You have some great things going on with @reggaesteem.

I think adding ReggaeSteem to coinmarketcal is huge. I hope all the event we have in steem will be added there. Coinmarketcal is very visited by investors and they always look there for a coin to invest in. I will promote the event in the social media.

Let me know if the contest is still on !

Awesome, thanks for your support !
