"The KMD 0.34% broke out of a downtrend channel. Stoch RSI is indicating that it is to be found in the region of overbought. A possible break of the downtrend channel sugests long positions, but for now, no sign. "

"AMA Mondays" series, Komodo introduced an ecosystem spotlight feature where it will be an AMA session with one of the projects which have decided to leverage Komodo's technology for their own business ventures. The first ever spotlight was held on September 24th and it featured Verus Coin, a fork of KMD. Verus notably developed a unique PoW / PoS hybrid consensus mechanism and also has a native, also in-house designed hash function.
Finally, Verus will use Komodo's latest implementation of the Crypto-terms protocol to launch the Inter-Chain Meta Contracts, which should help fulfill Verus' vision of creating decentralized public-blockchain-as-a-service (PBaaS) products. The project seems to be keen to focus on public voting applications of the blockchain technology. Through their co-operation, all of these features will be introduced to the Komodo Platform. The complete AMA and a presentation of the relationship between these two projects can be found here and here.
