The team at the Tron (TRX) Foundation is constantly growing and Justin Sun has expressed this fact twice via twitter. The most recent is with the tweet below that shows his Tron workplace ID which has a hard to ignore number: 000001.
The second direct instant Justin Sun was asking for TRON believers to join the team, was when he let people know that the Tron foundation was looking for global members for the Core TRONICS team that will be responsible for making sure the TRON ecosystem engages new and existing members through a community based, decentralized manner. The first batch of 13 individuals was only announced 3 days ago.
However, this is as far as Justin goes in directly announcing the vacancies the Tron Foundation has at the moment of writing this.
Further investigating the popular professional networking website of Linkedin, yields the results that the Tron Foundation is looking to fill 5 vacancies in its San Francisco office through the following openings:
Blockchain Engineer – who will be charged with dealing with all matters blockchain (public chain, sidechain, private chain), multi-currency logistics, developing fintech platforms and more
Blockchain Community Operations Manager who will be charged with all things community based with the project. From Github and other technical communities, to coordinating global cross functional teams, the community operations manager is expected to be an excellent project manager amongst other requirements

As well as promoting and integrating the TRON ecosystem and products with partners. More clear duties are on the Tron Foundation linkedin page
All the mentioned job advertisements on Linkedin are only 1 month old. This means that the Tron Foundation is staying true to its word of reaching all the corners of the earth. It is only natural that the next destination after the base country of China, is the United States, and in particular, San Francisco.

XRP (XRP) Rebranding Efforts Continue To Emphasize It Is A Separate Entity From Ripple
Crypto traders have for a very long time referred to the digital asset known as XRP via the name of the Ripple company that uses the asset. Initially it was okay to interchange the two names when referring to the coin and the company, but with 3 pending lawsuits against Ripple and a SEC decision looming, it is understandable that the team at Ripple see it fit to clearly distinguish between the two entities.
The Ripple company, via its website and twitter page, has clearly outlined the differences of the two using the infographic below.
The website goes on further to state that:
Ripple, the technology company, and XRP, the independent digital asset, are distinctly different.
Ethereum World News had late last week hinted at the ongoing efforts by the Ripple company to distinguish itself from the digital asset of XRP. One of the factors that had led to this conclusion, was the new XRP symbol evident on coinmarketcap.com. This new symbol is the simple X that was part of an XRP-community effort back in May, to have a unique cryptocurrency symbol for XRP.
One other thing that might be of concern is that the SEC did not include XRP in the list of digital assets it excluded from being securities.
Perhaps this is due to the fact that the Ripple company owns approximately 60 Billion XRP with 55 Billion of that amount locked up in escrow.
A declaration of XRP being a security would mean the team at Ripple will constantly be in court to answer to the 3 lawsuits against the company as well as other infractions against securities laws in the US. The other side of the coin is that XRP is also excluded from being a security and life goes back to normal with XRP HODLers celebrating this fact.
