Bojan Tomić and Domagoj Poljak have held a Bitshares workshop at Effectus University College for Law and Finance in Zagreb, Croatia.

Full details HERE
The Bitcoin Latina team may have introduced ‘Bitcoin Latina’ a Bitshares UIA ‘BCL’. BCL has been said to capture the best of Bitcoin (mining creation mechanism), Ethereum (initial release mechanism) and BitShares (operational real time performance). Bitcoin Latina are also kindly airdropping 10 BCL tokens to all Bitshares holders on the 14th of February. You can get more information about Bitcoin Latina and the reasons they chose Bitshares as their backbone HERE
CryptoBridge (A Exchange platform operating on the Bitshares network) has announced that they have added 6 new members to the team. New additions to the team include 2 mobile developers, 2 backend developers, frontend developer and a manager. The platform has had an explosive entry into the space and has an ambitious roadmap (including Multi signature federated gateway network/protocol, decentralized margin and bond markets). They have also announced an updated/revised roadmap will be released in March 2018. Find more information HERE
The Bitshares Blockchain Foundation has announced new email addresses to support workers and improve communications and processes. Separate email accounts have been setup for new and existing workers, invoices and reports. Any current or future workers should see the official announcement and use these new addresses for all future communications with the BBF. You can find the full details HERE
This week CryptoBridge have distributed the equivalent 11.8286 BTC or approximately $119,066.68 USD in staking rewards to holders on the Bitshares UIA Bridge.BCO (Staking required locking the token to the network in order to receive a share of trading commissions on the platform). This month has seen 5564 users staking the token and looking month on month there is no trouble seeing their platform is growing from strength to strength. This can also be observed in trading volume of the Bridge.*** assets on the DEX which are increasingly visible within the Most active DEX pairs. More information HERE
This week has seen a 47.52% increase in BTS committed to Open orders on the Bitshares DEX. Open orders are akin to Market Makers who are providing liquidity to the Bitshares DEX either from open buy or sell orders.
From this week forward the Top 100 table in the data below contains BTS holdings, Open orders and BTS as collateral. The new addition here is BTS as collateral which was not reported in my previous reports. I have updated the reference data so that %Change does include last week’s total including BTS as collateral which should give an accurate % change of overall BTS holdings per account. This change was requested by @funcrypto last week and after a community poll it was agreed that including the collateral will help give a more accurate picture of the top accounts on the network.
This week’s Bitshares hangout recording has been published and is available HERE
Current registered wallets/accounts within the Bitshares network is 739324; an increase of 29287 wallets/accounts since last week
