The cryptocurrency markets have lost a staggering $20 Billion in the last 24 hours. The total market capitalization of the crypto markets stood at $273 Billion only yesterday; now it is valued at $253 Billion. The King of Crypto, Bitcoin (BTC), has somewhat held its own with a drop of 6% in the same time period and now trading at $6,392. BTC has since increased its market dominance to 43.2% as more traders prefer BTC in times of turmoil.
It is with the latter act of preferring BTC that the price of Tron (TRX) has also been dealt a major blow in the last 24 hours. TRX has lost 9.5% of its value in 24 hours and is currently trading at $0.033.
However, this is only temporary.
Initial reports indicate that the loss in market value has come as a direct effect of the Bancor Exchange hack that has resulted in the loss of digital assets worth $23.5 Million. The crypto market reaction follows a similar trend after the last 3 hacks (Coincheck, Coinrail and Bithumb) were announced in the crypto verse. What then proceeded, is a market recovery only a few days later. Therefore, all the TRX HODLers have to do, is to keep holding their TRX.
Another reason why the value of TRX will not be so low for too long, is that Binance plans on resuming withdrawals and deposits on the exchange sometime this week. This means that TRX holders can now move their TRX around to their wallets and cold storage thus decreasing the circulating supply available for trading. The influx of TRX into exchanges for the token migration, was a contributing factor for the decline in value of TRX by increasing the supply in exchanges whereas the demand was low.
Thirdly, the Tron MainNet has been working flawlessly since the Genesis Block was released on the Tron Independence Day. With a capability of 2,000 transactions per second, it is only a matter of time before the Tron Network decentralizes the web as well as the entertainment industry. Ethereum World News had earlier hinted that the Adult Film industry might be willing to tap into the Tron Blockchain and offer DApps for its viewers.
In conclusion, the current price decline of TRX is temporary due to the Bancor hack as well as the lack of liquidity of TRX from the numerous exchanges still facilitating the token migration. Once that is done, and the market recovers after the hack, it is all systems go for an increment in the value of TRX.
