DECENT’s November to Remember

November 19, 2018

As Christmas music is starting to be played at our local shopping malls, DECENT is saddling up for a big end of 2019, and just past halfway through November, we’ve been making some big moves already. From industry-leading conferences in China, Korea and the USA, to a hackathon in Russia and a huge DCore announcement about ALAX swapping over to our platform, it’s looking like a momentous month for us.

Eastern Rising
Our Founder, Matej Michalko is getting quite comfortable with making appearances in China on a regular basis. This month, he came back to attend the 6th edition of the China Jiangsu Conference for International Technology Transfer and Commercialization (CITTC) in Nanjing 2018. The focus for Matej was presenting DCore as a blockchain solution for many of the innovation areas within the province of Jiangsu.

While this was happening, Michal Geci and James Xu represented DCore further north in China’s capital, Beijing. Michal is our Head of Innovations and James is in charge of business development for greater China. At the ITTC conference in Beijing, Michal and James were able to bring DECENT’s technology to a new audience and promote blockchain and its various use cases.

China wasn’t the only Asian country that we impacted in November, as John Oh attended and presented at the Bit-Z Global Ecological Alliance Conference in South Korea to promote digital currency in the Korean market.

Rocking to Poland
Boulder, Colorado is known as a beautiful, natural place surrounded by mountains. It also happens to be one of the more progressive cities in the US and the host of Decentralize Startup Weekend which is hosted by Techstars, one of the largest tech accelerators in North America, and we were extremely excited to be a sponsor of the event. Our advisor Daniel Riddell was given the chance to be a judge on the panel in addition to speaking to the audience about the potential of DCore.

Over in Krakow, Poland, one of our most loyal supporters, who also happens to be a DCT miner, organized a meetup at Steemfest – a Steemit community-organized festival. Stories like these are always amazing to hear because it means that our community genuinely believes in the technological foundation and business use cases of DCore. Thank you RoelandP for organizing the event, and hopefully we will see more in the future.

Rapid-Fire Round
ALAX, the mobile gaming platform built on DCore, has officially switched from Ethereum to DCore. If you haven’t had a chance to do the token swap yet, or aren’t quite sure how to do it, you can find the full token swap guideline here.

A Q3 tech recap video has been uploaded to our YouTube channel! We hope you all like the new video concept we’ve initiated, as we are looking into producing better and more engaging videos for our community. If you have any ideas or questions you want us to answer in video form, please feel free to reach out and let us know!

Lastly, one quick announcement! The 2nd to last leg of our hackathon series just finished in Moscow, Russia over the weekend of November 16-18. We will be giving a full recap including all the projects and winners shortly, so stay tuned!
