The cryptocurrency market is trading mostly in the red this Friday morning. Most coins in the top 10 cryptocurrencies are either just above the percentage gains threshold or just below. EOS and TRON (TRX) are currently in the green, but Litecoin (LTC) is trading down.
Let’s take a closer look at these projects and their latest movements.
Recently, the official ‘EOS’ Twitter name was changed to Block.one. Block.one is the blockchain-based company that formed EOS. The company must be taking bets that most people truly interested in EOS know about Block.one, but I’m sure those new to the crypto community might get a bit confused.
However, in 2018 it seems the diehard crypto-loyalists are the only ones who have stuck around since the crypto rise and fall in January.
Recently, Block.one announced the location and date of the EOS Global Hackathon Grand Finale.

The grand finale will be held on December 7th, in Cape Town, South Africa.
There has been lots of movement over at the TRON Foundation as of late. Since it acquired BitTorrent, the companies have formed a new web-based torrent streaming client called μTorrent.
µTorrent Web already surpassed 1,000,000 daily active users! This new product officially launched a month ago offers a #streaming and torrenting experience. You can download the #Windows version here https://t.co/Gs6XglgUrG
Mac version in the works, stay tuned 😉 https://t.co/UTiMH30G5r

It seems μTorrent Web currently has over one million active users already and the company announced that BitTorrent Web will be live soon. In addition to its BitTorrent movement, TRON has been expanding on exchanges.

On Bitfinex, users can now trade for TRX with JPY, GBP, and the EUR—making it far more accessible to those around the globe.
Litecoin will be celebrating its seventh birthday coming up on October 13th. That same day, LTC will be added to Gemini’s exchange.

In mid-September, LTC was added to the Canadian exchange Coinut. Later this month, Litecoin Founder Charlie Lee will be attending and speaking at the World Crypto Conference in Las Vegas.
I’m looking forward to be speaking at @WorldCryptoCon in Las Vegas at the end of the month. It should be a fun conference.
