Tron Price Analysis: TRX/USD Bullish Wave Resuming
Tron recently broke out of its long-term descending trend line to signal that a reversal is underway. Price pulled back upon hitting the 0.0360 area but seems to be done with its correction now. Tron is bouncing off the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level that lines up with the 0.0215 level and is close to the 200 SMA dynamic inflection point. If this is enough to keep losses at bay, the price could resume the climb to the swing high and beyond. A deeper correction could still draw support at the 100 SMA dynamic inflection point close to the broken trend line. The shorter-term moving average is below the longer-term 200 SMA, though, indicating that the path of least resistance is to the downside or that the selloff is more likely to resume than to reverse.

Bullish Tron Price Momentum Yields Significant TRX/BTC Gains
After a somewhat brutal Sunday for cryptocurrency and digital asset markets, it quickly became evident this week would be off to a rough start. So far, that concept still holds true, as a lot of the top markets remain in the red. One notable exception is the Tron price, as it seems to buck the overall bearish trend. Given some of the recent ecosystem developments, that shouldn?t come as a big surprise. Any cryptocurrency or digital asset is only as strong as its community and the ongoing developments. While most people may still be somewhat wary of Tron in this regard, no one can deny the project is both ambitious and successful to date. It is only normal all of those developments positively impact the Tron price in one way or another. For the time being, the momentum is rather positive, although there is still some pressure to contend with as well.

13 Ways Tron Went From Shit Coin to Formidable Ethereum Alternative
Fake it till? you make it. A well known proverb that has privately helped many individuals reach a point of success in their lives. However, I have never really publicly witnessed a successful execution of this strategy in realtime until the end of 2017. The person I am referring to is Justin Sun of the Tron Foundation. He literally took a project that had next to nothing when they first launched with a plagiarized white-paper from Ethereum, a facade that this project was happening under the close guidance of Alibaba founder Jack Ma, a team comprised of nondescript individuals, and turned Tron into one of the most formidable alternative to the Ethereum blockchain. Today, this same project now holds a market valuation of $1 billion, employs more than 100 engineers worldwide, and has even executed one of the most clever acquisitions in the crypto space with BitTorrent.
