IoTeX Monthly Update - April 2021

The latest IoTeX updates delivered directly to your inbox.

Hey IoTeX Community!

Welcome to IoTeX's new and revamped monthly newsletter. You’ll find that it is filled with our latest announcements, educational content, helpful hints and tips, upcoming events, and everything you need to know about the ever-growing IoTeX ecosystem. We want this newsletter to be valuable for you so, please share your feedback and suggestions to help us improve.

In April 2018, IoTeX launched our very first code release. Last month, we celebrated our 3-year anniversary in style with a special livestream AMA with 10+ members of the IoTeX core team! We can't believe it’s been 3 years of growing IoTeX and our team here at IoTeX has never been more committed to our original mission to make the Internet of Trusted Things a reality. None of this would be possible if it weren't for our amazing community of users, partners, and enterprises. We want to thank you all!

With that being said, April was the biggest month yet for IoTeX. We had numerous announcements including Travala & Polygon partnerships, new versions of ioTube & Burn-Drop tokenomics, and of course the official launch of Mainnet v1.2, the most advanced version of the IoTeX blockchain yet!
