DCore’s 1st Birthday!

DECENT celebrates yet another major milestone event, the 1st birthday of DCore!

Wow, time has really flown by! We can’t believe it’s already been 1 year since we launched our blockchain platform DCore! We have accomplished quite a lot in a short amount of time. Let’s take a look back at the past year from the very first block to over 6 Million blocks today.
June 30th, 2017 marked the launch of our own proprietary blockchain platform DCore when the very first block was mined. This huge milestone set us up for a year of amazing accomplishments. In September 2017 we won big at the at the European Startup Awards, taking home 2 prizes: the Slovak Startup of the Year Award and Best Newcomer Award.

In November 2017 we organized and hosted our first major blockchain event, the Unchained Conference in Hong Kong. This international event established our brand as a provider of an advanced blockchain platform ready for real-world use cases and strengthened our ties to the thriving tech community in Asia.

February 2018 we announced a new partnership with Dragonfly and a joint venture blockchain project ALAX which would be built on DCore. Then in March 2018, we launched a developer specific DCore testnet allowing anyone to create their decentralized vision in a safe, secure and risk-free environment. ALAX became the first blockchain project to take full advantage of our DCore testnet and explore benefits like custom token creation, large file size, extremely fast block creation and transaction time, and so much more.

We hosted our very first Blockchain Pioneers Global Hackathon in Bratislava, Slovakia in May 2018. This event saw some of the most talented developers, programmers and blockchain enthusiasts from around the world collaborate together to create brilliant blockchain projects. We were extremely impressed with the top-notch talent and can’t wait for our second edition, coming in July.

Earlier this month we released a brand new DCore Miner Voting Tool making it easier than ever for DCT holders to participate in ensuring the future of DCore. Also, our website got a complete overhaul with new graphics, information and design layout. The new website refines our company message as a leading blockchain ecosystem, providing all of the tools and technologies needed for projects and businesses to build decentralized applications for real-world use cases.

DCore had quite an exciting first year of existence, with many milestones, events, and announcements. We can’t wait for what’s in store for next year!
