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.

3. Steemhunt begins Market-Price-Pegged HUNT Bounty program

Steemhunt has now completed its impressive run of Initial Exchange Offerings with each round selling out in minutes or even seconds. Listing of the HUNT token will begin on the Daybit exchange in the next few weeks.

The innovative market-price-pegged HUNT bounty program has now begun. The program includes annual returns to delegators of 20% through a mix of STEEM, SBD and HUNT tokens.
