SoS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 18 February 2019

Steemhunt has announced a major initiative to create a trade market for SMT tokens on the Korean Daybit exchange.

Others joining the project include @esteemapp, @utopian-io, @actifit, @fundition, @tasteem, @trips.teem, @dclick, @ntopaz and @kpopsteem.

The final State of Steem Forum of the current run takes place on Thursday.


Steemhunt leads SMT-Tokens Market Initiative with Daybit

Leading Steem app Steemhunt has announced an initiative to create a trade market for SMT tokens on the Daybit exchange based in South Korea.

Several other Steem apps have joined Steemhunt on the project including @esteemapp, @utopian-io, @actifit, @fundition, @tasteem, @trips.teem, @dclick, @ntopaz and @kpopsteem.

Steemhunt has made a MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) to reach an agreement with Daybit for listing STEEM/SBD tokens and to create an SMT tokens trade market. The following items have been agreed, but are subject to change depending on the circumstances :

* List Steem and SBD tokens on Daybit
* List the temporary SMT tokens on Daybit (such as ERC20) with STEEM trade pairs
* Support fundraising for SMT projects via IEO (Initial Exchange Offering)
* Support token swap of those temporary tokens to the SMT version when it’s ready
* Support fiat currency trade pairs for the SMT tokens that have enough market volume

The project is also collaborating with the cryptocurrency ranking website @coingecko to support SMT market monitoring.

One of the partners on the project Actifit have addressed the question of “Why Not Steem Engine?”…

> As we mentioned in last week’s update, we had booked our AFIT tokens on steem-engine, a great initiative by @aggroed and team.

> Yet as we were pursuing the other initiative with Daybit, we believe to reach a wide-spread growth, adoption, and raise funds, we need proper entry points to platforms and exchanges via existing protocols, and this move comes as a potential first initiative to accomplish that, hence our decision to move ahead with it instead.

@taskmaster4450 has provided further commentary on the new initiative…
