Giant CoreTeam has followed its plan for the GEX Beta release. The first part was private testing with invited experts and the media, including executives from Graviex, Gentarium, Bettex, ESBC, binary options traders and a Russian crypto vloger, Roman Tomera. The feedback was in-depth and comprehensive and addressed many different aspects of GEX. I will break it down into several topics associated with GEX.

CEO of Bettex reasonably questioned the purpose of the reputation score that is assigned to Oracles and Brokers. We have to make sure that this mechanism is clear and helpful to the user.
In addition to the platform improvements our guests gave us input regarding the marketing strategy. We all agreed that we should target the masternodes audience at the beginning for several reasons:
Thanks to all the participants!
