Minter’s Month in Review — August 2020

The team and community are getting ready for Minter 1.2. The new version will see the arrival of all requests and suggestions piled up during the first year of operation — from more flexible validator management to new coin formats.

This release will lay the groundwork for Minter 2, which aims to tokenize loyalty points and rewards from different blockchains and corporate systems. Our ultimate goal is to have a single system for all of the world’s major points and ensure they can be swapped for leading cryptocurrencies, stablecoins, digital goods, etc.
