Happy New Year! The Swarm Team is starting off 2018 with a bang!
The markets are hot, our product is almost ripe, and we’re feeling solid going into the new year. Two themes for us this week at Swarm were AI and the SWM token. The Distressed Real Estate fund that will launch with our platform uses AI to identify the optimal opportunities for purchase. Other funds in the pipeline use AI to make smarter trading decisions, learning from signals in trading and from places like influencer Twitter feeds. Where Swarm opens up opportunities once available only to a select few, AI is what really drives the economy – recommending and making decisions faster and better than any middleman could. And the Swarm token, SWM, is the the essential element which powers this whole ecosystem. Look for a blog post from us this week detailing our plan to maximize the utility of the SWM token. Hint – it’s gonna be a gas!
Product On Schedule
Version 0.6 of the Swarm Platform was delivered this past Friday, a day ahead of schedule. Account creation, funding, review and allocation to individual funds are all coming together. Props to our friends on our Telegram channel for asking about v0.6, and sorry it was only an internal release! But we are excited to demo the platform on stage at the North America Bitcoin Conference in Miami next week and give a sneak peak! We remain on schedule for the public release of the MVP (v 0.61) of the platform on January 29.

Our New Website
Hit refresh! The new Swarm.fund site goes live soon. We’ve redesigned the site with a look, feel, and content structure to support the launch of The Swarm Portal at the end of this month. Our core focus remains on the product, so some sections of the site are designed to grow over time, but we hope you like what we’ve done with the place, and we welcome your feedback on how it can be improved!
