Highlight of the fortnight
Fetch.ai to hold Catalyst Sale on Bitfinex
On 18 August FET was listed on Bitfinex and we’re excited to follow that development with the news that we have been selected by Bitfinex for its inaugural secondary token sale program: Catalyst Sales.
The sale will begin at 10am UTC on 27 August. Learn more about Catalyst Sales.
1 million FET tokens (the equivalent of less than 0.09% of the total amount of FET tokens that will ever exist) will be available in the limited sale. In the run-up to the sale, we are also holding a trading competition. The winner will receive 40,000 FET. It closes on 25 August though so get involved while you can!
New videos show the road ahead
We are thrilled to have been able to share two new videos with the community. The first outlines the project as a whole, and the second (shown below) unveils the prototype we have worked on with T-Systems:
First look at Mettalex
In recent days we have shared with the community the first look at the Mettalex platform and some of the major businesses currently operating on the beta version. We can’t wait to share more details about it!
We also shared a new article that discusses Mettalex.
Fetch.ai CEO interviewed on Fox Business
Earlier this month, Humayun spoke to Fox about why businesses need the innovative AI and machine learning solutions Fetch.ai provides. We’re glad to be able to share the recording of the broadcast with you.
Senior leadership promotions announced
As we continue our transition from research to the commercial deployment of our groundbreaking AI and machine learning technology, we’re pleased to announce that Toby Simpson has been promoted from CTO to COO and our head of research Jonathan Ward has been promoted to CTO.
We thank them both for all of their hard work so far and we wish them the best of luck in their new roles with us.
