Celebrating the One Year Anniversary of Conceal.Network

Conceal Network
May 23 · 7 min read

One year ago, Conceal emerged as a community project with a mission to provide a solid peer-to-peer privacy protected digital cash solution within the Cryptonote protocol and represent a step towards the democratization of decentralized banking.

We started our journey with a bold move. We invited everyone who recognized the need of fairer, distributed and transparent way of having a decentralized and privacy protected alternative to traditional banking. Since that time, we have been working hard on developing the Conceal platform, guided by our passion for blockchain and its potential. Now, we’re happy to announce our 1st Year Anniversary, reflect on our accomplishments and invite you to celebrate the first Birthday of the Conceal Network.

Reflecting Back on 2018

Over the last year, conceal has evolved from a simple idea into one of the most solid Cryptonote projects. We’ve watched how our project laid the groundwork for the development of decentralized banking by offering additional features all while preserving the security, integrity, privacy and reliability of the Cryptonote protocol.

Let’s take a look back at our major milestones during the past year and discuss future plans as we enter the next phase of the Conceal Network project.

Message From the Team

We started Conceal with the lofty goal of creating a full-fledged platform that allowed the potential of the Cryptonote protocol and blockchain technology to be realized. Like most ideas, it was unclear if we’d be truly successful with this at the time, but we decided to keep things simple, and focus on building and enhancing the technology, day-by-day, and working with the needs of the users of the product as they arose. A whirlwind of a year down the road, we can look back with gratitude to the many that put their faith in Conceal Network by collaborating, mining, buying it, spreading the word, etc. We’re proud of what we’ve been able to do together so far, and are excited about the tremendous growth and change that 2019/20 can bring for blockchain technology adoption, and for Conceal itself.

Looking Forward to 2019

It has been a great year, and we have even bigger plans for 2019: hiring new developers, releasing the mobile wallet, launching Conceal.Pay on mainnet, enable decentralized banking over the cloud, working with exchanges to support $CCX, working with other business who want to build their products on Conceal, and much more.

We’ve learned a lot, heard great feedback from our community, and continue to work hard every day on fulfilling our mission to become the world’s most advanced decentralized banking platform. We believe now, more than ever, that Conceal can help transform the field of banking for the better.

We’re doing our best to create innovative and exciting features, and the results speak for themselves. Our community is growing fast and we want to thank you all for taking part and giving us the confidence to move forward. Whether you’ve been with us from the start or have just begun your journey with Conceal, thank you for being a part of the our thriving community.

We’d love for you to celebrate with us on Twitter using the hashtag #Happy1stAnniversaryConceal.

Let’s make this a year of $CCX. Happy anniversary!
