Citadel.one Ecosystem Update — March 2021
Comprehensive overview of all news, updates and metrics of the past month.
Citadel.One is proud to introduce its Monthly Ecosystem Update series! In this series, we will discuss how the Citadel.One platform grew, what changes have been made to the services we offer, and how we did in terms of performance overall during March 2021.
We will begin first with the metrics report and important milestones highlights:
Over the past month Citadel.one has achieved a lot in terms of growth of our user base and social media community.
We now have more communities around the world as we have begun new Chinese and Russian communities (view the announcement here), and we have equally experienced massive growth on our social media platforms, for example, we hit 1000 followers on Twitter and are still growing!
Next up, we made a lot of updates to the Citadel.One platform to make the overall experience much more enjoyable.
Here are some changes we made to the platform:
The new sidebar offers increased functionality and ease of use, with a softer design that is easier on the eyes and more features on display in the same amount of space. Let’s see this update in more details down below.
Address List creation and Favourite tokens
Citadel.one now allows users to create lists of addresses. This includes all the addresses for a particular network which are currently added to the Citadel.one platform.
In addition, Citadel.one now allows users to add tokens to their favourites list for easy access during certain actions.
Assigning aliases to your address
Citadel.one now also allows setting of aliases to all addresses to allow for easier identification: e.g you have a different address for savings and investments, so you can name one “Savings” and name the other “Investments”.
ERC-20 Token support
Citadel.One has added support of over 850 ERC-20 tokens.This will allow users to use a variety of tokens on the platform and will remove any possible limitations that were present by the lack of ERC-20 tokens.
Transak has been added as a Citadel.One payment processing partner. Users can now choose between Moonpay.io and Transak when looking to buy crypto with cash. This allows for versatility and even more options when a user wants to buy crypto on the platform using fiat.
Custom timeframe for balance history
Users can now select specific timeframes to display their balance history. This allows users to have even more granular control over their account information.

Citadel.one is a non-custodial Proof-of-Stake platform for the management and storage of crypto assets. Users can create public addresses for all supported networks with one seed phrase, connect their Ledger or Trezor device, or import an address generated by another wallet.
The analytical dashboard provides relevant information on wallets’ balances and networks’ main metrics. In Citadel.one, we standardize the semantics, making interactions with the platform as easy as possible. The same goes for network metrics. By using universal terms, we are making it easier for users to understand and compare networks.
One of the main functions of the Citadel.one platform is participation in the PoS consensus — users can stake and delegate their assets, claim rewards, and follow the latest network proposals in the voting tab.
Citadel.one offers its users instant cryptocurrency exchange services that allow fast and secure crypto assets swap. It is also possible to buy and sell crypto with a credit or debit card. Citadel.one users can track rewards, withdrawals, transfers, and deposits across all supported networks and add comments to these transactions.
Among PoS platforms, Citadel.one supports BAND network($BAND) Secret Network ($SCRT), Cosmos ($ATOM), ICON ($ICX), IOST, Orbs, and Tezos ($XTZ). We also support Ethereum, Bitcoin, and Tether ($USDT) for our users’ convenience. Mobile and desktop versions, new networks, including Polkadot and Ontology, are scheduled for the upcoming updates. Furthermore, delving into the idea of true decentralization, we envision Citadel.one a decentralized autonomous organization and a genuinely community-owned platform in the nearest future.
