Why burn coins?

Coin burn refers to removing tokens from the total supply. Burning coins as vague as it sounds actually increases the value of cryptocurrencies. Tron has a finite total number and when coins from that pool are burnt the demand remains the same; the decrease in supply will prompt the price to rise. This process also encourages the investors to hodl the coins and at the same time, it helps in preparing the coin for a better technology. This purpose of Tron Foundation is believed to mark a new stage for the network on its blockchain.

Tron Foundation, post their token migration will send the TRX token to an address from which they will become unrecoverable. According to Tron Foundation:

“Coin burn encourages a fair distribution of cryptocurrency, helps to control inflation and reward token holders.”

Currently, Sesameseed [Tron SR candidate] is the first community to issue the token and they also burned TRX token first.

Tron Foundation on their Medium page said:

“The amount of TRX at the beginning of mainnet launch will be reduced to 99,000,000,000TRX, and the remaining 33,251,807,524 TRX held by TRON foundation will stay locked until January 1th, 2020.

At the time of writing, the TRX token migration is ongoing and is scheduled to complete by the end of the day and 26th June is the super representative election.

BitcoinGent, a crypto enthusiast, and a Twitter user commented:

“Wait … what? And what does the diamond skull mean? And the rocket ship… and… is this some kind of Dan Brown-style puzzle? #TRON #TRX”

ZZadiki, a Twitter user commented:

“I think they should burn 20% lock up 50% ..10% for 50 years and 30% 10% and 10% 5 years . While having 30% in circulation. The burn is just tactical marketing. To have same supply as ripple .. with 100Bln .. develop products can easily get $1.”

Tether’s [USDT] market capitalization hits all-time high, Facebook in talks with Winklevoss twins, trading firms over new cryptocurrency and more

Daily Crypto News – May 25

1) Bitcoin Wallet receives part of 5,000 BTC: A recent Whale Alert highlighted a transaction on May 24, where a large sum of Bitcoin [BTC] exchanged hands between two anonymous wallets. According to the alert the transaction took place at 22:13:23 + 1 minutes and 5,000.00001092 BTC was transferred from an unknown wallet, with address 19SiCYaYKZh9A8HUjuh14eg5wtYzKxiFbB, to another unknown wallet with address 14GcjGjxwadzcpmq9EG3KUgTKATjurbnWt.


2) Bitwise Report 2.0: Bitcoin [BTC] futures continues growth: On a month-on-month basis, Bitcoin Futures saw a massive bump in April trading at an average of 10,000 contracts daily, peaking on April 4, with over 22,000 contracts traded. To put that number in perspective, in March 2019, the average contracts traded was less than 4,000. Despite the high standards set in April, the average daily contracts traded in May, with 25 days gone has exceeded 14,000 and still looks to grow, given the price performance of Bitcoin.


3) Craig Wright on private keys: Craig S Wright has, for years, claimed he is the true creator of Bitcoin [BTC] without providing a shred of evidence to support the same. With the crypto-community levelling, Wright could prove his worth by sending BTC from Satoshi Nakamoto’s touted wallet containing around 980,000 BTCs, the BSV man in a twisted cause and effect situation, stated he will “sign” into his wallet only when he proves he is the creator.


4) Tether’s [USDT] market cap hits ATH: Tether and Bitfinex are being closely scrutinized now more than ever due to the NYAG’s lawsuit; however, the scrutiny doesn’t seem to have affected Tether as the market cap of USDT has increased by over $100 million in approximately 70 days.


5) Tether volume shift: Another controversial topic in the cryptocurrency industry was the issue of fake transaction volumes on many of the popular cryptocurrency exchanges. The magnitude of the topic was so large that even Changpeng Zhao, the Chief Executive Officer [CEO] of Binance had raised red flags. This topic and Tether as a whole received another twist when Larry Cermack, the Director of Research at The Block, pointed out a few parameters when it came to the said volume.


6) Bitfinex’s LEO tokens listed on Delta Exchange: Bitfinex’s Leo tokens faced quite a lot of criticism when they were announced, due to the missing $850 million funds from Bitfinex. The private investment round by Bitfinex also faced a lot of heat from the media. However, in a recent development, Leo tokens are being listed on various exchanges for trading.


7) Robinhood en-route a projected valuation of $7 billion: Robinhood, the California-based cryptocurrency exchange made headlines recently when a source close to the organization revealed that it was on the verge of closing their latest round of funding at a valuation of a whopping $7 billion – $8 billion. Sources even claimed that the current round of funding could act as a precursor to an even bigger round of funding, which would pit Robinhood with the bigwigs like Coinbase and Binance.
