Weekly dApp News
The @NFTShowroom crypto art market dApp has published a major update. Included are look-and-feel changes, Unlockables feature, and a referral system. More details about these features can be found here.
@Splinterlands has deployed an update which significantly changes the league system. This change makes it such that leagues have Collection Power requirements. Meaning, the size and quality of Splinterlands card collection is taken into account when determining each player’s league. Read more about this update here.
@HiveList, an app for listing goods and services for sale, has been listed on StateOfTheDapps. Hivelist — Classifieds, HiveCommerce, and Business Services.
This week the LEO token market price surged on news of an upcoming wrapped LEO Ethereum token. Wrapped LEO (wLEO) would allow LEO token holders to transact on the ever-popular Uniswap DEX. This news comes just weeks after wrapped Hive (wHIVE) emerged and two wHIVE Uniswap trading pairs were created. More information about wLEO can be found in this post.
Also this week, BarterTrade.io publicly announced plans to build a Hive-based social platform. A portion of fees collected for Hive trading pairs will be donated to the Hive DAO. And an upcoming AMA session is planned and will be lead by @theycallmedan. This announcement was made on Twitter here.
