In the past 30 days, Minter’s native digital coin made some serious progress in trading on an open market. Bithumb Global saw record-breaking trading volumes, Hotbit successfully listed BIP in two pairs at once, and CoinGecko — whose credibility is hard to overestimate — started ranking the network by its capitalization.

Step by step, the community is migrating to a single informational website, which is minter.org. First users have already signed up for MinterID, set up their public profiles, and joined the POPularization.

As our product focus remains fixed on rewards, the community approached Reddit and CoinGecko with a proposition to integrate Minter coins.
