For the last several months we have been working on reforming our expert community and on making overall improvements to our platform. We have carried out reforms with different directives, such as revoking the expert status of those who used it only as a label without being an active member of the community and the implementation of mandatory written reviews for ratings. The KYC procedure helped us to make certain who are the committed and conscientious experts. About 100 experts who didn’t go through the procedure lost their expert status last month.

On the other hand, many projects’ teams were ready to pass through the process and, moreover, once we announced the start of KYC on our platform, some ICOs volunteered to go through the procedure and part of them have already successfully passed it.

During this week, we have…
