1. Steem Monsters partners with TRON
Steem Monsters has announced a major partnership with TRON.
Steem Monsters has partnered with the Sesameseed organization who are the top block producer on the TRON blockchain. Sesameseed runs a crowdfunding platform called SEEDGerminator which allows projects to raise funding from the Sesameseed and TRON community.
The funds raised from the SEEDGerminator campaign will be used to create a new front-end website for the game which will be integrated in certain ways with the TRON blockchain and various TRON wallet software.
There will be a gradual rebranding of Steem Monsters to the new non-chain specific name of Splinterlands.
The game will continue to be based on the Steem blockchain.
2. Steem Monsters raises $100,000 in 27 hours
Steem Monsters has raised $100,000 through a Steem-Engine Security Token Offering.
Steem Monsters created a SMTT token (Steem Monsters Team Token). In 27 hours US$ 100,000 was raised through sales of the token to less than 10 investors.
