[IoTeX Bytes] Monthly Update - June 2021
The latest IoTeX updates delivered directly to your inbox.
🤖 Greetings IoTeX Community 🖖🏻
As the crypto industry rebounded from a mini-bear cycle in June, IoTeX doubled down on building and had one of our most impactful months to date with new network tools and core infrastructure upgrades across the IoTeX Network. From ioTube v4 for cross-chain interoperability with Polygon, to the Alpha release of mimo DEX v2, to full Web3 & MetaMask compatibility, IoTeX has laid the groundwork for a monumental second half of 2021. As we speak, we are finalizing a number of new exchange listings, integrations with top projects, and tools for users/devs that we can’t wait to share with you — there is so much to look forward to as an IoTeX community member!
In addition to new technology, we have also been laser-focused on onboarding new team members that will bring IoTeX to the next level. At the beginning of 2021, one of our top priorities was to complement our all-star tech team with world-class marketers, designers, and community managers. In this spirit, we are happy to introduce some incredible new talents to our team.
Please give a warm IoTeX welcome to Art Malkov, our new Head of Growth, and Alexis Baydoun, our new Senior Designer! Art brings 10+ years of experience in digital marketing at top blockchain projects, and will spearhead new hyper-growth initiatives for IoTeX in the blockchain space and beyond. Alexis brings 7+ years of Graphic Design, UI/UX, and 3D Animation experience and will revamp IoTeX’s brand identity and user-facing tools. Look out for more top-tier hires soon!
🌉 Our cross-chain bridge ioTube v4 has been upgraded to support two-way token swaps between IoTeX ↔️ Ethereum, BSC, and now Polygon! IoTeX is now one of the most connected blockchains in the world with new tokens/liquidity flowing to IoTeX from top blockchains every day.
👽 Say hello to mimo v2, a new DeFi protocol that enables XRC20-XRC20 liquidity pools, low slippage for traders, and extensibility for devs to build new DeFi products and tools. mimo v2 has launched its Alpha release and has an exciting roadmap to fuel the next wave of DeFi on IoTeX.
🦊 IoTeX is now fully Web3 & MetaMask compatible! Both users and developers can use their favorite Ethereum tools to interact with IoTeX DApps just by setting up an RPC endpoint. Setup is seamless and takes only a few minutes (no dev experience required!) — our new tutorial shows you how.
💻 IoTeX partnered with Gitcoin on the GR10 Hackathon and sponsor three developer bounties to build new tools/DApps for Babel API, ioTube, and Pebble Tracker. We kicked things off with a webinar from the IoTeX core team that explained “Building on IoTeX with Web3” — a must-watch for devs!
🤝 $IOTX has grown to be one of the most active tokens on Binance Smart Chain and is ready to expand even more thanks to new partnerships with RAMP DeFi and LaunchZone. These top-tier projects will unlock new liquidity/trading opportunities and introduce the BSC ecosystem to IoTeX.
