News & Events
For you to keep track of what’s really important—and us, to make these roundups in a more convenient way—we’ll divide all news and events into those related to products and those related to technologies.
- Minter has added support for ETH, which is now freely movable between Minter and Ethereum. Good news: you don’t need to wrap Ether into wETH to deposit it into Minter network, Console will do that for you
- We’ve announced a cashback program for fees paid when making cross-chain transfers via Minter Hub. Transferred tokens from Ethereum to Minter and the other way around? Request your fees back!
- The HUBABUBA token with its everyday farming and raffles can be rightfully considered one of the most engaging community activities
- Not enough raffles? We’ve got your back: here’s one more, 10 HUB every day (pool: HUB-USDTE, participants: liquidity providers supplying 1 HUB/100 USDTE and more, end date: September 1, 2021)
- If you’d been farming HUB on Uniswap, you can claim rewards accumulated since the beginning of April using this link
