Jan Smejkal interviewing me at StartUp Grind Global in San Francisco

This has been a busy couple of weeks at Unikrn, unfortunately too busy for me to have been logging regular enough blogs into this Medium. I’ve been simmering, trying to remember to be patient, while waiting to share some of these awesome achievements with you all.

While I worked and waited, we’ve seen movement: UnikoinGold was listed on ddex.io, a decentralized exchange for ETH-based tokens. It’s a Draper-backed company using hybrid technology that gives it a speed kick over other decentralized exchanges. Users can trade directly from their wallets. We’re really excited to be adding this project to our ensemble.

It looks pretty cool, I hope we start to see more quality alternatives to EtherDelta going forward.

More high-quality, well-vetted exchange options creates choice for our users, and also increases visibility. We know that an increased visibility will help bring more users to our products and site, and help improve existing users’ experience with Unikrn’s products. We’ve always held that exchanges are important, but the right ones take time. Although we have a deep stable, we’re still looking for ways to increase access and improve experience.

I was at StartUp Grind this week doing a fireside chat with Jan Smejkal. The talk was a huge hit, and one in a long line of upcoming talks from Unikrn to help introduce a wider population to Unikrn, UnikoinGold, crypto and esports. I was going to share some of the big things we have coming up this week, but you’ll see more about that soon; we simply ran out of time.

As of this week, we’re responding to the high demand for our jackpots by expanding the offerings even further. Now we have 27 concurrent jackpots (upped over the last few weeks from 15) that include gear such as Blizzard and Riot gift cards, in-game skins for Dota and CS:GO, gaming peripherals and gear from our sponsors and some really cool other stuff coming soon.

Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve begun Unikrn Radio, which you can download directly, find on podcast apps, or hear first on Dash Radio Mondays at 3:00 PM Pacific. This show is broadcasts on Crypto (we’ve had Bittrex CEO Bill Shihara, Hosho co-founder Yo Sub Kwon and Boost VC CEO Adam Draper), we’re looking forward to leaning into production with the following weeks and months. Next week’s episode features the amazing Liliana Pertenava, who’s working on a crazy crypto documentary.

That’s the short run of a long list, although there’s always more ahead. Yeah, there’s more tomorrow. Much more. Patience is a virtue.
