The days of waiting minutes or hours for a blockchain transaction to be processed are behind us (well, mostly). It wasn’t a long ago, but, for most of us, it’s unthinkable today.
The days of prohibitive gas costs are not yet behind us, but we’ve found ways around them and the use of cheaper networks and protocols is expanding. It is human nature to forget and get used to new realities fast. It is natural to expect low latency, quick transaction time processing, and affordable, almost negligible gas costs.
Snook is not going to be smooth at first. That’s the…

* IXO — It’s becoming impossible to track the different TLAs invented by our crypto community to describe different token offerings. So we made this one up to cover all possible vernaculars. :D
Below is an update on the feedback we got after the Beta.

We’re running a 2nd Beta on August 1st from 13:00 to 15:00 CET.
The Snook community has been growing steadily over the past few months. It’s very satisfying to see the engagement on Discord, Telegram and Twitter and we’ve had over 1000(!!!) applications for our upcoming Beta test. Great job Snookers ~~~~~~~:)>

Soon enough someone else would score higher, and you’d have nothing left to show that you were #1.
