SelfKey Progress Report for September
September was another fantastic month for the SelfKey Foundation as we added more jurisdictions to the Bank Accounts Marketplace.
Hello and welcome to another monthly progress report. September was another strong month in which more than 20 jurisdictions were added to the Bank Accounts Marketplace, SelfKey was nominated for an award, and became a member of CryptoUK. Let’s dive in.
Adding 20+ jurisdictions to the Bank Accounts Marketplace
In August we launched the third Marketplace within the Wallet: Bank Accounts. Here you can research, compare and register for both personal and corporate Bank accounts from all over the world. When we launched, we started with two jurisdictions – Hong Kong and Singapore.
In September we added more than 20 excellent jurisdictions, including Switzerland, The Cayman Islands, Czech Republic and Puerto Rico. The more countries available in the Marketplace, the more likely you are to find your ideal place for a corporate or personal bank account.

SelfKey becomes a member of CryptoUK
As blockchain technology continues to mature, it is vital that stakeholders come together to defend the interests of the industry. CryptoUK was launched in 2018 and is the UK’s self-regulatory trade association representing the cryptoasset sector.
Members, comprising leading companies from across the sector, believe that cryptoassets can help enhance the way we undertake financial transactions, to the benefit of consumers, business and security.
We are very happy to be the newest member of CryptoUK, and aim to represent the best interests of the SelfKey community.
SelfKey partners with Livetree
SelfKey has grown rapidly in recent months and with Livetree, we are delighted to welcome another excellent partner to the ecosystem. Livetree is a media platform that allows you to discover new films and TV shows, while also sharing the experience with like-minded people.
In order to facilitate community interactions and engagements, Livetree utilises SED – their native utility token. Thanks to our new partnership, SelfKey users can claim 5 SED by signing up for a free account using this special link.
SelfKey Wallet to exit Beta on October 8th
On the 28th of June 2018, the SelfKey Identity Wallet officially launched as a public Beta. At the time, the Wallet primarily allowed you to manage your ERC20 tokens and create a SelfKey ID.
Since then, the team has been working tirelessly to launch the Marketplace, create new identity standards and make the Wallet even more user-friendly. With the successful launch of the Bank Accounts Marketplace in August, and the Incorporations Marketplace prior to that, the Wallet now delivers far more capabilities than a typical Beta release.
Therefore we are excited to announce that the full version of the SelfKey Identity Wallet, including a subtle redesign, will be released on the 8th of October. Download the Wallet today to make sure not to miss it.
