Monthly Recap – January 2019

February 01, 2019

Goodbye 2018, Hello 2019
January around the world usually means fresh beginnings and many New Year’s resolutions. After such a stellar year in 2018 during which we managed to hit multiple milestones and launched several key products, we’re already off to a good start in 2019. In our China office, January also marks the last month before the annual Chinese New Year, which lands on the first week of February this year. Despite the upcoming holidays though, our team did not slow down one bit this month. Nonetheless, we do hope everyone celebrating the end of the lunar calendar can enjoy their well-deserved holiday with their loved ones.

An End of an Era, the Beginning of a New One
Not only does 2019 mark the turn of the calendar year, but January has officially seen the closing of our heralded DECENT Go platform. As of January 29, 2019, DGo has officially been shut down. Also, the ALAX token swap to DCore came to on January 31, 2019. In case you missed your chance to swap your tokens, contact us at [email protected] and we’ll gladly help you out!

On the community side, we were able to lavish praise and support onto the many DECENT-related community projects in the works. At the forefront is the launch of the community wallet for both Android and iOS. The wallet allows you to hold DCT and custom tokens, vote from the list of your favorite miners, and so much more!

Events and Meetups
With events slowing down in Asia due to the upcoming holidays, we spent our month attending conferences around the globe. Specifically, we attended both the TNABC – The North American Bitcoin Conference in Miami as well as the Security Tokens Realised summit in London. In addition, our very own Head of Innovations, Michal Geci, was invited to address the audience at the NAB Futures conference held in Seattle. Lastly, our business development team attended CyberTech in Tel Aviv where we ran a booth throughout the three-day event. We know the vast amount of events may seem exhausting to the outside world, but seeing the results and business growth as a result of our outreach has been very rewarding.

Speaking of hackathons, our Russian partners and co-host of our Moscow Blockchain Pioneers Hackathon, HumanVenture, hosted an alumni meet-up this month. The teams were able to share new progress, update each other on recent learnings, and discuss further community developments. We’re eagerly awaiting the amazing results from their finished products!
