Bullish Rolls Onto the Runway and Sets to Take Off
Bullish went live with its Private Pilot exchange. The program will last 7 weeks. Several features planned for the public release have already been deployed. Mimic conditions include “product functionality, exchange operation, and customer support”. The most exciting features will undoubtedly be the proprietary Hybrid Order Book and Bullish Liquidity Pools. B1 and Bullish remain community focused as demonstrated by Brendan Blumer’s proactive inquiry into the most desired assets for trade:
What #EOS assets are you most keen to trade on an exchange?
Bullish is giving away YubiKeys. They will be used for logging in (instead of passwords). This method should prove a step up from most current crypto solutions. A few regular contributors of EOS chat rooms have already been able to try out the Bullish UI, including Everything EOS:
The UX/UI for #Bullish is *top notch*!
Voice Update: Summer Launch Coming Soon

If you’re looking for insight into how Voice envisions the future of NFTs, read Evolution of online creation: 2006-now where Emily Drewry interviews John Zobele:
instead of making art for art’s sake, you’re making art for an algorithm.
Zobele went on to say:
...Five to 10 years later you want to relive those moments, and want to remember those moments — things come in circles.

The event commences this weekend and expects to make a prime time impact. Twitch is among the streaming platforms. The actual freestyle battles will take place live on Cryptovoxels.
B1 Wire: Spotlight on Brendan Blumer
The teams that comprise B1 go beyond Bullish and Voice. Let's not mistake B1's recent modesty concerning the EOS mainnet for a slowdown in activity. Consider the implications behind Blumer's recent tweet (above) about the potential for scaling Bitcoin. He focused on Bitcoin's stable base layer towards multi-layer solutions. B1's CEO also discussed product development in general as well as KYC/AML laws.

Grabbing eyes this week was the thrilling art of Finney X Chain Creatures. Kool Keith also gave a shout-out to Crytpowriter and Finney. Taylor Arnold provided an outline of how engagement rewards work. Don’t for get to check out the round 12 winners. The Shift PopUp sessions (12, 13, 14), a sort of game night series centered around NFTs, are running as long as nearly a work day. Amazing 😎! With DAPP bridges active, will events that transpire on Ethereum also make for EOS news (probably if it’s about ETH cats 🙄 )? Has Finney been hanging out with OG?
