Have you met XIO Network?
The past two months, I have been staking some 1UP I earned in the Uptrennd portal through XIO Network. It's a fairly simple process, and I love how XIO enables us to join in on the funding for projects like this.
If you haven't looked at staking yet, it is incredibly simple. Here's how it works. You earn or purchase whatever currency you would like to stake, in my cash some 1UP earned here on Uptrennd. Then, I look into XIO Network and find the staking address for Uptrennd. The cool part is, you can do two different things concerning Uptrennd.
1. You can stake 1UP in the portal and in return gain XIO tokens.
2. You can stake XIO in another portal and gain 1UP tokens.
It's a great project geared towards helping startups and supporting the growing ecosystems that are crucial for survival. XIO Network is still young and has huge potential for developing better ways to help fund startups, rather than holding ICO's and going through that possible mess.
If you have checked out XIO Network yet, I highly recommend you do! They also have a great community with lots of discussion on Telegram: XIO Blockchain Startup Network
Keep on Uptrennding!!

XIO Network was created as the anti-ICO, in that there is no selling of tokens for capital. Rather blockchain startups join the incubator for guidance and help with marketing, user adoption, industry awareness, and connecting startups with our partners.
