Steemhunt Announces IEO

Steemhunt have announced their plan to launch the HUNT token via an Initial Exchange Offering (IEO).

> Today, we are thrilled to introduce our plan to launch the HUNT token via an Initial Exchange Offering (IEO). We will run the IEOs via three exchanges during March 2019, and start to list HUNT token in Daybit right after the IEOs are all finished.

Steemhunt are also offering Steemians the chance for an additional 10% bonus…

> In order to estimate the sales amount and provide additional bonus for Steemians, we are running a survey event that shows how you plan to participate in the HUNT token IEO. We will send 10% bonus tokens to survey participants who purchase tokens via the IEO. This will be an ADDITIONAL bonus to the set bonus rate in the exchange itself.

@taskmaster4450 has posted an additional commentary on the announcement…


FreedomEx.io Launch

FreedomEx have announced the beta launch of the FreedomEx.io exchange on Tuesday 26 February 6pm CST / Wednesday 27 February 12am UTC.

> FreedomEx has been designed to function at the core of the STEEM ecosystem. The exchange will feature STEEM as a main trading pair, something we do not see much of in other exchanges. So, as more applications are being built, it is important that these tokenized applications have a platform that can assist in fund raising, token liquidity, increased trading volume, and price discovery. While at the same time, be paired with the STEEM main trading pair. FreedomEx will be this platform.

FreedomEx will include a fiat gateway service for STEEM/USD, STEEM/CAN, and STEEM/EUR. It will also support the SCT (Smart Contract Token) created on the Steem-Engine platform.


KURE is Finally Online

Steem witness and developer @krnel has announced that an early release of his new community curation platform KURE is now online.
