Don’t Google it — Presearch it!

Our strong brand is one of our biggest assets — now is the time to unlock its potential. Googling it became a thing, but now many don’t want to be associate with that brand. Let’s give people a new way to say they’re searching.

Development Update

Here’s a look at what’s new on the development front.

Logic to support grandfathering node stakes

We’ve updated the logic for node staking to support two levels of minimum node staking. To control rapid growth in nodes, and after community feedback, we have decided to double the minimum required stake for new nodes to receive rewards to 2,000 PRE. This will go into effect one week from today at the time of next week’s update. All existing nodes will be allowed to continue to operate and receive rewards with the current minimum stake of 1,000 PRE. Please note that if you increase your stake, that will become the new minimum required. Also, those who do stake the new minimum will receive rewards at the rate for 2k PRE staked as opposed to 1k.

Marketing & Community Update

We made several announcements on Friday.
