Monthly Recap – April 2018

May 04, 2018

In the month of April, DECENT prioritized outreach in Korea, followed up with future investor relations for the ALAX project, updated and improved DCore, promoted our brand at conferences in 3 different continents, and expanded our presence in Asia. Without wasting any time, let’s dive right in and explore a little deeper.

BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

After a successful ALAX TGE, the team presented at the 8th Blockchain Symposium while also meeting with a local crypto investment fund, Hashed and DECENT added a new member to the team, who is now responsible for running business development and partnerships in Korea.

Additionally, at the Cannes MipTV conference some very promising use cases were presented and we are excited to see what may come out of it. The team has continued to pursue investors for ALAX and are expanding our offices in Hong Kong’s technology district, Cyberport.

All of these partnerships are rather promising and we will continue to press forward on partnerships, projects, and exchanges and as soon as we are able to inform our community, this information will be disclosed to the public.
