April saw continued momentum in the digital currency sector as well as great traction here at Bamboo. We are excited to share that we saw strong growth of our user base in April with a 37% increase which demonstrates the widening interest in the sector.

The major event for April was participating in Blockchain Week in Sydney. We hosted a networking event with our partners, Mine Digital. It was great to see many familiar faces and to get a glimpse of what’s coming in the industry.

📈📉 Market performance

Ethereum has pushed onto all-time highs, ending the month at 39% up. Bitcoin has experienced a much needed cool off, ending the month 6% down, while Gold and Silver ended the month 4% and 8% up respectively.

🎉 $BAM has now launched on the new Kyber DMM exchange.

As you may be aware, the operational entity of Bamboo was acquired mid last year by the seed investors from the token sale. Since then, we have been working hard to establish the business functions and grow the company.

We have decided to honour the vision of the BAM token as a utility token on the Bamboo platform. We have had to make some changes with regards to the token’s use case due to the increase in Ethereum gas fee’s. These features will be announced once ready for launch.

We expect it will take some time for liquidity to build in the market for trading, but strongly believe that the token’s utility will grow in tandem with the business. For reference, here is our etherscan link.
