January was also a busy month for partnerships. We listed KEY on the growing digital asset exchange Hotbit. The platform has over 500 different trading pairs and will now add KEY trading pairs to further improve liquidity for our community. Furthermore this partnership will increase awareness of SelfKey among digital asset holders and will likely help to grow the SelfKey Identity Ecosystem further.
We also partnered with the digital asset exchange InstaSwap to add additional fiat trading pairs to their platform. We believe that it is crucial to make the on- and offramp as easy as possible when it comes to KEY adoption. KEY/USD, KEY/EUR and KEY/GBP trading pairs are now available.
Finally, we partnered with Play Royal to run a giveaway, involving $6,000 in prizes. Giveaways are an excellent way to increase awareness and we have been delighted with the reception so far. You can learn more about it here.
In case you missed our big announcement last month, we released version 1.4.4 of the SelfKey Wallet and have a new partner. Korporatio is available as our exclusive vendor for the Seychelles Islands in the Incorporations Marketplace. Opening a business in the Seychelles is now possible in just a few clicks through the SelfKey Wallet. This is excellent news for our community, because the Seychelles offer an attractive jurisdiction in which to form a company.
Our partner Korporatio is on a mission to revolutionize the corporate world with blockchain technology and foster an ecosystem of decentralized blockchain-enabled legal entities. Based in the Seychelles Islands, Korporatio is perfectly placed to service our community in this jurisdiction.
