Kambria Progress Report -- July 2019, Part 1

BINANCE CHAIN AND BINANCE DEX APPROVAL

This week we were excited to announce that Kambria received positive votes from Binance Chain validators and will be executing the listing command for Binance DEX! Very soon, KAT will be listed on the world’s largest decentralized exchange. 

In preparation, we have created a tool to assist our community in swapping their ERC-20 KAT over to Binance Chain. With the Kambria Token Bridge, the simple migration process over to the newly minted BEP2 KAT takes only a few minutes. You are encouraged to swap your tokens to take advantage of the many benefits our migration to Binance Chain provides, including non-custodial, high liquidity trading, contests, and very secure wallet options. We hope that you are as thrilled with this news as we are!

We have also created several resources to assist you with the token swap process. If you have any questions, please contact one of our admins through Telegram for help.
