Tradeqwik paid the second dividend for TQS. This dividend will now be paid every Sunday night/Monday morning during the weekly maintenance cycle. A dividend you can count on that acts a bit like a multi-crypto faucet.
We are pleased to announce that Tradeqwik added SBD to its trading pairs and awarded its first 750 users one SBD each. Unlike the way SBD was treated before, where it was pegged to the US Dollar, this time it is a plain old cryptocurrency trading at market rate, which according to Coin Marketcap, is now 94 cents. What this means for all Steemit users is that you now have a clear and easy pathway to send your liquid earnings to Tradeqwik and trade them. You can trade them for VIVA, and then into STEEM, then send it back to Steemit to power up. You could also trade it into something else or keep it as VIVA. The latter option is one you will want to seriously consider. You'll see why in a bit. By tomorrow you will see a clear pathway for SBD deposits and withdrawals when logged into your Tradeqwik account. In the mean time, you can make an SBD deposit the same way you would make a STEEM deposit. Just be sure to use your VIVA ID in the deposit memo line.
Tradeqwik now offers trading of US Dollars, as vUSD. It currently shows as the VIVA/USD market pair. When you own 1 vUSD, you can always count on being able to trade it for one US Dollar's worth of VIVA.
VIVA Cash is launching as an alpha pilot program this week, so be on the lookout for it no later than Friday. When fully functional VIVA Cash will allow you to purchase US Dollars with your VIVA at any cash station and then send it to your friends and family by SMS text message. For now it will be available to VIVA Crown holders to test. If you would like to participate in this early stage you can work with a Crownholder or you can become a Crownholder yourself. You can trade your VIVA for Crowns on Tradeqwik. The going rate is currently 500 VIVA per Crown.
More big news: The VIVA Crownholders have overwhelmingly voted to increase the VIVA peg. It is currently $5.50 plus/minus ten percent for each VIVA. This will gradually be increased to the new peg over a 90 day period. This means that now is the time to buy VIVA. Remember those SBD earnings I mentioned earlier? If you wait, VIVA will be more expensive.
This also means it's time for a new contest. Guess the new VIVA peg. Obviously, if you are a VIVA Crownholder or otherwise already know the new peg you may not participate. Everyone else, have at it. If you hit it within 10 percent you will get an upvote.
Also, remember to check to see if @tradeqwik is following you. There are now 758 Tradeqwik customers and Tradeqwik is only following 99 of you, so if you're not included, then please don't be shy. Simply post your VIVA ID here and ask for a follow and you'll get it.
And with that, we now give you... (drum roll please!)... the numbers!
