Our booth at the Beyond Blocks Summit was packed to the brim with attendees who were all curious to discover what COTI was all about. Shahaf had the opportunity to present on stage and at their after party for anyone and everyone interested in hearing about our decentralized payment solution. He also held a talk during the Blockchain Partners Summit that took place a few days after on the 21st.

Our strategic advisors TLDR were also in tow and had the chance to participate in the Blockchain World Cup 2018, where COTI and TLDR beat out all the other teams, while maxing out their lungs and losing the finals in the process.

Down to business
We are exploring numerous potential engagements with leading strategic investors and regional partners located in China, Korea, Japan, Thailand and more. A handful of companies, particularly in the Korean automobile sector, demonstrated interest in developing their own payment network based on the COTI Trustchain instead of developing their own infrastructure. Developers have already approached us to explore how they can build upon the Trustchain with additional use cases e.g. decentralized storage, smart contracts, IoT, micropayments and more.

COTI featured across countless Korean media channels, including Korea’s largest national newspaper. We also participated in a number of interviews to spread the word about how COTI PAY will be poised to disrupt traditional payment systems while solving the downfalls of major cryptocurrencies.
