It’s pleasant to know that Steem is finally in the $0.40 levels, having recently broken past the $0.50 ceiling despite the ongoing bear market in the wider cryptocurrency community space.
We’re also very proud to finally be in among the top 100 Steem witnesses! We’re pretty much still in the beginning stages as it is only less than 50 days since our official run for Steem Witness. Nevertheless, we are continuing our efforts to bring value into the Steem community as well as fulfilling the witness pledge we originally set out to do.
And now, onto our updates as usual!
1. Bitcoin and Litecoin Halving
Keep track of the Bitcoin and Litecoin Halving right in CoinGecko.com!
As a refresher, a Halving refers to when the mining rewards for a cryptocurrency is cut by half (divided into 2). This is done to reduce the inflation rate of the cryptocurrency and ensure that only a fixed amount of cryptocurrency will ever be produced throughout the entire lifespan of the cryptocurrency.
2. Marketcap now easier to see from coin page
We’ve done some slight tweaks to the appearance of the coin to better see the Market Capitalization Rankings of each coin.
3. Sort columns in Exchange
Just like sorting in coin pages, we’ve added the feature to sort each column in the Exchange page as well. While pairs are sorted by 24 volume in the descending order by default, you can now tweak the lists to your preference.
Coins and ICO
We added 63 new coins and 18 ICO/IEO to our platform from the 2nd to 15th of March.
We've added 8 new exchange over the past 2 weeks.
