1. SMT Testnet is Live
Steemit Inc have now launched the Testnet for Smart Media Tokens....
We have long said that our mission is to onboard the masses to the blockchain by tokenizing the web. After SMTs, every website and web application will be able to have their own powerful cryptocurrency customized to meet their own needs and maximize their own business and social objectives.
There will now be a period of several months where witnesses, developers and anyone interested are encouraged to set up a testnet and investigate and experiment with SMTs to help catch any bugs in the code.
There is no target date given for when the hardfork will take place to move the SMTs onto the mainnet, but the Steemit Inc team will be giving a presentation at SteemFest 4 with more details...
