Despite only getting withdrawals back up their week, but are already next for their project. With Launchpad, Binance’s token sale platform, set to offer the native token of Harmony, a scalable blockchain project, up for sale on the service.
As per the blog post that shared the news, Harmony’s purpose is to help business token their assets and incentivise user engagement, while also creating an open data sharing economy. Their blockchain service is said to provide business innovative state sharding and peer-to-peer networking on their blockchain. Ultimately, scaling is the showpiece of their model.
