Welcome Fusionites to the March edition of the Fusion Newsletter.

After a highly productive February, March was a huge month jam-packed with news across all of Fusion’s verticals.

March Summary

A Note from Fusion’s Head of Product Strategy, John Liu.

‘Over the past few months, I have been engaged with companies across different industries, exploring how Fusion can improve their specific workflows. When you think about it, just about all financial transactions involve an element of time. The time component is generally set out in the terms of a paper contract and often involves middle-men that benefit from asymmetries of information. Powered by create asset, time-lock and quantum swap, we can build out a large set of cross-industry financial use-cases on the Fusion protocol that not only make the transaction process more efficient and transparent, but also create new opportunities for value exchange that previously weren’t possible. Anything from asset rentals, debt instruments, entertainment licensing and more!’

Check out the ‘5 Use-Cases for a Time-Based Transaction Ledger’ video below to get a deeper understanding of the ideas we are exploring on the product side at Fusion.’

On March 28th, Fusion achieved a major technical milestone, launching the highly anticipated Payable Stage Network 2.0. The 2.0 delivery was a gradual process of carefully considered technical improvements that are described here and also introduced new features, quantum swap and asset enhancements.

Fusion’s partnership with Automotive eXchange Platform was featured in Mainstream (MarketWatch, MorningStar), Crypto (CoinDesk) and Auto-focused (Automotive Digest) online media publications.

Together, Fusion and AXP will bring data accuracy and transparency to the $2.8 Trillion auto industry whilst providing greater financing opportunity for both lenders and borrowers. The first step of the partnership is to digitize AXP’s existing data and asset base consisting of 10.5 Million vehicles and 305 Thousand registered car buyers.

The Fusion Product team have been working with AXP to build out a Proof-of-Concept. Progress was shared on the frameworks that are being implemented to create Person, Vehicle and Loan assets within the Fusion ecosystem.

The partnership was explored in-depth in a community AMA with Fusion Head of Product Strategy, John Liu and CEO of AXP Max Kane.
