    1. See CashShuffle (done) and CashFusion (current state: alpha testing).

  3. SLP Tokens - tokens built on Bitcoin Cash

The future will be more optimistic to BCH with BTC with high fee like that I shifted all or almost total of my earnings (that aren't that much) to BCH that is almost zero in fees💪 and with a good support I hope in future I build a powerful BCH house in Mozambique👌
