LAST WEEK’S News and Reports

◢ NAS Token Exchange With Bonus Program a Complete Success

To give back to the Nebulas community and protect the interests of Nebulas supporters, Nebulas launched a Nebulas Token Exchange with Bonus Program starting from 3:00 a.m., November 25th. Last week the program was completed with a great success. Of the 5 million Nebulas tokens circulating in the community, 4,494,378 NAS tokens have been sent to our official wallet address and locked up.

The fact that nearly 90% of the tokens have been sent back showed the high degree of consensus of the Nebulas community.

◥Community Meetups

After meetups in Silicon Valley, New York, Singapore and Shenzhen, Nebulas went on to hold two more in Shanghai and Beijing on December 9 and 10 respectively, with both event venues packed with interactive audience.
