Exchanges you can trade Raptoreum
They have already been added to 8 exchanges, and Binance did actually start following them on Twitter a couple of months ago, which it may suggest they are in talks of being added to the largest crypto exchange, which can make its impact quite quickly on the price. Everyone is still waiting for the official announcement.
On the negative side, their Roadmap doesn’t seem to have lots of updates upcoming. Nevertheless, hopefully, they increase the team after the ICO and deliver Smart Contracts which will be a big win and continue to add new milestones on the roadmap.

I myself tried mining it for a couple of days (~5 days) on an AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2920x and this is how it went.
Is it good or bad? It’s up to you to judge.
