Missed last week’s updates? No problem, check out the recap below:

Last week in review: most important takeaways

  • Search rewards at .10, traffic >3.8 million searches and >75% unrewarded
  • 2.8M registered users
  • 155M+ PRE staked between keywords and nodes
  • Token value ~25 cents — high volatility
  • Over 46,000 nodes on the Presearch testnet
  • Continuing to scale platforms
  • OpenSea integration

Node Operator NFT drop and Preberry release

In the coming weeks, we will be getting the node operator NFTs out to draw the Raspberry Pi winners!

Challenges and Responses

  • Ethereum gas fees
  • Costs for handling transactions on the Ethereum network continue to be crazy this week, with transaction fees in the $30-$50 range. This has added to delays on withdrawals. Once we implement Web3 withdrawals, we will be able to support PRE on different blockchains as well, which will help significantly.
  • Rewards experience improvements
  • We are now working on rewards 2.0 to resolve the challenges with the current reward system.
  • Working through withdrawals backlog
  • We’re continuing to work through the backlog of withdrawals that accumulated over the past few months. If you’re waiting on an urgent withdawal, we welcome you to email us at: withdrawals@presearch.io
