Welcome to our monthly newsletter update, where we are continuously providing you updates on what is happening at Horizon State. Great progress has been made in the last month on all sides of the business with: even more features being built and released by our development team, listing on a new exchange, and new team members coming on board to help support our business development and growth efforts.
Minister’s Recreational Fishing Advisory Council Vote — South Australia
Over the last couple of months we have been working on a new voting solution and delivery to the South Australian Government. This vote is to establish and elect the final five members of the Minister‘s Recreational Fishing Advisory Council. The vote features our new preferential voting solution we provided an update on last month (more on this below) and started on the 18th of February, concluding on the 18th of March.
There are 42 candidates from all over the state up for election to fill the five positions and there are already four appointed members who represent key recreational fishing organisations. Of the five individual member positions at least one will be female, one an inland fisher and at least one person representing the tackle sector. This voting method is called ‘preferential voting with reserved seats’ and was made possible by using our new preferential voting feature and a specifically tailored vote-counting code we developed for the client.

HST Listing on Bittrex International
Having our token listed on such an established exchange will ensure that HST is available to a far wider audience, and further cement Horizon State as a long term player in this space.
It has been a long journey for us getting to this point, but this is not the end of the road for us with regard to exchange listings. Dan will be working on this aspect ongoing to ensure the token continues to live a healthy and liquid life in the future.

TipBot launched on Telegram
Speaking of the community AMA, one question that came up last month was whether or not a HST tipping bot could be integrated with the Telegram channel.
Yes it can! And on Tuesday the 5th of March, it went live. We decided to go with the ParJar Telegram bot and the team have been great in helping us get up and running so quickly.
When we see comments we think are conducive to promoting thoughtful discussion, we will be tipping those comments. Our community are already getting the hang of this.
Feel free to jump into our Telegram channel and give it a go!
