Bitshares - State of the Network - 6th March 2018

Observation from this week
This section will highlight any observations made while analysing the data.
@fox has announced the release of the official Bitshares Core Developer worker proposal on the Bitshares network. This worker proposal named '201803-bitshares-core' is now live and the community can cast their vote within the Bitshares wallets. I am happy to report that within this week support has pushed this worker into being actively funded (your votes are still required if you want to ensure this team is well supported into the future). Find more information HERE
AEX exchange (formally known as BTC38) has announced that they have issued GAT (Global AEX Token) on the Bitshares blockchain. GAT is similar to Binance's BNB token and can be used as transaction fees or used for voting on new coins listings; AEX will also use a percentage of the exchange income to buy back GAT tokens from the market. Gat tokens will be distributed via a daily airdrop (that needs to be claimed each day) to BTC, BTS, ETH, LTC and NSS tokens holder on the exchange. More information HERE
A new team of application developers has made themselves known to the community this week with the release of the email-notifier for BitShares DEX. The Notifier allows Bitshares users to subscribe to email alert for account changes such as Transfers, Fill Order execution, or, soon, breach of collateral ratio. The code for the notifier is open source and there are instructions available to run the service on your own node; alternatively the team is offering the service to the community for 50 BTS per user for a lifetime subscription. The team have also confirmed, that it's building a wallet application (named Trusty) on top of BitShares, and they plan to also open-source the SDK framework used. You can find the source code and information to run the service or subscribe to their service HERE. Keep an eye out for this team on upcoming Beyond Bitcoin / Bitshares talk hangouts. If you want to get in contact with this team you can reach them via the telegram account @trustyarm.
