Monthly Recap – November 2019

December 13, 2019

As the last full month of fall comes to an end and winter approaches, DECENT has more than enough hot news to keep our loyal community thriving. 

Last month, we:

  • Made headlines by being chosen to represent the Slovak Republic in technology and blockchain innovation around the globe
  • Embarked on a US roadshow spreading blockchain awareness across the Atlantic
  • Updated our IOS and Android wallets as well as our website
  • Our CEO, Matej Michalko, was featured in prominent magazines such as the Entrepreneur and Cryptoslate

Let’s dive deeper into DECENT’s November recap!

Chosen to Lead

This month, we joined the IT Association of Slovakia, a well-known conglomerate of the leading companies in the IT industry. Our acknowledgment by the association further establishes our brand as a leading tech company, and we look forward to continuing to spreading awareness and education of blockchain technology locally as well as worldwide.

Since we are on the subject of spreading awareness, it’s worth to mention our involvement in our home front of Bratislava, Slovakia. This month we attended the ITAPA conference and participated in an important panel discussion where we addressed the benefits of blockchain technology to prestigious, top government representatives of the Slovak Republic.

In Shenzhen, China, we joined the Blockchain Centre of Excellence and jointly sponsored a Forbes networking event aimed at promoting startups and businesses from Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic to Chinese companies. 

Across the Atlantic

We were honored to represent the entirety of the Slovak Republic’s technology and blockchain innovation sector, as we traveled across the Atlantic to the United States. Thanks to our strategic partners at Sario Agency, we visited the Dell HQ in Austin, Texas, and Industry 4.0 Conference in Detroit, Michigan.

We held a discussion session, titled “Slovakia meets the motor city: Industry 4.0 automotive solutions in Central Europe,” and were thrilled to have a chance to prove that Slovakia has a rightful place as an innovation leader in the blockchain space. 

Upgrades and Improvements

We kicked off the month with some nice little upgrades to our wallet family!

Both the DECENT iOS and Android wallets received improved support for the Chinese language (simplified), while the iOS wallet also gained the option to pay transaction fees in custom tokens and the functionality for users to search in their transaction history.

The wallets aren’t the only things that got an upgrade. Our website also received some love this month with an added segment of our homepage displaying all of our latest products, services offered, verticals as well as various awards DECENT has won over the past few years. 

Founder’s Profound Insights

Speaking of our CEO and Founder, Matej Michalko has always been an advocate of educating the public about the uses and benefits that blockchain can bring to the world. His insights and opinions have become rather popular as can be seen by the repeat appearances of his guest blogs in popular online magazines. November was no different, as his articles on blockchain in China and replacing the notary can be found in The Entrepreneur and CryptoSlate respectively.

November was a critical month for us at DECENT, setting the precedent that will take us to the end of the year. If you enjoy reading these updates, let us know in our Telegram channel or write us on social media! We love hearing from our community.
