON: Quite simply, we share the same vision. You’re seeing all kinds of content increasingly being walled off – whether it’s Netflix, Disney, YouTube, or whoever. Both BitTorrent and TRON believe the internet shouldn’t be controlled by centralized, for-profit companies and should be in the hands of the people across a global, borderless economy.”

Moving on to the next question:

Now, we’re combining an already successful peer-to-peer network with new blockchain technology to give content creators the freedom to distribute that content directly to users – eliminating middlemen who control what’s seen and how much they make from their content.”

The next question was:

The community is really excited to see the foundation’s event at Hard Fork Decentralized. Peer-to-peer content distribution’s future would be the agenda of the foundation’s discussion at the event.

TRON Foundation recently held an event called “TRON to The Future, Blockchain Technology and Ecosystem” about which the team wrote an official Medium article.

The article starts off with the foundation briefing the readers about the event:

“On November 29th, the “TRON to The Future, Blockchain Technology and Ecosystem” event, organized by the TRON community and co-organized by DOGI, a global blockchain game crowd-selling incubator platform, was held at Peking University, one of the most prestigious schools in China. The event attracted more than 200 students and was warmly received.”

Naming just a few of the many important personalities present in the event, the article said:

“The TRON community invited opinion leaders in the blockchain industry to share their insights of the development of blockchain and their visions for the future. The following guests attended the event and gave their keynote speech: Cong Li, TRON’s developer community VP; Yongquan Xiao, founder of DOGI, a global blockchain game crowd-selling platform; Binsheng Wang, special-term tutor for finance at the Graduate School of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences; Quan Li, partner of Evolution Capital; Yufei Ding from Huobi Research Institute; Xiao Wu, the producer of Cell Evolution; and the blockchain research team of Peking University — Junyan Chen, a 2007-class PhD student, as well as Kunpeng Ren, a Master student and lead of blockchain research group at Peking University.”

Talking about Cong Li’s introduction to the development history of TRON, the article said:

“Cong Li, TRON’s developer community VP, introduced the development history and the unique advantages of the TRON ecosystem. He pointed out that TRON mainly solves the problems of speed (throughput), scalability and costs of blockchain. In addition, Cong Li also mentioned Project Altas, TRON’s new project — a project that combines blockchain with BitTorrent’s P2P network to create a decentralized content distribution platform. Cong Li said that the introduction of BT’s regular user group into blockchain will greatly benefit the development of the blockchain industry.”

Moving on to Binsheng Wang’s contribution to the event, the article said:

“Binsheng Wang, a special-term tutor for finance at the Graduate School of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, elaborated on the investment logic of the blockchain market from the perspective of social change. He pointed out that the premise of an outbreak for blockchain “campaigns” is that as we have entered an “era where information transmission requires almost 0 cost”, “the popularity of blockchain has transformed the traditional information Internet into a value Internet.””

Moving on to Yongquan Xiao’s speech, the article said:

“Yongquan Xiao talked about the blockchain technology’s empowerment, in light of DOGI’s entrepreneurial direction for blockchain games, “blockchain has established a set of stable and transparent rules. The rules themselves set up concrete constraints on the number of items in the game, the production mechanism, the growth mechanism of players and the gameplay mechanism. These rules are becoming the rules that players can truly trust and rely on.” As a blockchain game crowd-selling platform, DOGI is constantly practicing and exploring new ways for blockchain games; the platform continues to evolve through the tempering of domestic and foreign game projects.”

Talking about the second half of the event, the article said:

“The second half of the event followed a line of “practical application.” Well-known blockchain game developers Xiao Wu used his first work “Cell Evolution” and the first DApp for TRON “Last Trip” as examples to show how to make fun and blockchain-spirited games. Junyan Chen, Ph. D. student at Peking University, talked about side chain technology and pan-blockchain ecosystem. Kunpeng Ren, Master student and blockchain research group organizer at Peking University, shared some insights of public chain DApp development.”
