Monerujo is the first open source mobile application capable of managing and using Monero [XMR] wallets. Being a light wallet, it makes use of remote nodes that synchronize with a blockchain and at the same time keep the user’s private information safely on the device.

Some of the major improvements made by the development team are:

  • Ledger Nano S support over OTG
  • NFC Support for Receive & Send (like QR Code)
  • Minor bug fixes
  • New translations: Greek, Hungarian, Romanian, Russian, Swedish
  • Select App Language
  • Restoreheight can now be entered during Restore as YYYYMMDD as not all numeric keyboards allow hyphens

A Twitterati named Franck Royer, responded to this tweet saying:

“Awesome Job! Well done”

A Redditor named Vespco responded to this update saying:

“The idea that I can plug my Nano S into my phone, scan a payment QR code, and make a transaction from Monerujo that is shared to the monero network by sending to a remote node on the tor network, to protect my privacy, sounds reallycool.”

The Redditor further added saying:

“That makes it super safe, easy, and private. Something darknet users would absolutely love and help Monero a ton. If orbot as a vpn is less then ideal, then the copy and pasting of a signed transaction is a great alternative.”

Over the past few weeks, Monero has been continuously facing a series of mining malware attacks. The attacks range from infecting online gaming platforms to taking over nearly 200,000 routers in Brazil for XMR mining.

Tron, the eleventh largest cryptocurrency on CoinMarketCap, recently collaborated with Bitpie, a partnership that would help startups to bridge the gap in vulnerable financial systems. Tron’s token might be lagging in terms of performance in the market but, Tron DApps continued to surge.

The DApp weekly report released by the Tron Foundation reported an increase of 22 DApps in the Tron ecosystem, taking the total to 392. It noted that gambling DApps mainly contributed to this growth as 17 DApps were gambling-based. Decentralized exchanges followed suit, as 3 new DApps made their way into the Tron DApp ecosystem. The main highlight for the entire Tron community was the partnership with Opera, a mainstream browser.

Tron introduced a DApp ‘Lucky Moon,’ an entertainment-based DApp that pushes users to estimate the current time to run away from the imploding rocket with a specific reward rate. As the rocket takes-off, the reward rate keeps increasing and the player will have to escape at the right time. An extension of this game is ‘Tyrant Annihilation,’ where users need to collect seven types of equipment to kill a tyrant. The DApp might have taken inspiration from The Avengers.

The report made note of the fact that the Tron public chain received support from Aocoin wallet, a decentralized secure digital currency wallet. My Token, a software company that specializes in market information has been integrated into Tronscan and TRX market, leading the way to user traffic in DApps ecosystem.

At press time, Tron was valued at $0.0283 with a market cap of $1.89 billion. The 24-hour trading volume of the coin was noted to be $690.34 as it reported 6.36% growth over the past day. The coin grew by 8.80% over the past seven days, but fell by 0.44% in an hour.
