They will accept deposits and withdrawals of USDT on the Tron network as well as the orogian Omni protocol chain. However, once in possession of Poloniex exchange, the company will be exchanging Omni protocol USDT to that of the new Tron network chain. The exchange is planning air drops as well. “The amount of USDT we receive in the airdrop will be based on the amount we convert. Once the airdrop begins, Poloniex customers will be credited based on the amount of Tether they hold on Poloniex.” - Poloniex Press Release

MIT Blockchain Network Launching


A novel proof-of-stake network is now reaching reality after being designed in a contest in 2017. Alogrand was created by MIT professor and Turing Award winner Silvio Micali in 2017. Their network has garnered $66 million in funding since then with backers including venture capital firms Union Square Ventures and Pillar. Alogorand hopes to reach all the typical benefits of blockchain technology as a decentralized system that affords both scalability and security, but unlike many others, will eliminate of the risk of “forking” or splitting into separate networks. “Opening TestNet to the public is a major milestone on our journey to the open source release of the technology. Today marks the latest step forward in our overall mission to enable the broader Algorand community to collaborate, innovate and contribute to the evolution of our public, permissionless blockchain platform.” - CEO Steve Kokinos
