August Monthly Report

DAEX (Digital Assets Exchange) is a distributed digital asset clearing ecosystem built using a blockchain-based multi-asset clearing and settlement protocol. By decoupling assets and transactions, the system will provide exchanges, corporations and individuals with a full range of clearing and wallet solutions which address key issues in the digital asset ecosystem, such as credibility, availability and the security of their digital assets. In this way, the ecosystem will protect the interests of investors while promoting the fair and stable development of the industry as a whole. Key DAEX partners include Qtum Foundation, 8 Decimal Capital, DFJ Dragon Fund, IDEL, J One Capital, JRR and various other prominent investment organizations.

This August monthly report will include information regarding the the 1 million DAX bounty campaigns, the DAEX public sale, progress on the DAEX Wallet development, DAX token exchange listing, Hong Kong and Korean Meetups we hosted, strategic partnerships/investments and more.

As a smart distributed management solution for multiple digital assets, the DAEX Wallet is a vital component of the DAEX ecosystem. DAX is already listed on seven exchanges, with DAX tokens set to be a key component when it comes to reducing transfer fees on these exchanges in the future. At the same time, we are giving 1,000 exchanges and corporations an opportunity to test the wallet in a trial run. Exchanges and corporations can login on the DAEX Wallet website and apply to test the product.

BCEX: https://www.bcex.ca

INDODAX: https://indodax.com

SEADAX: https://www.seadex.io

Part 3: DAEX News & Events

On August 1, we officially entered the Australian market by investing in the Australian exchange XBrick, deploying the DAEX Wallet and listing DAX on their exchange. The DAEX Fund also became a sponsoring institution for XBrick that will recommend suitable projects to be listed on their exchange. XBrick will also run an official clearing node for the clearing chain when it is launched next year.

Shortly after, we also formed a partnership with Tokenomy, an exchange based in Singapore. Tokenomy officially became the first clearing node for DAEX in Singapore and listed DAX on their exchange. They will also deploy the DAEX Wallet and receive support from the DAEX Fund in listing recommended projects on their platform.

Tokenomy was started by the founding members from INDODAX (formerly known as Bitcoin Indonesia), one of the largest bitcoin and blockchain startups in South East Asia with more than 1.3 million registered users.

We also made a strategic investment in blockchain service provider HyperQuart located in Russia. Russia also has a core node for the DAEX clearing chain after Indonesia, Thailand, Australia and Singapore. This will help DAEX expand its market presence in the global region and expand DAEX’s global ecosystem layout.

Another strategic investment took place in IAME, a decentralised identification framework.

We signed a co-operation agreement with blockchain services provider Sophon Capital Community to optimize services given to their investors. Through extensive co-operative efforts, we will work to create a more complete and professional blockchain services system.

A strategic investment was made in blockchain security group BUGX.IO, further diversifying the company’s global network of partners in the blockchain industry. We will team up with BUGX.IO to build their global security ecosystem. Through this partnership, BUGX.IO will bring its world-class blockchain security expertise to the DAEX project, ensuring a safer environment for all participants in the network.
