The news today is led by DTube and its token sale, and David Pakman and 3Speak.

3. Promising prospects for Metalpay and Steem
It rather went unnoticed on Steem but there has been a recent flurry of publicity about the 'Libra Killer' Metalpay project.
Erik Finman, known as the youngest Bitcoin millionaire, is backing the crypto/fiat payment system with his Bitcoin wealth.
This is good for Steem as a couple of months ago Steem teamed up with Metalpay and is now one of the 17 cryptocurrencies that Metalpay tokens (MTL) can be converted into.
