Taking a Look at Top Altcoin Cryptocurrency Headlines for TRON, XRP & IOTA This Week
This week has been a disaster for crypto markets and investors in the crypto space are disheartened. This fall comes as a surprise to most people as the markets were stable for at least a couple of months prior. Even though a vast majority of cryptos took a harsh beating, some like TRON, XRP and IOTA held their own.
TRON is always in the news cycle for increasing their use cases. This week was no exception. The TRON Project was listed on two more exchanges; namely Blockport and Scatter.
We’re excited to announce the listing of @Tronfoundation on our trading platform!
Blockport users can now buy and sell Tron’s token, $TRX, directly through our Euro gateway.

They even made headlines for NEOWorld.
“Players will earn NASH by taking part in projects which require collaborative work such as helping build up a theatre where actors can perform or other services within a building that has already completed. Players can also buy NASH from crypto exchanges or from other players. Then you will be able to use NASH to buy more land or improve the land that the players are the owner of.”
XRP has had a huge week. They not only surpassed Ethereum to become the second biggest crypto by market size, but they also have more than $3.5 billion lead over it.
Another big news for XRP this week was when CIMB Group, the fifth-biggest bank of Southeast Asia confirmed a partnership with Ripple. They stated:
“Ripple’s blockchain-based solution has been deployed to enhance CIMB’s proprietary remittance product called SpeedSend. This service allows customers to send and receive money with direct account crediting and instant cash collection. The enhancement improves their access to cross-border remittances across the globe — both inbound into ASEAN and outbound to other countries. It is already enabling remittances to corridors such as Australia, USA, UK and Hong Kong. This innovative blockchain solution will revolutionize international cross-border remittances, and is a testament to CIMB’s ongoing efforts to enhance its digital banking proposition by providing speedy and cost-efficient solutions to our customers across ASEAN.”
IOTA is the biggest Internet of Things project in the crypto ecosystem and they got even bigger with their partnership with Bosch. The companies will work together to integrate blockchain technology with physically manufactured hardware.
“The use of the innovative IOTA Tangle technology results in higher scalability and becomes faster and even more secure the more activity there is. It is, therefore, a serious transaction settlement and data transfer layer for the Internet of Things. Connected devices & data drive the future of our world. A very promising development in this area is taking place right now!”
Earlier they had partnered with Volkswagen too.
