In February, Swarm raised $6 million in a private token sale and following the mainnet soft launch, a public BZZ token sale will take place on June 14. Just recently, reports stemming from China indicate that Swarm is becoming very popular in the region and Filecoin and Chia miners are preparing to join Swarm’s network.

Chinese Journalist Says Swarm Popularity in China ‘Based on Belief’

Regional reporter and 8btc contributor Priyeshu Garg details that there “has been a huge increase in the number of Swarm groups popping up on Wechat.” Reports on Chinese social media verify Garg’s claims and the reporter notes that Swarm’s “popularity is based only on belief.” So far, Swarm started as a proof-of-concept created by its lead developer Viktor Tron and moved on to a testnet and a few releases.

“So-called Swarm ‘believers’ [are] actively preaching on other social platforms as well. Some Filecoin groups have also reportedly been converted into Swarm groups.” Garg’s report insists.

The Ethereum Swarm project is buzzing in China according to regional reports from Weixin and 8btc.

Digital currency networks like Chia and Filecoin have been very popular in China specifically because the two network’s offer different mining solutions. Bittorrent creator Bram Cohen’s crypto project Chia sparked hard drive and SSD shortages in China earlier this year. During the BZZ private placement token sale, BZZ tokens sold for $0.25 per unit.

The public offering indicates that BZZ will sell for $1.92 per unit increasing a whopping 668% in value compared to the private placement. According to the website, U.S. residents cannot participate in the BZZ public sale. U.S. visitors of the website coinlist.co where the BZZ sale is taking place, gets a warning that says: “Sorry, this content is not available in your location.”

The codebase Bee v0.6 release is required for all existing Bee node operators and for users who want to participate in the airdrop. Anyone running a prior version (v0.5.x.) must upgrade or they won’t be able to connect to the network. The 0.6 version release will contain features such as light nodes, postage stamps, free bandwidth allowance, and reupload content.
