EMX Token Sale updates

Our Token Sale on September 9 is fast approaching! We're excited to announce that we are partnering with ProBit Exchange, the fastest growing fiat-to-crypto exchange in South Korea, to sell and list the EMX Token. We chose ProBit as a sale partner due to its large and active community of Korean traders, and the ability to list a KRW currency pair for EMX.

Accepted Currencies: BTC, ETH, PROB, USDT, XRP

Price Per Unit: $0.15 USD / EMX

Minimum Purchase: $1 USD

BONUS: 10% when buying with PROB, 8% when buying with BTC, ETH, USDT or XRP.

Product & Engineering updates

As always, the EMX Engineering team is working around the clock, listening to user feedback and adding new features. We recently launched an EMX Market Summary that provides a quick overview of contract performance over the last 7 days. Check it out at https://trade.emx.com/summary. We also just launched Trailing Stops on EMX, which will improve risk management for all our traders. You can access trailing stops by clicking on "Stop" orders on the order entry ticket.

Marketing updates

Our trading challenge kicked off on the EMX Testnet, with over 1,100 participants vyings for $25,000 in prizes. Several influencers - MMCrypto, Bagsy, Gem Club, BitEunsa, Crypto Differ, CryptoSmart, G. Crypto, Gagarin, and many more - have been participating in the competition or helping us get the word out.

If you haven’t joined the competition already, here is a link to the live leaderboard.

As a result, we’ve seen massive upticks in global community growth, from South Korea to Vietnam and Brazil. Now, the total EMX community has grown to 28,000 strong, and the media is noticing our progress. We’re proud to see continued growth, and the response to our exchange has been overwhelmingly positive. We wouldn’t be in this place without our earliest supporters, so thank you all for being with us.

In the coming weeks, look out for more community programs, including weekly giveaways for the most active community members, an Ambassador Program, and more trading competitions.
