The largest social network on the blockchain, Steemit, announces the launch of a new cryptocurrency project. It aims at creating new revenue streams through consumer involvement, expanding the client base and developing the opportunities for content-oriented social platforms.

According to the project's whitepaper, Steem’s Smart Media Tokens (SMTs) are "to give anyone the power to launch and sell Proof-of-Brain tokens, which are tokens distributed by “upvote” and “like”-based algorithms and can be integrated with websites to align incentives and spur growth, while websites are empowered to adopt sustainable, currency-centric revenue models". 

Ned Scott, CEO Steemit, claims that the new software will allow leading media and social media platforms to create Smart Media Tokens (SMTs) based on Steem's blockchain.

As reported, the integration of a customizable and clever system of tokens will be available both for editions and small independent blogs on WordPress. On top of that, the system involves remuneration not only for publishers, but also for consumers based on their contribution: likes, comments and votes, which is to serve as the basis for new revenue streams.

GRAM May be Traded at Liquid at Triple ICO Price

Bloomberg says that Telegram tokens, that may appear at Liquid will be sold by Gram Asia at $4 per token, but there's no official info from Telegram

Even before the official public release of the cryptocurrency of the messenger, Telegram can increase in price by 200% relative to its value during the initial offer of coins. It is reported by Bloomberg.

As previously reported, Telegram tokens may appear on the Liquid Bitcoin Exchange already on July 10. The distributor is Gram Asia, which calls itself the largest holder of GRAM tokens in Asia. It intends to put up for sale rights to cryptocurrency at $ 4 per unit.

At the same time, one of the investors said to the publication that at the time of purchase the price of 1 Gram was $ 1.33.

It is worth noting, however, that after the announcement of the public sale of Telegram tokens to Liquid, the media reported that this intention had nothing to do with the official plans of Telegram.

Then one of Telegram's investors stated that no one has the right to sell tokens before their official launch in accordance with the signed agreement. Moreover, representatives of the popular messenger noted that they first heard about Gram Asia.

Later, CEO Liquid Mike Kayamora admitted that Telegram has no relation to the placement on Liquid: the deal was concluded exclusively between the exchange and Gram Asia, which allegedly is an incubator for the TON project.

The Block's leading analyst Larry Chermak on several tweets expressed skepticism about the announced Telegram tokenale based on the Liquid stock exchange, saying that he would “think twice before making a decision to invest.”
