Tron (TRX) HODLers who are also users of the popular cryptocurrency exchange of Binance have been waiting patiently for the resumption of deposits and withdrawals of TRX on the platform ever since the token migration officially began on the 21st of June this year. Binance and the Tron Foundation have offered apologies for the delay and further stating that regular services on the exchange will resume sometime this week.
In the announcement via their medium page, the Tron Foundation stated that:
“The technical teams on both sides are working closely to push forward the migration. Deposit and withdrawal services are expected to be provided within the next week.
We would like to extend our sincerest apologies for keeping you waiting, but we are also kindly asking all TRON supporters and Binance users to remain patient. We are continuously working towards building a global ecosystem. Thank you for your support and understanding.”
So why is Binance key in breaking the current TRX price decline?
To begin, the value of TRX has plummeted since the Tron Independence Day. TRX is currently valued at $0.033 and down 9.33% in the last 24 hours (at the moment of writing this). TRX has also dropped from the number 9 spot on coinmarketcap.com to the number 12 slot. IOTA and NEO have zoomed passed TRX.
The TRX trading on Binance represents a total of approximately 20% of all the TRX traded globally. The number one spot goes to BitForex.com with the exchange handling 33% of all the TRX traded worldwide. BitForex has resumed TRX withdrawals and deposits, but the market response is still minimal. The extra liquidity of TRX brought about by Binance resuming deposits and withdrawals, will add to the demand of the coin in the crypto-verse. This means that with full functionality, Binance will assist TRX in regaining its number 9 spot on coinmarketcap.com and even facilitating at top 5 finish by the end of 2018.
A second reason why Binance is key to breaking the current TRX price decline is that the exchange is currently handling the highest daily trade volume of any exchange. Binance is handling a total of $1.124 Billion in trade volume at the moment of writing this. This means TRX will get more trade action once deposits and withdrawals resume. Binance has also instituted a TRX trading competition worth 10 Million in TRX to entice more TRX trading.
Lastly, the solid partnership between Binance and the Tron Foundation has resulted in the former guaranteeing permanent TRX token migration until the last TRX token is converted. This means once again, Binance is the focal point of TRX token migration after the Tron Independence Day.
Summing it all up, the crypto exchange of Binance will play a big role in TRX trading activities since the exchange announced it will support permanent token migration for the foreseeable future. With the resumption of TRX deposits and withdrawals sometime this week, the price of our favorite coin of TRX will no longer be as low as it is right now. Another way of viewing this is seeing the current low TRX value as an opportunity to get some more TRX in the crypto markets.
