Our pick of the week is SPEDN, which uses FlexaCoin on the FLEXA payment network to allow users to spend their BTC / ETH / BCH / GUSD (more coming soon) at a growing list of merchants including Starbucks, GameStop, Nordstrom, Whole Foods, and more. It was presented at #Consensus2019 this week by the Tyler Winklevoss. This announcement brought FlexaCoin’s market-cap to about 120m USD, making it nearly a #50 cryptocurrency.

👨💻 Token Valley Posts
Our CEO Elias Ahonen put out an 8-part tweet-storm about regarding suggested ways to improve UX design on EOS to encourage dApp adoption. It is essentially a summary of a Token Valley Medium article published two weeks earlier:
🏦 Token Valley News
Our Co-founder and CMO Manuel Zeiler was interviewed for Hummingbot.io’s crypto-trading newsletter regarding his previous work with trading bots. Way to go Manuel!
We ran a Twitter survey regarding the most useable dApps. EOS Knights, TronBet, PokerEOS, dmail (EOS), and Newdex (EOS) all received a number of votes.
Token Valley’s dApp submission form is now online; anyone can use it to submit a dApp for basic listing and rating on our platform. Entries have already begun coming in without any promotion. Please, share this form with any dApps you know or add them yourself! We want to hear from everyone in this ecosystem!
We are finalizing our sponsorship options this week, and will soon be coming out with a clear ‘conflict of interest policy’ in order to maintain transparency while accepting some forms of sponsorship to keep us afloat. If you want to be among our first sponsors (or just want your dApp listed for free), email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
